Four short links: 9 September 2011

Pay for News?, Outages Compendium, CSS Sudoku Solver, and Open Source in the Military

  1. A Simple Test For Whether People Will Pay For News — an excellent thought experiment, one which sends shivers down the spines of editors.
  2. Outages.orgThis is as complete a list as possible of links to carrier and other provider network status pages as well as links to network diagnostic tools; user contributions are strongly encouraged. (via Jesse Vincent)
  3. Sudoku Solver Just in CSS — boggle. (via Paul Irish)
  4. MIL-OSS Conference WriteupAlex S. Voultepsis explained how the intelligence community has built up an internal infrastructure with the tools that people want to use; in a vast number of cases, they use OSS to do this. For example, Intellipedia is implemented using MediaWiki, the same software that runs Wikipedia. (via John Scott)

    FWIW, I like twitter search for my initial outage info. If I suspect there’s an issue with Rackspace or AWS there’s usually some people there complaining by the time I look.

    I look forward to your four links every day. Thanks!
