Operation Upgrade A Success Moving students from passive loathing of Windows 7 to active learning on GNU/Linux. If it can happen in a charter school, it can happen anywhere.
A failed Windows laptop program at The Community School of Excellence was turned by the Asian Penguins into a Linux success.

holy acceleration
 
Dramatic advances in laser technologies are enabling novel studies to explore laser-matter interactions at ultrahigh intensity. By focusing high-power laser pulses, electric fields (of orders of magnitude greater than found within atoms) are routinely produced and soon may be sufficiently intense to create matter from light.

Certain anti-solar forces are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to convince everyone (though the popular press and consumers are the main targets) that solar customers are stealing money from non-solar customers.

I don't know this hardware, but it is interesting to see a competition to eliminate non free firmware.
 
+Rackspace have just announced a new OpenPOWER system. Lots of interesting stuff, not the least of which is that it uses OpenBMC, an Open Source BMC stack that our team have been working on.

It also ships with our Open Source firmware, making this one of the most open servers you can buy.

Non free software holds many latent traps. Demand your freedom instead. Boycott non free software.
 
HP recently activated a secret feature in its Officejet Pro printers (and possibly other models) that causes the printers to refuse to print with third-party or recycled ink cartridges. Please join us in demanding that HP say no to DRM.

No, Mr. Trump, the U.S. is not turning over control of the Internet to Russia and China - Michael Hiltzik - Los Angeles Times // “Cruz and Trump are just spouting nonsense,” says Lauren Weinstein, a networking expert who helped develop the ARPANET, the Internet’s predecessor, as a computer science student at UCLA. “A very complicated technical policy problem has been politicized by people who either don’t know what they’re talking about or are purposely misrepresenting the facts.” //
Technologies too complex to be easily understood by the layperson can be playgrounds for unscrupulous politicians. That’s become the case with the Internet’s internal digital plumbing, which has come into the crosshairs of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Donald Trump .

The climate global warming produces is not good for trees either, +Jonathan Ritter. It might be good for jellyfish and bacteria. If enough positive feedback happens, it will trigger a mass extinction on sea and on land not seen for millions of years. When things get hot enough, bacteria in the ocean make toxic sulfur compounds and gasses that can kill off everything else.

Why Lenovo is a Microsoft Flunky Do you really believe the gnu/linux lockout was an accident? Nope, it's the result of a decade of judicial extortion by a coercive monopolist. This is why we can't have nice things and the PC market is in the toilet. See also,

This morning's reminder that Nadella is just another Ballmer (with a different face); Motorola and Lenovo surrender to Microsoft's patent demands and will soon put Microsoft spyware/malware on their Linux-powered products to avert costly legal battles

*A Good Place for Routine and Performance Service* I bought parts and used computers for gnu/linux boxes here five years ago. It's a great place for computer repair, parts. The owner is friendly, low key, and knows what he's doing. Most customers seemed satisfied. The shop also looked like a good place to build a gaming/media rig. It was filled with exotic motherboards, graphics cards, sound systems, etc. The owner is a gamer himself. The owner is a treasure. I would give the place five stars if it were not for tobacco use which may put people off when they walk in. Don't let it. The owner managed to keep the systems clean by walking outside to smoke.
