Submission + - SlashcAliister: How HP and open source can save We (infoworld.com)

MikeTheGreat writes: Ian McCallister has another insightful article (print version here), this time discussing how HP has announced their intention to open source the ill-fated WebOS tablet operating system. He brings up some good points about whether HP is simply trying to "offload the cost of developing and maintaining" WebOS, and how committed HP is to ensuring the success of an open source WebOS.

Submission + - Using SlashCode in education?

MikeTheGreat writes: A recent posting to Slashdot got me thinking about technology in the classroom, and reminded me of a question that I've wanted to ask for a while: is anyone using the Slashdot code base (called Slashcode) in an educational setting?
I can see an unmodified local instance being used in much the way that Slashdot is (to publicize & discuss topics, typically news articles), but I'd be even more interested in finding out about people using the underlying technologies (like meta-moderation) with a front-end set up to better allow for discussions of topics that need to be persistent throughout the term.
So — is anyone using Slashcode in education?
