Foxpro Blog

Craig Berntson of Salt Lake City maintains a FoxPro blog. I used to love dBase II back in the early to mid-eighties. I think I created dozens of dBase systems and then even used FoxPro for awhile. I gave it up for MS Access in the early nineties and haven't used any of them much since I became a heavy user of the internet. The FoxBlog does talk about a little more than just FoxPro however.

UWIN Un-named

I missed this article about UWIN in last week's Salt Lake Tribune (it doesn't mention UWIN, but that is what it is about).

Hi Tech Champions Wanted

Lisa Carricaburu writes in the Salt Lake Tribune that Utah is slipping off the map of tech hubs. No longer is Utah home to the corporate headquarters of leading tech companies like Novell, WordPerfect, and Iomega. There are more subtle changes. Regardless, it is critical that the winner of this years gubernatorial campaign place high tech growth as a key to an overall economic development strategy. The Legislature could play a role, but seems more interested in playing to interests like Qwest as evidenced by its attack on UTOPIA.
