In jMaki, each type of widget (tree, table, menu ...) has the same data model regardless of the toolkit which provides the widget. This is a value proposition in jMaki which we believe very useful. What this means is that you can use a table from Yahoo to display your data and if later you decide that the table from Dojo better suites your needs then you can switch to the Dojo widget but not...

Ajax is a
popular term for past few months but is still being written incorrectly as
"AJAX" (all capitals) instead of "Ajax" (camel
case). I started
using AJAX but then corrected myself and have been using Ajax since then. So
the correct term is Ajax, not AJAX.
Here is a list of several reasons (some mine and others from my colleague
Jesse James Garrett...

I've just read David's blog about the pleasure of staying in a low-tech contest. He contrasted Mexico with "no TV, no movies, no cell phones, no computers" versus the "getting connected" paradigm of San Francisco and the Web 2.0 Expo.
By chance, I've just had three days of vacation too. I escaped from the town and, as usual, I went to a little village in southern Tuscany. The targets were:...

I spent rest of my day at Sun pod showing various demos and talking to users.
The evening was fun with a 2-hour cruise trip.
The boat was shaking a lot so I could not get any good pictures of the New
York City skyline or Statue of Liberty. But it was nice spending time with other

In this post, I will write about the client/server bandwidth saving. In some countries, the cost of the Internet is based on the bandwidth consumption, you pay for the number of MB's you have used as traffic, so, if there is a website which contains pages with large size, you will consume the client bandwidth! Also the request...
