Subject: An Introduction to Application Development with Catalyst and Perl

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Catalyst is the latest in the evolution of open-source Web development frameworks. Written in modern Perl and inspired by many of the projects that came before it, including Ruby on Rails, Catalyst is elegant, powerful and refined. It's a great choice for creating any Web-based application from the simple to the very complex.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hendrik Knoche is a computer scientist, specializing in human-computer interaction, and he’s been working with farmers in rural India to create smart phone apps so they can crowdsource agricultural information. The challenge is that many farmers in rural areas are illiterate, so how do you create an app that’s easy and accessible to use?

Subject: Study explains how retailers stop Linux from entering the market

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The Portuguese Open Source Business Association (ESOP) has published a white paper PDF which aims to explain the problems laptop manufacturers are facing when trying to introduce systems preloaded with Linux to the market. The report, which is titled "Laptop retail oligopoly: the unnoticed digital divide", analyses the current laptop market with the help of game theory and concludes that it is "bound to a configuration which is not efficient" and does not benefit consumers. In another publication PDF from January, the organisation had detailed the sales failure experienced by an open source software bundle, which included Linux, that was pre-installed on laptops locally built and marketed in Portugal. The failure of Portuguese retailers to supply these laptops led to the second study analysing that behaviour by the market.

Subject: Music labels force pioneering MP3tunes into bankruptcy

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The latest in the recording industry's ten-year grudge match with Michael Robertson. MP3tunes, a music locker service that has spent years locked in litigation with major record labels, announced last week that it was closing up shop. The startup scored a partial victory in court last year, helping to establish the legality of cloud music services in the process. But founder Michael Robertson says that "four and a half years of legal torment" forced his company to file for bankruptcy on April 27. The filing is only the latest development in a decade-long grudge match between the recording industry and Robertson. Robertson has a knack for starting businesses that threaten to disrupt the business models of music industry incumbents, and they have responded with waves of tough litigation, using every available tactic to drive him out of business. The closure of MP3tunes is another notch in the labels' belt, but it's unlikely to be the last we hear from Robertson.

As the One Laptop Per Child initiative goes from strength to strength around the world, there are signs that Pakistan may be getting the message too, after the Punjab government began handing out 125,000 free Ubuntu-based laptops to college and university freshers. Chairman of the Punjab Information Technology Board, Umar Saif, said the project was designed to “facilitate better access to educational content and tools”, adding that it was the first project of its kind on such a scale to use open source software.

Subject: Paradigm Shift

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

A Paradigm shift: A change in the basic assumptions, or paradigms. A shift in the distinct concepts or thought patterns in epistemological context. That is to say, new premises. All my life I've been a hard working Linux user. I tried to maintain my OS, keep up with my optimizations. But recently my attitude towards computing changed greatly. It was a slow change, spread over a year; but change I did. Before starting to explain what I am talking about I should say that there is no better way of doing things, there is only doing.

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Xubuntu 12.04 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
