The companion to this blog, our Smarter Planet site on Tumblr, is what feeds the "Related Discussions Across the Internet" links in the left hand navigation.

As Tumblr aptly describes its platform, if a blog is more like a journal or longer-form discussion format, a "tumblelog" is more like a scrapbook. Posts are brief, multimedia and in our case, cover the waterfront of news, developments, sites, insights and examples of how a smarter planet is emerging. Our goal is to give people a broad feel for what smarter planet means, and how widely it is taking shape.

And now we've i
mplemented a version of the site optimized for mobile devices.  So be sure to add  http://smarterplanet.tumblr.com/mobile to your iPhone, Blackberry or other device bookmarks.

Of course, this mobile iteration isn't just a convenience for the rapidly growing ranks of mobile internet users. The explosion of web-enabled smartphones and other handheld devices loaded with sensors such as cameras, microphones and GPS chips is one of the most salient signs of the "internet of things" and "ubiquitous computing" that is central to what Smarter Planet is all about.

Whether you have found “the” wedding dress at a store or have been given your mother’s dress or have decided to make one yourself, you will probably need to make some alterations. Very few people are lucky enough to stumble on a dress that fits perfectly.

To tailor your wedding dress, keep in mind the potential “snags” you might hit along the way. Give yourself and your chosen seamstress ample time to transform the dress with minimal stress for both of you.

Find a skilled seamstress to tailor your wedding dress. Ask around and get recommendations from friends, family, your bridal shop or even local high-end fabric stores. Always request to see samples of a seamstress’s work. Above all, look for someone who knows how to alter, fit and tailor bridal attire. It is risky to place your dress in the hands of a nonspecialized independent seamstress or your local dry cleaner, for instance. And even though it might be more expensive, have your dress tailored in-house at the shop where you purchased it if you have any doubts or need extensive alterations.

Establish a timeline. A good window for gown fittings and tailoring is 2 to 3 months between first and last appointments. You may have 2 (minimum) to 4 or more fittings, particularly for custom-designed dresses. Give the seamstress a definite deadline but also make sure to leave at least 4 weeks until the wedding date to allow for last-minute adjustments.

Go in for fittings. Bring your key accessories or at least similar items, so that you can see how the gown will look with everything else. Bring only a few trusted relatives and friends to offer their opinions. For the final fitting, bring your maid of honor so that she can learn how to bustle your train (if you have one) for the reception.Know what to expect. Tailoring can be as simple as letting out a sleeve or as complex as a complete redesign. Skilled seamstresses can often revitalize and/or modernize a dress. Note that depending on the fabric and style of the dress, the process can be difficult and laborious, so you make provisions for this in terms of time and expense.http://www.voguedress.co.uk/

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

If IBM truly wants to help build a greener planet then stop building thousands upon thousands of servers and put those thousands of servers on mainframes. Oh wait, my bad, as long as you can make billions of dollars then green is not an issue right!!!!!!!!!!!!
