It's a great time to be a Linux geek. Especially if you are considering a new career.

Migrating from apps to open data services will be the most important evolution in computing in the next 20 years, and +google, +microsoft and +apple are very against this. Watch the Ted Talk, and realize why open data services are so important. 

https://www.ted.com/talks/ben_wellington_how_we_found_the_worst_place_to_park_in_new_york_city_using_big_data
City agencies have access to a wealth of data and statistics reflecting every part of urban life. But as data analyst Ben Wellington suggests in this entertaining talk, sometimes they just don't know what to do with it. He shows how a combination of unexpected questions and smart data crunching can produce strangely useful insights, and shares tips on how to release large sets of data so that anyone can use them.

Google open sources a MapReduce framework for C/C++
Google announced on Wednesday that the company is open sourcing a MapReduce framework that will let users run native C and C++ code in their Hadoop environments. Depending on how much traction MapReduce for C, or MR4C, gets and by whom, it could turn out to be a pretty big deal. Hadoop is famously, or…

Imagine never having to reboot your computer again.
 
Here's what you need to know about Linux kernel live patching!
Live patching is the hottest trend when we’re talking about Linux kernel-based operating systems. It was created by SUSE, based on KGraft, and distributed in the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distribution at the end of 2014. Everyone knows that Linux systems don’t require a reboot every time some packages have been updated, except for the kernel. Well, this is not the case anymore with live patching.

picoPSUs (http://linitx.com/product/minibox-12v-160w-picopsu160xt/12914) are also soundless, but probably not so suited for a gaming PC, they are capped at 160 W, I think. :D

A C API project will be published soon. Any comment is appreciated.
UJO Extensible Binary Object Notation is intended for use as data exchange format through network connections and to store data in files. The name UJO is Esperanto and means container. This text describes the UJO format. It defines how data is stored in a sequence of octets.

That makes sense. I've never been introduced to this sort of thing. Seems like its been right under my nose but I've been busy with other forms of scripting/coding.

toNux Gix

This is screen-captured video from our greatest project - 'Nux' 3d-enviro. We - 'tonux.gix' are just few creative individuals and we make this in some chaotic way, some different way from 'start/finish and forget', and that's why it's still in the beginning stage. Sooner or later we'll probably share all the sources as a public domain. But at the current point we want to finish some things here. Besides other things we have some problems too - especially with files structure.

Last time lots of wonderful open-source game engines appeared, but we don't have enough time to test our scenes with them because 3d-mesh, textures, animation - all this takes a lot of time. Also, we consider ourselves rather artists than programmers. It's more interesting for us to experiment with 3d-shape for example... Well, and of course it's funny to play with all this when it interacts. Generally we test everything with blender game engine.

We make everything here from scratch, even this video and soundtrack. The consequence is that everything is moving slowly - tests with various engines aren't gonna take place soon. That's why we want to share our scenes. Maybe someone else would like to test these scenes with some platform.

If to talk about 3d, there still are no that much universal file formats like for example *.jpg or *.png for pixmaps. There are some more distributed or less distributed ones, but no one of them is dominant - 3d matter is developing really dinamically right now. I think that in next few years some stable solutions will appear for 3d-mesh, bones and physics, because demand in it grows more and more.

Perhaps even 3d-environments and what is called today augmented reality will start to replace 2d intarfaces. I hope it will be powered by open-source software like most of sites and servers today.

We used only FLOSS (free/libre/open-source software) for this project and we had lots of fun with it. I don't mean anything bad about proprietary software. It is still quite productive, as the conventional world in general. We have water, electricity in our houses. But FLOSS is something special: just like the most elite models of Porsche or Lamborghini, it has no redundant parts;) just like these cars FLOSS gives the feeling of drive and comfort in the same time. You have more freedom but with more freedom you get more risks. "Driving" FLOSS requires more attention and control but it gives more satisfaction.

We were enjoying it for almost 10 years, since the very beginning of our NUX-project. Now we want to say "Thank you" to all the people who create FLOSS. Of course we have to begin with RMS and Linus, as well as all the developers of Gnu/Linux and its distributions.

All you see on this video was created from scratch: 3d work was done in Blender; Gimp, Inkscape and (in past) Sodipodi were used to create textures, and the video was edited in Kdenlive and Cinelerra. Soundtrack was produced using Ardour, Muse-sequencer, Audacity, PureData, Psycle Modular, ZynAddSubFX, Deicsonze, LMMS etc.

There are many other people we'd like to thank: the developers of KDE, Gnome, XFCE and other useful tools and desktop environments, as well as all the developers of these wonderful plugins and little programs, for instance sound or visual synthesizers like Calf or Mandelbulber and many many others.

Our applause to these awesome people!

Hello OSS Community, I would like to ask for your help.

I'm looking for a Q&A (Questions&Answers) platform to deploy on a private environmenta. 
These are the requirements: free+open-source (😛) and provides OAuth 1 for authentication/authorization (not for Twitter/LinkedIn but for my own OAuth server).

Any suggestions?

PS: I have already tried OSQA (but those ~5 years without updates and they do not support OAuth)
