World is Flat

Last week, I attended a conference here in the bayarea where Thomas Friedman gave the keynote speech.

He started out saying, "while I am sleeping, the world changed". What he meant was that after 9/11 he was covering all the 9/11 related news and missing the changes happening outside in place like Bangalore & Beijing.

He concluded the talk saying "world is flat" and it's a global economy.

I haven't read his book yet and looking forward to read it,

Aspect, Object & Services

Today the core web infrastructure inside the datacenter is build using object oriented systems. The 2 major platforms J2EE & .NET are object oriented systems.

In my perspective, in next 5-7 years this "object only" paradigm will change inside the datacenter and Aspect & Service will also play a key role in building the next generation web systems. There is no doubt that objects will play the central role but Aspects will play a bottom-up role to remove the non-functional application logic outside of the system and Services will play a top-down role to construct "abstraction" on top of the object systems to send "messages" over the network.
