Four short links: 8 September 2010

  1. Alpha Draft of Mozilla Public License v2 Out -- The highlight of this release is new patent language, modeled on Apache’s. We believe that this language should give better protection to MPL-using communities, make it possible for MPL-licensed projects to use Apache code, and be simpler to understand.

  2. Challenge.gov -- contest-like environment for solving problems. Not all are glowing examples of government innovation: $12,000 for healthy recipes for kids--this is not a previously-unsolved problem. More relevant: NASA Centennial Challenge to build an aircraft that can fly 200 miles in less than two hours using the energy equivalent of less than 1 gallon of gas per occupant.

  3. A Virtual Counter-Revolution (The Economist) -- It is still too early to say that the internet has fragmented into "internets", but there is a danger that it may splinter along geographical and commercial boundaries. (via mgeist on Twitter)
  4. Selectricity -- open source system to run online votes, from Benjamin Mako Hill.
