Ask Slashdot: Viable Open Source Models For Early Startups?

Mattness Re:Ask your price but don't be cumbersome. (203 comments)

A scenario in which customers might care about the source code could be one in which your software handles customer AND client data and the client (the one using your software) needs to in some way advertise the security and fitness of the software to safely handle their customer data. Advertising that it is publicly available and allowing new clients to hire anyone they like to review it might be advantageous. It allows clients to provide customers with an assurance that though they outsource the service to a 3rd party, (your software company) they have an independent review of the open source platform they are using and can offer a higher degree of assurance than a similar company outsourcing that service to a closed source platform.

No Hand-Held Devices In Ontario Cars

Mattness Isn't driving badly incentive enough? (584 comments)

It would seem incentive enough that driving badly can result in injury, death or jail time, simply for being negligent in your responsibility to navigate the road safely. I think it is arrogance that makes legislators think that a problem has a legislative solution. It is an example of those who have only incompetent hammers, seeing everything as a nail.

Google Calendar won't stop texting me.

Mattness Mattness writes  |  about 5 years ago

Mattness (636060) writes "A few years ago I setup a google calendar and even added the nifty SMS feature when I had unlimited texts. It was great to get a text message notifying me of appointments and meetings and lunches. However when I switched to a different text messaging plan and phone I removed the sms authorization and even deleted the calendar. Yet I still am receiving text messages for repeating events. This has been going on for 2+ years now with only a response from google suggesting I do what I have already done (de-authorize the mobile phone and deleted the already deleted calendar and events). They have stated that they are investigating the issue and I have seen no change in the behavior. I have now also stopped receiving responses regarding the issue and have lost my patience with Google. How do I stop Google from spamming me 4 times a day with unneeded text messages. Is anyone else having this problem?"
