  • 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>>

  • Urgent: Boycott Koch Industries products -

    Everyone: boycott Koch Industries products.

  • Obamacare web site visitor data -

    The Obamacare web site gives data to many companies about its visitors; these companies can integrate that data with other personal data to increase their knowledge of the person.

    They say that the companies are prohibited from using the data for "business purposes", but I expect they have already found other ways to use the data while pretending it is not "for business purposes".

    I wonder if the site requires running nonfree Javascript code.

    Sure, the analysis is useful — but government relationship to the public should not be designed in a narrowminded way that considers only the specific project. This web site should never give any data about people to any company.

  • Fracking causes earthquakes -

    Fracking causes medium-size earthquakes in several US states.

    This is an additional reason to ban them, beyond pollution of water supplies, methane leaks, and the contribution to global heating.

  • 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. Apesar de trabalhar com programas de código aberto desde 2001, fazia muito pouco [...]
  • 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. Como não conseguiu impedir o acesso ao projeto de lei 9236/1997, de sua autoria, no site Câmara de Vereadores, solicitou à Jutiça Eleitoral o bloqueio das denuncias, [...]
  • 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. O pior é que ele mente na TV e diz que nunca apresentou o projeto. Ele aposta na ignorância. Então, desafio ele e [...]

  • bison @ Savannah: bison-3.0.4 released [stable] -

    Bison 3.0.4 is a long overdue bug fix release.

    Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that converts an annotated
    context-free grammar into a deterministic LR or generalized LR (GLR)
    parser employing LALR(1) parser tables. Bison can also generate
    IELR(1) or canonical LR(1) parser tables. Once you are proficient with
    Bison, you can use it to develop a wide range of language parsers,
    from those used in simple desk calculators to complex programming

    Bison is upward compatible with Yacc: all properly-written Yacc
    grammars ought to work with Bison with no change. Anyone familiar with
    Yacc should be able to use Bison with little trouble. You need to be
    fluent in C or C++ programming in order to use Bison. Java is also

    Debian Project News

  • Online Source Editing - Inspired by GitHub's online code editing and Stefano Zacchiroli's presentation at Debconf14, Raphael Geissert has announced an integrated online editor for debsources. The Chromium extension allows users to edit debsources without having to download source packages and without leaving their browser.
  • Debian Code Search - With the shutdown of Google Code Search in January 2012, Open Source (FLOSS) software developers lost a valuable coding tool. Michael Stapelberg developed Debian Code Search, and launched it in November 2012. Debian Code Search provides Debian and FLOSS developers with a source-code search engine for over 129 GiB of FLOSS software currently available in Debian, searchable using regular expressions.
  • The newsletter for the Debian community - Recently a new version of Debian Code Search has been launched. Michael Stapelberg blogged highlighting several improvements, including grouping search results by Debian source package. The top ten search results are available almost immediately while the query continues, as indicated with a new progress bar. Packages that are uploaded to Debian become searchable in Debian Code Search in a couple of minutes or within the hour, instead of taking up to a week. Users will find that the new Debian Code Search site has a modern user interface providing cleaner search results achieved through CSS animations.
