Submitted by ArrayIndexOutOfBound
ArrayIndexOutOfBound (694797) writes "On September 18, Digia has completed the acquisition of the Qt Framework. The venerable open source C++ framework underpinning KDE and countless other projects, now has a brighter future than was likely under Nokia's ownership. "Digia now becomes responsible for Qt activities including product development and commercial and open source licensing, the acquisition paves the way for Qt to become the world’s leading cross-platform application development framework across desktop, embedded and mobile platforms." They seem to have some mess to sort out first."

ArrayIndexOutOfBound writes "physorg.com has an article about Carolyn Doran, COO of Wikimedia. "Before she left [Wikimedia] in July, Carolyn Bothwell Doran, 45, had moved up from a part-time bookkeeper for the Wikimedia Foundation and spent six months as chief operating officer, responsible for personnel and financial management. At the time, she was on probation for a 2004 hit-and-run accident in Virginia that had landed her seven months in prison. Doran had multiple drunken-driving convictions, and records show earlier run-ins for theft, writing bad checks and wounding her boyfriend with a gunshot to the chest.""
