Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?

* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.

* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.

* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.

* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.

I want to learn SQL seriously to make a better use of ORMs: any recommendations?

Note: I would love to read a book, but preferably < 150 pages ones.

Boost appreciated.

The amount of books I intend to buy exceeds way too much the amount of those books I can read per year.

One cannot simply hope to read GEB and SICP (w/exercises) while attending to college...

FYI I'm mostly using my new profile at SDF for now, so expect me to show up a lot less here... Or you may follow me over there.
