must be open, reviewable.
I wrote this piece in response to the #volkswagen scandal a few weeks ago, in support of ideas Eben Moglen put forward. It's insane that we test automobile hardware for safety, but can't inspect the code.

"Last week, we warned about the impending deadline if you wanted to unlock your phone "legally." That's because the Librarian of Congress took away the DMCA anti-circumvention exemption that allowed phone unlocking. If you're wondering why we even have the Librarian of Congress deciding such things, that's a much longer discussion."

Cloud computing is often compared to the power utility model as part of a trend towards the commoditization of computing resources. However, today's cloud providers do not simply supply raw computing resources as a commodity, but also act as distributors, dictating cloud services that are not compatible across providers. Proposed is a a new cloud service distribution layer, called a Supercloud, that is completely decoupled from the cloud provider. Leveraging a nested paravirtualization layer called the Xen-Blanket, the Supercloud maintains the control necessary to implement hypervisor-level services and management. Using the Xen-Blanket to transform various cloud provider services into a unified offering, article describes how software has deployed a Supercloud across Amazon's EC2, an enterprise cloud, and Cornell University, and performed live VM migration between the different sites. Furthermore, Superclouds create opportunities to exploit resource management techniques that providers do not expose, like resource oversubscription, and ultimately can reduce costs for users.
