I'm not a talented programmer, but am learning. Instead of unleashing cruddy code on the world I try to facilitate non opensource software users to try & love it. I focus strictly on code that has an OSI 'certified' license (thus it has been given the nod to meet the Open Source Definition) and is 'stable' (actually should work).

Yeah, yeah I know what you're thinking, "Why OSI certified?". Because newbies think anything installed on linux is open source. That's why. 8^)

I don't want to post this myself as an article 'cause I'd look like an ass, but anyway...

Tim Perdue has forked the previously open source code that runs SourceForge for his new project GForge.

Here's an interview with Tim I just completed this morning. It goes into what GForge is, why he built it, and some of the detail about what a miracle it is that sourceforge got launched at all.

Perhaps some wants to submit this as an article to advogato? GForge is fucking important!

The cat is out of the bag on my other secret (location, location, location)... we've been O'Reilly-ized. Check out the link & look for in the top left corner.

There's no official announcement, but since the link is there I guess it's public knowledge now. I love it when a plan comes together...

Well, I was waiting for ESR to announce it, but the OSI has finally launched a 'certification' mark. It was on /. today, so I guess its a free for all now.

I like to call it the "Am I open source or not?" logo.

That's what my 'dusting of your T-shirt making machine' comment was about previously in my diary here on advogato.

Colin Viebrock is the graphic designer & Rasmus collected them all back when the board started soliciting entries.

I wrote a quickie piece on my o'reilly blog about how too many people have two common misconceptions about what open source means & how many people seem to just make up their own definition of OS. ::LINK ::

I've moved my diary/blog to livejournal.

I'll post here when info is relevant to the advogato forum. I did order an ibook....
