The achronological armageddon has finally come for G+ communities (although you can personally change things back to chronological for yourself for each community you're part of, which I've already done myself now for this one!).

Knowing the stances and judging by past instances I suspect the Luddites will be cynical and glib about this (the actions of the luminaries of copyleft seems to be the one topic you gents can't help but be kneejerk and reflexive about rather than loquacious and thoughtful), but: this recent post by Conservancy seems to me to encapsulate a lot of the nuance and thoughtfulness never ascribed to them on LL.

I look forward to the "yeah, whatever, people should just use permissive licenses" brush-off :P

"It is perhaps some kind of remark on the utter degeneracy of political punditry that actual articles can be successfully published about little more than pundits’ personal struggles to get the in-groups they want to like them to treat them as friends."

In terms of the unfortunate ditching of the TRS headphone jack, alas it isn't just some obscure Chinese manufacturers doing it already . . . it's a formerly-American-now-Chinese manufacturer too: http://www.motorola.ca/products/moto-z

Pro tip: if you're trying to advertise your landscaping business, maybe wait to put the sign up until it's more than just dirt, gravel, and a tarp.

Famed copyright scholar Pam Samuelson has been writing extensively about the case, focusing both on why APIs should not be covered by copyright (and, why basically every other court has agreed) as well as why, even if it is covered, it's fair use. Hell, she even wrote a response to the Hurst piece, explaining why Hurst was wrong. It's weird for Hurst to take a position that actually seems at odds with a huge number of copyright experts, and then state that none would take the position that many did.

"A federal appeals court actually proposed that in some alternate universe, Android launched and told developers to write apps in a language they’d never encountered before."

From an interview with Ivana Trump:

Ivana’s reps called The Post two days after the interview to clarify that Donald was a feminist. Then they called to say he wasn’t. An hour later, they said he was.

Keith Zubot-Gephart commented on a post on Blogger.
The removal of the launcher itself is no big deal, but will there no longer be .desktop files created in ~/.local/share/applications/ for each Chrome app? That'd be quite inconvenient if so.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
