SCO's hometown paper sees bad things coming

Filed under

SCO's Linux and IBM lawsuits haven't been going well, and the stock market's beginning to notice. SCO's hometown newspaper, the Salt Lake City Tribune, notes that SCO's stock has fallen from its October 2003 high of $20.50 per share to an August 1 close of $2.28.

It's actually far, far worse than that. In May 2002, before SCO launched its lawsuit against IBM, the company had a 4-to-1 reverse stock split. In other words, every four shares of existing Caldera stock were converted into one share, Therefore, if you owned Caldera stock in April 2002, your current shares are worth an all-time low of about 57 cents a share.

No one who owned shares in the beleaguered Unix company went on record with their thoughts about the company's future business prospects.

APIStrat Boston to highlight link between APIs and open source projects

This year's API Strategy and Practice (known as APIStrat)—to be held in Boston on November 2-4—has a strong open source component running throughout the event, and with little wonder. Successful API strategies more often than not either contribute new open source projects, or draw on the rich source of tools already built by the open source community. The API mindset has always lent itself to an open source ethos. APIs are all about opening up internal assets, data, and systems in order to connect and collaborate with a wider ecosystem of partners and end users. Amongst leadership businesses that have a strong API strategy, seeing so many contribute and use open source projects is not surprising, and this is reflected throughout this year's APIStrat program. After all, two of the key specifications formats that are used across the industry to describe APIs—the Open API Initiative and RAML—are both open source projects. Projects like Mashape's Kong and Tyk's API Gateway are both open source and gaining greater recognition and uptake. Read more
