TOP TECH TRENDS


Some of the most rapidly developing tech trends right now are:



These fields are all closely related.

The reason behind the emergence of these areas is the continued progress of Moore's law - the doubling of computer power (and storage, and transmission speeds) every two or three years.  The power of computing has reached new thresholds that permit new applications. "Cloud" computing -- the use of remote, super-powerful computer hardware and software, together with rapid communication with the users over a network, is an important enabling technology.

At the moment, there are many job opportunities in these fields, mostly out west.  There is a serious need for more people to staff the development of these fields.  There also needs to be much better documentation and training of the advances.  The technology seems to be improving much faster than the documentation and training that will make it easy for more people and more companies to get up-to-speed, to use and continue to advance the technology.

TRADITION!


Alas, the Carnegie Deli, 7th & 55th, closed a moment ago.

I used to have an office around the corner and often lunched there.

The best corned beef & pastrami!  They cured it themselves in the olde days.
 The biggest! sandwiches. My mouth was never big enough, but I enjoyed the challenge. Even a few celebrities... even sitting at your table from time to time. Other deli standards. The standard for deli standards.

Cash only! 

A huge loss of one of NY's great traditions, eclipsing even the retiring of  Le Bernadin's caramel dessert.
