I noticed this post on The Register: Lloyd’s taking on open source IP risk.
On the one hand I think this is great news, because the fact insurance companies are willing to get involved implies to me that the risk of litigation must be low. Afterall, insurance companies are in the business of making money.
On the other hand I see it as a little sad that yet another industry is trying to cash in on the Open Source community without giving anything back.
By the way, I got bitten by an insect on Tuesday night and by yesterday my arm was swollen. After a quick trip to the quack (doctor) I found I had cellulitis (an infection under the skin). On top of that, my dodgy throat that I thought had cleared up has come back, but this time as an annoying cough. I’m hoping it’s a bacterial secondary infection, that way the antibiotics for my cellulitis will fix this also. In reality it’s probably viral so I’m gonna have to wait it out.
I’m thinking of changing the name of this blog to “Disease Watch!” 🙂
