No, for me, it seems my e-mail applicationdecides to crash after I've spent 20 minutes thumbing out a reply whilesitting in a crowded airport. If you've ever lost a love letter, termpaper, shopping list or world-class Facebook post, Type Machine is theperfect app for you.

By the end of December 2005, I had been blogging on ODF developments in Massachusetts for about four months, providing interviews, legal analysis and news as it happened. In those early days, not many bloggers were covering the ODF story, and email began to come my way from people that I had never met before, from as far away as Australia, and as near as the State House in Boston. Some began with, “This seems really important – what can I do to help?” Others contained important information that someone wanted to share, and that I was happy to receive.

Among the worst of the worst patent trolls out there, Macrosolve had quite a reputation -- described as "worse than Lodsys" it took a sue tons of companies first, demand settlements later approach, based on an obviously ridiculous patent (7,822,816) for a "system and method for data management" that the company insisted, hilariously, covered any mobile app that used online forms where users could submit data. Yes, forms. For a patent filed in 2003 and granted in 2010. In a bit of a "cute" move, the company tried to pretend it wasn't a troll by doing a deal with... Donald Trump, which apparently suckered some in the press to claim that it wasn't a troll.

We've been talking a lot about the power and importance of open access for academic (and especially government funded) research. More and more universities have agreed, with some even having general open access policies for their academics, requiring them to release research under open access policies. This makes sense, because one of the key aspects of education and knowledge is the ability to share it freely and to build on the work of others. Without open access, this is made much more difficult. So it's immensely troubling to discover that one of the biggest science publishers out there, Nature Publishing Group, has started telling academics that they need to get a "waiver" from their university's open access policies.
