FSM Newsletter 9th of April 2007

Firstly, we have just released Issue 17, and it is packed full of good things for your reading pleasure. Highly recommended, even if we do say so ourselves! Secondly, we are finally running our web site using Drupal 5! Not noticing anything different? Excellent. That means everything is working as planned. We rewrote our article management system, and are about to release it under the GPL as a Drupal module. This means that we are about to roll out several exciting features, which we have been hoarding up until the new site was out. So... stay tuned!

Swiftfox - the perverting of an open source browser

The technica behind "Ars Technica", old and busted

Over the last few years, we've had quite a few requests for a writeup on the inner workings of the Ars website. Unfortunately, I'm the least productive writer on the face of the planet, so said writeup never materialized. Until today! I'm going to be writing a series of posts covering the soft underbelly of Ars. It might take a week to get through it, it might take a month.

COTS and Other Electronic Voting Backdoors

  • OpEdNews; By Rebecca Mercuri, Vince Lipsio and Beth Feehan (Posted by Scott_Ruecker on Apr 9, 2007 5:12 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
In response to the growing concerns regarding H.R. 811, particularly with regard to the inspection of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) voting system components, I wanted to provide this article, previously published in the November 2006 issue of Communications of the Association for Computing Machinery. It is especially important to understand that COTS software products can include both open source (such as Red Hat Linux) and closed (or trade secret) source (such as Microsoft Windows [TM]), and that neither paradigm necessarily guarantees security. Indeed, the examination of source code for "correctness" is well known in the computer industry to be intractable (i.e. not fully solvable in reasonable time), but that does not mean that it should not be inspectable.

[It is interesting that that the voting machines are not required to be inspected, but then for those who got elected everything seems to be just fine. - Scott]

This week at LWN: Two approaches to Flash

The free software community has two independent projects working toward the implementation of a free Flash player: Gnash and swfdec.

Bringin' it Home - Tell Us Who You Are

There are many FOSS projects that never see the light of day. Not because they are bad or without merit...they suffocate from lack of exposure. It's not every day we can go spend a couple hours browsing Freshmeat or Sourceforge. Let's look at it this way. While all analogies eventually fail, I think I can hold this one together long enough to make the point.
