文章点评

GNU 35周年了

原文链接:Happy Birthday, GNU: Why I still love GNU 35 years later

适兕点评:

或许了解历史的人会觉得悲凉,甚至有点惋惜,但是世界就是这样,要往前发展,不管你做一件事情的目的有多么高的道德立场,如果你没有得到别人的帮助,那么就是失败的。

GNU 的作用客观的讲,如果没有的话,就没有开源的今天。但是仅止于此,让它坚守在哪里!

Time Berners-Lee 创建了新项目,去中心化的互联网

原文链接:Tim Berners-Lee unveils Solid, a framework to decentralize the internet and give back control to users

适兕点评:

Berners-Lee transformed the world once. It would take a brave man to bet against his doing it again.

But if Solid might seem like a hopelessly ambitious and idealistic project, 我只想说的是,对抗权威的存在,一直都有人在。

我非常赞赏这些英雄,不顾普通民众,就是热爱出卖隐私,来换取物质或是某种蝇头小利。学术界早有定论,不然商家那么多的营销策略该如何生效?为什么人们买那么多的用不着的东西?

Inner Source 的未来

原文链接:[The Future of Inner Source(https://thenewstack.io/the-future-of-inner-source/)

适兕点评:

曾经我也一度认为Inner Source 是一些企业蛮好的选择,可是在那之前你要改变的是人们的观念,有的时候我在怀疑,你为什么要去改变人们的观念这件事,人家活的好好的。但话说回来,你只能改变那些愿意去改变的人,你永远无法叫醒一个装睡的人。

That business strategy is neither set overnight nor set in stone. It’s a slow and collaborative process that evolves with the level of maturity and adoption of the core open source projects. From basic enterprise support and services or light enterprise plugins to fully hosted platform with an entirely distinct codebase, there are many different shades of open core models. The choice of the open core and licensing models greatly impact the level of collaboration between the commercial open source software companies and their respective communities as well as internal company cultures.

开源和任何其它的生意一样,天下哪里有什么容易的事情。

微软重新开源MS-DOS,不过这次是在GitHub上

原文链接:Microsoft open sources MS-DOS again, this time on GitHub

适兕点评:

上次是在2014年,放在了计算机历史博物馆了,仅供人们参考。正如Adobe开源1.0的代码一样,都是陈年旧事,仅供大家学习罢了。

Hyperledger 和 Enterprise Ethereum Alliance 联合

原文链接:Hyperledger And Enterprise Ethereum Alliance Join Forces In Enterprise Blockchain Boost

适兕点评:

区块链的ICO(initial coin offering)终于消停了。货币真的那么重要吗?我需要多少货币?

实实在在的干点融入社区的正事。

华为以白金会员加入开放计算项目

原文链接:Huawei Joins Open Compute Project as Platinum Member

适兕点评:

“Huawei becomes the 5th company from China to join the Open Compute Project. Being a leading provider in China’s domestic market, Huawei will play an important role in the adoption of open and efficient cloud hardware around the globe, and can help us build a collaborative community across China,” 这就是华为的战略。看好OCP,第一次获悉OCP的性质:OCP is a 501©(6) foundation initiated in 2011, by Facebook。

开源的机器学习不仅是免费的,还是连啤酒都提供的免费

原文链接:Open-Source Machine Learning Is Free, As In Beer

适兕点评:

作者是:Simon is CTO at SWIM.AI. He also co-founded Bromium, was CTO at Citrix, Founder and CTO of XenSource, and a Principal Engineer at Intel.

不得不佩服这些高管的资历,文章写得也是一流水准,受过相当的学术训练。观点也是非常的正。其中对于ML拥抱开源的解释是非常正! 比如因为ML非常的先进,科学家们的参与也是重中之重。

Cloudera 和Hortonworks 竞争性合并

原文链接:Cloudera and Hortonworks shares skyrocket as rivals merge

适兕点评:

有业内专家称是因为学习了国内的战略性合并,比如滴滴合并Uber之类的,云计算厂商侵占独立软件提供商的份额看来真的不容轻视,在国内这块地方,可能情况会更甚。

Mike Volpi 今天很忙,因为有两个开源公司的重大交易

原文链接:This tech investor had a killer week thanks to two big open-source deals

适兕点评:

Peter Fenton 堪称开源投资界的天之娇子,现在再加上 Mike Volpi, 再加上近来的Joseph Jacks,为开源软件投资的三位人物。都拥有独到的眼光。

微软刚刚将60000专利托管到OIN

原文链接:Microsoft Just Did Something Big With 60,000 Patents

适兕点评:

专利之争,正在变成创新的障碍! 科学从来不怕复制。这篇文章除了报道事实之外,就是《财富》的这个论断了:But as open source technologies have become more popular with developers and corporations in recent years, Microsoft has shifted its attitude towards the tech that it once considered a major threat to its business.

开源就是未来,但是它的花销也是超乎你的想像的

原文链接:Open source is the future, but it will cost you more than you think

适兕点评:

文章仅仅是文章,缺乏严谨的论证。这个科学家或分析师们的论文还是差了十万八千里的。

Redis 和 Common Clause 最终受害的是:开源代码

原文链接:Redis Labs and Common Clause attacked where it hurts: With open-source code

适兕点评:

果不其然,开源内部由于Redis 的商业行为,已经开始出现可怕的分支风险。

静观其变吧,The struggle between open-source developers and Common Clause adopters is on.

互联网创始人 Tim Berners Lee 打算重新去中心化互联网

原文链接: Tim Berners lee is on a mission to decentralize the web

适兕点评:

我们每个人都应该感激Berners Lee,但是这位科学家认为现在的互联网,大型企业获得了太多的数据,这涉及到伦理问题。于是,要重新搞一套内容,可以让用户的数据保留在自己手中的技术。这确实是一项非常棒的值得人类铭记的壮举。

“This is a man that understands the web truly better than anyone else on the planet,” Bruce said. “And the wheels of innovation have really just started to turn.”
