  • Fun with EXIF Tags

    When viewing Google Drive photo albums in Google Plus they seem to be heavily reliant on EXIF tags to determine when a photo was taken, so much so that they’ll use the upload date instead of the file modification date that is safed in Google Drive as the photo creation date. This obviously screws up the order of photo albums when importing old photo albums. To fix issues with EXIF tags I’ve previously always relied on jhead to fix timezone issues. Turns out though that jhead will not create new EXIF tags, but only edit existing ones; clearly not what I wanted to do. So I looked around and…

    Scott Wilson
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:09 am
    This article first appears on CSO Online, on 7/16/2015.There is no question the rate of migration to cloud computing continues its meteoric rise. Eighty two percent of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy, up from seventy four percent in 2014 (RightScale State of the Cloud Survey, January 2015). As this shift lumbers ahead, security remains a major barrier to cloud services adoption.A recent CloudPassage survey of more than 250,000 respondents indicates that seventy one percent are planning or have implemented some kind of cloud environment. Almost half of the survey respondents said that…

    Stephan H Wissel
    26 Jul 2015 | 11:24 pm
    Websphere Content Manager (WCM) can aggregate information from various sources in many formats. A quick and dirty way to add Domino data is to use RSS. The simplest way is to add a page (not an XPage, a Page), define its content type as application/rss+xml and add a few lines to it: <rss version="2.0"> <channel> <title><Computed Value></title> <link><Computed Value>feed.xml</link> <description>Extraction of data from the Audience Governance database</description> <lastBuildDate><Computed Value></lastBuildDate>…
  • Midget Imaginaire - Scheinzwerg

    Stephan H Wissel
    15 Jul 2015 | 1:35 am
    The imaginary midget This is an attempt to transpose a concept deeply rooted in the German cultural context into another language. Bear with me. Over at Omnisophie Professor Dueck has a column titled "Scheinzwerge" (loosely translated: imaginative dwarfs|midgets|gnomes), dealing, besides others, with the Greek crisis. It draws heavily on a very German childhood classic "Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver". In this famous children book and string puppet play we meet Mr. Tur Tur who is a imaginative giant (Scheinriese). From a distance Mr. Tur Tur looks like a huge giant, but the closer you…
  • Validating JSON object

    Stephan H Wissel
    11 Jul 2015 | 10:45 am
    One of the nice tools for rapid application development in Bluemix is Node-RED which escaped from IBM research. One passes a msg JSON object between nodes that process (mostly) the msg.payload property. A feature I like a lot is the ability to use a http input node that can listen to a POST on an URL and automatically translates the posted form into a JSON object. The conversion runs non-discriminatory, so any field that is added to the form will end up in the JSON object. In a real world application that's not a good idea, an object shouldn't have unexpected properties. I had asked before,…
  • Random insights in Bluemix development (a.k.a Die Leiden des Jungen W)

    Stephan H Wissel
    29 Jun 2015 | 12:31 am
    Each platform comes with it's own little challenges, things that work differently than you expect. Those little things can easily steal a few hours. This post collects some of my random insights: Development cycle I'm a big fan of offline development. My preferred way is to use a local git repository and push my code to Bluemix DevOps service to handle compilation and deployment. It comes with a few caveats When you do anything beyond basic Java, you want to use Apache Maven. The dependency management is worth the learning curve. If you started with the Java boilerplate, you end up with an…
  • Investigating JNDI

    Stephan H Wissel
    18 Jun 2015 | 1:18 am
    When developing Java, locally or for Bluemix a best practise is to use JNDI to access resources and services you use. In Cloud Foundry all services are listed in the VCAP_SERVICES environment variable and could be parsed as JSON string. However this would make the application platform dependent, which is something you want to avoid. Typically a JNDI service requires to edit the server.xml to point to the right service. However editing the server.xml in Bluemix is something you do want to avoid as much as possible. Luckily the Websphere Java Liberty Buildpack, which is the one Bluemix uses for…

    I like to tell people that the key to being and/or sounding smart is to hang out with smart people.  And, one of the names that would quickly comes to mind if asked to recommend who to hang out with is John Seely Brown, aka JSB.  JSB, - who’s been a friend for over 25 years, - was chief scientist at Xerox and director of its Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) until June of 2000.  He is now the independent co-chairman of the Deloitte Center for the Edge and a visiting scholar at USC.  But, as noted in his personal website, his chief occupation is Chief of…
  • The Continuing Evolution of the On-Demand Economy

    21 Jul 2015 | 2:48 am
    The past few years have seen the rise of what’s been variously referred to as the on-demand, collaborative, sharing, or peer-to-peer economy.  Regardless of what we call it, this trend has captured the public’s imagination.  Articles on the subject now appear fairly frequently.  Some of the articles are focused on the empowerment nature of these technology-based economic models, enabling people to get what they need from each other.  Others are more concerned with on-demand’s impact on the very nature of work in the 21st century.  In an excellent 2013…

    Like many technological advances, the Internet of Things (IoT) has been long in coming.  Ubiquitous or Pervasive Computing dates back to the 1990s, when neither the necessary low-cost devices nor ubiquitous wireless networking were anywhere near ready.  But IoT has now reached an inflection point, with over 10 billion interconnected smart devices already out there, a number that’s expected to rapidly expand to 10s of billions by 2025 and to 100s of billions in the decades ahead. “The myriad possibilities that arise from the ability to monitor and control things in the physical…
  • “Flexible Security”: A Sensible Social Policy for our Digital Age

    IWB
    7 Jul 2015 | 3:46 am
    A few years ago I participated in an MIT roundtable that explored where future jobs will likely come from, given our increasingly powerful, inexpensive and smart technologies.  Despite the presence of top thinkers on the subject, the answer, in short, is that we truly don’t know.  We are transitioning to a digital economy whose vast implications are not well understood.  Perhaps, as has been the case in the past, we lack the imagination to properly perceive the future, and once more our technologies will give rise to new industries and jobs that we can barely anticipate…

  • Best Pracitces for Releasing Custodians from Hold in Atlas 6.0.3.x

    Nicholas Tsang
    3 Aug 2015 | 9:05 am
    In the Atlas eDiscovery Process Management application (we'll refer to as just Atlas) there are multiple ways to initiate the release for a custodian from a legal matter. You can start the release process from a hold notice directly by removing a recipient, or from a request by removing a custodian or by creating a new release notice and adding a custodian as a recipient. All the methods work in the end, but in practice it can get a little confusing depending on the method chosen. Releases are critical to get correct, as a custodian will not be removed from legal hold until that custodian…

In the mixed environment between OLTP and OLAP called OLTAP, DB2 shadow tables can be used to leverage BLU Acceleration without sacrificing OLTP performance. On the other hand, there are some restrictions such as data types. Though most data types are supported, some data types such as LOB and XML are not supported. For example, if your fact table contains invoice PDF data stored in a BLOB column, you cannot use BLU Acceleration as it is, which means you…
