  • Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit - Austin, Texas - April 8th to 10th, 2008 -

    Unlike a lot of the events that I discuss in my Blog, the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is a "by invitation only" event with a twist. Normally for "invitation only events", the potential attendee sits by the phone with their prom clothes on, waiting for the call that may or may not come. more>>

  • Waterboarding -

    During World War II, the US recognized waterboarding as a form of torture, and said so clearly.

  • The betrayal budget bill -

    The betrayal budget bill shows how Congress will try to squeeze through fast track for the TPP.

  • HK trying to take protester from parents -

    Hong Kong is trying to take a 14-year-old protester away from his parents on the grounds that they "neglected" him by not stopping him from protesting.

    The willingness to do something that everyone will regard as deceptive and cruel is a stage frequently seen on a government's path to complete tyranny. It is a way of declaring open war on human rights. Putin passed through this stage a few years ago, and Erdogan is going there now.

  • Descobertos e (re)misturados - Este artigo foi escrito por Fabianne Balvedi originalmente para a edição n.45 da Revista ABCDesign, codinome “Origens” ( ) Era junho de 2004, e eu estava em uma das apresentações mais badaladas do FISL V – Quinto Fórum Internacional Software Livre.

  • CANDIDATO dos TUCANOS DEFENDEU TRABALHO INFANTIL. JUSTIÇA COMPROVA - Jonas Donizete, desesperado, despreparado, orientado pelos mesmos marketeiros de Alckmin e Serra, tentou nos programas de TV dizer que nunca tinha apresentado nenhum projeto favorável ao trabalho infantil.

  • JONAS DONIZETE, DO PSB, DEFENDE TRABALHO INFANTIL - Jonas Donizete, candidato de Alckmin e dos tucanos a Prefeitura de Campinas, apoiado por Luiza Erundina, apresentou o vergonhoso projeto que defende trabalho de crianças a partir de 7 anos de idade.

  • FSF Blogs: New article by RMS, "What does it mean for a computer to be loyal?" -

    We say that running free software on your computer means that its operation is under your control. Implicitly this presupposes that your computer will do what your programs tell it to do, and no more. In other words, that your computer will be loyal to you.

    In 1990 we took that for granted; nowadays, many computers are designed to be disloyal to their users. It has become necessary to spell out what it means for your computer to be a loyal platform that obeys your decisions, which you express by telling it to run certain programs.

    Richard Stallman's latest article offers a "tentative definition" of a computer that is "loyal to you," the user.
