- The Ubuntu Code of Conduct deserves a lot more attention from those interested in "the ethical use of information" and the like.
- Based on what I'm reading about OLPC hacking in the developing world, Squeak and EToys are getting a lot of use and attention from the target audience. This makes sense. The big problem with Squeak is that it doesn't draw off users prior experience, but in this case, the users won't have much prior experience, and Sugar is no more familiar. Squeak is far more mature, well documented and powerful than Python/Sugar at this point.
- This look at the trend of playing Werewolf/Mafia (via Tim Bray) at open source development sprints/hackathons is fascinating. I haven't experienced this myself, but it makes a lot of sense. If you've got a limited amount of face time with people you work with remotely, figuring out who is best at lying to your face seems like a ruthlessly efficient use of time (although just writing code is still probably the best idea).
- Ms. Frizzle is blogging again from the US (I tuned out her year in Turkey).
