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
