Riot wants to be like Slack, with flexibility of underlying open source platform

In the ‘old days’ there were plenty of messaging apps and aggregators, but they survived in an open source world. Today, business models dictate that platforms like Slack must keep their messages to themselves.
It would be nice if open-source alternatives could bring back the days of flexibility, combined with today’s world of excellent user experience. What if Slack were simply an excellent tool running on an underlying open-source platform? Could it create the same value?
Riot (formerly known as Vector while it was running in Beta) is a new UK-borne app hoping to have a crack at that.
It’s aiming to bring conversations and productivity tools together, across different apps, and providing the ability to tweak and host your own version by being open source, while also being secure. Riot is built on Matrix, an open standard for decentralized persistent communication.
Riot lets teams share data and collaborate on projects across different communication

IBM targets cloud with new Power servers

IBM sold off its x86 server business two years ago to Lenovo, thinking it was exiting a cut-throat, low-margin business. But the cloud has only intensified x86 server chip sales, and IBM is paying attention.
The company is adapting a new range of Power servers — which typically run powerful systems — for the cloud. The Power E870C and E880C servers, announced Monday, are flexible in handling many tasks and can scale for distributed computing and cloud integration.
The new servers, which support Ubuntu Linux and Unix, sound similar to x86 servers powering internal and external clouds at companies like Facebook, Microsoft, and Amazon. But IBM is packing in an extra set of features to make these systems reliable and flexible for public and private clouds.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Twitter’s new, ‘simpler’ rules for character counts in tweets go live

Did you hear? Twitter would like you to know that its service is now easier to use, thanks to a series of rule revisions announced in May, which have just gone live. Starting today, Twitter is cutting down on what counts towards your 140 characters. As a refresher, that means media content like photos, videos, GIFs, polls and Quote Tweets no longer eat into your character count. Links still do, however.
As you may recall, Twitter first announced all these changes earlier this year, but delayed their rollout to give the developer community time to adapt.
Along with changing what counts towards the 140 characters, Twitter also announced other tweaks at the same time – like ditching the “.@” format, for example. This convention came about when people wanted to send tweets that began with an “@username” to their entire audience. Something of a user-generated hack, the period “.” circumvented Twitter’s restrictions on which tweets appear in

Show HN: Paperbin – Note Taking and Bookmarking and Read Later (online, Mobi, Epub)

Why save bookmarks online?

Sure you can sort by folders and tags, but that’s about it.

Search
Paperbin’s search bar makes it easy to run complex queries using simple text commands, much like Google.

Filter

Using Paperbin, you can find find links by searching keywords related to the content of the web page, in addition to the title, description, folder, tags, and even the root domain name.
