We’re At Google+




re: Google +

Yeah, lets all be unique TOGETHER.

What a bunch of sheeple.

Did they learn nothing since AOL?

Or how music has all turned to crap now that most radio stations are owned by a handful of companies.

Before this social media cluster frack, sites worked on their own branding. Now like mindless drones all their efforts are going towards building the social media's brand.

What a bunch of morons. Good luck living with someone elses decisions, this is just the tip of the iceberg until it's all just one big website.

Have fun differentiating your market share then.

We’re At Google+

We have a google page for PCLinuxOS. http://goo.gl/QdZnz

I see other distros there too.

Say Baaaaaaaaaaaaaa

google+ is cool

I can see why you would not use any social media being so anti-social. hahahaha

Google Plus is okay.

My LUG starting using Google plus after the one guy in the group with social skills moved away. Now every meeting has a "Hangout" element, and it's made our meetings a lot more lively, as people from all over join in. It became even more important when area flooding damaged the building where we have our meetings.

A friend died last week, and as I helped his sister make the arrangements, I discovered a funeral home that has a page on Facebook.

There are good and bad uses of social media, and i think we'll be sorting them out for a long time.

Firefox OS media-casting stick strikes Kickstarter gold

The first Firefox OS based media player has arrived on Kickstarter, in the form of a $25 open-spec HDMI stick that supports Chromecast-like content casting. The Matchstick, which has already zoomed past its Kickstarter campaign’s $100,000 funding goal, with 28 days still remaining, was teased back in June by Mozilla developer evangelist Christian Heilmann. The unnamed prototype was billed as an open source HDMI stick that runs Mozilla’s Linux-based Firefox OS and offers casting capabilities. Few details were revealed at the time except that the device used the same DIAL (DIscovery And Launch) media-casting protocol created by Netflix and popularized by Google’s Chromecast. Read more

Open source history, present day, and licensing

Looking at open source softwares particularly, this is a fact that is probably useful to you if you are thinking about business models, many people don't care about it anymore. We talk about FOSS, Free and Open Source Software, but if we really are strict there's a difference between free software and open source software. On the left, I have free software which most typically is GPL software. Software where the license insures freedom. It gives freedoms to you as a user, but it also requires that the freedoms are maintained. On the right-hand side, you have open source software which is open for all, but it also allows you to close it. So here we come back to the famous clause of the GPL license, the reciprocity requirement which says, "If I am open, you need to be open." So software that comes under the GPL license carries with it something that other people call a virus. I call it a blessing because I think it's great if all software becomes open. Read more
