Last week, I came across two separate speeches that were given recently about the future of the internet -- both with very different takes and points, but both that really struck a chord with me. And the two seem to fit together nicely, so I'm combining both of them into one post. The first speech is Jennifer Granick's recent keynote at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas. You can see the video here or read a modified version of the speech entitled, "The End of the Internet Dream."

In this tutorial, we will discuss the vector algebra and corresponding calculations under Scientific Linux. For our purpose, I have chosen Python as the programming language for its simplicity and power of calculation. Any Linux distribution has by default a Python editor / compiler which is invoked through a terminal window. Let's go over some concepts of vector algebra.

On the final day of LinuxCon North America 2015, Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin welcomed a "surprise" guest, Linus Torvalds, to the stage for a brief Q&A session. Zemlin read quotes from a recent article about Torvalds, The creator of Linux on the future without him, which said, "Torvalds may be the most influential individual economic force of the past 20 years." Torvalds jokingly responded, "I love open source and how all the credit goes to me," but then he explained that the power he has over the Linux kernel is just the power to say no—he doesn't actually write the code anymore. read more

For those who don’t know, since its inception back around 2011, Bodhi Linux’s biggest reason for being is as a showpiece for the Enlightenment desktop. Unfortunately, it turned out that it was really Enlightenment version 17 that was on show, and when Enlightenment moved on to 18 about a year and a half ago, and in subsequent releases, the Bodhi team began to realize that the desktop wasn’t going in the direction they would have hoped.
Computer science courses at universities are great at teaching algorithms, basic principles, and the theoretical foundation of computing. While these are essential for broader grasp of the discipline, graduates often find themselves lacking the practical skills needed by companies in their day-to-day operations. read more
We know, on the internet today, that attackers have the advantage," Schneier said. "A sufficiently funded, skilled, motivated adversary will get in. And we have to figure out how to deal with that." Using the example of last November's crippling online attack against Sony Pictures, Schneier said it was clear that many of these new attacks were the work of well-funded nation-states.
Like it or not, email isn't dead yet. And for Linux power users who live and die by the command line, leaving the shell to use a traditional desktop or web based email client just doesn't cut it. After all, if there's one thing that the command line excels at, it's letting you process files, and especially text, with uninterrupted efficiency. read more
