Mitmachen: Stoppt ACTA! | Digitale Gesellschaft

Stop ACTA! LogoDurch den ganzen Medienrummel um SOPA und PIPA ist ACTA hier fast in Vergessenheit geraten. Heute wird, nach Information von, eine EU Delegation ACTA unterzeichnen.

Egal wie man zum derzeitigen Urheberrecht steht kann ich mich dem Aufruf der Digitale Gesellschaft e.V.Mitmachen: Stoppt ACTA! | Digitale Gesellschaft – nur anschließen. Der ganze Prozess entbehrt leider jeglicher demokratischer Grundlage und geht uns schon aus diesem Grund alle an.

Jeder sollte sich hierzu eine Meinung bilden. Die Digitale Gesellschaft hat hierzu eine Übersicht erstellt: Warum ist ACTA so umstritten? Und warum sich Politiker und Bürger dafür interessieren sollten!

Bitcasa Beta Zugang erhalten

Habe gestern meinen Betazugang für Bitcasa erhalten – inklusive eines nondisclosure agreement. Daher kann ich bis auf weiteres nicht viel dazuschreiben. Wer aber Interesse hat Bitcasa selbst zutesten kann sich gerne melden. Ich habe hier noch ein paar Invite Codes übrig.

Transformationen in der Kammerabranche

Nach dem ich den Artikel DSLRs are a dying breed – 3rd Gen Cameras are the Future von Trey Ratcliff gelesen hatte und und nun Kodak Insolvenz angemeldet hat denke ich das sich die Transformationsphase in der Kamerabranche noch weiter zunehmen wird. Bin mal gespannt ob es Nikon und Cannon schaffen werden mit Ihrer derzeitigen Strategie weiterhin erfolg zuhaben.

One of my favorite GeekBrief.TV moments was when we highlighted Jeff Han’s multitouch display. We showed tech that happened for real people a couple years later on iPhone.

I’m pretty sure soon, our desks will be digitized so we can manipulate our data like EXOdesk is suggesting here …

Exclusive: Adobe ceases development on mobile browser Flash, refocuses efforts on HTML5

By Jason Perlow | November 8, 2011, 9:17pm PST

Summary: Adobe has briefed developers on the impending cessation of mobile flash browser plugin development.

Sources close to Adobe that have been briefed on the company’s future development plans have revealed this forthcoming announcement to ZDNet:

Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations. Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations. We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates.

Additionally, the e-mail briefing to Adobe’s partners has been summed up as follows:

  • Adobe is Stopping development on Flash Player for browsers on mobile.

Adobe is now focusing their development efforts on:

  • Applications for mobile
  • Expressive content on the desktop (in and out of browser)
  • Increasing their investments in HTML5 in general

The full content and scope of the announcement is expected to be posted on the Adobe web site in the next day.
