End of line Internet Explorer

http://www.isolani.co.uk

"...Microsoft's proposal is for web developers to opt-in to Internet Explorer 8's standards mode by adding in a new meta tag (or HTTP header) [...] Microsoft are demanding that we web standards developers favour them with time, cost and effort, while they continue to abrogate their responsibilities to their half a billion clients. [...] Microsoft on the other hand are now expecting us web developers to carry the burden of their responsibility. Instead of Microsoft abiding by the responsibility of rendering pages according to the open defined standards, Microsoft are intent on making standards-based pages second class citizens. [...] We web developers should not be paying for Microsoft's mistakes.

W3C Opens Data on the Web with SPARQL

http://www.w3.org

"W3C announced today the publication of SPARQL, the key standard for opening up data on the Semantic Web. With SPARQL query technology, pronounced "sparkle," people can focus on what they want to know rather than on the database technology or data format used behind the scenes to store the data. Because SPARQL queries express high-level goals, it is easier to extend them to unanticipated data sources, or even to port them to new applications. «Trying to use the Semantic Web without SPARQL is like trying to use a relational database without SQL» explained Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director. «SPARQL makes it possible to query information from databases and other diverse sources in the wild, across the Web» ..." via http://www.w3.org/News/2008#item6

Giant Global Graph

http://dig.csail.mit.edu

"...So the Net and the Web may both be shaped as something mathematicians call a Graph, but they are at different levels. The Net links computers, the Web links documents.

Now, people are making another mental move. There is realization now, 'It's not the documents, it is the things they are about which are important". Obvious, really' ..." -- Tim Berners-Lee.

Google, GNU/Linux and the future of personal computing

http://understandinglimited.com

"Nick Carr posted recently about 'Google, Apple and the future of personal computing'. I agree that mainstream popular computing is shifting from desktop apps to web apps, and while Microsoft is trying to do it all itself, specialist players like Apple and Google are forming coalitions. But I disagree that the future will be found in Apple: The future is in free software..."

400 Million Firefox downloads mean nothing

http://www.daniweb.com

So Mozilla has hit the 400 million downloads magic number, well whoopy doo, so what? The important thing is market share, and I don't see Mozilla jumping up and down yelling 'we have 8 percent, we have 8 percent' in fact in the posting they quote the Europe only figure of 28 percent which looks a lot better.

How people can miss what is Free Software and offend everyone in the process

http://forums.pligg.com

The developers of Pligg (the engine behind FSDaily) are willing to sell Pligg. The problem here is not the selling but what they are saying.
It is unbelievable that they miss completely what is the FSM, what "community" means and where they will be today if that community didn't have promoted them. They even call us free-riders in a very offensive way. Read more at the forum.
