I'm running a matching challenge for The Ada Initiative's 2014 fundraiser. If you donate now, I'll match your donations up to $4,096. Please join me in supporting women's participation in open technology and culture!
When I first read that Linux kernel developer Valerie Aurora would be changing careers to work full-time on behalf of women in open source communities, I never imagined it would lead so far so fast...

As the Ex reports, reports of hate crimes against LGBTQ people have increased from 129 in 2009 to 213 in 2010, a 65% increase.

it could be linked with the economy: violent crime, and hate crime in particular, tends to increase in poor economic times. 'tis scary either way :(

With dotcom valuations rising by the minute, the question of "when to sell" is becoming more and more important. A lot of people tell me I was smart to sell MySpace to Newscorp in July 2005 (it went for $580 million), because it recently RE-sold for $35 million (Go Specific/JT!). It'd be nice for me to take credit for that decision, but it was not my decision to sell MySpace (our parent company had control and made that decision themselves). Personally I can't complain -- I made far more money than anyone would ever need, had the time of my life, and was lucky in so many ways. But the truth is that if MySpace had waited a year or two, it clearly would have gone for single figure billions. What's more, If it hadn't sold at all, we wouldn't have been forced to monetize in a way that was against our longterm interests. Think of all the value Zuck has built by staying in control for so long and for refusing to go public. Also I get the impression that he doesn't care in the slightest how the market values his work. He's on a personal mission to improve the world, and I'm glad he is. In any case, very difficult decisions ahead for VCs, entrepreneurs and stock market investors. I'm just hoping this doesn't end like 2000 again. The desire to make a buck does help fuel innovation, but it can also wipe out people's nesteggs if they get too greedy. Comic by +Zirta Net

A great share. Thanks. It always puzzled me why Myspace seemed so static. Personally, I found the place boring and full of ads. The only cool thing was the contact with music band members that I found quite neat. Other than that.. meh.

My employer is matching donations to the Ada Initiative for a short time (remainder measured in hours). Now's your chance to double the impact of your donation!

My first thought when I read this was, "people still write code in Ada??" Then I read the link summary...

Think you've seen the limit at Fox News? Think again.

Yeah, Fox News and other News Corp. properties are bad, really bad. But The Washington Post and other mainstream American newspapers are pretty shitty too. Journalism is struggling in the age of the Internet.

Can't wait to go to work Monday morning and get cracking on this problem. :-)
How do you create content on the web? Perhaps you upload a photo album to Facebook or write a blog post on Blogspot. That content is your data, right? Kind of. The problem is, the content ...
