The Immortality of Open Source Projects

,----[ Quote ]
| Think of Sun Microsystems, and what comes to 
| your mind?
| 
| For me? Purple workstations--my first 
| exposure to Sun equipment.
| 
| For others, it might be Solaris. Or Java. 
| There's a host of things Sun was well-known 
| for before it was acquired by Oracle last 
| year and systematically dismantled to fit 
| within the Oracle ecosystem.
| 
| But I'll bet middleware was not one of the 
| things you initially recalled. But it's some 
| of Sun-now-Oracle's cast-off middleware that 
| may prove to be a huge business for a 
| burgeoning new community, led by some former 
| Sun employees.
| 
| The company is ForgeRock, which made a small 
| splash in the open source scene when it 
| started up this February in Norway, led by 
| Lasse Andresen, former Central & Northern 
| Europe CTO at Sun. The ForgeRock team was 
| later joined by Simon Phipps, former Sun 
| Open Source Officer, member of the Open 
| Source Initiative's Board of Directors, and 
| (now) Chief Strategy Officer at ForgeRock.

Seeks delivers new search engine paradigm

,----[ Quote ]
| Google rules the search engine roost today, 
| but upstarts always have their sights (and 
| their sites) set on a share of its success. 
| Seeks, for instance, introduces a new breed 
| of social search engine in which users can 
| collaborate and share their experiences in 
| finding results, instead of keeping that 
| information in the hands of a search engine 
| provider.
