Thanks to Matt here at the Network for the tip on this site called the Web Economy BS Generator. It is very funny and may provide you with the verbiage you need for your next high pressure presentation.

For example:
It is important to synthesize virtual functionalities, incubate intuitive bandwidth and monetize viral interfaces to achieve this years sales goals. In addition we must morph distributed metrics and disintermediate open-source content so that we can innovate and maximize frictionless initiatives. lastly, its critical that everyone on the team can integrate next-generation e-business while embracing web-enabled action items.

9.8 Million laptops will be stolen or lost in the next 2 years according to Tadayoshi Kohno. With that in mind a research project at the University of Washington has created the Adeona project named after the Roman goddess of safe returns. The lead Ph.D. students on the project are Gabriel Maganis and Thomas Ristenpart, working with UW faculty members Tadayoshi Kohno and Arvind Krishnamurthy.

Adeona has three main properties:

  • Private: Adeona uses state-of-the-art cryptographic mechanisms to ensure that the owner is the only party that can use the system to reveal the locations visited by a device.
  • Reliable: Adeona uses a community-based remote storage facility, ensuring retrievability of recent location updates.
  • Open source and free: Adeona's software is licensed under GPLv2. While your locations are secret, the tracking system's design is not.

I've been looking forward to this one. Ben Huh from icanhascheezburger.com is speaking at Gnomedex. His site is interesting to say the least and has caught fire over the past few months as more and more people are tapping into it. I have used images from the site in my blogs

The site traffic is nearly 50 million page impressions a month from zero in February of 2007. They get 5000 community submissions every day.

Things here at Gnomedex are off to a great start sitting with my friend Greg Cangialosi. Great to see everyone at the event. I will be blogging on Gnomedex content for the balance of the day and into the weekend. Started my day with coffee and a sunrise over the water.
