I'd heard of Benford's Law before, but it was a timely reminder. There are quite a few banks of data that it would be good to test, not least open source community download/member/commit stats...

It's said that "code talks", and if that's true then there's an angelic chorus singing praises about KK somewhere - the data Eduardo has gathered here clearly shows he has the right to an opinion about Hudson.

Just in case you thought the article by Glyn Moody that I linked yesterday was a one-off, this techDirt article from earlier in the year alleges that sophistry is a BSA strategy rather than an accident.

It's common to assume that Russia or China must be the source of most spam, but it continues to be the dubious distinction of the United States to saturate the world's in-boxes with detritus. If they'd put as much effort into stemming spamming and scamming as thay have into getting us all to sell our rights down the river at ACTA we'd all be in much better shape.

While all industry consortium figures need to be treated with scepticism, it's good to see the technology industry fighting back against the well-funded astroturfing of statistics by the media lobby. This report from CCIA is of course funded by vested interests too but it puts on the table the idea that it's not "music & movie professionals versus pirate thief scum kids" as the media lobby has been framing it, but rather "niche media market vs much larger and more diverse 'fair use economy'".

Good to see this fact, which many of us have known for ages, finally showing up officially. Of course, the ACTA folks (like the DeBill people) will carry on acting as if the opposite is true and acting to "protect the creative industry". But that's because they are representative only of industry stakeholders and not of the commons and the really important stakeholder that benefits from it - us.

Carlo's useful first attempt to use the available data to try to discern the effects of choice of license on open source projects. Of course, what we really need is a multi-factor scorecard rather than this license fixation, but it's the best we have right now.
