It was 2003 when I got into Open Source, back in the Canary Islands. It was also back then when I made the transition from "on site" to fully distributed kind of culture at a professional level, managing remote teams and customers relations. I learnt most of the basic skills that I have developed later on back then, working on the Canary Islands.

I will summarize some of that experience in a talk to promote that other entrepreneurs from the Islands, like I was back then, embrace distributed environments as a way to internationalize their activity outperforming other Spanish software companies that has a traditional "on site" culture. I like to call that process "sublimation", in contrast with the typical path of going "single site" -> "multi site" -> distributed.

Is there out there a good book about this topic? The ones that I have found are focused on multi site environments, not in fully distributed ones. I would appreciate any help here.

Today, 10 years ago, the European parliament rejected the Software Patent directive. http://06072005.eu/software-patents-directive

On July 6th, 2005, the proposal was finally rejected by an overwhelming majority of 648 votes vs 14 and Michel Rocard commented :

"There is a collective and unanimous anger on the part of the entire Parliament at the unacceptable way it has been treated by the Commission and the Council. A total and cynical contempt for the choices made by Parliament at first reading. A total absence of any consultation by the Commission in drafting the text for the second reading. Repeated attempts even to stop discussions between Governments within the Council itself. As a matter of principle, this is scandalous enough. The crisis in Europe today has a lot to do with the deficit of democracy, an area where the Council has an overwhelming responsibility, as it has proved amply on this issue. Let us hope that this rejection is a lesson to it ! "
Whereas the development of the digital industry raised the issue of software legal protection, it did not take much time for most of national lawmakers to agree on the fact that due to software original nature, ie. a set of instructions presented just as a musical partition, copyright was the ...

#OP-TEE is a game changer. Having a generic TEE kernel driver is a killer step. Congrats to the Security WG at #Linaro  
 
 It’s been a long journey for the TEE driver that now has been submitted to LKML. To read more about it, check out this post...https://www.linaro.org/blog/evolution-of-a-generic-tee-kernel-driver/

Interesting. Good luck
 
Guess who's getting into the mobile software space with Samsung? That would be Red Hat.
Red Hat has long been a power in Linux servers. Now, with a new software stack and a partnership with Samsung, the Linux giant is going for mobile business users.
