Last year SRG & Almond Board of California launched almondboard.com built entirely on the Microsoft Sharepoint platform. The site was recently recognized on topsharepoint.com for the month of January 2010. The site integrates both public facing web sites and secure private business portals. In whole 5 public facing web sites were created each with their own unique target audience. Consumers, Health Professionals, Food Professionals, Almond Growers, & Almond Handlers are all represented in the almond loving world. This is in addition to upcoming translations in to UK English, German, French, & Spanish. I'm still not a huge fan of Sharepoint, but it's good to know other people still like it.

I will admit, I was not the first to jump on the Chrome bandwagon. In fact, I still haven't really had any real reason to use it, until now. There is a rumor going around that soon Chrome will have built in Flash and PDF Reader support. No more downloading plug-ins, updating them periodically, etc. Woot!
According to downloadsquad.com this is a step Google is taking to ensure their sites like YouTube can offer smooth Full HD streaming videos. /me licks chops.
My one hope with this, if it is indeed true, is that Flash is updated regularly in the background with Chrome. I can't begin to tell you how many times over the years my computers have crashed due to Flash + FireFox not playing nice. Usually a simple uninstall of Flash and a re-install of the latest version fixes it, but it's an annoyance a user shouldn't have to deal with. Eyes are on you Google. Lead us to the future!

For years I've been a fan of SomaFM's various online radio streams. If you are a fan of any flavor of electronic music then you are probably already familiar with GrooveSalad, Secret Agent, or any of the other SomaFM stations. Now it's time to give back to the music you love so much. As with most things free, free doesn't really mean free. Somehow they have to pony up for the servers, storage, bandwidth, and DJ's it takes to run an online radio station. If you have a few extra bucks lying around, and dig on electronic music and online radio, I highly recommend pitching in. Long live online radio!
