Top posting on Techmeme

Filed under: Symbian Foundation, Techmeme — David Wood @ 3:14 am

At the time I’m writing these words, the website Techmeme, which is a technology news aggregator, has the following display:

The top billing on the site is taken by a posting I made on the Symbian Foundation corporate weblog a little over 24 hours ago, on the subject of the Symbian platform release plan.

It’s the first time that something I’ve written on a blog has generated so much coverage. The powerpoint pictures (originally created by my colleague Ian Hutton) which I spent some time tweaking last night, have ended up being copied to numerous locations on the Internet.

If I had known there would be so much interest, I would have taken more time over the posting!

  2. Hi David,

    My understanding is that Symbian OS has lot of 3 Party Code in it. My questions is:
    1. What % of the code in Symbian OS is from 3 Parties?
    2. What portion of these 3 Party code has to be licensed from the parties and can you name them?

    Thanks and Best Regards,

  3. Hi Dinesh,

    Your questions about TPIP (Third Party IP) in the Symbian Platform will shortly be properly answered on the main Symbian blog.

    In the meantime, briefly:

    Only a very small proportion of Symbian Platform code has TPIP. However, because the platform is large, this still translates to several dozen items.

    Each different TPIP item will have a different answer (or answers) for how customers can obtain solutions.
