HTML5 & Ogg Theora

http://my.opera.com

This whole html tag ordeal is getting out of hand. If we look at the image tag it supports jpeg, png, gif and probably more although I've not tried any others.

The Kindness of strangers can defeat Proprietary Cloud Computing. Free Software Solutions

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

Fashion is fickle. One day thin clients and clusters are the fashion de jour, the next it's Web 2.0, Virtualisation or distributed computing and Grids.

DRM and the Nintendo DSi

http://www.epsilon.hlgamers.com

"It’s rare that people are familiar with both free software and gaming, so I feel I ought to offer my opinion here. Everyone knows that Nintendo has been shouting about its “new” handheld console. With not one but two shiny new cameras, larger screens and hopefully better batteries than the DS Lite, what’s not to like about the DSi? ..."

http://www.freedom-to-tinker.com

Reading Prof. Felten's post on "DRM in Retreat" earlier this year might have led one to believe that DRM was getting ready to take a long walk off a short pier wearing concrete shoes.
