I yesterday published my first post in our corporate blog. It was an attempt to compare Java and PHP, using some historic backgrounds and comparing the evolution.

Even if it came out close in favour of Java, its really interesting to see that its pretty hard to compare those langages, because the language actually doesnt matter that much nowadays. I think we are about to reach the next level of programming language. Its the framework abstraction level. You no longer choose cobol for accounting and c++ for games, but you can choose between a financial and a gaming framework in any language.

Please be gentle with that blog post. Its not meant as criticism on either Java or PHP and sure its far from perfect. Thats basically the point of blogging. you can write about things you might have thought through, but which isnt really on a solid foundation :-)
