Bill Gates: The skills you need to succeed

I agree 100% with everything Bill has written here.

Yes I'm a FOSS fanatic but I admire Bill Gates more than pretty much any other technology or business person. MSFT certainly pulled a few unfair business practices along the way, but his passion for winning and passion for finding a better way have had more impact on the world than most other things.

Plus the dude's running around giving away like $30B for really good causes like injections without needles.

Reclaiming the ESB

Paul Fremantle has written an article on Reclaiming the ESB .. this is somewhat in response to Steve Vinoski's original writeup against the ESB concept. Gotta read it if you are into this stuff :-).

Sri Lankan part of Nobel Peace prize team!

The Vice Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore, is a Sri Lankan! AFAIK this is the first Nobel Peace prize Sri Lankan has been part of.
