| sourcing the code for its Living Stories 
| project to allow more online news publishers 
| to make use of the platform.

Google's Living Stories to become open source


What it means when open source is no longer the underdog

,----[ Quote ]
| I predict these anti-Google rumblings are 
| going to start hitting open source, too, and 
| soon. There are always dual motives in open 
| source â itâs part of the business world 
| after all. There is an assumption that open 
| source steals jobs, and drives down tech 
| wages, which is growing.



Etherpad source includes JSMin, which Google Code doesn't allow

,----[ Quote ]
| Last week, Google banned my PHP port of JSMin
| from Google Code due to a quibble over a line
| in the license stating that âThe Software
| shall be used for Good, not Evilâ, which they
| believe makes the license non-free. When I
| asked Googleâs Chris DiBona whether all Google
| Code projects including JSMin would be subject
| to bans due to this clause in the license, he
| replied, âSadly, yesâ.
