Turns out that….3 days from today, all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls…AND YES, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS

Funny, though I am not sure I totally agree with this recent (and bogus) AJAX discussion as I have been using the concepts at my new employer, KnowNow and in the Gmail email client. The KnowNow RSS reader, publishing tool, and admin tools all use the AJAX\REST format in UI implementation as does Gmail. AJAX is used to create a more Web 2.0 (interactive Web) experience using “Asynchronous JavaScript and XML” enabling browser updates with out refreshes. I am sure we can all see the value inherent in that paradigm. The funny thing is that KnowNow has had the capability before Gmail (and AJAX for that matter) ever existed…

I can get the money to make it happen – I am simply not smart enough to devise the “rule the blogosphere” plan. Someone will and there will be many dollars spent and many more made:
