Some thoughts on licensing from Google's Chris DiBona

Chris DiBona is the director of open source at Google, and he's been taking a big part in the open source and Free software ecosystem for a very long time--not least in his role with Google's Summer of Code. He recently posted on Twitter what he calls "a little rant" about software licensing -- well worth reading the whole (short!) thing.

Dropbox Unplugs Data Center to Test Resilience

Dropbox have published a detailed account of why and how they unplugged an entire data center to test their disaster readiness. The disaster readiness team began building tools to make performing frequent failovers possible, and ran their first formalized failover in 2019.
