Wednesday, June 04 2014 @ 05:19 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceSyncthing is a cross-platform peer-to-peer file synchronization client/server application written in Go. Similar to BitTorrent Sync, the tool can be used to synchronize files between computers however, unlike BitTorrent Sync, Syncthing is open source

Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceBogus copyright claims on YouTube are getting more and more prevalent, but they only get exposure when they do damage to high-profile targets.

Tech giants, chastened by Heartbleed, finally agree to fund OpenSSL  View Printable Version 
Thursday, April 24 2014 @ 05:58 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceThe important role OpenSSL plays in securing the Internet has never been matched by the financial resources devoted to maintaining it.

The open source cryptographic software library secures hundreds of thousands of Web servers and many products sold by multi-billion-dollar companies, but it operates on a shoestring budget. OpenSSL Software Foundation President Steve Marquess wrote in a blog post last week that OpenSSL typically receives about $2,000 in donations a year and has just one employee who works full time on the open source code.

Why the World Needs OpenStreetMap  View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 05 2014 @ 10:46 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceEvery time I tell someone about OpenStreetMap, they inevitably ask Why not use Google Maps?. From a practical standpoint, its a reasonable question, but ultimately this is not just a matter of practicality, but of what kind of society we want to live in. I discussed this topic in a 2008 talk on OpenStreetMap I gave at the first MappingDC meeting. Here are many of same concepts, but expanded.

Linux Foundation Chief: 'You Are an Idiot' If You Don't Give Back to Open Source  View Printable Version 
Saturday, May 25 2013 @ 09:16 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceLinux is the granddaddy of all open source projects, the blueprint for the decentralized development processes. And some of those who use the Linux code, free for the taking, don't give back in equal measure. Still, the time for cajoling those users -- even commercial projects like Ubuntu leader Canonical -- into participating is over, says Jim Zemlin, executive director of the nonprofit Linux Foundation.

Open source equals software freedom, not free software  View Printable Version 
Monday, October 08 2012 @ 07:32 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceVivek Ranadive, CEO of Tibco, is one of the industry's big thinkers, complete with a profile in Esquire. So why would a smart guy like him dismiss open source as "fool's gold"? And why do some software vendors believe they can justify "FRAND terms" on software standards and permit patented capabilities to be inserted into software standards?
