The newspaper he runs, Azadliq (“freedom” in Azeri), is one of the last remaining opposition titles still standing in a ravaged media landscape. Squeezed by fines and deprived of income by the press distribution monopoly, it is struggling to survive. However, the fight itself was not the be-all and end-all for Zahid. In 2012 he undertook to break the wall of censorship that prevailed in Azerbaijan’s broadcast media. With few resources he launched the television program “ Azerbaijan Hour” which is broadcast by satellite for a few hours every week from abroad. The transmission was jammed and kicked off the satellite which first relayed it but, undeterred, Zahid managed to relaunch it. Since then, he has stayed away from Azerbaijan for the time being. The threats that made him decide to take his family out of the country seem unlikely to end soon.

DocVerse: Syncing Makes Better Collaboration

first_imgTags:#enterprise#Products In Google Docs, you can collaborate with other people when you are working online. Making edits to a document while offline can be an issue as the syncing capabilities get a bit tricky when you reconnect.The DocVerse team knows the challenges of working on deeply collaborative technologies. The founders came from Microsoft where they worked on Sharepoint and SQL. They left Microsoft to solve two problems:Make it simple to share documents.And provide the capability for multiple people to edit documents without having to go through the tedious process of tracking multiple versions of a document.DocVerse does this by installing a lightweight plug-in that is installed in the background of the user’s machine. The plug-in opens a widget in the document sidebar that includes a unique link. Any time a user makes an update, the plug-in syncs the web page that is associated with the document. Every modification gets synced. When multiple people work on a document, the updates are made through the plug-in and versions are stored online.

CloudCamp at OSCON: 5 Topics We’d Like to Discuss

first_imgalex williams We are thinking of how to get the most out of CloudCamp at OSCON on Monday night as the discussions will be exclusively about open-source and the cloud.So we decided why not write down some topics that we’d like to explore. These are in no particular order but just generally what we are thinking about. A lot of these questions come from trends and topics of discussion we are seeing on the Web.Let’s get started:The BasicsA simple discussion on the different components of the open cloud. Questions: What is the anatomy of the open cloud? What are its components at the node and system infrastructure level? What are the dynamics of the current market that is affecting its overall structure? On Azure and Proprietary SystemsA general discussion to explore Windows Azure’s significance and how other proprietary systems are affecting the direction of cloud computing.Open-Source Database Explosion!According to Kin Lane, a boom in open-source database offerings is evident in looking at the exhibitor list at OSCON. What’s happening is a disruptive change that the database world has not seen in the past 20 years. What are the dynamics of this trend? Interoperability: Will It Ever Happen?Interoperability between service providers can help avoid vendor lock-in. But will interoperability ever happen? Are there any brewing open source standards so data can be easily moved between services? Are standards needed?On Open-Source SaaSSaaS services are proliferating. What are the emerging principles of open-source SaaS environments? What will open-source SaaS services look like in the years ahead?That’s a start. There are any number of discussions to be had at an event like CloudCamp.I am the local organizer for CloudCamp Portland. Hope you can make it if you are in town. CloudCamp Portland will start on Monday at 7 pm in the Oregon Convention Center. It is free to attend.

What Is Jalen McCleskey’s Ceiling As a Sophomore?

