OK, this is a bit of a stretch … but the connection between IBM i and IBM Watson just got a tiny (very tiny) bit smaller.
Many people (especially those in the IBM i community) know that Watson runs on the Power 7 CPU (Power 750 to be exact) … the same chip that IBM i runs on.
Well, it turns out that the blog that IBM is discussing Watson on, ‘A Smarter Planet’, is running the “WP Tags to Technorati” plug-in for WordPress that I wrote.
OK, so it’s a BIG stretch … let me live my illusions 🙂
I am sure someone on the team is an iSeries guy and thought of you… 🙂
Pretty cool indeed but what’s a Technorati tag? There was a link to their page but what does the plugin do for your WP install?
Technorati is a a service that helps people find related content on blog posts based on tags.
My plug-in takes wordpress tags and creates links to the Technorati section for that tag.
If you look towards the bottom of the post, you’ll see the “Technorati tags” section … that’s what my plug-in adds.
