Submission + - Videoconferencing server for Linux ?

Hymer writes: Well it is really a simple question: Does anyone here know a vidoconferencing server for Linux ? It may be a non-standard solution but the clients have to exist for at least Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. The communication channel should preferably encrypted. I need video and some kind of common workplace or desktop sharing, audio is optional. I've searched the Net and found nothing... geeks do not need to look at other geeks to understand eachother but CEO's obviously does... ;-)

Submission + - Google Launches Patent Search Site

eldavojohn writes: "Google has launched a a search site for patents today. The FAQ explains how it works: "Using the same technology that powers Google Book Search, Google has converted the entire image database of U.S. patents into a format that's easy to search. You can search the full text of U.S. patents from the Google Patent Search homepage, or visit the Advanced Patent Search page to search by criteria like patent number, inventor, and filing date." Perhaps the jobs of patent lawyers and intellectual property search will be getting easier."