first_imgI’m about to float an insane theory that I realize is an insane theory, but I cannot stop myself from floating it anyway. Jalen McCleskey is going to be better in 2016 for two reasons:He is older and weighs moreHe switched to No. 1Oklahoma State’s history of offensive players wearing No. 1 in the Mike Gundy Era is not necessarily lengthy, but it is impressive. For the last few years, Ra’Shaad Samples has worn the number which didn’t amount to much, but just before him it was Joe Randle and Dez Bryant. Pretty solid company. The number just looks slick on the field. Kevin Peterson wore it well on defense.I remember Dez’s freshman year talking to some buddies and asking them what number they wanted Dez to wear. Before I could even finish the question, my buddy Sheets just screams, “he has to wear No. 1!!”Look good play good. I don’t know, but I do know that McCleskey has become the sort of underrated offensive weapon on this team. We focus so much on James Washington and the running back situation and Barry Sanders and Marcell Ateman’s injury that we forget about the guy who did stuff like this as a freshman last year.“We have to find ways for him to touch the ball,” said Mike Gundy recently. “He is explosive. He is competitive. He is a year into it now. This year’s [offense] could be a little more specific by player than what we have been in the last 10 years. Meaning that, we may have certain guys skill wise that are able to execute certain plays that we need to try and get those called to get the ball to certain guys in order to give us the best chance to be successful on offense.”That’s probably a good idea. McCleskey, who is up over 20 pounds (hashtag Glass), only had 409 all-purpose yards in 2015, but he also only touched the ball 33 times on offense. I think that probably doubles this year. At least. McCleskey is explosive and can run away, and he’s the rare sophomore with 13 games under his belt.Awesome photo here after Jalen McCleskey’s punt return TD. (via @osuathletics) pic.twitter.com/hQUS3eEGcx— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 1, 2015“Well, he is a good player,” said Gundy of McCleskey’s pedigree (his father played in the NFL). “It is like anything else, horse racing and whatever.”Pause. The man with the mullet said “horse racing and whatever” when talking about maybe his most dynamic player. Amazing.“The history says that if their pedigree is good, then there’s a good chance that that can continue during their career here,” said Gundy. “Not always, but it gives you a better chance. We invest a lot of time in what kind of people they are, how they treat their moms, what kind of respect they have for just the general things in society I think we are lacking as a group maybe in this country. We look at that and they certainly have to be athletic enough to play here and then if they have good pedigree, that makes the stock go up even more.”Receivers coach Kasey Dunn echoed Gundy’s praise for McCleskey in all facets in the spring.“The guy that’s shown some speed is (Jalen) McCleskey,” said Dunn. “He’s doing a great job out there. That little turkey will block his butt off too. He’s getting it done and I’m happy with where we are and I’m looking forward to the next practice.”The little turkey racehorse who will ball in a new number this fall. I’m fired up to watch him.

Oklahoma State Lands Third OL Commit in Hunter Woodard

first_imgJosh Henson is showing why he was a slam dunk hire as OSU’s next offensive line coach. It appears that the former ace recruiter at Missouri still knows how to close a deal and he is already close to filling out his 2018 recruiting class.A couple of months after a National Signing Day in which the Cowboys came up empty — signing zero high school OL prospects — Henson has landed three offensive linemen commitments for the 2018 class — Hunter Anthony, Bryce Bray and now Hunter Woodard.I’m extremely excited to announce my commitment to Oklahoma State!?⚪️? @CoachGundy @Coach_Henson pic.twitter.com/dZYOwSgggK— Hunter Woodard (@HunterWoodard18) April 18, 2017 Woodard hails from Tuscola, Illinois where the 6-foot-5, 296-pound tackle has earned all-conference honors. The three-star prospect spoke with Rivals.com about his pledge.“I just feel that Oklahoma State is simply the best place for me,” Woodard told Rivals. “They have great tradition, they are always a highly ranked program and are always playing in bowl games. Oklahoma State is just big time football. I really get along great with all of the coaches at Oklahoma State and between the relationships, the facilities and the entire program everything is just top notch. I just felt like I couldn’t do any better than Oklahoma State.”According to Woodard, he was sold not only by OSU’s facilities but by his connection with Henson.“The visit I made to Oklahoma State really blew me away,” Woodard said. “The offensive line coach Josh Henson and I have a similar background and personality and it’s just a great fit for me. It’s hard to describe just how amazing everything was at Oklahoma State.“It’s truly the best of everything you could ask for. I’m just extremely happy.”Woodard also holds offers from Illinois, Syracuse, Wyoming and Minnesota.
