Adobe Air for Art- Tweeters

A batch mate of mine working at Adobe Indias Noida development product management had tipped me to Adobe Air, but I thought it was typical Adobe hubris- but after several months Adobe Air clearly seems to be stealing a march over any other RIA ( Including Silverlight on which I have written and tagged before)

Modified Ohri Framework

 

Some time back, I had created a framework for data mining through on demand cloud computing. This is the next version- it is free to use for all, with only authorship credit back to me…………..
 
It tries to do away with fixed server ,desktop costs AND fixed software costs in softwares which are used for data mining ,stats and analytics and have huge huge per CPU count annual license fees

 

The modified Ohri Framework tries to mash the following

 

0) HTTPS rather than HTTP

1) Encryption and Compression Software for data transfer (like PGP)

2) Open source stats package like R in cloud computer (like Amazon EC2 or Rightscale  with hadoop)

3) GUI to make it easy to use (like Rattle GUI and PMML Package)

4) A Data Mining Open Source Package (like Rapid Miner or Splunk)

5) RIA Graphics (like Silverlight )

6) Secure Output to cloud computing devices (like Google Docs)

7) Billing or Priced at simple cost plus X % (where simple cost can be like 0.85 cent /per instance hour or more depending on usage and X should not be more than 15 %)

8) Open source sharing of all code to ensure community sandboxing

 

Intention is to remove fixed computing costs of servers and desktops to normal PC’s (Ubuntu Linux ) with (Firefox or IE Explorer ) access to secure data mining on demand .

On tap demand mining to anyone in the world without going for the big license purchases/renewals (software expenses) or big hardware purchases (which become obsolete in 2-3 years).
