EXCLUSIVE READING FOR OPEN MAGAZINE SUBSCRIBERS
This week, Open magazine bears the grave news that King Content, ruler
of the Internet, is dead. The new seat of power rests firmly on those
who will control the digital Personal Identity Information. Our lead
story, "Dante's Passport," examines Microsoft's eager offer to resolve
everyone's identity problem as a potential passport to purgatory.
Happier outlooks are in evidence with "The Many Faces of MySQL," a
report on how MySQL AB is gaining traction with enterprise buyers and
embedded partners. "Telecoms Give Kiosks a Whirl" covers a sales-driven
telecom world, where a cellular retailer's rollout of feature-rich
kiosks hinges on Linux.
