The November issue of BSD Magazine is out. No DragonFly content again, in part because I wasn’t even sure when the deadline was. (The editor changed.)
The Technology Innovation Management Review (used to be the Open Source Business Resource) has its second issue out since the rename. There’s still plenty of open-source focus in there.
Have you noticed how what was nerd culture 20 years ago has become mainstream? In the same way, open source is becoming a given assumption, rather than a niche to follow on its own.
It’s out, titled “The Inevitability of IPv6″, and featuring an article by yours truly on the upcoming DragonFly release. (I thought it was already published? I’m not sure.)
Technology Innovation Management Review, the replacement for the Open Source Business Resource, has its first issue out. There’s still an open source focus, despite the name change.
The Open Source Business Resource, linked here before, has become the Technology Innovation Management Review, or TIM Review. Conveniently, the editor is named Chris, not Tim, so nobody will get confused. It’ll still cover open-source software, but it’ll also
“share the spotlight with topics such as managing innovation, technology entrepreneurship, and economic development”
The first relaunched issue will be out in October.
BSD Magazine’s September issue is out. This time, I have an article in it about data recovery with Hammer:
We’ve all experienced instant regret. That’s the feeling that comes within a second of executing a command like “rm -rf * .txt” (note the space) or of cutting the wrong cluster of wires at the end of a long conduit. Not that I am quoting from experience, or anything like that, no…
I’m a bit slow in reporting this, but: BSD Magazine for August is out in free PDF form. The theme article is memory file systems, but there’s all sorts of stuff, including an article from me talking about how I set up bulk builds of pkgsrc.
The August issue of the Open Source Business Resource magazine is out, talking about starting open-source based businesses. It also announces a name change, to “Technology Innovation Management Review”. The reason, according to the editor, is that the original purpose of the magazine was to explain how you could make money creating or using open source software. People seem to have figured that out now…
The question now is how do you make your (probably open source using) business grow. I totally believe that now based on the number of businesses that have sprung up based around open source software; it used to be much harder to find a commercial backer for a project that let you see the source code. Now, it’s practically commonplace. (examples added off the top of my head.)
BSDTalk 207 is 15 minutes of conversation with Mohammed Farrag about ArabBSD. It’s good to see open source being supported in a part of the world I daresay has been underserved. This is the Internet, so I say that without supporting evidence, of course.
(I have a lot of catching up to do; more posts soon.)
The July issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, and the theme is Women Entrepreneurs. Next month’s issue is unthemed, so here’s a good time to write about open source and get published.
The July issue of BSD Magazine is out. The putative theme is “BSD Security”, but there also happens to be an article featuring Hammer deduplication on real-world data, by yours truly.
The Open Source Business Resource magazine is going with a rare unthemed issue in August. So, this is your chance to get published on your own specific business/open source topic! Articles are due by July 10th.
The newest issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with this being a second issue on Technology Entrepreneurship.
The June issue of BSD Magazine is out, with the title being “NanoBSD and Alix”, but there’s plenty more articles in there. DragonFly news is on page 25 – if this month is better for me than last month, I hope to have more in there.
Fresh from BSDCan 2011, an interview with Ingo Schwartze and Kristaps Dzonsons, mostly about mdocml. (Which is already present in DragonFly.)
The May issue of BSD Magazine is out. The cover says “Embedded FreeBSD” as a continuation of last month’s theme, but there’s really a wide mix in there. Of course, there’s a DragonFly news section from me, talking about 2.10. I’ll point at the zsh article that opens the magazine, since every zsh user I’ve met talks about zsh rapturously. Also, the iXSystems ad on page 2 has a rather fun illustration…
The May 2011 issue of the Open Source Business Resource is “Technology Entrepreneurship“. You’ll want to read this because it’s all people who are their own boss, using software they can modify themselves. Seductively nerdy/utopian! They’re continuing the topic for next month’s issue, so if that describes you and you like writing, here’s your chance.
