GitHub - jgm/gitit: A wiki using HAppS, pandoc, and git
"Pages and uploaded files are stored in a git, darcs, or mercurial repository and may be modified either by using the VCS's command-line tools or through the wiki's web interface. By default, pandoc's extended version of markdown is used as a markup language, but reStructuredText, LaTeX, HTML, DocBook, or Emacs Org-mode markup can also be used. Pages can be exported in a number of different formats, including LaTeX, RTF, OpenOffice ODT, and MediaWiki markup. Gitit can be configured to display TeX math (using texmath) and highlighted source code (using highlighting-kate)."

"aims at the construction of a hardware database in order to identify what devices work with a fully free operating system. [...] h-node lists only hardware that works with free drivers and without non-free firmware. Other GNU/Linux distributions (or Debian with contrib, non-free, or some 3rd-party archives enabled) include non-free firmware files, so they cannot be used for testing."

Ada Bare bones - OSDev Wiki
"One of the first things people ask on the Ada IRC channel on Freenode is "Can Ada be used for OS development?" to which the answer is a resounding yes. But there are 2 problems:
- The people asking this question are new to Ada, and
- GNAT is not the easiest compiler to build."

"For this tutorial, we will use the system GNAT compiler to build for a PC i386. GNAT is part of GCC. Later I will show how to build an arm-elf compiler and tools"

ThePlan - Wiki
"The overarching goal of is to seamlessly bridge the phone network to standard text/voice(/video) protocols so users have at least as much functionality but with far more flexibility. Once we've achieved that, then we should be able to convince everyone to switch to the standard protocols (since they can seamlessly communicate with those not (yet) using the standard protocols) and turn off the phone network. If we can't convince them, that's probably an indication that the goal hasn't been achieved (ie. the phone network still has features that we haven't yet replicated with standard protocols)."
(pmz: note the last point about making cheaper non-MMU phones: a case for inferno?)

TextEditors Wiki: DesigningTextEditors
"IMHO, you need the following logical parts to form a text editor:
Text BufferModels? (including capability for input and output)
User Interface (keyboard and mouse language)
Screen Handling
Data Syntax knowledge
MacroLanguage (optional)
CommandLanguage (optional)"

"The protocol is not standardized and this document was created by studying the source code to the Ninjam curses client 0.01a and server 0.06."

..but man, it sure does seem like there are Plan9 concepts here. The protocol's time/tempo model is the real innovation.

Double Ratchet Algorithm
Aiming at being a protocol that combines OTR-like DH ratchet with forward-security of symmetric-key updating(this allows for healing of the conversation by introducing new ratchet keys, if the original keys are leaked).
Idea is that it improves on OTR, allowing better support for out-of-order messages, reduces leaking of metadata. Formerly known as "Axolotl"
Still very early. A formal description is given, but not enough for implementation

Micropublication and open source research
Upcoming book extract: "The idea of micropublication is to enable publication in smaller increments and more diverse formats than in the standard scientific research paper. The idea of open source research is to open up the licensing model of scientific publication, providing more flexible ways in which prior work can be modified and re-used, while ensuring that all contributions are fully recognized and acknowledged."

A modern wiki for a modern internet: the Smallest Federated Wiki on The GovLab’s Demos for Democracy | The Governance Lab @ NYUThe Governance Lab @ NYU
"Cunningham and Caulfield discussed a number of different use cases and examples, showing how different groups could have their wikis interact with each other and the outside world. All of the different groups above are using heavily overlapping sources and data, but each have a different take on the end product. Their wikis will be able to have the same foundational pages, but combined in different ways with different pieces of analysis. Cunningham and Caulfield walked us through the actual wiki itself, and the product was quite slick. When you use Wikipedia, you’ll often find yourself with tons of tabs. The Smallest Federated Wiki was created to make the process of moving between pages substantially easier by showing multiple pages of content on a single tab in your browser. Editing, linking, and simple browsing have all been made easier and more convenient for an ordinary user."

Laptop Server
Ward's notes on running wikis from a laptop.
Note description of farming: "A browser sends to a server the address/name that it intends to browse. We can ask the wiki server to keep a separate wiki for each address it sees. When one server serves many wikis we call it a wiki farm. [...] Now if you browse localhost:3060 you will be looking at one wiki and when you browse you will be looking at another. The address ward.local:3060 is still another. When you port-forward in from the world, still another. Imagine rows an rows of little wikis sprouting up. This is farming.

All of these wiki pages are stored in subfolders of the same .wiki directory. Look for them."
"I recently relaunched, a domain name I held even after the local community chose to call itself

I built this site by making a farm site on an old mac that I leave on at home. I port-forward port 80 to this machine. I called the site some weird name while I assembled the content for launch.

To launch I went to my domain name registrar,, and revised to point to my home router. I then renamed the subdirectory in .wiki to be Done.

I announced as a gift where I would assemble pages from my other wikis that I think they would like. My server is providing this service to my community. Its that simple. "

Method Control Loops
"We consider configuring a Method plugin to retrieve values from the right rather than the left. This allows computational cycles that suggest the finite-difference solution of differential equations though our interests tend more to approximate solutions that are easily reconfigured and conveniently animated."
Hey, this sounds similar to Propogator!
