Hans Reiser Murder Trial Delayed 2 Days

Filed under
Reiser

The Hans Reiser murder trial was delayed for two days Monday. Prosecutor Paul Hora is unable to attend the proceedings here in Alameda County Superior Court until Wednesday. His wife had a baby boy Saturday.

The trial of the Linux programmer, who is accused of killing his estranged wife Nina Reiser, began Nov. 6. There have been about 50 witnesses. Hora was expected to rest his case this week, and now that appears unlikely.

The defendant, 44, the operator of Namesys, might take the stand when his attorneys put a defense.

Poor Hans

Not to beat a dead horse :dead:

But this is hardly a fine example of "Innocent UNTIL proven guilty".

It's all well and nice that the Prosecutor can take time off for a personal matter, but meanwhile Reiser is locked in Jail with no freedom, and has yet to be proven guilty of anything but having once been married to the missing person.

If the overzealous DA can't convince the jury with a preponderance of evidence that Reiser is guilty of murder (even though there is no proof the person is dead, let alone murdered, let alone murdered by Reiser), I hope Reiser files a HUGE lawsuit against the clowns that started this circus.

Why the Open Source Stars Must Align

Open source projects like OpenStack, Docker, OPNFV and OpenDaylight are more supported and better funded than ever before. They mark a broader trend of large, active and well-resourced open source projects that are among the leaders in Big Data, cloud computing, operating systems and development practices. Open source has come a long way in 30 years – and its success marks a new era for the overall OSS community. But success does not come without potential pitfalls. One of the greatest obstacles to project success isn’t the proprietary competition – it’s the lack of communication between large open source projects like OpenStack and Docker. Read more

Myth Busting the Open-Source Cloud Part 1

On the contrary, open-source cloud computing products are designed from the outset with security in mind. For example, there are features such as identity management to monitor who has access to content, and data encryption to safeguard information while it’s at rest or in transit. Furthermore, open-source cloud software is peer-reviewed by community participants, leading to continuous improvements in the quality of security features and mechanisms. This community also monitors and rapidly discloses vulnerabilities and issues, and provides security updates to address them. Read more

What does an adult look like in an open source community?

You're no longer "just an adult." You're now trusted and looked to for opinions on how the community should grow. You're a community elder. You embody the history. You keep the history. You work together with other adults and elders to guide and make the community stronger. And to a certain extent, the community once again looks after you, just as it did in the first phase. Read more
