WSJ writes about OpenStreetMap

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703296604576005443474685736.html

(If you can't read the whole piece use Google to search for "Map Wiki
Plots New Route".  When referred by Google, you do not need the
subscription.)

Business focus on the expenses of buying map data and doing the mapping
yourself.  Microsoft and AOL have contributed money and data to the
project.

I thought it was interesting to find this in the WSJ.  Business
understanding of open source (open data??) seems to be improving.

Boston Linux Meeting Wednesday, December 15, 2010 Virtualization with OpenVZ

When: December 15, 2010 7PM (6:30PM for Q&A)
Topic: Virtualization with OpenVZ
Moderator: Eugene Gorelik - eugene.gorelik gmail com
Location: MIT Building E51, Room 325

An overview of OpenVZ, the open-source version of Parallels VM

OpenVZ is container-based virtualization for Linux. OpenVZ creates
multiple secure, isolated containers (otherwise known as VEs or VPSs) on
a single physical server enabling better server utilization and ensuring
that applications do not conflict. Each container performs and executes
exactly like a stand-alone server; a container can be rebooted
independently and have root access, users, IP addresses, memory,
processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration
files. For more information about the technology and how it differs from
the others like Xen, VMware etc., refer to:
http://wiki.openvz.org/Main_Page.

OpenVZ is free open source software, available under GNU GPL.

OpenVZ is the basis of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, a commercial
virtualization solution offered by Parallels. OpenVZ project is
supported by Parallels

For further information and directions please consult the BLU Web site
http://www.blu.org
Please note that there is usually plenty of free parking in the E-51
parking lot at 2 Amherst St, or directly on Amherst St.

After the meeting we will adjourn to the official after meeting meeting

MyPasswordSafe converter to KeePassX available

I've just released a working version of a tool that will take a "password safe" from the Linux program MyPasswordSafe, and convert that to a suitable format for use in KeepassX [1]

The code is written in PHP and is available on GitHub
https://github.com/freephile/MyPasswordSafe2KeepassX

By the way, one great thing about KeepassX is that there is also a free version called KeepassDroid for the Android phone (http://www.keepassdroid.com/)  Used in tandem with the Dropbox app on your phone, you can keep your passwords with you wherever you go.
