Craigslist, Spies Injected Into Hans Reiser Hearing

Filed under
Reiser

Antonios Zografos, an Oakland man who dated Nina Reiser for about eight months before she disappeared, said he became concerned when he couldn't reach her by phone the afternoon of Sept. 3, as they had planned to meet around 5:30 p.m. to have dinner and see a movie.

Zografos said he met Nina Reiser on July 30, 2005, after she responded to an ad he placed on a section of the Craigslist Web site for single parents who want to meet other single parents for engaging in mutual activities with their children. He said she had also placed on her own ad.

Zografos said their relationship became intimate in January.

Zografos said, "We became very close rather quickly" and they had discussed moving in together when her divorce was finalized.

Under further questioning by DuBois, Zografos said he downloaded some material from Nina Reiser's computer to search for clues to her disappearance and discovered links to personal ads on Craigslist.

Cloud convenience is killing the open source database

Open source has never been more important or, ironically, irrelevant. As developers increasingly embrace the cloud to shorten time to market, they're speeding past open source, making it even harder to build an open source business. After all, if open source were largely a way for developers to skirt legal and purchasing departments to get the software they needed when they needed it, the cloud ups that convenience to the nth degree. In Accel's annual business review, the vaunted venture capital firm writes: "'Product' is no longer just the bits of software, it's also how the software is sold, supported, and made successful." The cloud is changing the way all software is consumed, including open source. Read more

Why the operating system matters even more in 2017

Operating systems don't quite date back to the beginning of computing, but they go back far enough. Mainframe customers wrote the first ones in the late 1950s, with operating systems that we'd more clearly recognize as such today—including OS/360 from IBM and Unix from Bell Labs—following over the next couple of decades.
