PostHeaderIcon WordPress is The Best CMS

WordPress is the best CMS for most of the website owners. According to W3Techs SEO Market share statistics ( http://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/content_management/all )
The market share of WordPress (as of 3/17/2013 ) is 54.5% vs Joomla 8.5% vs Drupal 7.2% vs Blogger 3.8%.

PostHeaderIcon Protect Your Privacy on Facebook:Don’t show your birthday.

In my strong personal opinion, a website should never ask for your accurate date of birth. (They should only ask you to confirm that you are above 13 or 21 )

PostHeaderIcon Basic ASP

Basic Active Server Pages(ASP) can be very handy when you use Windows IIS server.  I start Web programming with ASP and Access database (then transferred to MS SQL server for better performance.

To learn to build a website with ASP .NET, you should have your own ASP .NET hosting account.

Here’s some good pages for you to learn basic ASP

The VBscript language used for ASP  is easy to learn so it is very popular in China to build simple business websites. In 1999, we even built a very popular church search engine for Church2000.org with ASP.

PHP vs ASP

After PHP came out, it became very popular quickly and now I’d rather focus on PHP as LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL and PHP) platform is the most popular and WordPress runs best on LAMP. The ASP user base has been shrinking as PHP user groups have been growing.

PostHeaderIcon Kaibo2.0

Kaibo2.0 means it’s a Kaibo graded like from Web to Web2.0!
We have set up a Youtube channel Kaibo2.0 Youtube Shows http://youtube.com/kaibo20.

If you follow us at this site or the Kaibo2.0 Youtube Shows, you can benefit a lot from Kaibo2.0 because

Kaibo2.0 is not just Kaibo but a brand new Kaibo with Web2.0, Tech2.0, Business2.0 concepts of the 21st Century and experience dated from the last century. 凯波2.0 是崭新的凯波。他拥有Web2.0,技术2.0,商业2.0等21世纪全新的概念,同时又有从上个世纪延伸下来的丰富经验。

Kaibo2.0 is about Web technology while it is also about Chinese language and culture and American English, Australian English, and British English. This is because Kaibo, I mean Kaibo2.0, is from China and grew up in the United States and graduated from Zhongda ( http://nc.zhongda.org Sun Yat-Sen University) with a B.A. degree in English and graduated from South-Eastern Nova University ( http://nova.edu ) with an International MBA (they call it MIBA) and lots of experience in Unix and Internet from its famous Unix system and Internet connection (at that time, in early 1990’s, they were pretty advanced.)

Actually, Kaibo was upgraded to Kaibo2.0 in Miami in 1992 (I was reborn spiritually and saved then). Back in 1996, if you search the Web for Kaibo, I was the one and only Kaibo. This situation even last to the successful years of Yahoo. Now, if you search for Kaibo2 or Kaibo2.0 on Google or Bing, you will still get us. Thank you, Google and Bing.

From year 2012, Kaibo2.0, 凱波2.0, 凯波2.0 became a trade mark of Kaibo2.com for Web Technology, Chinese language and culture and entertainment. All rights reserved.
