lawandlifesiliconvalley.blogspot: The year 2007 has been the most active year for legal developments in the history of free and open source (“FOSS”). In fact, you would have been hard pressed in past years to enumerate even five important legal developments. However 2007 permits the creation of a traditional “top ten” list. My list of the top ten FOSS legal developments in 2007 follows:

The article assures us that Mr. Whitehurst used to be a programmer and in fact runs four distributions of Linux at home (Fedora, OpenSUSE, Ubuntu, and … DSL? I’m curious to know what they are…).
wired blog: The hottest thing on YouTube this month isn't The Dark Knight trailer or that clip of a baby giving an evil eye. It's video of somebody downloading a copy of Ubuntu, a Linux-based operating system. How did something so completely boring top the list?

codeulate.com: Yesterday I stumbled onto a delightful tool from Google Labs: Code Search. Turns out Google is now crawling through source code.

opensourcelearning.info: One of the core principles of open source development is “freedom”.
