KernelTrap: AdSense Revenue Sharing

KernelTrap is now offering AdSense revenue sharing on a trial basis. To participate, you will first need a Google AdSense account (follow the link within if you do not already have an AdSense account). Next, you will need tocreate a KernelTrap user account and enter your publically viewable google_ad_client ID. Finally,contribute original and relevant content to KernelTrap, and 80% of the profits generated will be automatically credited to your AdSense account. This applies to new forum postings, as well as personal blogs. Inapproriate or otherwise not relevant content will be removed, and the offending user accounts will be blocked. This is a new program that I am doing on a trial basis, if you have any problems with funds not appearing in your AdSense account please send an email to and I will help track down the problem so that future funds are properly credited to your account. The goal is to encourage submission of useful original content related to Kernel development -- if instead this leads to the contribution of useless or offtopic posts, the program will be canceled.

I'll be completely offline for the rest of the month, and thus unable to make updates to KernelTrap [blog]. I am currently displaying the ten most recently updated forum discussions on the front age. Please help out by submitting relevant kernel articles into the appropriate forum. I'm continuing to search for ways to further liven these web pages during stretches that I personally have limited time. Discussion on related ideas is welcome here.

Play it again anywhere, Sam: MP3Tunes Oboe

Taking music along with you can be a hassle, even in the iPod age. You have to bring along either CDs or your MP3 player with you everywhere you go; and then you have to spend time sorting your music manually at each location, which I find to be a huge time waster. Even though the iPod Nanos and other similar MP3 players are very small, it still is a bit of a bother to have yet one more device in my brief case.

Odpm boosts use of open source with certification

  •; By Anusha Bradley, UK (Posted by tadelste on Jan 19, 2006 5:45 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
A certification scheme for suppliers of open source software (OSS) is expected to help public sector IT buyers make better procurement decisions.

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) is encouraging government bodies and local councils to use OSS because it is free to download and is easier to integrate with other systems. To support this drive, the ODPM funded the formation of the Open Source Academy (OSA), a group of nine IT bodies and local authorities, to develop a certification scheme.

Behind the GPL version 3--and beyond

The General Public License covers some of the most important software in widespread use: Linux, MySQL (dual-licensed by the vendor), Samba, and many other modern packages, not to forget the suite of compiler tools and command-line utilities from the Free Software Foundation, for which the GPL was originally designed.

That's why hundreds of people came to hear Richard Stallman and Eben Moglen (law professor and general counsel for the FSF) lay out their proposed new version of GPL on Monday. And why the audience included world-renowned leaders from many free software projects--even some projects such as Apache that aren't covered by the GPL.
