Nominate for Packt Open Source Awards

Packt Pub (technical publishing company with lots of great books) has been running a competition for five years now, promoting and rewarding the best of open source in a number of categories (with a prize pool of $24,000). I’ve been a judge for them for a few years too (although this year I’m just too busy).

It’s coming up again this year, so if you’re keen, jump on over to the site before September 17th and nominate your favourite free software project!


Ksplice awarded most innovative security technology of 2009

Congratulations to the Ksplice team which has just been awarded the Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award in Security/Privacy for 2009!

Ksplice is technology which can apply patches to the Linux kernel on the fly, without needing a reboot. Also see my interview with Waseem Daher, one of the founding members of the team.
