Open Source Rocks

| I've been doing a little work on a proof-of-concept for a new fully
| WordPress driven alexking.org site. I'm working off of the current WP
| trunk ("trunk" is the place bugs are created in any software), so naturally
| I ran into a couple of minor issues.
| After a brief IM conversation with Ryan to make sure I was fixing the
| issues correctly, I submitted a patch and minutes later it was
| committed. Fantastic!


Totally Free Wordpress Hosting

,----[ Quote ]
| Now I will explain the procedure I tested. Just keep in mind that while it
| shows how to work with Wordpress blog engine, the idea can work for any other
| web or other resource you'd like to use. I looked over the web for all sorts
| of virtualization techniques, and the one I found to be the easiest is the
| VMWare image of rPath Wordpress Appliance. It is the basic VMWare image of a
| virtual computer, which includes all required software components needed to
| run Wordpress. Its size is about 130Mb, which is while not that small, is not
| big either - a connection to DSL would be enough to get it in about half an
| hour. * * * *


Blogging as open source fact checking

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source software community often quotes the Linus Law. "With
| enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow." That is, having multiple people
| poring over your lines of code is an excellent way find errors. It's not
| like a thousand people are collaboratively writing database software, but
| all those people are looking over the shoulders of the few who are.
| Blogs are doing that to media...
| How these organizations respond may very well point to their future
| success. Will they see these legion bloggers as adversaries? (Think of
| how Microsoft "competes" with Linux.) Or will they find inspiration in,
| say, the Digg model, harnessing countless tiny points of participation
| to harness the collective intelligence of their audience and feeding it
| back into their product?

Movable Type goes open source, enters WordPress turf

,----[ Quote ]
| Movable Type goes open source, enters WordPress turf6 days ago, Movable Type
| announced that its software is now open source. With a number of killer
| features built in and a thriving developer community, the organization may be
| well positioned to woo users from WordPress.
| Since Movable Type’s launch, there has always been a free version available
| with fewer features than the commercialized product. According to the Movable
| Type’s blog, “back in late 2002 and early 2003, [cofounders] Ben and Mena had
| both been adamant about one particular point from the very beginning of the
| negotiations: That there would always be a free version of Movable Type with
| the source code freely available.”

Movable Type 4.0 Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| Movable Type 4.0 represents a significant step forward for a platform that
| has been losing its competitive edge to free, less sophisticated alternatives
| that continue to improve. The full-featured Movable Type 4.0 Beta is a fine
| alternative to Wordpress or Blogger. Developers and bloggers who want to
| create a unique platform will like this GPL-licensed open-source version,
| though the awkward interface still makes it less than ideal for inexperienced
| Web publishers. * * *
