Google Launches "Google Code" Web Site: Code.Google.com
"We Really Care About Free and Open Source Software (F/OSS) At Google"

"One thing we really wanted to put up on Google Code," writes Chris DiBona, Google's Open Source Program Manager, on the new Code.Google.com web site for external developers interested in Google-related development, "was a way of bringing recognition to those people and groups who have created programs that use our APIs or the code we have released."

Accordingly, DiBona continues:

"If you have one that you'd like to nominate, let us know via code@google.com. We're going to feature a new one every week or so and we'll send a fabulous, always fashionable, t-shirt to the maintainers as a small way of saying thank you! You can subscribe to the featured application feed in your favorite aggregator as well, in case you want to see what kinds of new software is being written."

The new site includes a "Featured Project Link," the first of which is PyGoogle, a Python module wrapper for the Google Web APIs.

"It's where we'll publish free source code and lists of our API services," Google said as it unveiled the site, adding: "We really care about free and open source software (F/OSS) at Google, and this site is one aspect of that affection."

Looks like Google News is getting into trouble though: Agence France Presse (AFP) just launched legal action to stop Google indexing their news and pictures.

Bravo Cris DiBona!!

Good luck to all at Google Inc they're the brightest bunch in all technology today...

The SEC filing reveals that Brin sold 1.03 million shares raising $198.3 million, Page sold 1.2 million shares raising $226 million, and Eric E. Schmidt raised about $65.8 million from his sale. Chris has some catching up to do!!

on AYM Network (http://www.aymnetwork.com/googlecode) it was noted that if you view the organizations that Google is taking part in, Mozilla is right there at #2. Google Browser anyone? It's been rumored before.

++++ In other news...Page + Brin + the rest of Google's high-ups this month cashed in half a billion dollars' worth of Google shares (SEC Filing) ++++

Good for them, hope DiBona got a nice options package, great to see open source paying off like this :)

The cultural significance of Google's position on F/OSS software is their ace in the hole against Yahoo and MSN. That's not to say the technology needs a hidden ace, but only that the geek appeal toward Google will remain strong if they continue to "don't be evil," the highest manifestation of that being their willingness to share code.
