  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: GNU
The Software Freedom Conservancy's Bradley Kuhn is probably best known for his work in enforcing the GNU General Public License (GPL).

  • Story Type: News Story
They say life imitates art. But, I believe life imitates technology. Look at distributed systems, decentralized computing, open source, and lean principles. With these and other technical initiatives, we've pushed boundaries and improved our applications, our networks, our companies, and our lives. We can develop and deploy new applications in minutes rather than in weeks or months. We can communicate with strangers and loved ones around the globe in milliseconds. We can create random crowds of investors, who together can fund a person's dream. read more

Why Linux is More Practical Than OS X

OS X is a solid operating system for those who enjoy Apple's vision of the ideal desktop. It offers access to pro-level applications that many industries rely on. Yet it isn't always the most practical operating system for the casual end user. In fact, in some cases, it's completely overkill.

Effective IPR Policies and Standards Organization Success
