Regular Expressions, Mac Git, Open Source Patents, and Pepys Lessons
- Rubular — a way to write and test regular expressions interactively. Very cool. (via Adam Fields)
- gitx — OSX ui for git. (via Marc Hedlund)
- Open Source Critical to Competition (Simon Phipps) — DOJ and German Federal Cartel Office see danger for open source in Novell’s patents being acquired by a consortium of Oracle, Microsoft, Apple, and EMC (fancy!) and are taking steps to ensure open source is protected.
- My Talk about Samuel Pepys’s Diary as an Online Story (Phil Gyford) — I love the ways Phil has stretched and repurposed the web’s affects for storytelling. Listen to this talk. (via BoingBoing)
