Fount on Megnut

"They're richer after four months of 'web' work than many web people who've been doing it since the beginning. They don't have personal sites. They don't want personal sites. They don't get personal sites. They don't get personal. Web people can tell you the first site they ever saw, they can tell you the moment they knew: This, This Is It, I Will Do This."

First web site that I ever saw, that converted me, Yahoo back when it was nothing but links.

Webware for Python

"Webware for Python is a definitive suite of Python software components for use in web development. Each component has a focused purpose and can often be used on it's own. At the same time, the components are designed to work together where appropriate. As a user of Webware, you can bite off as much or as little as you want to chew."

Where do these people get their (unoriginal) ideas?

"Any kind of interruption can cause these details to come crashing down. When you resume work, you can't remember any of the details (like local variable names you were using, or where you were up to in implementing that search algorithm) and you have to keep looking these things up, which slows you down a lot until you get back up to speed."

Integrating Diverse Data Sources with Gadfly 2

"This paper describes the primative methods underlying the implementation of SQL query evaluation in Gadfly 2, a database management system implemented in Python [Van Rossum]. The major design goals behind the architecture described here are to simplify the implementation and to permit flexible and efficient extensions to the gadfly engine. Using this architecture and its interfaces programmers can add functionality to the engine such as alternative disk based indexed table implementations, dynamic interfaces to remote data bases or or other data sources, and user defined computations."

NetFuture: Technology and Human Responsibility

"NetFuture is 'a largely undiscovered national treasure' (Peter J. Denning, New York Times, November 25, 1999). Here is what some others are saying about NetFuture.

NetFuture is a reader supported newsletter with postings every couple of weeks or so. It looks beyond the generally recognized 'risks' of computer use such as privacy violations, unequal access, censorship, and dangerous computer glitches. It seeks especially to address those deep levels at which we half-consciously shape technology and are shaped by it. What is half-conscious can, after all, be made fully conscious, and we can take responsibility for it."

Skin Cancer Well Suck is

Skin Cancer
Well Suck is claiming that skins suck and the skinability of Mozilla/Netscape 6 will ruin the world. But to use their own quote:

"The year 2000 is going to be 1983 all over again, with user interfaces a confusing mish-mash of whatever strikes a coder's fancy the day before the product ships."

which sounds like a good thing for me. The current "standard" in User Interface (UI) is far from perfect and the Mozilla XUL will allow for a new avenue in UI testing and experimentation. Sure like the desktop publishing revolution, wehre there were dozens of fonts on one page, and web revolution, where there there were dozens of colors on one page, the highly skinable Mozilla will bring out some great loads of crap to the world but it will also allow some truely usable UIs to develop and flourish.

"Popular revolt" for freeware? based

"Popular revolt" for freeware? based on conversations with Eben Moglen, FSF general counse and author of Anarchism Triumphant: Free Software and the Death of Copyright. Slashdot has a discussion. Maybe the most intresting comment


"...The majority of the people in Boston were AGAINST the boston tea party. Only a MINORITY of people wanted to seperate from Britain. Most people were HAPPY with their lives being merchants, trading, and going on with their day to day business.
It was a bunch of social miscreants that started the revolution.. a bunch of outcasts. Jefferson was a communist, Benjamin got hit by lightning and then tried to create a method of organizing his thoughts (see also: franklin series "day planners")... and George Washington was doing the same thing Clinton was this past year.
Nonetheless, we benefited from their work.. for a few years anyway. Then the corporations took over large sections of our government, subverted the law, and generally raised hell. And before anyone knew it.. ah, well.. they're too rich to stop now!
So.. shall we find a bunch of social outcasts again and start a revolution? That seems to be how these things work..." by Signal 11

Remember the highschool shootings in Paducha there were, in part, blamed on Doom? Well the Lawsuit Against id Software Dismissed check out the .plan. On a related note, Amazon customer reviews on Lt. Col. David Grossman's Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill. The whole "video games made me do it" reminds me of the PMRC rating and banning music from the 80's. Both ideas are so overly symplistic in answering the great question "what makes one do violent acts" as to be meaningless. Maybe some of those with the arguments should look at the whole complex picture.

The elusive as yet unaswered question in the FreeSoftware/OpenSource world, how are developers going to be paid? I for one would love ot get paid to write a Perl web based content management and publishing system. I am working on it as time permits but with 40+ hours/week at work, an an attempt at a social life there just is not that mutch time left. Now if I could only use that 40 hours twords the project things would be mutch cosher in fozzieland.
