I read a lot of blogs. I subscribe to a lot more blogs than I have time to read. Sound familiar? If you're like me, you don't have time to read everything you want (if you do, please tell me your secret). In an effort to reduce the chaos of life, I do two weekly article roundups: one for technical things and one for small business things.
Here's a roundup of the most interesting tech articles I found this week. Enjoy!
WordPress 3.3 Proposed Scope – See what is scheduled for the next version of WordPress. Some of it is wishlist, but there are a few things that are slated as top priority, such as updates to the media uploader, that I’m excited for. They’re planning to drop support for IE7, too, but not in version 3.3. We’ll have to wait for 3.4 for that.
Most IT pros say their websites, networks will support IPv6 by 2013 – Well, this is huge and pleasantly surprising news. I guess that whole “we’ve run out of IPv4 addresses” finally sunk in! Some key figures from the report:
- 70% of IT departments plan to upgrade their websites to support IPv6 within the next 24 months
- 65% say they will have IPv6 running on their internal networks by then (24 months)
- more than 90% said IPv6 is “fundamentally important to the Internet”
Do you have IPv6 yet? Do you have plans for IPv6? (No idea what I’m talking about? Contact me.)
Girls Go Geek… Again! – As a fellow Geek Girl, I found this article fascinating! Did you know 42% of the software developers and 34% of the systems analysts in America were women in 1987? The article includes a Q&A with an incoming senior at Johns Hopkins University about her history and experience with computer science.
A simple introduction to web accessibility – A quick primer on web accessibility, covering visual, hearing, motor, cognitive disabilities.
Comic Sans Criminal – Another fun website to close the roundups this week. Are you a Comic Sans Criminal? A little history, a little fun, a little true.
If you enjoy these Roundups please share with your friends!
Have a great weekend!
