No Access for the Axis: SourceForge Bows to Government Demands

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… mike melanson Related Posts center_img Tags:#news#web SourceForge, one of the the primary distribution hubs of the open source software movement, has shut its doors to visitors from a number of countries, saying that it is working to become compliant with US laws. In a post yesterday, the site responded to rumors around the Twittersphere that various users from outside the US were unable to access the site.The open-source movement has always been community based, working outside of standard boundaries and borders, and some see SourceForge’s move as going against those basic tenets.Here is the reasoning in SourceForge’s own words:“Since 2003, the SourceForge.net Terms and Conditions of Use have prohibited certain persons from receiving services pursuant to U.S. laws, including, without limitations, the Denied Persons List and the Entity List, and other lists issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security. The specific list of sanctions that affect our users concern the transfer and export of certain technology to foreign persons and governments on the sanctions list.”The site began using automatic IP blocking last week and users from a number of countries, including Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria, are now unable to access the site.While some are calling foul and declaring that this is the death of the open-source movement, we have to assume that the technologically savvy users accessing the site would know how to get around a simple IP-based filter. Whether using a tool like Tor, or a proxy service like HotSpot Shield, it can’t be all that difficult to access the site. The SourceForge blog post reminds that “in addition to participating in the open source community, we also live in the real world, and are governed by the laws of the country in which we are located.” 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Google Image Search Gets a Redesign and New Search Ads

first_imgWith more than 10 billion images indexed, Google Image Search has become the visual reference source to beat. Google’s VP Marissa Mayer took the stage at a press conference today to announce the company’s latest image search redesign.  In November 2009, ReadWriteWeb covered the introduction of Image Swirl but since then little news has come from the search giant. This morning though, rather than offering up another Swirl-like announcement, the company released a significantly new iteration of its current interface alongside the launch of Google Image Search Ads. The new ad product allows marketers to place the image of their choice next to their text advertisement. This feature lets product-based vendors offer images of their offerings based on the relevancy of the ad to image search results. So if the user is searching for a specific phone image and specs, it makes sense that commercial offerings for accessories and cases would co-exist in the commercial header. Apart from the AdWords release, Google’s Image Search redesign offers speed and a higher quantity of images to the user. The new design features a tiled look with the ability to show more than 1,000 photos on a single page. As users hover over the results of their search, the image thumbnail increases and details of that result are displayed.  Below are a few photos of the new interface. The company has rolled out the redesign to 10% of users and will continue to make it available in waves over the next month. To inquire about the image advertisement program, marketers can sign in to their regular AdWords account. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img dana oshiro A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Google#search#web last_img read more
