This year saw vacancies arising due to the retirement of Board officers -- Karl Fogel, who has done a tremendous job as OSI's Treasurer, and of Martin Michlmayr, whose work as OSI's Secretary has been beyond measure. Also leaving due to term limits is Harshad Gune, and Richard Fontana's seat was open due to the one-year terms for directors representing Individual Members. The Board turned to OSI's growing membership to fill the resulting four vacancies. Three of the…

    Yesterday, the Open Source Initiative, alongside the Free Software Foundation, filed a "friend of the court" brief in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank, a case currently being considered by the United States Supreme Court. (pdf, html) In this case, the Court has asked, in essence, under what conditions (if any) software is "patent-eligible subject matter" under Section 101 of the US patent statute. Drafted by the Software Freedom Law Center, the OSI-FSF brief argues that the "machine or transformation" test is the correct, and exclusive, bright line test for patent eligibility of computer-implemented…

  • Voting Heartburn over “Heartbleed”

    E. John Sebes
    11 Apr 2014 | 9:48 am
    Heartbleed is the latest high-profile consumer Internet security  issue, only a few weeks after the “Goto Fail” incident. Both are recently discovered weaknesses in the way that browsers and Web sites interact. In both cases and others, I’ve seen several comments that connect these security issues with Internet voting. But because Heartbleed is pretty darn wicked, I can’t not share my thoughts on how it connects to the work we do in the TrustTheVote project – despite the fact that i-voting is not part of it. (In fact, we have our hands full fixing the…

You can read riff on it here.) “First, the Heartbleed vulnerability isn’t a virus; you can’t be infected by it. It’s a programming error in one particular part of OpenSSL that was introduced when new functionality was added in late 2011. If the servers you connect to do not use OpenSSL, you’re safe from this. But many very widely used servers do use it, hence the concern. The comment…

    …not much we think. Yesterday’s news of Microsoft co-founder billionaire Paul Allen’s investing $40M in the Spanish election technology company Scytl is validation that elections remain a backwater of innovation in the digital age. But it is not validation that there is a viable commercial market for voting systems of the size typically attracting venture capitalists; the market is dysfunctional and small and governments continue to be without budget. And the challenges of building a user-friendly secure online voting system that simultaneously protects the anonymity of…

    LA County CA is the mother of all election complexities, and the data wrangling was intense, even compared to the hardly simple efforts that I reported on previously. There are over 32,000 distinct voting regions, which I think is more than the number of seats, ridings, chairs, and so on, for every federal or state houses of government in all the parliamentary democracies in the EU. The LA elections team was marvelously helpful, and upfront about the limits of what they can produce with the aging voting system that they are working hard on replacing. This is what we started with. A nicely…

    Libraries of all types have the same questions about open source software that are asked by technologists in other fields. Does open source make sense for me? What open source packages mesh well with the skills already in my organization? Where can I go to get training, documentation, hosting, and/or contract software development for a specific open source package? With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, we set out to build tools that help libraries answer these questions. These questions and answers may be useful to others as well. read more

    I had a period in my life when I was working for different employers like a freelancer developing wordpress plugins, themes enhancements and some integrations. Back then I didn’t realize how much time I was spending in communication with the clients or the middle man (project manager), because, let’s be honest – time is money, right. I didn’t mind to spend 3-4 hours talking to a client about how to make the red button, even more red or why the image is not aligned with the little horse. They would pay me anyway.

    If you have used Hibernate with JPA and using annotation to declare your entity bean then you might have seen this confusing error called "org.hibernate.MappingException: Unknown entity".

    Before going to explain specific difference between FileInputStream and FileReader in Java, I would like to state fundamental difference between an InputStream and a Reader in Java, and when to use InputStream and when to go for Reader. Actually, Both InputStream and Reader are abstractions to read data from source, which can be either file or socket, but main difference between them is, InputStream is used to read binary data, while Reader is used to read text data, precisely Unicode characters. So what is difference between binary and text data? well everything you read is essentially…
  • For Each loop Puzzle in Java

    Javin Paul
    8 Apr 2014 | 11:54 pm
    From Java 5 onwards, we have a for-each loop for iterating over collection and array in Java. For each loop allows you to traverse over collection without keeping track of index like traditional for loop, or calling hasNext() method in while loop using Iterator or ListIterator. For-each loop indeed simplified iteration over any Collection or array in Java, but not every Java programmer is aware of some useful details of for-each loop, which we will see in this tutorial. Unlike other popular items from Java 5 release alias Generics, Autoboxing and variable arguments, Java developers tend to…

    If you are working in Hibernate framework, then you know that one of the key feature of Hibernate is "lazy initialization", which allows framework to lazily initialize dependencies, relationship or association lazily from database on need basis. For example, if you are dealing with User object, which has relationship with Permission object like one user can have multiple permissions, then Hibernate may choose not to initialize the collection which holds all permissions at the time it initialized User object and instead returns a proxy object. At this point, if you close your session…

It also revealed some misconceptions about Open Source software that many people assume are common sense but are not necessarily true. 1) Linus’s Law “Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow” – Eric Raymond Linus’s law claims that given enough users using it and developers reviewing its code, flaws in open-source code will be revealed and eventually fixed, resulting in a more correct and secure code compared to closed / proprietary software.

  • How open, commodity hardware is the next big thing

    Eran Galperin
    9 Apr 2014 | 11:58 am
    In the late 90s and early 2000s, the availability and maturity of open and free stack of web technologies greatly reduced the barrier of developing web-based software. Most of today’s big web companies were built on an open stack, including sites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, Twitter and others that created amazing value from open-source technologies. We’re now seeing the same thing happening with hardware – with Open-Source hardware becoming widely available at commodity prices. This change allows for a much greater pace of innovation and iteration in a field that typically required…

    Being a professional is more than being a good craftsman. If there’s one key point you should take away from this article, it’s that perceptions matter, and probably quite a lot more than you think. In one study from the medical field, nurses with white uniforms were rated by adults as more professional. Another demonstrated how even a handshake unconsciously causes people to make personality judgements. Software development is a service, and as service providers it’s important to be mindful of the people we are serving. While you shouldn’t go too far and become…

    A few days ago, Richard Stallman published an article on Wired titled “Why Free Software Is More Important Now Than Ever Before“. He raises some interesting points in his typical high and mighty flair, about how open source (or as he would rather – free software) could help prevent some of the widespread online spying that has been revealed recently. This post spawned multiple online debates, which typically devolved into “free software” vs. “open source” debates, or pro and against Richard Stallman (RMS for short). I think it’s fair to say that…

    It’s 2013 and everyone and their grandma are using software in one form of another. The software market is one of the fastest growing, and appropriately software developers are in hot demand. Or so it would seem. Despite the software industry being a huge market (it is) and the media making a big noise about the lack of programming talent (there isn’t), a lot of good developers are struggling to make a decent living. There are several reasons for that – location (outside of a tech hub), skills (not in the current “hot” list of HR personnel or “trendy” startups), self-promotion…
