New Year of 2015 meant what, to you ?

Posted 1 Jan 2015 at 01:06 UTC (updated 1 Jan 2015 at 09:10 UTC) by badvogato

UTC New Year 2015 is here. My thanks be with Steven Rainwater and Raph and all gathered here.

I wish to bring to y'all attention of what I came across during my Christmas visit 2014 at family gathering, to mark the happy occasion of celebration of Shakespear's life ( 26 April 1564 (baptised) – 23 April 1616 ). His art of his time had a far greater impact on modern thoughts, than I have realized, till this day, thanks to Prof. Lars Engle and other countless innovative social programmers' most selfless and sacrificial endeavour paid by sunny hours of their teaching and dark hours of their writing, thinking what really matters to teach about our human life and human society as we, not knew and experienced but imagined since our long forgotten childhood days with unspeakable words, thoughts and voices towards all possibilities in our unknown destiny and all its senseless yet comprehensible dream.

Finishing Off the Open Content / Web 2.0 Revolution

Posted 31 Aug 2014 at 12:03 UTC by shlomif

An open letter (with its sources and other formats) from the hacker king of the open content / Web 2.0 revolution (~2000-2014) to all hackers / actions heroes and geeks / amateurs from the film creators world, the software development world and elsewhere, about officially concluding that revolution and starting the next one. In part it should be done by filming films, either indie
or more professional, of the “Summerschool at the NSA” (#SummerNSA) screenplay which proved to be the magnus opus of the hacker king of that revolution, and passing the baton to the new hacker queen.

Summerschool at the NSA - ~1 Year Later - Reloaded

Posted 30 May 2014 at 12:34 UTC (updated 30 May 2014 at 12:38 UTC) by shlomif

The “Summerschool at the NSA” meme dates back to a correspondence between my friend and I back in the haydays of 1997-1998 (with Web 1.0, before the burst of the tech bubble) where I said that Even the NSA doesn’t have enough programmers. But it is not likely that they will have more, and that’s because Summerschool at the NSA may might as well be the name of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s next movie. and he replied that And as opposed to I Know What You Did Last Summer, it is going to be scary.. It was based on a hunch of what I knew about the NSA from fellow Internet people and from watching the highly recommended film Sneakers.

MoodleRooms, the Cloud - Services and the GPL

Posted 17 May 2014 at 05:12 UTC by aicra

When services are not conveying but users interact the GPL does not seem to come into play. While companies like Moodlerooms allege they donate a lot of funding to Moodle, we are unable to use the source code from this deriv because it is "Cloud" based and no copies are distributed.
