Musings From Studio Dave

  • Linux Journal; By Dave Phillips (Posted by dcparris on Jul 7, 2006 4:30 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Linux
So now I'm a blogger. Well, this column has been a kind of journal anyway, a chronicle of my life and times in the world of Linux sound and music software, and hopefully it's as enjoyable for you to read as it is for me to write. You can expect little change from the style and content of my previous articles, despite my imminent bloggification, but in accord with the popular definitions of a blog I'll be a little less formal and sometimes a lot more personal. Not that there's much fuel for acrid controversy in the world of Linux sound and music software, but there are issues occasionally and I'd like to speak plainly regarding them.

Rethinking Community Documentation

A new era is halfway here, and nobody has recognized its impact--even though we've all participated eagerly in its arrival. The way we educate ourselves to use and program computers is shifting along many of the same historic lines as journalism, scientific publication, and other information-rich fields. Researchers have pounced on those other trends, but computer education remains short on commentary.

The strategic programmes and initiatives offered by IBM include educational initiatives such as the setting up of a Linux education programme to certify Maltese students, selected by the Government, as Linux Entry Level Administrators.

Ubuntu and Debian

From the VS. dept.:
Ubuntu caused a lot of friction with and for Debian. In discussions with its founder, Mark Shuttleworth, and other Ubuntu developers during (and before) Debconf6, I was able to spell out the main criticisms from the Debian perspectives of the way Canonical/Ubuntu is handling things (without a claim to completeness). These criticisms mainly stem from discussions with fellow developers over the past 18 months, and I largely support all of them. I am publicising them here to help make the status quo more transparent.

Microsoft's Open XML Project Deemed a Short-Term Fix

Critics say the installable software plug-ins created by the Open XML Translator project are a stopgap measure that will probably not be acceptable to governments in the long run.

Toronto high school expels Linux lab

A computer science facility that had been running without a hitch for years is shut down as a Microsoft system is set up across the board. Was it a knock against open source, or just classroom politics?

SCO fails to mention IBM ruling to Red Hat Judge

Anti Linux bad boy SCO seems to be a bit embarrassed about having most of its case against IBM chucked out.

Each 90 days the outfit has to pen a letter to the Judge in charge of a similar case against Red Hat and the latest edition almost fails to mention the fact.

[References and links to Groklaw for the letter itself. -- grouch]

This week at LWN: The eSpeak Speech Synthesizer

Your author has been interested in computer speech synthesis since the late 1970s, when he interfaced a Votrax SC-01A speech synthesizer chip to his Imsai 8080 computer with some wire-wrap wire. News of the recently created eSpeak project naturally piqued his long-time interest in speech synthesis.

eSpeak is a compact phoneme-based speech synthesis system that is available under version 2 of the Gnu General Public license.
