Linux, GNU, and you

The GNU project started as an attempt to provide a free and open UNIX system to replace the expensive proprietary UNIXes of the day.

The GNU project took a long time to finish the most important part: the kernel. Explaining what a kernel is accurately would be too technical for this article, but it’s enough to say that it’s really important.

While GNU was working on its kernel, Linux popped up and started making waves. The trouble? Linux was just a kernel. While the kernel is a big deal, you need some tools around that kernel to make an operating system.

That’s where GNU came in. The Linux community took the kernel-deficient mass of GNU tools and merged them with Linux to make a full operating system.

But the GNU project wasn’t happy about this. That someone found value in their tools was great, but they were calling it “Linux.” GNU was nowhere to be found in the name.

“Linux? Who does this Finnish upstart think he is? Jerk.”

But GNU was born of the desire to open the world of UNIX to the masses, and forcing the Linux community to put GNU in the name would go against the GNU project’s principles.

So a compromise was reached: GNU would request inclusion in the name. Politely.

But very few people listened. People took issue with the form of inclusion GNU wanted.

“GNU/Linux”

You don’t need to be a marketing wizard to know why only the most die-hard GNU supporter goes along with this. It’s hideous.

What GNU misses is that Linux is a brand far more than it is a collection of code. Linux as a brand is about having the right tools for the job. It’s close to Windows in that respect.

People use Windows because it works. People use Linux, the software under the brand, because they can open their software center and get just about any tool they need in moments.

When most people say “Linux,” they’re referring to that brand and all it encompasses, not just the kernel. Linux works. Ubuntu Linux works. Fedora Linux works.

Even “Ubuntu Linux with GNU” sounds fine. I think most people could get behind that. It’s like “Intel inside.” It’s easy to put in marketing material. The average user won’t know (or care) what GNU is, but it’ll be there.

If GNU wants people to attribute its contribution in the name, it needs a better approach.

Pozivi za projekte – Rising Voices’ latest round of micro-grant funding call for proposals

Rising Voices is accepting project proposals from NGOs or individuals under its latest round of micro-grant funding for digital media outreach projects around the world. Rising Voices will award funding to selected organizations or individuals with a funding of up to US $4,000.

Ideal applicants will present innovative and detailed proposals to teach citizen media techniques to underrepresented communities that are poorly positioned to discover and take advantage of tools like blogging, video-blogging, or podcasting on their own.

This funding opportunity is open to both NGOs and private individuals. However, if an NGO does not have experienced citizen media trainers on their staff, it is extremely important that they seek collaboration with the local blogging community to find the right trainer(s) with the necessary skills. On the other hand, it would also be highly beneficial for individual applicants to partner with an existing NGO from the communities they plan to serve in order to strengthen the project’s impact.

The application deadline is February 4th, 2011. For more information, visit this link.

Grant: biblioteka za osobe sa invaliditetom

Projekat biblioteke za osobe sa invaliditetom (The Global Disability Rights Library Project) objavljuje poziv za organizacije da se prijave za primanje besplatne digitalne biblioteke za osobe sa invaliditetom. Prijave su otvorene za organizacije, univerzitete, i agencije osobe s invaliditetom u zemljama u razvoju. Šezdeset organizacija će dobiti digitalne biblioteke koje ce ih osnažiti kako bi širili vrijednosti i znanja o pravima osoba sa invaliditetom u svojim zajednicama.

Cilj GDRL projekta je poboljšati život osoba s invaliditetom u zemljama u razvoju. Projekt koristi inovativnu off-line digitalnu tehnologiju za pohranu kako bi dostavio digitalne resurse ljudima izvan dosega interneta. Elektronska biblioteka će biti pohranjena na hard disku, pod nazivom “eGranary unit” koja također sadrži sučelje koje imitira izgled i funkcioniranje weba, ali bez potrebe za stvarnom internet povezanoscu. Korisnici će biti osobe s invaliditetom u organizacijama (organizacijama osoba s invaliditetom), donositelji odluka, vladine agencije, individualni zagovaraci, i drugi koji ne mogu lako skinuti podatke s weba. Pročitajte više o GDRL projektu: http://lists.hrea.org/phplist/lt.php?id=Kh5TCwpfCw5QABgGCgMFUk4BBFcE

GDRL je saradnicki napor izmedju U.S. International Council on Disabilities projekta WiderNet Univerziteta i Ajoci (Iowa) uz podrsku USAID-a, u cilju sirenja najboljih informacija o pravima osoba sa invaliditetom i Konvencije o pravima osoba sa invaliditetom u zemljama u razvoju.

Idealan kandidat za dobijanje podrske će imati pokazanu predanost promicanju i olakšavanju prava invalidnosti. Uspješni kandidati će imati organizacijsku sposobnost da postane centar za distribuciju informacije o pravima osoba sa invaliditetom, te će uključivati različite zajednice osoba sa invaliditetom.
