The Red Hat JBoss team posted an update on the status of JBoss Enterprise Middleware releases.
Luis Villa stepped in to the mess of software patents and and their applicability to h264 and Ogg. "Let this be a friendly public service announcement: patent law says that anyone who uses a patent, not just the manufacturer or licensor of the patent-infringing good, can potentially be dragged into court on a charge of patent infringement." Luis followed-up with some clarifications. "More patent lessons- first on submarine patents (basics!) and then on how patent pools are licensed. I don’t really want to continue this series, but the past few days have been a good reminder that there is a lot of misinformation out there around patents."
Karsten Wade wrote about better ways to use Wikipedia in the classroom. "Where Wikipedia is a useful information source and starting place for deeper exploration beyond it’s reference-focused world, there is so much more that can be done with it to help teach the open source way. In fact, you can teach all of the basics of joining a collaborative free and open source software community without ever getting more technical than how to get an account and edit a wiki page."
