Twenty Questions, CC Pix, INSERT INTO WEB, and Wash Your Hands!

  1. Twenty Questions about GPLv3 (Jacob Kaplan-Moss) — twenty very challenging questions about the GPLv3. foo.js is a JavaScript library released under the GPLv3. bar.js is a library with all rights reserved. For performance reasons, I would like to minimize all my site’s JavaScript into a single compressed file called foobar.js. If I distribute this file, must I also distribute bar.js under the GPL?
  2. CC Searching within Google Image Search — what it seems. (via waxy)
  3. YQL INSERT INTOinsert into {table} (status,username,password) values ("new tweet from YQL", "twitterusernamehere","twitterpasswordhere"). That’s too cool. (via Simon Willison)
  4. CleanWell — very low-cost recyclable enviro-friendly antimicrobials to battle third-world disease. Met the founder at Sci Foo. He said women wash hands more than men, because women enter bathrooms in pairs. Single easiest way to increase handwashing compliance is to put sinks and basins outside the room, in public view.

  • The “Twenty questions” about GPL appear, at first glance, to each and every one of them be answered fairly well by the GPL FAQ which the Free Software Foundation publishes.


  • Nat,

    I’ve been meaning to mention this for a while. When reading Radar in an RSS reader – notably Google Reader – your “Four Short Links” entries are a bit of a problem. We only get to see the first link due to the entry cutoff. Could you either change the feed or perhaps put the links themselves at the top followed by your comments.
