Reviving SOPA, Inside Instagram, Data Apps, and Recruiting Open Source Contributors

  1. Lamar Smith Trying to Revive SOPA (BoingBoing) — don’t hate Smith, pity him. He’s a prostitute, and it shouldn’t surprise that when released from prison he immediately returns to the street corner to hawk his pearly again. He’s a victim of a political system that requires politicians to sell their integrity to be elected.
  2. What Powers Instagram — I love seeing inside other companies’ technology. (via Hacker News)
  3. Recline.jssimple but powerful library for building data applications in pure Javascript and HTML. (via Open Knowledge Foundation)
  4. How to Recruit Open Source Contributors (Daniel Berkholz) — with actual data from Gentoo’s GSoC projects this year. Good stuff!
