. Good news is we still have GitLab and BitBucket.

We can only hope MS do something useful with the platform, I'm not sure how they will monetise this particular resource but they must have something in mind.

It's a real shame. I use GitHub every single day as part of my main job and I use it for my own business too. I am really quite afraid of what Microsoft is going to do with it, GitHub has been losing money for quite some time and I am sure Microsoft will attempt to monetise it further than GitHub already has.

I fear it will become like SourceForge. Good news is we still have GitLab and BitBucket. Both of which are growing in momentum even before this news.

WinMx World News / Github Falls Into MicroSofts Clutches

The lure of easy money eh folks  :/

Microsoft has announced it is to acquire the code-sharing site Github.
Github, based in San Francisco, is an online platform that allows coders to collaborate with each other on their work.
Microsoft said it was paying $7.5bn (£5.6bn) in stock to achieve the deal, which is due to be completed before the end of the year. It said Github would continue to operate independently.

One of the beneficiaries of the deal is the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, it took a $100m stake in the business six years ago - its biggest single investment at that time.
"Where [others] saw us 'overpaying', we saw a once-in-a-decade company," blogged its partner Peter Levine.
"Modern programming is about assembling code... as well as writing it, and code tends to belong in one place where it's easy to access and that place was, is, and will be Github.


This reminds me of the facebook scam, the users add the value by their contributuions and the money makers sell their backsides from under them. Unfortunately we see the same pattern again and again, when will any platforms users wake up to being exploited in this way  ? Have folks forgotten they are the real assets on sale not the corporate name and share price.

Prepare to be "assembled"  :ugly:

Bit of a low blow that don't you think?

its a low blow to your police that go after low hanging fruit on youtube for 'thought crime' but are literally afraid for their lives to enter what are essentially 'no go' zones in london and elsewhere due to immigration...

I live in London, no such places exist.

But based on you bringing up this no-go zone thing I think I know where you're getting your facts so there's no point going on as you can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.

To clear up a small point here before its relevance is lost in time:

The fellow Dankula lives and was prosecuted in Scotland that yes is part of the UK but does have its own independent judiciary and laws that do not mirror those in the uk exactly, I point this out since its not really fair to blame the folks in the rest of the country for laws and the political will to prosecute the chap on those of us outside Scotland.

i low blow your governments out of a fear and concern for its people... i am not attacking its people...

as for googles policies... well ... thats a mess we are battling very hard over here... google has gone as far as to not hire white or asian men in favor of women and other races because they want to be 'politically correct' and have a 'diverse' workforce... there are a lot more problems with youtube than demonetization...  when google takes down videos for being 'bad' thats one thing... its their platform after all, doesnt mean we wont fight it, but it is theirs... but when the police get involved thats a whole other problem that should have never happened in the first place since it was apparently OK with youtube to have these videos online....

thats the point im trying to make... your police go after its own citizens for 'bad jokes' yet cant stop acid attacks in the streets... its not only an embarrassment but something to be very concerned about since it seems they are not really doing that great of a job... so news articles like this just piss me off because its not even remotely what i would call an effective use of the police force...

from the article;

Pressplay, a company that promotes drill music videos, said on its Instagram page that police had "forced" YouTube to take some clips down because of "what's happened lately".

But the same post said the clips "will probably be back up in the next few weeks".
emphasis mine

once on the internet always on the internet... we all know that here... ...now get your police some better weapons, body armor, and training so i dont have to hear of another person across the pond getting thrown off a roof, blinded by acid, or blown up while taking the train to work...

and before you ask, yes, i would be just as pissed at US police if they pulled this kind of crap instead of actually 'policing' and would make quite the stink of it...

Each group of citizens around the world ask their leaders for social changes that are important to them and based on these wishes a govt will select some that they feel will gain them popularity and further support, things are ciearly different in the US and the UK and so it should be.

Policies of the police are substantially directed from central govt and reflected in most communities simply because they police by consent, if the police feel theres a problem its likely that its been previously documented as such and in such a case the ideals of UK society trump those of what other countries may say about a given situation, theres much that local citizens will hate about their neighbours local decisions but lets be positive and see that as a strength of diversity rather than us all marching to one drumbeat, there is no perfect society and the constant regional tweaking often helps to define a more commonly supported generality.

I dont support wanton violence nor deprivation that sparks the mindset often seen in those proffering violence, leaving some space in life for the next persons wishes ensures we treat each other fairly and with respect, like the uk or not its your choice, conversely our laws to protect as many folks as possible  from the propagation of conceptual material promoting a disrespect for the lives of fellow human beings that may spur some emotionally unstable folks to enact violent activity are our choice, its not perfect but its better than the alternative of sitting by and picking up the damaged lives.

as for youtube age verification? thats not and never should be their place... nor should it be the governments responsibility to hide 'bad things' from your kids online... but thats my take on it... im just glad i dont live in the UK...

Bit of a low blow that don't you think? - YouTube removes plenty of American content from YouTube that they deem not age appropriate. They also demonetise many channels that show guns or how to clean and operate guns safely because it doesn't fit their ideology.

YouTube != Government.
