+ - Expert says most "don't get" WebAppSec problem->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Apparently, most people don't get the actual "problem" that web app security is trying to solve. Rafal Los, who works for HP, thinks he has identified the misunderstanding and writes about it in his blog. If you have an interest in security, web applications, or "the problem" this is a must read."

Can't believe nobody has mentioned Indivo yet.

"Indivo is the original personally controlled health record (PCHR) system. A PCHR enables an individual to own and manage a complete, secure, digital copy of her health and wellness information. Indivo integrates health information across sites of care and over time. Indivo is free and open-source, uses open, unencumbered standards, and is actively deployed in diverse settings, in particular our own Children's Hospital Boston and the Dossia Consortium."

Marketing Linux has always been a tricky proposition. As a community, we have relied on corporations who have a stake in the Linux operating system to market Linux to the world at large. Today, we have an opportunity to change that, and make Linux marketing as much a community effort as Linux development. That effort begins with the Tux 500 project. Our goal is simple: we want to collect community donations to enter a Linux sponsored car in the 2007 Indianapolis 500. We need your help! If less than 1% of the Linux community donates $1, this will happen... will you do your part?

+ - Curt Schilling Seeks Funding for Game Company

stoolpigeon writes "alarm:clock has a story about Major League Pitcher Curt Schilling's game company 38 Studios and their attempt to get $48 Million in VC funding. The article states, "...if successful, a $48M Series A round would be the largest-ever such round funding for a gaming company."

Schilling is well known as an avid gamer, and the games 38 Studios are said to be working on are fantasy games from R.A. Salvatore and Todd MacFarlane."

Nothing in progression can rest on its original plan. We may as well think of rocking a grown man in the cradle of an infant. -- Edmund Burke
