I could be your next boss! It's not as scary as you think. We're a remote company with good benefits doing interesting work. What more could you ask for?

Did you miss the closing session at #LISA15? Watch it right now, it will change your life. Seriously, it's the best. Even if you've already watched it, watch it again.

If you use TTYtter and have been sad that the maintainer has halted development, you'll be glad to know there's a community fork in the works. The first step is to pick a new name: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1xkufmfy6WkeEDKRpuflIzCaKE-LKVBYw3GTt3zl_iAI/viewform?usp=send_form

I've seen a lot of talk about Article 14.17 of the TPP and how it could effectively ban the GPL. I'm not a lawyer, but the plain reading of the text would suggest that's not the case. In particular:

"3. Nothing in this Article shall preclude...the inclusion or implementation of terms and conditions related to the provision of source code in commercially negotiated contracts"

I suppose the validity of copyleft licenses under this treaty, if it is approved, will hinge on the interpretation of "commercially negotiated contracts."
