It begins!

Sometimes I wonder how many of those generalizations I hear about free software being: too off putting, too quirky, not usable, not mainstream, etc. can really be reduced to free software just not having an ad budget to normalize and generate desire for a general audience.

"Eww. What's this weird thing?!" vs "Oh yeah, I've seen ads for that."

(Makes me wonder again about whether an entity that existed just to work with free software projects to create polished promos and ads would be viable.)

Should libraries run search engines? It seems that the original point of a library was to organize human knowledge and culture for the public benefit. The benefit has been great, but libraries aren't the main tool for finding information now. Search engines are. The notion that a library needs to be for books only is an arbitrary limitation. This oversight allowed corporations to move into that traditionally non-profit role, and I'm not convinced they've done a particularly good job.

This article is about infiltration by the UK police into the Socialist workers party.

Now consider what your chat messages contain and the fact that the EU wants to dragnet those messages. #RFC1984 #masssurveillance

"The surveillance was almost continuous between 1970 and 2007, with huge files being compiled on party members. These recorded personal details such as physical appearances, holiday plans, weddings, sexuality and childcare arrangements."

The purpose of DRM is not to prevent copyright violations.

The purpose of DRM is to give content providers leverage against creators of playback devices.

* MSRs act a bit like "what can this chip do ?"

* Not all are documented,

* One of the undocumented ones happens to disable AES-NI,

* There's a library vulnerable when AES-NI is off,

* Oops, we've leaked an AES key from SGX.

That's elegant."
