NASA’s code has now gone open source – cue homebrew rocket ships. Open source development is a great thing. With NASA opening a new open source software-dedicated Web site, it allows street coders to access and improve the source code that NASA is working on. This can lead to new discoveries that the professional engineers at NASA could possibly never …
Ionut Alex found evidence in the source code for the newest version of Gmail that hints at features we may be receiving soon.
He found code for Jabber transports, which would allow contacting people from other instant messaging networks over Google Talk/Chat’s Jabber connection, which makes sense given the fact that Gmail’s new contact manager asks for Yahoo, MSN and AIM usernames now.
It’s been a while since I’ve watched Jeopardy, but it seems like $25,000 was about as much as a person was likely to win in a single show. And now Shirley Seaman has won that amount after participating in “the first-ever Jeopardy! Google Daily Challenge.”
When Google-owned Blogger sends you a Digital Millennium Copyright Act take-down notice, at least they’re polite about it and liberally use the word "alleged." But they only ask once, as the person who posted Facebook’s source code on his Blogspot blog learned.
I guarantee that if you submit a DMCA request to Google–the one you use to request copyrighted material is removed–you won’t get the same rapid response Facebook just got.
There have always been pro-union people and anti-union people, and you can usually guess who’s what depending on their individual caste. In this case, though it carries with it the same arguments, it will have to be decided first if an industry has emerged from nebulous existence and into a viable, thriving industry.
Be warned, if you decided to sell your company to Google, don’t expect to actually enjoy working for the world’s largest search engine. While the money would be nice, judging by the number of resignations Google gets from its acquired companies, the money may be all you get out of the deal.
If you’re a long time reader of Marketing Pilgrim, you’ll know my unease with anyone trying to define blogging; who should and shouldn’t blog; and, especially, talk of a “bloggers code of conduct.” So, you can imagine that my Monday morning is not off to a good start, when sipping my coffee I see Tim O’Reilly’s attempt to draft a code of conduct for bloggers.
Tim O’Reilly just posted the draft of a Blogger’s Code of Conduct that he’s hoping we all adopt. I instantly asked the mob hanging out on Twitter what they thought. Brett Nordquist had this funny thought:
There are many strategies one can employ in order to improve a site’s search ranking. Everything from title tags to link buying has been suggested at one time or another when it comes to this elusive beast we like to call search engine optimization. The question remains, however, is there anything we’re missing as far as coding goes?
Google has digital initiatives rumored for a couple of areas. In-game advertising delivered through a potential acquisition of Adscape Media may place Google ads in online games, while the search advertising company’s initiative to bring e-books to the masses could find allies among the biggest global publishers.
Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, and Vodafone quietly disclosed they were working together with human rights organizations, investors and legal experts to develop a code of conduct for technology companies to help protect online free speech and privacy. The move is likely in response to proposed legislation that would be much more restrictive.
Niall Kennedy wrote on his blog that The Yahoo Developer Network provided a short preview of the soon to be released del.icio.us webbadge.
People are busy. Email piles up. Probably why some of the prominent bloggers I solicited for a response to a British proposal that somebody regulate these free-wheeling, free-speaking modern yarn-weavers were too late for an earlier article. Shows what a swell, free market of ideas guy I am – and how nicely updatable Internet content is. Here’s a follow-up with those responses from people you know.
Based on the number of hits this blog is getting with the search term “Geronimo vs. WAS CE”, it appears that there is some confusion about the similarities and differences between Apache Geronimo and IBM WebSphere Application Server Community Edition (WAS CE).
It can be debated that bloggers already have their own unwritten laws, a code of conduct to which the prominent bloggers are to adhere. In Britain, the same governmental bodies that regulate the press, want to extend that code of practice to bloggers due to lack of professional standards. Some well-known bloggers have answered that proposal with a resounding “poppycock!”
I’m sure someone like Robert Scoble would be all for the UK’s Press Complaints Commission’s suggestion that bloggers should hold themselves to a voluntary code of conduct, but I say “hell no!”
Google stepping into the playground of other technology areas has caused trembling for companies as powerful as Microsoft. Koders.com views Google’s entry into code search as a cue for a smile, a roll of quarters in the fist, and a “bring it on” gesture straight out of The Rock’s playbook.
With a title like “Why Google and Yahoo! can’t be better open source citizens” one might think that our companies were squeezing as much as possible out of the open source world and giving little back.
Developers thriving in the open source community have been hounding Sun Microsystems for a long time to open up the code to its widely-used Web language, Java. A surprise conference announcement last week reveals that day is coming, even if not as soon as initially thought.
MSN Video is apparently on the A-list this year at the Cannes Film Festival. They were quite quick to point out they were the “only media outlet allowed inside the ‘Da Vinci Code’ party,” and that the losers at Yahoo!, E!, and anybody else with an annoying exclamation point in their name was not there.
