 Michele Leroux Bustamante posted a really great summary of how to go about creating a web service front end coupled to a multi-tier backend.  Check out the diagram at the end.  It makes it very clear.  I particularly like the use of the facade assembly on the web layer to talk to the business tier.  Very nicely done.

I know things have been a bit quiet here lately.  Suffice it to say it’s been a weird winter so far.  I’m hoping to get some more technical content soon, but in the mean time…

I just got back from vacation in Phoenix, where it rained almost the entire time we were there, while here at home in (usually not so) sunny Portland it’s been sunny and in the 50’s and 60’s.  Good thing that whole global climate change is just a myth propagated by eco-freaks.  :-)

Bruce Sterling wrote a great review of the Voltaic Solar Backpack.  Pretty neat gizmo.  It’s a backpack with solar panels on the back that charge an internal battery, that in turn can be used to charge your cell phone/iPod/camera, etc.  I don’t know how well it would work here in the land where the sun is dim, but it’s a cool idea.  Energy self-sufficiency for one’s gizmos is a noble goal.
