I've been doing a lot of research in this area lately. I came across this today and it just reiterates the fact that mobile computing along with cloud computing is going to drastically shape how we view IT and interact with one another in the next 5 years not to mention the convergence of devices that could shift from smartphones and tablets to being more of something you wear rather then put in your pocket or briefcase, projects like Google's Project Glass come to mind. Projects like that are game changers in my mind, its an exciting time to be living in the information age. The next revolution may even shift from information to technology and converge into BioTech.

Hola, been awhile since I posted on my blog. Been a bit busy ;)
At any rate, got a quick question on the advantages of Ruby On Rails... vs. say using Coldfusion? Any takers on enlightening on why I would move over to RoR if I already know and use CF?

A small team in my Company are trying to get AIR approved as a Company standard for Rich Desktop Applications. We already have Flex 2 & 3 approved, but would like to go one step further and start developing AIR apps for internal uses. One thing we are needing is a list of Best Practices for Deployment and Security. Was curious if anyone could share some information on best practices you have came across during your experiences?
Just post them here so everyone can see them and leverage it!
Thanks in advance!

I ran into a very odd issue this week with Coldfusion 7. I have an application that I have had up and running for a couple years and I made some database changes, CFquery (DAO) changes. Since I use Illudium-PU 37 Generator for most of my Bean, DAO, Gateway, & services I automatically get the benefit of being reminded about cfqueryparam (Thanks Brian). Unfortunately this time around I didnt regen the files, I simply went in and made a couple modifications since I only added like two columns to the table.
Well all went well for like a week, than all of a sudden I started getting this crazy error. I kept getting a message saying "Invalid Parameter Binding(s)" and it wasnt even the new columns I just added, it was something else entirely.
I did some digging in my cfdump of the cfcatch error message, I discovered that for some odd reason Coldfusion was converting a bit into a integer even though both my bean, ActionScript Value Object and the cfqueryparam were all set to a boolean value / cf_sql_bit. So when flex sent over the data to CF all was well, but when it sent the data to the DAO.cfc to do a save/update into the database the cfqueryparam was sometimes doing it right and sometimes doing it wrong, it was really -- really hard to duplicate the error message, but here is what it the message was returning in the cfcatch...
