Reddit Opens Up
The popular social bookmarking site Reddit announced yesterday that their code would now be open and free for scrutiny and contribution from the community. Citing transparency and giving back to the community that has given them the tools to build Reddit, they encourage users to visit http://code.reddit.com and participate.
A video announcement by their mascot explains the move.
A lot of readers visit us from Reddit, and I am curious to know your feelings on this strategy. Will this give them an edge over the competition with users in the tech community? Will you be more likely to use Reddit now that the source is open?
Let us know in the comments.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
