ScriptBasic is an interpreter for the old language BASIC. It runs on Win32 as well as on UNIXes as a command-line or CGI program interpreter. It includes an interpreter, a compilable, well-documented embedding and extending interface for the C programmer, and a rich set of commands and functions.
Groowiki is a Wiki program and a document management system together. It is a wiki program that utilizes Subversion, Groovy, Velocity, and many more existing products. It lets you edit Wiki pages in a tree structure just like any other wiki, but it also gives you SVN access that makes it very easy to add files to the content. It stores everything in SVN. This way all information is versioned and (optionally) accessible offline, and you can upload your modifications in batches. This is especially useful if you work with large files and the Wiki pages mainly summarize the contents of the documents.
NOT Free Software is the ultimate black box killer
You wrote in your article:
>Free Software is the ultimate black box killer
This is a dangerous sentence. Anyone from the other side of this battle may read this and say: "Hey! Stop Free Software and protect intellectual property!"
I know what you mean, but others may misinterpret, thus I ask you to formulate such sentences with great care!
Rather not Free Software (you even wrote it capitalized that may mislead reader to think about the organization) but human nature, curiosity, willingness to break anything that may restrict personal freedom is the ultimate black box killer. True that these are the features of human nature that leads to free software. However these and not free software itself is the core killer.
Stopping free software would not eliminate information stealing (copying copyrighted music, text, video) if possible at all.
I truly believe that they will loose this battle. Formerly publishers had a single resource to produce the physical entities delivering the information (music, video etc). This is monopoly and led to extra profit. As technology changes this extra profit is slowly removing. They battle to retain this profit, which they will not be able to. The harder they fight the slower the industry changes, but it will change.
I am sure that the publisher industry should not change abrupt. That would cause disaster, loosing jobs, crashing firms. But while they seek legal and technical tools to protect the profit that comes from their old business model there should be a research investigating what the new business model is. The question is: what are the services they provide.
Selection of content purging the invaluable ones? Yes, for sure.
Delivery of content? Not anymore, Internet does it.
Creation of content? Yes, this is really something they add. Writer write the book but it also has to be proof read and formatted. This is really a service.
They have to find a business model to cover these services, but not more. They should adapt to technology changes and not fight technology changes. Stopping technology was never successful, and I believe it will not ever.
