Personalize Your Google Home Page!

I'm sure lot's of folks have already done this by now. It's not unique but I guess that's what makes it so nice. Anyone , just about anyone can personalize the google home page.

All you need to do is to type in http://www.google.com/ig and if you save it as your homepage then you can further personalize it.

check this out.



And you can further personalize it by adding more content on the left.


And as you can see just type in the subject of your interest, for instance I have typed in JDeveloper(my favorite Java IDE from Oracle) when it comes to playing with JSF(Java Server Faces) development. And as you can see you can get your feeds and add the best suitable to you.



Good thing is that Google Personalization saves me from clicking all over the place to follow news, favorite rss feeds,what's hot and what's not. So you just happens to collect everything at one place. You can keep changing your taste and all at one place.

What I still want out of this personalization is:
o Movies
o Weather(I see that MSN gives me a good weather on Assen while a cool example of Boston on google really doesn't help;0)
o Directions

They're still US specific.But I'm anxious.:D

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
