Ken Sinclair, Editor

As editor I read lots of stuff that doesn't fit into an article, interview, column, news release, or new products. A lot of it is interesting to my readers so I thought I would try presenting it in a review.

Realize the Power of OPC-UA

The OPC-UA (Unified Architecture) standard offers a common data model and device communication platform for plant-to-enterprise data connectivity by leveraging the power of Microsoft .NET and Web services. A robust, secure and scalable expansion of the highly successful basic COM/DCOM-based OPC standard communication protocol, OPC-UA allows the interoperability of best-of-breed, real-time alarm management and historian systems.

In just the last 3 years, YouTube has become an international, household name. What started as a site for hobbyists and college students has turned into a global storehouse for every type of video imaginable. When the service was first introduced, it, like many Internet portals before it, offered clumsy navigation and faced other issues such as inconstant video formats. In addition, the early video posts were sparse and not very stimulating or engaging.

For anyone who has seen YouTube recently, it becomes quite apparent how much has changed in just a few years. It is safe to say that there is almost nothing you cannot find on YouTube.
