Achieving Impossible Things with Free Culture and Commons-Based Enterprise : Terry Hancock : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

Six “impossible things”: GNU/Linux, Wikipedia, the Creative Commons, the Blender Foundation, Open Hardware, and the OLPC/Sugar project. All created under free licenses for everyone to use, in defiance of our conventional ideas of business economics. Is it magic, coincidence, or just plain common sense at work here?

The author explores the reality of these projects from an insider’s perspective and picks out a set of five easy to follow rules for keeping your own projects in tune with the rules of free culture and on the track to success.

Includes the entirety of the “Impossible Things” and “Rules of the Game” article series written for Free Software Magazine, as well as five bonus articles on improving commons-based processes.

Instalando Apache, Mysql y PHP de forma fácil


Me ha gustado este software, debido a que esta diseñado para multiples plataformas. Otras versiones como WAMP, o EasyPhp solo estan disponibles para Windows. Sin embargo esta tiene opción para windows, linux, Solaris, MacOs

ache Friends, un proyecto sin fines de lucro que busca promover el uso del servidor web de apache encontramos a XAMPP.

Este proyecto penso inicialmente en el sistema operativo Linux. Hoy en día cuenta con distribuciones para diferentes sistemas operativos. XAMPP ha sido probado exitosamente en las distribuciones de Ubuntu, SuSE, RedHat, Mandrake and Debian.  También tienen una versión que trabaja con Windows, otra para MacOSX y Solaris.

Incluye además PEAR, Perl, ProFTPD, phpMyAdmin, OpenSSL, GD, Freetype2, libjpeg, libpng, gdbm, zlib, expat, Sablotron, libxml, Ming, Webalizer, pdf class, ncurses, mod_perl, FreeTDS, gettext, mcrypt, mhash, eAccelerator, SQLite and IMAP C-Client.

Además de estos proyectos también podemos mencionar al Ibserver (aunque lleva bastante tiempo sin actualizaciones) y al Uniform Server.  Si conoces alguna otra aplicación que valga la pena revisar, no dudes en dejarnos unas líneas en los comentarios.

Luego de instalar cualquiera de estos paquetes, hay que ir configurando su editor de desarrollo hacia http://localhost para asegurarse que sus aplicaciones funcionen sin problemas antes de llevarlas a su servidor de producción.

Course credits and grading

The total studyload of the course is 3 EC. There will not be a written examination. Participants will get a final assignment to take home and finish in the weeks after the course.


Considering the complexity of biological systems it is not surprising that the management of life science information is one of the most challenging aspects of bioinformatics. For example, (medical) biologists have compiled over 17 million papers, and well over a thousand databases. In many cases finding and applying the information from these resources is far from trivial. In fact, a majority ends up on a formidable ‘data graveyard’ (how many of the >1000 databases do you know?). Following this course can help you prevent your data or your information management system to follow the same fate.
