ISOC-NY Event: Eben Moglen âFreedom in the Cloudâ â 2/5/2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Eben Moglen, Professor of Law and Legal 
| History at Columbia University, and founder, 
| Director-Counsel and Chairman of the Software 
| Freedom Law Center, spoke about âFreedom in 
| the Cloud: Software Freedom, Privacy and 
| Security for Web 2.0 and Cloud Computingâ on 
| Friday, February 5, 2010, 7-9 pm.


Another Kind of Freedom

| It seems as if most people are for OpenSource 
| but against any other form of 
| distribution/development. For example, 
| Microsoft maintains ownership of the software 
| that they sell on store shelves. No one owns a 
| copy of Windows except for Microsoft. Well, 
| good for them, but when Microsoft's products 
| became dominant due to market demand people 
| starting making noise because Microsoft wanted 
| to put their own software on their own 
| software (Internet Explorer on Windows)... so 
| even though it's Microsoft's property on both 
| accounts, they apparently did wrong by 
| bundling the two together? Now, in the realm 
| of current events we are seeing something 
| similar with Google. 



Eucalyptus open-sources the cloud (Q&A)

,----[ Quote ]
| It's reasonably clear that open source is the
| heart of cloud computing, with open-source
| components adding up to equal cloud services
| like Amazon Web Services. What's not yet clear
| is how much the cloud will wear that open
| source on its sleeve, as it were.
| Eucalyptus, an open-source platform that
| implements "infrastructure as a service" (IaaS)
| style cloud computing, aims to take open source
| front and center in the cloud-computing craze.
| The project, founded by academics at the
| University of California at Santa Barbara, is
| now a Benchmark-funded company with an
| ambitious goal: become the universal cloud
| platform that everyone from Amazon to Microsoft
| to Red Hat to VMware ties into.
