Links for the end of May
- Fascinating article about the follow-up of the Google-Oracle lawsuit; of course, it’s worth pointing out that despite all the FUD, the “patent case” itself is over.
- In a different style and on a different topic, yet still belonging to the FOSS/Legal discussion, here are Richard Fontana’s latest presentation slides, specifically about the GPL and the AL popularity. My take? As Richard wrote in these slides, what really matters is how a project is run and how its history and roots influence the type of community contributing to it. Any religious argument in this field tends to be ultimately misleading.

Basically someone essentially designed a WordPress theme in such a way anyone can start a nifty social exprerience in a river-like fashion, and turns its Worpress blog into a hybrid between Reddit and a microblogging site like Twitter. Something to watch for sure.
- Amidst the ever-continuing financial turmoil in Europe, High Commissioner Neelie Kroes launches a social web platform, “the Digital Agenda Assembly“, and lets you start an interesting conversation. Which prompts me to point out one heck of an important question asked by André Rebentisch: isn’t the “multi-stakeholderism” the fundamental problem of the European Institutions?
