"NetApplications, ... measure, monitor and market Web sites for Small to Medium Enterprises (SME)"
[ED: Meaning they measure a fraction of the total market and of that fraction - what portion they have as clients that are measured?

WordPress 2.0 is out, and it brings a slew of improvements and new features, including WYSIWYG editing, user roles, easy database backups, and more. The WordPress home page describes the software as "state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform," but when you boil it down, WordPress is just damn good blogging software.

For an application that isn't even publicly available, AllPeers – a Firefox plug-in being developed in Prague – is receiving a great deal of hype. Some are even predicting that this will be Firefox's killer app.
AllPeers is simply a peer-to-peer (P2P) technology that allows you to share digital content with a buddy list. Using Firefox as the front-end, AllPeers says that it will run cross-platform, allowing transfers between Windows, Mac and Linux, and possibly more in the future. And, like Firefox, it's going to be open source.
One of the arguments in Massachusetts against OpenDocument centered on the needs of the visually impaired. In this guest column, a visually impaired PC user explains that not only is using an exclusively Windows solution a crash-prone option, it is also far more expensive than equivalent technologies in OS X and, eventually, Linux. Scott Seder makes the case for more open source development in the Assistive Technology arena.
