Roll Your Own YouTube/Flickr with MediaGoblin
Everyone has wasted an afternoon on YouTube clicking through videos of talking cats, screaming goats and bad-lip-reading renditions of popular movies. Heck, there are plenty of YouTube videos of me doing odd and silly things as well. (Does anyone remember 'Buntu Family Theater?) For important family videos, however, I much prefer to control my own data. I've tried over the years to keep an archive of home movies and such in a folder on a server somewhere, but they never get seen because getting to them in inconvenient. That's where MediaGoblin comes in.

MediaGoblin is an open-source Web-based application that allows you to host audio, video and photographic media on your own server. It still allows that media to be easily viewed via the Web, however, so you get the convenience of YouTube with the security of hosting files yourself.
Hosting your own local version of YouTube might not be your cup of tea, but for me, it's a great compromise between convenience and data privacy. If you want to give MediaGoblin a try, head over to http://www.mediagoblin.org and download a copy today. Or, check out one of the many publicly hosted installations to see if you like the interface.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
