While this may indeed be a nasty case of synchronicity, the incident serves to prove how ridiculous it is for software implementation in an era of open source and open standards to be patentableThe sooner software patents are put beyond use of any corporation, the better.

While I have no problem at all with Canonical innovating, I fear that part of their motivation in developing in isolation from the GNOME community is becuase otherwise they would be unable to maintain ownership of the resulting code - presumably this is one of the drivers for them initiating Project Harmony. So I'm interested in Dave's analysis that suggests they may have failed to learn the lessons of history from other before them who have tried the same thing.

After 18 years, the world's best developer conference closes the shutters after seeing a huge fall in registrations. I have a decade of the very best memories of speaking there and I wish Wayne and Peggy the happiest retirement possible.

Proposed legislation in South Africa will make it mandatory to patent all outcomes of public-funded work and to sell the patents to the highest bidder. Seems to me this is the opposite of the direction the EU is taking. It will presumably make it impossible for open source to participate in South African government-funded projects. Wasn't this the same approach that India rejected?
