[News] Free Software Korean Contest Launched

Hash: SHA1

Korean OSS Contest Opens Doors to Worldwide Developers 

,----[ Quote ]
| The deadline is fast approaching for open source developers to participate in 
| Open Source Software Challenge 2009 contest, hosted by the Ministry of 
| Knowledge Economy of South Korea.  
| Until August 30, students and any other developer who wants to participate, 
| can register for the Challenge, which is aimed at giving international 
| competitors a chance to contribute to projects from around the world, 
| fostering information exchange and the growth of a network of worldwide open 
| source developers.     



South Korea Bans Anonymous Posting On Popular Websites

,----[ Quote ]
| In response, Korea has now passed a law that requires anyone posting on a
| site that has over 100,000 unique visitors a day to reveal their real names
| and national ID (found via Michael Scott). This seems quite extreme. There
| are certainly pros and cons to allowing anonymous speech, but it seems to go
| overboard to outlaw it completely on any relatively popular site.


The World Wins South Korea for Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| And if you're wondering why it matters anyway that the South Koreans should
| be able to use Firefox and other "non-standard" browsers - don't you just
| love that description? - it's because the country's users have some of the
| fastest broadband connections in the world; that means that new applications
| based on such connectivity may well emerge there first, so it's important
| that open source be available and viable for all kinds of uses.
