I read about Open Source License and GNU Public License on both of Advogato and Slashdot. I'm not sure what is good license for me and ordinary people.

A kind of communism began on the computer network? If GNU governs, my salary will go high 'cause GNU licensed softwares are usually geniuses' work but it's hard to handle if you are not the writer or one of contributors. I think if GNU license is dominant, indivisuals will get the more money, but the company will not.


I've come to know that Instant Message Protocol (http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/impp-charter.html) was finalized. As a NLP software developer, I have a new idea to integrate intelligent e-mail filtering to procmail (www.procmail.org) and notify to end-users via Instant Messengers.

As a component of this news service, we need a natural language understand module. At first mail filter tranditional e-mail filter or term matching will do for it, but ideally natural language understanding is the key player.

I have downloaded procmail from procmail.org. At first we need a method to represent, IR's term matching will work right now.

Instant Message Protocol will be implemented on desktops, including M$ products and Open Source systems, and mobile appliance. E-Mail filtering and alert system is essential.

I am a newbie here. But I found advogato is so good place to learn about OSS and to contribute. I have not opened my own software. But I hope sometimes later, such as wgrep which quotes certain part of table in web pages and email to someone. I made a crontab entry to invoke this program, I get weather news at midnight everyday.
