Microsoft acquires githubpermalink

www.bloomberg.com

The software maker has agreed to acquire GitHub, the code-repository company popular with many software developers, and could announce the deal as soon as Monday, according to people familiar with the matter.

I guess there is a fair skepticism over the acquisition. Despite they didn’t screw up linkedin yet. They however did ruin Skype, which was an enterprise instant messenger and wildly popular everywhere, and turned it into a cheap snapchat wanna-be clone.

Hello Github by the new CEOpermalink

Nat Friedman, Future Github CEO

The Octocat is out of the bag: GitHub is joining Microsoft and I will become the new CEO when the deal closes later this year. I’m confident that this change will be great for GitHub and developers around the world, and I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself.

Who am I? My name is Nat and I’ve been a developer since I was six. I’ve been active in open source since the 90s when I discovered Linux.

I’m not asking for your trust, but I’m committed to earning it. I can’t wait to help make the GitHub platform and community that’s special to all of us even greater.

A perfectly proof-read, assuring and satisfactory post-acquisition introductory letter.

WikiTribune is a wiki based news sharing website, by the Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales 

I don’t get its point at least as yet. Wikipedia works because there wasn’t a free sober extensive alternative available., on the contrary, there are billions of way to get news and authentic ones too. So I don’t see the point as yet. The blogging tried to revolutionize the citizen journalism., later on Twitter and the latest failed attempt was Medium1, at the end of the day, it’s painfully time-consuming and physically tiresome with little to no rewards. Comparing it to Wikipedia is comparing Apples to Oranges.

The simple answer is Google’s leadership profoundly betrayed the longtime personal trust and friendship of Apple’s leadership in stealing what Steve Jobs believed were Apple’s most prized possessions. The fuller answer is below, in a telling timeline of the once exceptionally-close Apple-Google relationship.

In an explosive new allegation, a renowned architect has accused Google of racketeering, saying in a lawsuit the company has a pattern of stealing trade secrets from people it first invites to collaborate. Source

One would guess it’s a coincidence, but then you realize it isn’t.
