Hi, everybody!

Today I have stumbled on a very interestiong instrument that misght be of interest for members of Driving Socrates community. It is Flock – a Firefox-based Web-browser for active users of Blogs and other social web-services. Besides a really neat interface it seems rather functional, though has some glitches.

Still it has some advantages like automatic blogging, Flickr support and more. I think the people behind the project need your feedback.

BTW, this entry was created using Flock (:

This is cool stuff! I would agree that it is still a bit buggy, but for anyone who has used/tested beta versions of new apps the glitches will not seem extreme.

This is the kind of thing that reinforces my love and respect for the philosophy behind open-source. Yes this is ‘free’ software, but think of it not so much like ‘free beer’….it’s more in the category of ‘free speech’.

Indeed, open-source is cool. As for free speech – Peru Parliament has recently adopted a law that requires public authorities to give preference to open source apps when buing software. The reason behind that is clear – it means more transparency and more accountability. For example, I would not like to use electronic voting machines that run proprietary soft… just because the software house that develops it may be a daughter company of Haliburton…

Flock–interesting stuff…

Thank you for the reminder of “Haliburton” and our lovely 2004 election. How could we forget Diebold, and how the GOP President of the Company promised to deliver his State to Bush…ahh memories…does anyone know if Diebold will be allowed to repeat this performance in 2008????
