[$] Eben Moglen returns to LCA

Linux Weekly News - cs, 2015-01-15 22:08
One of the defining moments of LCA 2005 was Eben Moglen's keynote, which was mostly focused on the dangers that software patents presented to our community. Ten years later, Eben returned to LCA for another keynote address. While he had some things to say about software patents, it is clear that Eben thinks that the largest threats to our community — and our freedom in general — come from elsewhere.

Varda: Sandstorm raises $1.3M seed; paying forward crowdfunds

Linux Weekly News - cs, 2015-01-15 20:48
On the Sandstorm blog, co-founder and CEO Kenton Varda gives an update on the funding and plans for the company behind the open-source Sandstorm personal cloud platform. We looked at the project back in June. "In fact, we are now arguably more aligned with the community than before. Whereas previously there had been a lot of pressure on us to focus on our subscription-based managed hosting option as a way to get revenue, our immediate goal now is just to develop and prove the platform. That means that self-hosted users are just as important to us as paying subscribers. To that end, the first thing we have done with our new money is to hire Asheesh Laroia, a long-time self-hosting and Free Software enthusiast, whose main focus will be improving Sandstorm’s self-hosting experience. To be clear, everything you need to run your own Sandstorm server will always be free and open source, still developed in the open."
