Firestar Software filed a claim on June 26th against Red Hat claiming that Red Hat infringes on a patent that Firestar filed in 2000. While the story is interesting from a patent and open source perspective (the open source community is not very fond of patents and believes they are a particularly vulnerable target because all of their source code is visible - see the ComputerWorld article I wrote, Moving on With Patents and Open-Source Software), I find the news breaking aspect even more interesting.
I've recounted a fair number of negative travel experiences in my life so I thought it was time to share a good one.
MercuryNews has an article about HP cutting back on telecommuting for its IT workers. When I saw that Slashdot had picked up the conversation, I eagerly read through the whole conversation (which isn't always easy on Slashdot!), hoping there would be a thread talking about how effective the open source community has been at essentially telecommuting. However I didn't find one, so here I am writing about it.
