Build your own Del.icio.us website!

http://opencomputer.net

Pligg is for Digg as GetBoo is for Del.icio.us.

I was happily surprised to have found this open source project. Besides from being a website that can organize my bookmarks, GetBoo also releases the entire platform for download under GPL license. So, not only can I use their services but I can also copy it freely!

The "idealistic" Olympic officials as an illustration to understand the difference between free software and open source...

http://www.stallman.org

RMS: "...Isn't it sad to see the "idealistic" Olympic officials who believe (or at least say) that sport should be kept pure of distractions such as human rights? They reminds me of the "open source" supporters that think technology should be kept pure of distractions such as human rights."

Free games, free software--it's all good

http://www.news.com

It seems that some video game companies are beginning to change their business model based on products for another based on services.

"Relating this idea to open source, I can see a time when SugarCRM, JasperSoft, OpenBravo, etc., offer to certify third-party, community add-ons for a fee."

Microsoft Singularity: What is the mess we've been handed?

http://penguinpetes.com

I'm totally tortured with agonizing over Microsoft's Singularity. See, I have a standing moral obligation with myself as follows: If Microsoft ever released a purely Open-Source or Free Software system - as defined by the Free Software Foundation, the Open Source Initiative, or common conventional wisdom - I have said (and will repeat here) that I would download it, try it out, review it, and possibly adopt it, to be treated no different from software from, for example, Red Hat Inc. or BSD.
