Who’s Who: a Reg quest to find the BEST DOCTOR

Doctor icon

I like the idea of a Doctor icon for marking comments by time travelers (or travelers in other relative dimensions in space). Really a TARDIS icon would serve best. Probably trademarked though, isn't it?

On an unrelated note, I'd love to see a plain blue police box icon. You know, to indicate that the commenter is intending to call the bobbies.

Bespoke has its place

Software underpins virtually all business processes now, and much of it is not flexible enough to handle new business ideas (such as novel services) without modification.

Re: expert systems again oh jesus

What goes by the name of "expert systems" has evolved quite a bit in the past 10 years, learning from the mistakes of the Big Disappointment in the 80s and 90s. I'm confident that IBM is ready to make a fresh hell of this rather than just warmed up leftovers. I think it'll be fascinating to watch, since I won't have to deal with it.
