Rip Off

Link number two is a complete rip-off of my article (that got featured on tuxmachines) a while back.

It's all the same stuff, worded the same, just in a different position.

Real article:

re: Rip Off

According to Stallman, it's all about Freedom, so relax, it's not plagiarism, it's just "sharing".

re: rip off

well, I knew there wasn't anything new there.

oh man, you'd be surprised (or maybe not) how many blogs are ripping others off. About 20% of the links I check out in a day sound tooo familiar. If I google some of the text, many times I'll find it.

And a lot of sites recycle articles, just give them a new title. Heck forbes ran one today that sounded like a killer until I realized it was a recycle from bmighty that was a recycle from computerworld.

it's a lot of work just running an aggregator site. Big Grin

OSS Leftovers

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.
  • Firefox Quantum Now Available on openSUSE Tumbleweed, Linux 4.14 Coming Soon
    Users of the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling operating system can now update their computers to the latest and greatest Firefox Quantum web browser.
  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
