iDC

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

I started from http://www.shakuf.org.il . No, I actually started from the latest meeting of the pyweb-il group http://groups.google.com/group/pyweb-il, where someone mentioned shakuf. Interested, I proceeded to the 7th eye, read Anat Balint’s very disturbing essay, and by googling her name found out about another very interesting place and mailing list called the iDC, http://www.collectivate.net/idc/, Institude for Distributed Creativity.

“Free Your Phone” February 2007

OpenMoko, for anyone who hasn’t heard, is the next big thing in mobile phones. Or maybe the next next big thing. Anyway it’s my next phone. Recap of the above marketing talk: open phone leads to ubiquitous computing, and Sean is a god. And they can make money from it. But *I* can call everybody automatically and annoy them until hell freezes over, or they find some way to block me! Only minus is that there is no keyboard. A OpenMokoZaurus would have been too much to ask for I guess..

And about getting it – it should be available for 300$ or 450$ if you want the developer package (wonder if you can update the kernel with the 300$ kit?) – see the latest announcement
