Interesting articles...

(Comments)

Some interesting articles to read when I came back from holiday. It seems Swahili free software stuff is moving forward in lots of fronts. Tomorrow I'm going up to Pretoria to train some of the KiLinux team on using ooo-build for building localized OpenOffice.org.
Kamusi Project Internet Living Swahili Dictionary is a good read, this is a great project.
Tanzanian government uses OSS for localisation shows how the government is realising the importance of free software.
Also found this article on the Guardian on Owning ideas a good read - not neccessarily technically right in everything, but has some good insight and is accessible to people unfamiliar with the debates... e.g. Patenting ideas rewards failure and makes success more difficult. ... This is madness. Ideas aren't things. They're much more valuable than that
Looks like Firefox 1.5 is going to be released shortly, thus making this a fun week :-) Most of the issues in the translate toolkit for Firefox 1.5 have been resolved, there are still some that I'm working on but people seem able to produce their translations OK using it.
