Atlassian sells Jitsi, an open-source videoconferencing tool it acquired in 2015, to 8×8

After announcing earlier this year that it planned to shut down HipChat and Stride and sell the IP of both to Slack, today enterprise software company Atlassian made another move related to its retreat from enterprise chat. It is selling Jitsi, a popular open-source chat and videoconferencing tool, to 8X8, a provider of cloud-based business phone and internal communications services. 8X8 says it plans to integrate Jitsi with its current conferencing solutions, specifically a product called 8X8 Meetings, and to keep it open source.
Terms of this latest sale to 8×8 have not been disclosed. Both the tech and the engineering team working on Jitsi, led by Emil Ivov, are coming with the acquisition.
Atlassian originally acquired Jitsi and its owner BlueJimp for an undisclosed sum in 2015 with the intention of adding video communications to HipChat, and later Stride (which launched in 2017).
But now those two products are headed for the graveyard

Georgia State and publishers continue legal battle over fair use of course materials

When three publishers sued Georgia State University for sharing excerpts of textbooks with students at no charge 10 years ago, librarians and faculty members took notice.

The lawsuit was a big deal for universities offering “e-reserves” to students — free downloadable course materials that often included scanned pages from print textbooks.

GSU (and many other higher ed institutions) believed that this use of publisher content was within the bounds of “fair use” — a much debated tenet of copyright law. Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and Sage Publications disagreed. The publishers argued that this use of copyrighted materials without a license constituted infringement.

Then the courts went to work. In 2012, U.S. District Judge Orinda Evans sided largely against the publishers. The court ruled that 43 of 48 alleged cases of infringement were fair use — a judgment heralded as a victory for higher education institutions and libraries.

But in 2014, the U.S.

Red Hat takes over IBM

So IBM is buying Red Hat (home of the largest Enterprise Linux distribution) for $34 billion and readers want to know what I think of the deal. Well, if I made a list of acquisitions and things to do to save IBM, buying Red Hat would have been very close to the top of that list. It should have bought Red Hat 10 years ago when the stock market was in the gutter. Jumping the gun a bit, I have to say the bigger question is really which company’s culture will ultimately dominate? I’m hoping it’s Red Hat. The deal… [Continue Reading]

The Linux Kernel Is Now VLA-Free: A Win For Security, Less Overhead and Better For Clang

With the in-development Linux 4.20 kernel, it is now effectively VLA-free. From a report: The variable-length arrays (VLAs) that can be convenient and part of the C99 standard but can have unintended consequences. VLAs allow for array lengths to be determined at run-time rather than compile time. The Linux kernel has long relied upon VLAs in different parts of the kernel — including within structures — but going on for months now (and years if counting the kernel Clang’ing efforts) has been to remove the usage of variable-length arrays within the kernel. The problems with them are: 1. Using variable-length arrays can add some minor run-time overhead to the code due to needing to determine the size of the array at run-time. 2. VLAs within structures is not supported by the LLVM Clang compiler and thus an issue for those wanting to build the kernel outside of GCC, Clang only

Micro.blog

Today’s social networks are broken. Ads are everywhere. Hate and harassment are too common. Fake news spreads unchecked.

There’s a better way: a network of independent microblogs. Short posts like tweets but on your own web site that you control.

Micro.blog is a blog hosting platform with a safe community for microblogs. A timeline to follow friends and discover new posts. Easy posting to your own site.

“Micro.blog is not an alternative silo: instead, it’s what you build when you believe that the web itself is the great social network.” — Brent Simmons

“Micro.blog is a small, friendly community and platform that understands the need for people to own their data but still freely express themselves on the web. A beacon of light in the darkness.” — Adam Procter

HTML Notepad – HTML WYSIWYG editor for the rest of us

It is a WYSIWYG editor of structured documents: texts that have hierarchical and semantically meaningful (oxymoron, no?) structure: headers, list, plaintext islands, tables and so on.

HTML-NOTEPAD is not a “web page editor”. Don’t even expect to create “cool web pages” with it.  With modern CSS, WYSIWYG Web design is simply impossible. Web pages are crafted manually by editing CSS, that is by nature of CSS.
But still HTML-NOTEPAD can be useful for Web designers too – for the cases when we need to create textual (yet structural) content of our pages. This very article I am editing in HTML-NOTEPAD:

HTML-NOTEPAD uses Sciter Engine for its UI. That means it is small, fast, does not have external dependencies and works on all major desktop operating systems: Windows (from XP to 10), Mac OS and Linux.
And exactly in the same way:

Yet HTML-NOTEPAD supports “day” and “night” editing modes:

To support keys-only editing as much as possible:
All frequent
