“Despite what appears to be a big-budget lobbying effort by the pro-patent fraternity, Hon Simon Power announced [on July 15] that he wouldn’t be modifying the proposed Patents Bill hence software will be unpatentable once the Bill passes into law.” — You may have already seen this news, but I’m posting it for two reasons. First, I still think it’s fantastic! second, this is from the NZ Computer Society, which unlike the British Computer Society is willing to take a stand on behalf of its members.
We all have days like this.
Congratulations to Evan and the team on this encouraging next step they’ve taken. I remain convinced that the StatusNet microblogging platform is going to be instrumental in the network-of-things revolution that’s just around the corner, so keep an eye on this software and company.
