Do you know how many dependency layers are in your product?
Some thoughts about what's going to be needed for Software Supply Chains to be effective in the future.  We're going to have to up our game as an ecosystem to permit the automation of license compliance and security information, to get to the level of tracking that the manufacturing industry uses today.   Does anyone know of other starting points that are being effectively used in practice that should be included?
Sharing accurate licensing and security information through the software supply chain needs to be the goal. Ensuring that the information can be automatically collected and accurate is necessary to keep up with the rate of change in software development.

A good reason to never ever by Samsung products....
> The Samsung SGR-1 patrols the border between North and South Korea, called the Demilitarized Zone. South Korea installed the stationary robots, developed by Samsung Techwin and Korea University, according to NBC News.

Roff said the SGR-1 was initially built with the capability to detect, target, shoot intruders from two miles away.

"In that sense, it's a really sophisticated landmine, it can sense a certain thing and can automatically fire," she said.

But Peter Asaro, the co-founder of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, told NBC News that South Korea received "a lot of bad press about having autonomous killer robots on their border."

Now the SGR-1 can now only detect and target but requires a human operator to approve the kill shot.

On 9 July 2015, the European Parliament might destroy photography. The Freedom of taking photos in public places is under attack. Until now, in most countries in Europe you were safe to take and publish photographs that are taken from public ground – This is called Freedom of Panorama. When you were on vacation, you could take a photo from the London Eye and share it with your friends on Facebook*. If someone wanted to pay you for using this p...

If someone forces me to use flash, I consider it an attack.
the web works fine without flash installed, as i have been experiencing the last years. if a site doesnt work, they dont want you to see their content - remember, there are always alternative pages. there are. =)

Why do we allow this shit to happen?
"Docker is the new 'curl | sudo bash'"
None of these "fancy" tools still builds by a traditional make command. Every tool has to come up with their own, incomptaible, and non-portable "method of the day" of building. And since nobody is still able to compile things from scratch, everybody just downloads precompiled binaries from ...

it's not really at the standardization stage, but I think it's a good thing overall that people are exploring alternatives. CMake seems to be getting a lot of adoption and seems a lot nicer than autoconf. It's been working pretty well for me in the contexts where I've tried it, and it does a reasonable job of supporting modular build time components including versioning requirements. It can generate plain old Makefiles or Ninja rules at the user's requests, so old school users should be happy also.

I think ROS is a nice example for using CMake effectively, and shows off the extensibility support. Adding a new RPC service including custom message wire formats for request+response is just a few lines, and other components can then use that easily.
