Smalltalk-80: The Interactive Programming Environment Date: December 1983 Smalltalk-80: The Interactive Programming Environment

Smalltalk is an object-oriented, dynamically typed, reflective programming language. Smalltalk was created as the language to underpin the "new world" of computing exemplified by "human–computer symbiosis."[1] It was designed and created in part for educational use, more so for constructionist learning, at Xerox PARC by Alan Kay, Dan Ingalls, Adele Goldberg, Ted Kaehler, Scott Wallace, and others during the 1970s, influenced by Lisp, Logo, Sketchpad and Simula.

The language was first generally released as Smalltalk-80 and has been widely used since. Smalltalk-like languages are in continuing active development, and have gathered loyal communities of users around them. ANSI Smalltalk was ratified in 1998 and represents the standard version of Smalltalk.

Amazon Review
This is by far one of the best books I have found on AIX and its administration. Siegert takes you from an overview to minute detail in just a few words and then points out the potholes in the road. GREAT BOOK!! Glad I found it. I am no novice to AIX having been weaned on the RTPC. This book has taught me much I thought I knew already about AIX. Thanks to Andreas Siegert for writing this book.

Some notes on Utility Computing by Ivan I. Ivanov:

Utility Computing is not a new concept. It involves organizing and providing a wide range of computing-related services as public utilities. Much like water, gas, electricity and telecommunications, the concept of computing as public utility was announced in 1955. Utility Computing remained a concept for near 50 years. Now some models and forms of Utility Computing are emerging such as storage and server virtualization, grid computing, and automated provisioning. Recent trends in Utility Computing as a complex technology involve business procedures that could profoundly transform the nature of companies’ IT services, organizational IT strategies and technology infrastructure, and business models. In the ultimate Utility Computing models, organizations will be able to acquire as much IT services as they need, whenever and wherever they need them. Based on networked businesses and new secure online applications, Utility Computing would facilitate “agility-integration” of IT resources and services within and between virtual companies. With the application of Utility Computing there could be concealment of the complexity of IT, reduction of operational expenses, and converting of IT costs to variable ‘on-demand’ services. How far should technology, business and society go to adopt Utility Computing forms, modes and models?
