Weekly wrap-up: Groklaw says goodnight, Unix pioneers share memories, and more
Aug 23, 2013, 12:00 (3 Talkback[s])
Groklaw says goodnight. Whether you were a Groklaw reader or not, it's difficult not to mourn the loss of the popular intellectual property law blog, which shuttered Tuesday when editor Pamela Jones aka "PJ" announced she no longer trusted email privacy. In her passionate final post, Jones explains that she tried to come to terms with recent National Security Agency surveillance revelations but that she values hers and her readers' privacy too much to continue blogging. Jones deliberately turned off comments on her final post, which I feel was wise given the trolls that lurk on the web. For more background on Groklaw and Jones, check out her interview with Opensource.com on the day editorial control was passed to Mark Webbink.