The April issue of BSD Magazine is out! It’s a very full issue, including another news roundup by yours truly.
Google Search turned up something new: Daemon & Penguin oggcast. It’s a podcast, with every episode covering something Unix-ish – usually BSD. Each episode also reviews a horror movie. It’s not a mix I would have predicted, but I can see how it would work. The first oggcast has him installing DragonFly.
This month’s issue of BSD Magazine is titled “The Wonders of Blender”, but there’s a lot more articles in there with other topics. There’s a two-page spread of DragonFly news that may look familiar to readers of this site…
“Co-Creation” is the theme of this month’s Open Source Business Resource, and appropriately enough, it has two editors. This issue has perhaps the most umlauts ever.
February’s BSD Magazine is headlining “ZFS on FreeBSD”, along with a bunch of other material, including an interview/example for the next BSDCan convention. There’s some BSD-project-specific news in there from this site about DragonFly, along with MirOS, MidnightBSD, and FreeBSD.
The January issue of the Open Source Business Resource is titled “The Business of Open Source”. The first article, titled “Cost Optimization Through Open Source Software“, explains why iXSystems is all BSD, all the time. There’s also an eye-opening breakdown of the dramatic cost savings from going with open-source rather than Windows.
Another day, another BSDTalk item: this time it’s 15 minutes with Matthew Dillon at MeetBSD, talking about the 2.8 release. It was recorded either today or yesterday – quite fresh.
Matthew happens to mention that experimental deduplication support will arrive next week in Hammer.
The November issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with the theme of “Economic Development.” I like the microcredit article, but perhaps that’s just my special interest.
The December issue’s theme is “Humanitarian Open Source” and the guest editor will be Leslie Hawthorn. She’s currently Open Source Outreach Manager at Oregon State University Open Source Lab, but some may remember her as the face of Google Summer of Code for the past several years.
The newest issue of BSD Magazine is all about VPNs and BSD. It’s free to read in PDF form.
The almost-to-200 expisode of BSDTalk has 14 minutes of conversation with John Hixson about PC-Sysinstall and what it could replace.
The October issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with Sales as the theme. The very first article talks about something dangerous: turning open-source users into customers.
BSDTalk has another new episode, (197… almost at the 2-century mark!), and it has 37 minutes of conversation with M. Warner Losh about FreeNAS.
Another B-Side show, this time with additional recordings from the pfSense show.
After the BSD Show episode with me talking about DragonFly finished, we continued joking around for a good while; Gamaral of the BSD Show! has edited that together into a “B-side“. Enjoy! By this point, I was relaxed, so I sound better.
I’m on the latest BSD Show! podcast. I haven’t listened to it yet – hope I came through OK.
The September issue of BSD Magazine is about BSD and Linux. It’s a free download!
The September issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with the theme of “Keystone companies”. “Platform base development” may be a clearer if less exact phrase.
BSDTalk has a 19 minute interview with Mike Larkin talking about ACPI and OpenBSD.
The publishers of BSD Magazine are planning to launch a Russian issue in September, but they need more native speakers (and writers, and proofreaders, etc.). firstname.lastname@example.org is the person to contact if you can fit one of those roles.
The August issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with the theme of “Interdisciplinary Lessons”. September’s theme will be “Keystone Companies” and October will be “Sales Strategy”. If you want to contribute to those issues, articles are due by the 15th of the month before.
The August issue of BSD Magazine is ready. It’s titled “BSD as Operating System“, and it’s available for download now.
There’s several publications with new issues out. It’s a long weekend (in the U.S.) so you can catch up on the reading/listening:
BSD Magazine has a new issue out, on OpenBSD. There’s also the happy news that they’ve managed to more than double their circulation.
The July issue of the Open Source Business Resouce is out, with the theme “Go To Market”. Next month is “Interdisciplinary Lessons”, and submissions are due in the next two weeks.
