Link roundup after travelling too much
By webmink on Feb 11, 2009
- TripIt API Documentation - v1
More web end-points for cloud applications. This is the path to the future of cloud.
- A Twitter Decision
"Twitter spam. Really? Are you even paying attention? I’ll say it again, you choose who you follow ... complaining about it is like standing the middle of a freeway asking, “Why do these cars keep hitting me?”
- Free The Postcode!
Wouldn't it be great if the Post Office saw the writing on the wall and decided to liberate their database? If they don't, the outcome of this crowdsourced approach will be to marginalise them.
- French fighter planes grounded by computer virus
Another great reason to use OpenSolaris for this sort of application.
- My $50 House Episode (or how I came to hate Internet Caps)
I encountered this idiocy in the Novotel in Wellington, a hotel I would consequently not recommend to anyone with any kind of online life.
- The "FDR Failed" Myth
Some excellent graphs in this article for those who find themselves defending against Friedmanites.
Why 4096-bit keys might not matter as much as we think.
- English Tea Garden
The fact it's consumed in vast quantities is obvious, but I didn't realise tea was grown and harvested in England.
- LCA2009: The third wave of open source
Coverage of my keynote at LCA.
- Open source identity: Linux founder Linus Torvalds
"It is important projects like Firefox and OpenOffice.org are spreading the whole notion of open source wider. They work cross-platform and the project shouldn't be tied to the platform. People will realise the lack of tie-in means you can chose a platform and that is much healthier from the market standpoint than having to make a platform decision for an application."
- European Commission approves update of EU public licence
Interesting that the text does not mention "open source" or "free software".
