Simpson on Google and Akamai
I’ve been a fan of Simpson Garfinkel since my days in the NeXT Users Group at MIT. Simpson was an active NeXT user and has since gone on to become a tech writer with a clear point of view, defending privacy as he engages the future. Today Simpson wrote about Google and Akamai as competitors, or at least fellow travelers on the the path to distributed terascale computing. What should Libraries be buying from Akamai and learning from Google?