BSDTalk 192 is out with an interview of Colin Percival, the FreeBSD Security Officer. It’s another interview from BSDCan 2010. Colin Percival is also responsible for, among other things, tarsnap.com, which I find interesting because of its clear and modern business model.
There’s a new BSDTalk podcast up, again from BSDCan 2010. This one interviews Henning Brauer and Peter Hansteen about pf, for 20 minutes.
The June issue of BSD Magazine is out, and the theme is: Firewalls.
The latest issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, and it has a number of articles about growth and open source. It’s a mix of “how-to” and “how-we-did” articles.
A new issue of BSD Magazine is out – this issue’s theme is “Embedded BSD“.
The May issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, and the theme is “Communications Enabled Applications”. Sounds obscure, but it’s about deriving a business advantage from networks. In fact, one article directly relates to one of my biggest current projects at work.
The May 2010 issue of BSD Magazine is out, with, among other articles, a writeup by yours truly about using HAMMER to access historical data.
The 4th issue of BSD Magazine is out, with the theme “Hosting BSD“. It’s a free download, and they now have a “questions from users” section that you can write in to.
That was fast – there’s another BSDTalk already! BSDTalk 186 has Jeff Roberson, FreeBSD committer. He’s talking about schedulers and softupdates for a good half hour.
The first online-only free version of BSD Magazine is out! It’s good, but there’s no DragonFly, darnit. Anyway, it’s worth reading if for no other reason than it’s in pleasant, colorful PDF format.
James Nixon, iXsystems employee and PC-BSD developer, is interviewed for 16 minutes on BSDTalk 185.
Still not used to typing “2010″.
- I have no idea if bup is a worthwhile backup tool or even if it would compile on DragonFly, but more products should be described this way. (via)
- I’ve seen plenty of articles along the lines of “Open Source and X”, where the article explains at great length how open source in certain situations can work well. “Doing It Wrong” comes at it from a different direction.
- BSD Magaine is going free, meaning it’s a free download starting with the February issue. The site says “sign up for our newsletter and get every issue straight to your inbox” – the correct link is “Newsletter” on the upper right corner of the page. PDFs of the print issues are available too.
- The Open Source Business Resource is now publishing weekly articles in addition to their monthly issue. The inaugural article is “Avatar, Open Source and Humanity 2.0” by Stephen Huddart, and the second is “Do, Delegate, Defer” by the wonderfully-named Emma Jane Hogbin.
- Why you should use OpenGL and not DirectX: linked many places. It’s a good argument, which reminds me… anyone want to work on DRM for DragonFly? It could use some loving.
- A Python script that takes your picture and uploads it every time a merge (in Mercurial) fails. Someone make this work for Git, please. (via)
- Speaking of Git, here’s a way to get auto-complete of git commands and local/remote branches in bash.
- The latest @Play covers the new, developing roguelike Dungeon Crawl, part 1 of many. It’s listed as running on “all the BSDs”, though I don’t see it in pkgsrc. It is playable via telnet to other servers, though.
Why, BSDTalk 184 is our very own Matthew Dillon talking about all the recent changes in DragonFly, for a good half-hour! I’ve listened to about half of it so far… I hadn’t realized the significance of some of the changes in the last two releases. It’s also strange to hear someone mentioning the work you’ve done (pkgsrc bulk builds)…
The January issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with the topic being “success factors”. Many of the articles focus on participation, and it’s an interesting read. February’s theme is “Startups”, with articles due by Jan. 20th if you’re contributing one.
If you can produce an article on open source success factors by December 20th, the Open Source Business Resource would like to hear from you. Also, the audio of a recent NYCBUG meeting is available online. Both of those links come from Dru Lavigne’s excellent BSD Twitter feeds. It’s worth watching the BSDEvents one because there’s literally daily BSD-themed events coming up, and she seems to catch every one.
It’s a dry-sounding topic, but the articles are interesting: The December issue of the Open Source Business Resource is now available, with “Value Co-creation” for a theme. I’ll point out “A Social Vision for Value Co-creation in Design“, because it has charts!
