    Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) 

    As most of you might have read or heard, SOPA is the way some companies want to deal with online piracy. SOPA was created without taking into account big internet/web companies although it is going to change the way the web is “governed” today. Tetrabytes officially, is against SOPA  since it is a threat to online freedom of speech by creating blacklists and will have a negative impact on web hosting services. Furthermore, it will lead to weakening of “safe harbor” protections for websites and is a general threat to web-related businesses.

    In addition to the above, SOPA is a threat to users uploading content and to open source software. Finally, there is a lack of transparency in enforcement and as it is commonly admitted, much of what will happen under SOPA will occur out of the public eye and without the possibility of holding anyone accountable, for when copyright law is made and enforced privately, it is hard for the public to know the shape that the law takes and harder still to complain about its operation.

    Android apps on blackberry devices!! 

    RIM is allegedly prepping the QNX-based operating system running their forthcoming PlayBook tablet to run Android applications, according to a Bloomberg article. As RIM has stated that the QNX platform will run at least some of its upcoming smartphones as well, this could cinch Android’s status as the lingua franca of smartphone application environments, especially with BlackBerry’s current market leadership and Android’s explosive marketshare growth.

    Complexity Kills 

    Don Ferguson, the “father” of IBM WebSphere was recently interviewed by the BBC:

    What’s the biggest technology mistake you ever made – either at work or in your own life?
    When I was at IBM, I started a product called Websphere [which helps companies to operate and integrate business applications across multiple computing platforms]. Because I had come from working on big mission-critical systems, I thought it needs to be scalable, reliable, have a single point of control

    I tried to build something like a mainframe, a system that was capable of doing anything, that would be able to do what might be needed in five years. I call it the endgame fallacy. It was too complex for people to master. I overdesigned it. Because we were IBM, we survived it, but if we’d been a start-up, we’d have gone to the wall.

    Too complex and overdesigned. Check. We at Tetrabytes, give great weight to how complex and user friendly our projects are. Of course and we design user customized products but our goal is to maintain simplicity and usability. In our opinion it’s really bad for a client to reject an implementation because he/she found it difficult to use and get trained to it.

    Open-source music… 

    Music industry is broken and the current model doesn’t seem to work anymore thats why different initiatives come to take the music business to the next level. One of these initiative is Severed Fifth Open band….below you can check their system and here you can read an interesting article.

    Open Band Three Tier system

    Severed Fifth is a music project with three core principles, which I have labeled as the Open Band Three Tier system:

    1. We give the music away freely: Like open source, this encourages redistribution and awareness, and empowers fans to harness the content, share it with friends, and ultimately bring more listeners to the band (in the same way open source has exploded in popularity due to the free availability of content for users to test and assess if it works for them).
    2. We build community: I have taken my experience in community management to build a community around Severed Fifth. This helps fans feel part of a project they can contribute to. We have done this in the form of the Severed Fifth Street Team.
  • We socialize Severed Fifth Fair Pay: We encourage people to pay what is fair and reasonable to them to help support the band. This is powered by PayPal and anyone with a piece of plastic in their wallet can contribute. Thanks to the free availability of content and the community feel, people gain a closer connection to the band. In turn, they are more likely to contribute. We have already seen many financial contributions from fans.
