Open-source intelligence moving to the fore

The development and sharing of open-source information may be the first arena where true collaboration among all the agencies in the intelligence community — a requirement in the post-9/11 world — takes hold. At least, Douglas Naquin, director of the Open Source Center in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, is working hard to make it come true.

Bring back deleted files with lsof

There you are, happily playing around with an audio file you've spent all afternoon tweaking, and you're thinking, "Wow, doesn't it sound great? Lemme just move it over here." At that point your subconscious chimes in, "Um, you meant mv, not rm, right?" Oops. I feel your pain -- this happens to everyone. But there's a straightforward method to recover your lost file, and since it works on every standard Linux system, everyone ought to know how to do it.

Zack Rusin interviewed on the Linux Link Tech Show

Yesterday night Zack Rusin made a guest appearance on The Linux Link Tech Show. He discussed recent developments in the X.Org project, Qt, KDE, his life in Norway and some other Open Source related issues. It is a lengthy interview that should satisfy those who say Zack's not blogging and responding to questions often enough.

Show Me the Product

Microsoft and novell made big IT news on Nov. 2 by announcing a historic burying of the hatchet, the likes of which we haven't seen since Sun and Microsoft promised to work together on big interoperability stuff.

Python Phrasebook (Developer's Library)

Having recently reviewed JavaScript Phrasebook by Christian Wenz for the Linux Tutorial site and Wesley Chun's Core Python Programming for Linux Magazine (due out in next month's issue), I was excited to get the opportunity to review the brand-new Python Phrasebook. Apparently Brad Dayley was also excited about writing this book as he states in the Introduction: 'I was excited when my editor asked me to write a phrasebook on the Python language. The phrasebook is one of the smallest books I have ever written; however, it was one of the hardest.'

Firing up the Erudine engine

This is the next article in our occasional series on new, more formal (mathematically-based) approaches to system development. The first article looked at Bayesian analysis and formal methods (which are only "new" to the general development space, of course).

Mapping the universe with open source software

I'm remiss in blogging on the transition in Massachusetts as Louis Gutierrez leaves his position as State CIO (Gutierrez announced that he would resign a month ago), and as Mitt Romney wraps up his single term as governor and looks forward, he hopes, to bigger political games than our small state can offer.

Open Source Geospatial Software Provides an Enterprise Alternative ...

  • DirectionsMag.com; By Christopher J. Andrews (Posted by Scott_Ruecker on Nov 16, 2006 11:41 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial
In the past several years, I have encountered a variety of public utilities and municipalities that have fewer than 10 technical staff members. Each of these clients spoke with me about making the transition to the right enterprise GIS for their size organization. Typically, I prefer to drive requirements discussions away from technology and toward the functionality that the client needs to improve his business. However, most of my clients are decision makers who nearly always hold preconceived opinions about which would be the right technology to solve their particular problems.

Linux users getting banned from WoW?

This does not bode well for Linux gamers, and it's a weird coincidence that we hear about this a few days after announcing Wine on the site. It seems that Linux-using World of Warcraft players are getting banned left and right.
