RhoHub: GPL and Dual Licensing

We’ve had over a thousand customers sign up to the RhoHub service over the last month since we launched on November 4th at the iPhone Developer Summit. They are now asking “ok I’ve built my app really quickly. Now what do I need to do to distribute it on the App Store or elsewhere?” We ask that you either open source your app by making the source public and putting a GPLv3 license on it (we’ll automate this latter step soon). Or purchase a commercial license if you want to keep your source private. Some people say “oh, you’re dual licensing like MySQL. So does that mean that I get to use it and not pay as I don’t with my MySQL based website?” Companies such as Google have thousands of MySQL servers running without paying license fees for it, due to a loophole in the GPL (in both GPLv2 and GPLv3) known as the “Google exception” or “ASP exception”. Specifically that ... (more)

Mobility – Cloud Computing’s Partner in Crime

As I mentioned last week, a reliance on cloud computing technologies made it very easy to move my office from point A to point B. One aspect I intentionally skipped was our network infrastructure. The cloud is pretty useless if you don’t have Internet access. For most businesses with more than a couple employees, Internet access means getting a service provider to run a line to your business. It means a wiring closet and a router, and it means enabling connections throughout your office space. And if you want wireless, it means setting up all access points and security, and then managing that. Your network infrastructure is not something that lives in the cloud. It is a manual process that requires someone with some skill and it takes time. It takes phone calls to the provider, arranging times for them to come in, and then coordinating the timing such that your sta... (more)
