I am using figshare since one month and I am already loving it. It is currently hosting an appendix for a research paper (in press), a completely open-access paper, and the sources of a software program.
In the last two days, I compiled a list of Open Access (i.e., DOAJ-listed), peer-reviewed journals in Software Engineering and Information Systems. It required quite some effort to build this comparison. Since figshare also hosts datasets, why not publishing it and tuning it into opendata? So I uploaded it.
Maybe someone else finds it useful. Maybe somebody even does some research employing that data. In that case, the dataset becomes fully citable.

Similarly to the Entrepreneurship Evening, we are organizing a show-off event for the end of this year’s Software Factory course.
Software Factory is a special course at the Faculty of Computer Science, Free University of Bozen/Bolzano, in which students coming from all University Faculties develop a working software prototype for an existing customer. The course lasts only 7 weeks and is in collaboration with other Software Factories around Europe – e.g., University of Helsinki.
The event will be held Thursday 23/05/2013, 18:00 at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. For more information, please click the post title.
I’ve just uploaded to figshare a Doctoral Symposium paper to be presented at PROFES 2013 conference.
The document summarizes my first four months of PhD research. It proposes a research design towards a theory on creativity in software development.
This paper is the final version, after peer review. As I hold the copyright of the paper, this is my first truly open-access publication.
The paper will be presented at:
14th International Conference on Product-Focused Software Process Improvement (PROFES 2013), Doctoral Symposium, 12 June 2013, Paphos, Cyprus.
Please add the previous details when referencing this paper.
This publication should receive an ISBN number. If any, this description and the file will be updated.

You might want to disable Unity built-in 3-fingers and 4-fingers multitouch handling. Maybe you do not like how the touchpad/trackpad gestures are handled in Unity, or you just want to install Touchégg.
I have just updated my post to setup OS X-like multitouch gestures for Macbook Pros running Ubuntu. It should now work for any modern Ubuntu release, from 12.10 to the latest 13.04 Raring Ringtail. In order to disable the arbitrary default multi-touch gestures on any laptop, follow the instructions in section 2, Disable Unity built-in gestures.

SematAcc v1.0.0 was out only 3 days ago and Meteor people were already able to make it obsolete.The cutting-edge Meteor v0.6.0 adds several interesting features up to break SematAcc. It also broke one of SematAcc employed libraries, RGraph.
SematAcc v1.1.0 is already out to fix that. It runs the latest RGraph stable release and it is compatible with Meteor v0.6.0.
It is a pleasure for me to announce a stable public release of SematAcc – the SEMAT Essence Accelerator. SematAcc is a web positioning system for SEMAT Essence Theory of Software Engineering. It provides practical ways to learn the Essence theory, as it enables a web positioning system to represent a software system status using [...]
