+ - Firefox release a new version with adblock enabled by default->

Ploum writes "Ok, the title of this story is a fiction and there are no indication that it could become a reality. Nevertheless, what would happen if Firefox enabled Adblock by default? After all, Adblock is a widely available technology, very popular among power users. It would be a natural evolution to make it accessible for casual users. But wouldn't that change the web completely? How would the Mountain View search engine react? Let's find out"

+ - Towel Day this Friday May 25th

Submitted by
Ploum
Ploum writes "Like each year, May 25th is the Towel Day ! Carry your towel everywhere with you to show the world that you are a true galactic hitchhiker. If someone ask you why you are carrying a towel, just reply that it might be useful if you encounter a Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. The Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal is a creature that will eat anything. If you are to encounter one you should wrap a towel around your head. This creature is so mind-bogglingly stupid that it assumes that if you can't see it, then it can't see you.

In any case, DON'T PANIC !"

+ - 2nd Open Discussion Day this May 19th

Submitted by
Ploum
Ploum writes "Like announced by Peter Saint-Andre, president of the Jabber Software Fundation, May 19th will be the 2nd Open Discussion Day. For one day, participants will use only open protocols (like SIP, Jabber, Google Talk) and refuse to send or receive files in a closed format.

Warn your contacts on your closed networks or, better, help them to create a open account on an open network and enjoy the openness.

The first Open Discussion Day was held in 2006 and was a success. Popular Jabber servers like amessage.de or fritalk.com closed their MSN/ICQ/AOL gateways for one day. The announcement was translated in more than 10 languages and it was reported that a lot of users definitively dropped MSN/ICQ/AOL to use Jabber."
