Drizzle, Licensing, Having Honest Conversations with your Community

,----[ Quote ]
| I pulled this from a quote on yesterday's 
| Slashdot story about MySQL Licensing where 
| the author of the quote mentions Drizzle's 
| licensing terms:
| "you require the code to be under BSD"
| This is actually a myth, we don't.
| If you look through the Drizzle codebase 
| you will note that very few files have BSD 
| headers, and all that do?


NoSQL conference coming to Boston

,----[ Quote ]
| On March 11 Boston will join several other 
| cities who have host conferences on the 
| movement broadly known as NoSQL. 
| Cassandra, CouchDB, HBase, HypergraphDB, 
| Hypertable, Memcached, MongoDB, Neo4j, 
| Riak, SimpleDB, Voldemort, and probably 
| other projects as well will be represented 
| at the one-day affair. 
| [...]
| The resilience of open source
| One question that intrigues me is why all 
| the offerings in the NoSQL area are open 
| source. Some have commercial add-ons, but 
| the core technology is provided as free 
| software. The few proprietary products and 
| services in the market (such as 
| Citrusleaf) get far less attention.


Twitter growth prompts switch from MySQL to 'NoSQL' database

,----[ Quote ]
| Ryan King, an engineer at Twitter, today 
| told the blog MyNoSQL that the social 
| networking company plans to move from 
| MySQL to the Cassandra database for what 
| he called its resilience, scalability and 
| large community of open-source developers. 


The lie of the land

,----[ Quote ]
| It's ambitious and time-consuming work to 
| produce free maps of the whole of South 
| Africa, but that is exactly what the 
| OpenStreetMap (OSM) team is doing. Relying 
| on a team of volunteers willing to hit the 
| highways, streets and tracks of the 
| country with their GPSes in their spare 
| time, the OpenStreetMap SA team has now 
| mapped more than 120,000 km of the 
| country's roads. The resulting maps are 
| licenced under a Creative Commons licence 
| so that anyone can use the information.



How To Organize A Mapping Party

,----[ Quote ]
| We had a mapping party at NIT Calicut
| recently. After the first day of the event I
| shared some ideas to make such mapping
| parties better with GeoHackers team.
| [...]
| Maps are created at this stage. The data we
| have mined are ordered, analyzed, and
| tagged. We need to make sure that all the
| team follows a naming convention or comment.
| The coordinator should watch for over
| marking / mis-marking of the same location.
| Once the data is properly tagged, it is time
| to upload it to the OSM server.
