WorldWatch Week in Review
This week in WorldWatch.LinuxGazette, the most popular article was about how an employee lost his job for writing a paper that warned "Microsoft's dominance of desktop computer operating systems poses a national security threat". The second most popular article, also from the US and also about security, was about how to hack Cisco routers. We also posted links and abstracts for seven new white papers from MIT's FLOSS site.
From Germany, we had an announcement from the UN that acknowledges FLOSS is a human resource worth protecting. From Spain we had a publicity piece from El Mundo that will bring FLOSS into more peoples' sphere of awareness. I also reviewed Irdial~Discs, a Free Music site that I found quite by accident.
On a personal note, I think I have given enough bribes that I actually may get an ISDN line installed next week. This will be wonderful, as my current connection speed (measured this morning at 14.4 Kb/second) makes doing the research for WorldWatch.LinuxGazette almost painful.
