: “And I want my update, dammit.” Well written words about OS X.1 availability.
any doubt, Cory Doctorow’s post about a parking lot, his grandmother’s worries, and network backups at Boing Boing is surely his best post ever! “And here I am, a pathological worrier in the guise of an sf writer. For me, the worry revolves around backup.”
the good folks over at OpenCOLA: the OpenCola.com soft drink formula. Noted with interest: the typically Canadian use of the term “soft drink”. I assume that’s one Cory Doctorow’s influences. Be sure to read the following: “this is *not* the recipe for “OpenCola” — that is, the canned beverage that you may have received at a trade show or similar venue. Making canned cola requires millions of dollars in abstruse gear and manufactory gizmos. Making that kind of cola is unrealistic. You need to manage your expectations better. Grow up already. This is a kitchen-sink recipe that you can make all on your own.”
Cory Doctorow writes about [His] Date with the Gnomes of San Jose at the first P2P Working Group meeting, which looks like it might be a stillborn effort by Intel to coopt (or just to support?) the peer-to-peer community.
Really great quote from the article: “[peer to peer nets are] faery infrastructure, networks whose maps form weird n-dimensional topologies of surpassing beauty and chaos; mad technological hairballs run by ad-hocracies whose members each act in their own best interests.
In a nutshell, peer-to-peer technology is goddamn wicked. It’s esoteric. It’s unstoppable. It’s way, way cool.”
