Subject: Internet-based and open source: How e-voting works around the globe

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

Currently, there are four major types of e-voting around the world that are worth keeping an eye on: Brazil’s homegrown direct recording electronic (DRE) setup, Australia’s open-source software, Estonia’s Internet voting, and a Spanish startup’s efforts to expand what’s been called "crypto-voting." Each of these approaches has its own unique set of problems, but the primary obstacles they present for many voting officials and computer scientists is their lack of ability to verify source code and expense.

Subject: Patent reform: Can preissuance submissions help?

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

While almost no one thinks that the America Invents Act (AIA) will completely solve America’s patent problems, there are a few provisions in the AIA that may be useful tools in limiting and/or preventing bad patents. One of these tools is the newly implemented Preissuance Submission procedure, which went into effect on September 16, 2012. This procedure allows third parties to participate in the patent application process by providing prior art, which can then be used by a patent examiner to determine whether a patent application lacks novelty or is otherwise obvious. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has now seized upon the new procedure to organize a project to identify pending applications related to 3D printing and then seek out relevant prior art for submission.

Subject: Branding and the open source marketplace

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

In the extremely overcrowded open source marketplace, marketing managers find it difficult to think of innovative ways to raise their brand's visibility. With so many brands jostling for attention, the low signal-to-noise ratio might tempt marketers into adopting an "everything but the kitchen sink" approach, attempting every idea from the marketing playbook in the hope that one will stick. However, this would be a mistake: careful niche marketing offers greater opportunities for brand advancements and market share. Let's see how.

To "celebrate" the launch of Windows 8 just a few days before Halloween, activists from the Free Software Foundation played a little trick and handed out some treats at a launch event in New York City. With a costume-clad "GNU" leading the effort, the FSF representatives handed out DVDs loaded with Trisquel along with FSF stickers and information about the group's new pledge.
