SourceForge Lifts the Block: The Power of Negative Publicity

,----[ Quote ]
| I didn't blame SourceForge for this (although 
| plenty of people did). When you get a legal 
| order from an entity that has the right to 
| issue and enforce legal orders, if you are 
| law abiding in your nation of residence, you 
| comply with the order. SourceForge had 
| nothing to gain by "bucking the system" and 
| could ultimately do more harm than good to 
| the open source community by telling the U.S. 
| Government to "go pound sand".



SourceForge Inc changes its name to Geeknet

,----[ Quote ]
| SourceForge Inc. has announced that it has
| officially changed its name to Geeknet.
| According to Scott L. Kauffman, President and
| CEO "Renaming the company Geeknet is the
| latest step in our rapid transformation.â The
| company believes that the new name will be a
| more accurate articulation of its business.
| Kauffman said "With Geeknet as our calling
| card on Madison Avenue, we are now able to
| clearly define the audience we serve and more
| effectively capture the business opportunity
| that we are addressing,â.


SourceForge vs Google App Engine hosting

,----[ Quote ]
| The hosting of BleachBit's web site, bug tracker, and blog has
| bounced between SourceForge, Google's Blogger, Launchpad, Google
| App Engine, and SourceForge again. Certainly there have been some
| lessons learned on the strengths and weaknesses of each hosting
| provider. These may be useful to other open source projects
| choosing a web hostâparticularly for demanding, dynamic sites.
