 So far, attribution hasn't really been a problem,
 since everyone who contributes is acknowledged  for
 example through the discussions around the code.
 Similarly, preservation is dealt with through the
 tools for source code management and the discussion
 lists. But there are crucial questions of longterm
 preservation  not least for historical purposes 
 which are not really being addressed, even by the
 longestestablished open projects like GNU.

Eigenlabs to open source new music control protocol and API
,[ Quote ]
 Eigenlabs is a startup company founded by John
 Lambert in 2001 and based in Devon UK. In an
 interview on the Create Digital Music blog, Lambert
 said of the Eigenlabs software that it's "written in
 a mixture of C++ and Python. Itâs quite scary code,
 but very clean and pretty, with little âcruftâ. I
 think the open source community are going to have
 fun with it. Its a big system too, 8 years of R&D in
 one huge release. I donât think that thereâs been
 anything quite like this open sourced before in the
 music world â it is a bit as if Logic or Ableton
 were GPLâd tomorrow."

 Or consider SageMath. This is a GPL program that
 aims to replicate pricey programs like Mathematica
 and Matlab, using an interface derived from open
 source Python.

 What this delivers is transparency. Teachers and
 even kids can make additions to SageMath, learning
 Python in the process, and these improvements too
 go into a commons.

 I personally feel it is terrible to *train* students mainly to use closed
 source commercial mathematics software. This is analogous to teaching
 students some weird version of linear algebra or calculus where they have to
 pay a license fee each time they use the fundamental theorem of calculus or
 compute a determinant.

Sage 3.0.2 Review
,[ Quote ]
 To conclude, I'd say that this software is suited to meet numerous needs, and
 not just those related to math and school. It may very well be used, for
 instance, to satisfy one's curiosity regarding a particular aspect, or it
 could be a great help for graphical developers who need a quick look at a
 certain function's 3D plot.

PCLinuxOS Repositories now include SAGE Math

 While SAGE Math is intended for Mathematical, Scientific, and Engineering
 use, I applaud PCLinuxOS for including this important open source software in
 its repositories.

Sage: Insights into open source technology

 SAGE, which stands for Software for Algebra and Geometry Experimentation, is
 basically a free, highlevel calculator.

 Like Firefox is an alternative to Internet explorer and Wikipedia is an
 alternative to Encyclopedia Britannica, SAGE is an alternative to Magma,
 Maple, Mathematica and MATLAB, according to the SAGE Web site.
