The Power of Open Source

By | November 1, 2017

In this day and age, collaboration is in large one of the effects that is most helpful to the internet community. The open ended developer agreement with apple is the greatest thing to happen to the iPhone. The greatest thing about the iPhone many people say is the fact that “there’s an app for everything”. The reason there’s an app for everything? People with a niche to fill or a need to fill can fill it for the people wanting that item because apple allows people to use and see their coding for the iPhone, and write programs that will work with it and utilize its features for the application.

This is a commonplace thing among the nerdier and older users of the internet, in large the users of the open source community pertaining to Linux/Unix. These are operating systems that entirely are open source and people can create them to look and operate however they want. And even after the system is built, the user can then decide what they want it to look like and do within the system itself. It is always open and always changing.

The difference between the Linux world and the app store for the iPhone is the fact that with the iPhone store there is a point in which ownership and claim comes into play. This point is when the maker of the application decided that it is his work that he did personally and he should have credit and/or money for the application. In no way does that usually come into play with the Linux world, but with applications you are free to create a program, but not always to edit one that is already made.

This is a heated topic in the world of computing, music, and otherwise. When and where do you get the rights to what you’re doing? As soon as possible, draw up blueprints, send yourself an email, do something to prove that you DID THIS at a CERTAIN TIME. That is crucial to claiming that it was your idea. It must also have a witness, sometimes certified in nature. Look these things up.

And if your computer is not protected, your wireless not encrypted, people can literally snatch the information out of the air or off of your computer. This could financially ruin you, or destroy the possibility of making money or notoriety off of a program or idea. This happened to the creator of Napster.

If you have any questions, ask the Pros.

      Sleeper movie. A lot of people have never heard of it, but it’s really a time travel original. Gyllenhall is terrific, as are the special effects. Wonder what “they” are warning us about now.

      Time Traveling Movie at its very Best, August 30, 2017

      This is one my all time favorite movie about the time traveling and space time continuum. I am a Whovian! Highly recommended if you are Whovian, too!

      SPOILER ALERT:

      Like the movie Ground Day, a person re-living in a continuously the same time loop every day.

      A the physically injured soldier’s conscious is injected in the digitally recorded time loop (source code) where a bomber was successful in killing a train-load of people. His orders is to determine who the bomber was, and he ordered to prevent the bomb from going off. It is a dramatic and suspenseful theme to this movie compared to Ground Day. The solders will re-live the time loop over many times over until he changes the outcome of the event by prevent the bomb from going off thus change the future.

      Definitely a Keeper in my DVD library.

      Source Code (Blu-ray) Riveting and an ending makes a movie, October 24, 2017

      Riveting and engrossing film. Jake Gyllenhall is excellent in this. I couldn’t wait to see this again and liked it even more the second time – I better understood just what was happening and I was more observant even though I knew the ending, I got a lot more out of the film itself.

      Highly recommended. I’m a cinema buff.
