I’ll Give MongoDB Another Try. In Ten Years. | Diego Basch’s Blog – This gave me a nasty feeling about MongoDB. If something so elementary can be so wrong, what other problems could be lurking in there? I immediately switched to CouchDB (once again because it was pretty trivial), but if this were a serious project I’d be using Postgres
What The Numbers Show About Taxes and Economic Growth | Here & Now – Do tax cuts lead to economic growth? David Leonhardt of the The New York Times says the data does not support the claim.

HTML5 Storage Wars – localStorage vs. IndexedDB vs. Web SQL – If you're only deploying on mobile platforms, then Web SQL is a no-brainer.

Benchmarking Parallels, Fusion, and VirtualBox Against Boot Camp – The Mac Observer – In light of our recent tests, there should be no surprises in today’s results. Users who need the absolute best performance should natively boot Windows using Boot Camp.

I am a total Java geek that lives in Brookfield - WI (Milwaukee), making my living as an architect/developer, spending all my time with Java, J2EE, OO, Linux, and open source. In my spare time, when I am not in front of my computers, I spend every other minute with my other loves: My wife and daughter, books, music, guitars, Formula-1 racing and SCI-FI shows like StarGate and others.
At work, I spend most of my time dealing with architectural and security issues with plenty of work and personal play-time going into discovering the latest tool, framework, etc that will allow us to work faster, smarter and deliver better results. A lot of my time is also spent fire-fighting issues and coming up with solutions to interesting problems. :)
