A Manifesto for Free Appliances

The Free Appliances project has issued a manifesto for free Appliances. "Just as there is a need for Free Software, there is a need for free (as in speech) appliances. Free Appliances can be modified or enhanced using GNU/Linux tools or other Open Source Software, preferably licensed as GPLv3. They have no binaries without source code. They adhere to generally accepted standards as much as possible. Their documentation is open. They favor open file formats since information in open file formats should not require DRM. They do not use proprietary components when there are generic ones widely available. (For example: batteries should be replaceable.)"

Upcoming Events

KOffice / KDE ODF Infrastructure Meeting (KDE.News)

KDE.News has announced an upcoming KOffice / KDE ODF infrastructure meeting. "KOffice, the KDE office suite, has always stood behind the OpenDocument Format (ODF) as an industry standard. Now with KOffice 2.0 around the corner, with OpenOffice.org quickly becoming a new leader, and with Microsoft to release its own so-called "open" format, ODF and the interoperability that it promises is more important than ever.

Cryptome site shut down

Cryptome.org has long been a place to find information which has been suppressed elsewhere. Now, it seems, Cryptome has been shut down by its ISP, Verio, which has provided not solid reasons for the disconnection. The shutdown notice can still be found in Google's cache, for now.
