Mix06: Atlas

The hardcore Atlas demo was pretty cool. They're releasing a "go live" license for it today. Biggest surprise was that the underlying libraries can actually be used with any platform, which is pretty cool. And it's free.

So you can use Atlas essentially in three ways. There's the total server control method, the hybrid method where you can use the script libraries, and even more extreme, the xml-script declarative thing. While I see the power in the third approach, having been exposed to a lot of framework-based apps, I would also speculate that it won't be widely used.

I'm about to go into a session where the MySpace guys are gonna talk about how their platform as a whole works. 150 servers. Ouch!

I use MySpace, but it's probably one of the worst websites out there. It's cluttered even with the basic layout, and it crashes my browser about 1 in 10 times I go to the site.

Why do I still use it then? It's the only way I could stay in contact with a lot of my friends. Too many people to call, but reading a bulletin or sending a quick message cuz you saw their picture and thought of them....

I think you'll like the new profile manager when they get it out (they didn't give a timeline).

Atlas is was the main reason I wanted to goto Mix06. Looks like they are finally at a point where it is usable.
