The Turro.Org Foundation is taking place in the near future, you can read about it in Organization -> Foundation. The organization solely might not be attractive for business opportunities: free software and basic documentation will be made available for system administrators and for developers, see Documents -> Javadoc -> Full report as example.

But things change if you stop selling software and, instead, bring support and services. Then Turro.Org Foundation will be clearly a good choice. Here are some pros:

Today showed up in a mailed article that Steve Jobs owned a patent on glass staircases. Did he had in mind fabricate staircases? Glass staircases? Or did he saw somebody with one and thought: What the hell! Let's put some money on this and wait for future rewards. Again came to my head the time when Microsoft wanted to patent the fact of writing documents in XML format... even before they use it and after the Open Document Foundation created the open document format and OpenOffice ship it as standard! Crazy world, indeed.

Was amazing to discover Google+ Circles. Despite some people claiming that Google+ force users to use their real names instead of a pseudonim, I think Google contacts is sound and Circles a beatiful idea. And if dealing with real identities, still better. Is such a good idea that integrating BrightSide Contacts with Google Apps and Social Groups with Circles is taking a more defined picture.

Apart of the single sign-on feature, Google is giving a common place for contacts, synchronized with Android devices. With Circles you have multiple FB in a single account.

The first thing I was wondering about when remodeling this web site was its final purpose. Yes, I want to distribute free software and open source software, which might not be the same. And yes, I want this software to be as good as posible. Who not? The question is how to legally achieve this.

Now you may wonder why not simply make available software downloads and accept contributions? Well, I suspect nobody will be interested improving source code owned by a single developer. What if I change my mind nowadays?

The Web is moving... we move along.

With the arrival of the ready-to-use, easy-to-implement AJAX frameworks web sites reworked their concept. From being simple web pages turned into real applications. No matter what the problem is.

We found ourselves developing a financials module that will only run within a browser. No installation required. No executables... God! No executables!
