Article by the TYPO3 Community Working Group - All credits for this pic go to the one and only manipulator and photographer master Søren Schaffstein
A community becomes a community when people share the same goals, the same values and have a common ground, which creates a sense of belonging for all. We want to share, have fun, inspire and foster our beloved product - we are friends - we are part of the community.

People sometimes ask what the community is to us: It’s everybody who - in whatever way - is engaged in TYPO3: a user, a company, a developer, you name it. When it can say 'TYPO3', it’s a community member. At a certain point when a community evolves, it has to split into smaller parts/teams with not necessarily the bigger picture in mind.

Q: What do you get when you IPO on Monday, for a quarter billion dollars?
A: Sued on the following Sunday, for a quarter billion dollars.

Well, California-based Box Inc's legal team likely had a busy ten days or so. First, on Monday the 24th, they announced their IPO for a quarter of a billion dollars; and before the following Monday rolled in, they found themselves sued for just over a quarter of a billion dollars in damages for patent infringement, by Waterloo, Canada's OpenText -- on a Sunday no less.

Press Release from OpenText:

OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX; TSX: OTC) advised Box, Inc. on Sunday, March 30, 2014 that while OpenText seeks preliminary and permanent injunctions halting the sale of Box's products, it otherwise seeks damages exceeding USD $268 million in the patent infringement lawsuit against Box.

OpenText also seeks interest, damages for willful infringement, and attorney fees. This information was delivered to Box in response to Box’s March 26, 2014 demand that OpenText provide the amount of its damages claimed in response to Box’s discovery request.

Box infringes 200 claims across 12 patents

On June 5, 2013, OpenText filed a patent infringement suit against Box, now pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, Case No. 5:13-cv-4910-EJD, asserting that Box infringes 200 claims across 12 patents in 3 different patent families.

The asserted patents cover the core functionality of Box’s products, including additional functionality attractive to large company customers. The complaint seeks preliminary and permanent injunctions as to Box products, as well as past and future damages.

The Court heard argument on OpenText’s preliminary injunction motion on January 24, 2014, and the parties are waiting for a ruling. In Box’s Opposition to the Motion for Preliminary Injunction, Box offered no defense to infringement of OpenText’s patents.

A case management conference is scheduled to occur on April 10, 2014.

Original article by Andrew Nacin

The third (and maybe last) beta of WordPress 3.9 is now available for download. Beta 3 includes more than 200 changes, including:

  • New features like live widget previews and the new theme installer are now more ready for prime time, so check ‘em out.
  • UI refinements when editing images and when working with media in the editor.
  • We’ve also brought back some of the advanced display settings for images.
  • If you want to test out audio and video playlists, the links will appear in the media manager once you’ve uploaded an audio or video file.
  • For theme developers, we’ve added HTML5 caption support (#26642) to match the new gallery support (#26697).
  • The formatting function that turns straight quotes into smart quotes (among other things) underwent some changes to drastically speed it up, so let us know if you see anything weird.

Posted by Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal & Acquia on Buytaert.net
 
This blog post is on purpose, Open Source, profit and pie. This week I had an opportunity to meet Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum. I was inspired by the following comment he made (not his exact words):

"Because companies strive to have a positive balance sheet, they take more in, than they give out. However, as individuals, we define success as giving more than you take. Given that many of us are leaders as individuals *and* also leaders in our businesses, we often wrestle with these opposing forces. Therein lies the leadership challenge."

I’ve seen many Open Source developers struggle with this as they are inherently wired to give back more than they take. Open Source developers often distrust businesses, sometimes including their own employer, because they take more than they give back. They believe businesses just act out of greed and self-interest.
