Four short links: 12 May 2010

  1. The Ten Commandments of Rock and Roll (BoingBoing) -- ten rules that should be posted in every workplace as a guide to how to fail poisonously.
  2. Snapscouts -- rather creepy sousveillance site. It's up to you to keep America safe! If you see something suspicious, Snap it! If you see someone who doesn't belong, Snap it! Not sure if someone or something is suspicious? Snap it anyway! I like the idea of promoting a shared interest in keeping us all safe, but I'm not sure SnapScouts is there yet.
  3. Etherpad Foundation -- was open-sourced after Google acquired the company that offered it, has now acquired a life-after-death. Compare with the updated Google document editor which has a wordprocessing layout engine built in Javascript, and uses the algorithms behind Etherpad to offer simultaneous editing. (via Hacker News)
  4. Diaspora Kickstarter Project -- team looking for seed funding to write an aGPLed "privacy aware, personally controlled, do-it-all distributed open source social network" (no news of dessert topping or floor wax applicability). Received 2.5x their requested funding in a few days.
