The Pandemic Heroes Who Gave us the Gift of Time and Gift of Information
Moderna’s vaccine was apparently designed in just a few days, over a weekend, after the genetic sequence became available on January 10th, 2020.

Here’s why that date matters: the sequence was published ten days before China acknowledged the severity of the problem by admitting sustained human-to-human transmission and shutting down the city of Wuhan, on January 20th. The sequence was published while China—and the WHO, which depended on China for information—were still downplaying what was going on, in their official statements. The sequence wasn’t published in an official document. Instead, it was published independently in an open-source depository by Yong-Zhen Zhang, a professor at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center and School of Public Health.

5 open source alternatives to GitHub because GitHub is not open source, and conditions of service can change

Content warning: Git is a popular version-control system, primarily used for code but popular in other disciplines, too. It can run locally on your computer for personal use, it can run on a server for collaboration, and it can also run as a hosted service for widespread

 
I didn't realize when i bought it that the book was written 2006, but I'm still pretty interested to read "Producing Open Source Software," by Karl Fogel.

I just joined an #opensource software company and I have a lot to learn.

Banking software firm tiptoes off to the cloud with MariaDB after $2m Oracle licence shocker


Financial services software specialist FNI has dodged a $2m licensing bullet by jumping off Oracle databases and lifting its MariaDB environment to the cloud.

The banking technology services company is moving its loan risk management system to MariaDB's DBaaS SkySQL, with a heritage in the open-source MySQL family, hosted on the Google Cloud Platform, a transition set to be complete in the next month.

In der neuen #Knallbunt Ausgabe geht es um #Digitalisierung und was sie mit #Nachhaltigkeit zu tun hat. Es geht um #OpenSource, #Monopole, #Postwachstum und wie wir es vielleicht schaffen, mit Technik eine #Utopie statt einer #Dystopie zu schaffen.

#LibreOffice is our everyday go-to for spreadsheets and documents. Why use products from #privacy invading big tech companies, when there is a legit #opensource alternative with a rapid development cycle?

Better yet, you can be part of the change to smaller tech:

Funny thing.... I was at saturn, some bigger german electronics market... We looked for a new laptop for a friend.. While standing with some clerk on the computer to find the best offer for him, i spotted this gem.

#GIMP #version #2.10, in box, with #printed #manual (!), for 14,99€


At first .. i didn't really understand what the offer should be for a opensource app for more than ten bucks..

But then i learned that it included a printed manual (which explained the weight of the somewhat compact package;)).

After looking around, i spotted a bunch of comparable offers of open source software, most probably all of them including some sort of printed manual at least.

To be honest, i'm not the biggest friend of selling open source software (including only a windows binary on this one).

But ... yes i can respect that they put in the effort to distill a ready to install storage medium and a printed manual of some sort.

I don't know about the quality of the handbook itself ... and i expect that most of the content printed in there is open available documentation anyways.

But yes....

In the end .. i like it.. To see #GIMP .. as a commercially available software.... within reasonable borders..... ;)

"Wenn du den Quellcode eines Projektes nicht einsehen kannst, gehe davon aus, dass es sich um ein unseriöses Projekt handelt"
Zitat aus der #Crypto #Blockchain Welt #OpenSource #FLOSS
Hello lovely people! I'm thinking about developing a distributed, decentralized platform for exchanging and subscribing to calendar-based content. It will become an open source solution. Is there any experience here in the community with similar solutions that already exist or have failed? What do you think is best practice for distributed solutions in 2020? Architecture, protocols, interfaces, server-side technology ... ? Thanks :)

So, jetzt habe ich also lauter freie Software, auch zum ausprobieren für andere: Einmal Lerntools, einmal Humhub, einmal Funkwhale, einmal Peertube.
Aber wo kriege ich jetzt den Medienrechtler (m/w/d) her, der mir hilft Nutzungsbedingungen so zu formulieren, dass ich rechtlich aus dem Schneider bin? Und mich kein Vermögen kostet. EineR mit ♥️ für #OpenSource
Würde sie danach gerne als Creative Commons veröffentlichen, damit andere nicht das gleiche Problem haben.

Bye-Bye #Microsoft: Die gut 25.000 Landesmitarbeiter.innen in Schleswig-Hiolstein, die bisher noch vor allem mit Microsoft-Produkten arbeiten, müssen sich bis 2025 umgewöhnen. Was das bedeutet , darüber habe ich mit Landes-CIO Sven Thomsen gesprochen. Der ist selbst großer #OpenSource-Fan. Er arbeitet daran, dass die Landesverwaltung in Zukunft mit einem Mix aus #Nextcloud, #LDAP, #OpenXChange, #Jitsi und #LibreOffice arbeitet. Und am Ende evtl. sogar #Linux. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhVP1Ozc35s

Obsidian 0.9.6

Breaking changes
  • Block references now require the ^ character to be part of the link, like so: [[Filename#^blockid]].
  • Block auto-complete will generate this new format automatically.
  • The old format from v0.9.5 [[Filename#blockid]] will stop working.
  • A conversion tool is added for existing block references from v0.9.5. Use the Markdown format importer plugin’s “Block ID upgrade”. Remember to backup your notes since this operates on the whole vault.
Improvements
  • Block auto-complete will also display and search the block ID if one is present.
  • Block IDs can now contain the dash character -.
  • Auto-complete trigger with the prefix #^ such as [[Filename#^ now behaves identically to [[Filename^.
  • “Toggle checklist status” command/hotkey now adds the checkbox syntax - [ ] for any selected lines that does not already have a checkbox.
No longer broken
  • Image size syntax now works for internal images using the markdown standard link format.
  • Link auto-complete no longer strip characters after a . in the filename when using Markdown links.

BiglyBT is a feature filled, open source, ad-free, bittorrent client.
BiglyBT is the continuation of the Vuze/Azureus open source project first created in 2003, and is being actively developed by the original coders.
We've kept all of the features you love, while dropping the ones you probably don't (such as ads and third party software).
If you are already using Azureus or Vuze then see what features and fixes you are missing. You'll have the option to copy and migrate the configuration settings, downloads, and plugins.
