I do a lot of work on open source, but my most valuable contributions haven't been code. Writing a patch is the easiest part of open source.

Code-sharing site GitHub has announced that Atom, its highly customizable code editor, has left beta and its full source code is now available to world+dog under the MIT open source license.

That reality became painfully clear to more than 40 million Target customers, whose credit card numbers got hijacked over the Christmas holidays. In an attempt to salvage the department-store chain’s reputation, the board yesterday removed CEO Gregg Steinhafel. Don’t be fooled, though. That was only a PR maneuver and, having come five months late, a bad one too.

Having gone through the pain of dual booting Ubuntu 14.04 with Windows 8.1, I thought it worthwhile to document the steps that I performed to get it all working. I hope this helps some other people who are struggling to get it to work.

I’ve found a few articles about using the Clojure programming language on the BeagleBone Black. However, all of them I’ve seen gloss over the installation steps. I got Clojure 1.6.0 running on my rev B BeagleBone Black (aka BBB from here on) and I’ve outlined the steps to do it in this post. If you haven’t done anything with your BBB yet, plug it in to a free USB port and open START.htm when it mounts as a drive.
