My quest to become as secure and private as possible continues. Part 2 of "Down the Rabbit Hole".

As Bryan Lunduke embarks on the quest to make his digital life as private and secure as possible, he’s decided open source software is the only way.

I asked all 4 of the top presidential candidates a series of questions around technology (focusing on Open Source / Free Software) and privacy (including Snowden and the NSA).

The only campaign to take the time to write responses was Jill Stein's. I tried my best to find past statements by Clinton, Trump, and Johnson that would answer the questions.
Where the 2016 U.S. presidential candidates stand on U.S. citizens’ privacy, open source software usage and Edward Snowden.

This is an actual quote from this article by +William Turton:

"If you’re worried about anyone—especially state-sponsored actors—stealing your personal data, you should seriously consider switching your accounts to Google."

Similar good advice: PB&J Sandwich get soggy when you drop it in a sink? Try dropping it in a bathtub, instead!
Yahoo just announced that it was the victim of a devastating state-sponsored hack that resulted in the personal data of half a billion users being breached. If you’re a Yahoo user, your account may have been comprised.

One person downvoted the video on YouTube. :)

One person hates Freedom. Big time.
 
Today, I am releasing all of my books and videos for free under a Creative Commons license.

"Linux is Badass", "Linux for Hank", "Linux Sucks"... and a whole bunch of other things without "Linux" in the title. All free. All Creative Commons. And even up on GitHub.

Why? Because I believe in Free Culture. And this is the right thing to do.

More details on my blog post here:

I even made a short video about it.

I call this series "Down the Rabbit Hole". Once you start thinking through how, exactly, to make your life both secure and private... things can get intense in a hurry.

Not 100% sure where this leads. And it sounds nearly impossible. But it's important. So I'm doing it.
Bryan Lunduke embarks on a new ‘experiment in computering’: to make life as private and secure as possible while remaining digitally connected.

Boooya! Updated my Tumbleweed system here to 3.22 already. No problems encountered thus far. Really nicely done +GNOME crew!
 
It's here! +GNOME 3.22 has landed in +openSUSE Tumbleweed.

From upstream release to openSUSE users in less than 48 hours, really impressed by the work the +openSUSE +GNOME team did to accomplish this pretty amazing feat.

+Leonard König it is a good work because you have two huge projects running in paralel with different schedules and different pieces that needs to be integrated.

It's very different than when you have only one company doing development from the kernel till the UI, with all team working together and even though you still have many loose point that need to be sewed up after the release (e.g. many W$ 10 updates after the launch).

So, it's not sad, it's just life!

Linux & Whatnot - Episode 8! +Matt Hartley and I talk with the CEO of Creative Commons, Ryan Merkley!

We chat about how to earn a living with content (books, music, movies, etc.) released under a Free Culture license -- and talk about what the Creative Commons organization is up to lately.

I'm also going to take this opportunity to lay on a heavy dose of self-promotion for my own Creative Commons licensed books, comics and videos -- all of which are supported by super amazing people. Just like you. Right here:

Another question for my +Ubuntu​ Touch using buds!

Know of a good (and native) email client? There's not one shipping with the system... and Dekko in the "app store" doesn't actually seem functional (tried with multiple email accounts -- from the sound of things a lot of people can't get it working at all).

Open to recommendations! Or does the platform just not have an email client yet?

Questions for all my +Ubuntu​ Touch loving friends out there. Trying a renewed "Living entirely on an Ubuntu tablet" thing (an article series, natch) this week and there just a few things I'm wanting:

1) How do I bring up and dismiss the on-screen keyboard at will? Can't seem to figure that out... and it often gets stuck in a weird state with X apps.

2) Being able to run apps (like libreoffice) in Libertine is great... but any idea how to install apps on it directly from the device (with no need for a desktop computer)?

3) Has anyone set Ubuntu Touch to use a different desktop environment than Unity? Would be interesting to see how things run in Ubuntu Touch on this tablet under, say, MATE or something.

+Bryan Lunduke there's an app that lets you add packages to your container (or at least there use to be), I wrote about it and took screenshots of it here: http://mhall119.com/2016/05/dogfooding-unity-8/

In addition to +Martin Wimpress's way of running MATE in XMir, the KDE Plasma Mobile releases are using Ubuntu Touch as their foundation, just running a different DE on top. I don't know what it would take to make that an easily swappable option though, probably more work on the mobile version of the greeters than anybody is putting in right now.

The latest episode of "Linux & Whatnot" (with me and +Matt Hartley) is now available -- we talk about the EOMA68 computer that fits inside a PCMCIA card (and can be plugged into multiple desktop/laptop chassis) with +Crowd Supply and the project founder, Luke Leighton.

This is one of the coolest projects I've seen in a long, long time. An extremely modular, Linux-powered computing system. I want this. So bad.

I don't know why I should care about this. I can buy a fully functional laptop from ebay and use that everywhere. In fact, that's what I did.

So the libre part is cool, but other than that, why would I care?

The 3d printed laptop is too expensive for a shell.

The "micro desktop" thing seems interesting, but this is an arm device. Why do I want a desktop arm device? I can just use the laptop.

I just don't get it.

Short and sweet: These guys are awesome. They did our copper gutters 2 years back. They gave us a very reasonable estimate with no surprises at the end. The gutter quality is nothing short of amazing. They look and work great. Had a minor issue with one gutter coming loose and they came right out and fixed it up. Didn't charge us a dime and no questions asked. They even had a smile on their face. I'd love to hire them to build more gutters for us. Unfortunately their gutters are solid and have long warranties. So I probably will never need to. :)

Been really happy with these guys. Good prices -- not crazy cheap, but always reasonable -- and consistently good quality orchard grass. Plus they've always been friendly and helpful. Definitely my favorite in the area.

Purchased orchard grass from Del's three times for my goats. The first time: Quick loading of the truck, pretty average price, good quality. Not a single complaint. The second time: I needed delivery. Paid a (rather steep) delivery fee. Said they'd call when they were headed my way. Never called. They delivered the bales to a house about a block away from mine. Just dumped it in their driveway. So I had to haul the bales (up-hill) to my place... then go back and clean up the mess they made in the neighbors driveway (an apologize to the neighbor). Called up Del's to let them know and they apologized and offered me free delivery the next time I ordered from them). The third time: I called up to take advantage of that free delivery they promised me. They told me they would never, under any circumstances, offer something like that. After insisting they offered me "10 dollars off delivery" (aka "10%"). They assured me they had really high quality orchard grass so I caved and ordered. This time they delivered to the right address... but the bales looked more like straw than orchard grass. Completely brown. Very dry. Very stemmy. The stuff you'd pay no more than a few bucks for. Called to let them know, they told me that there was nothing they could do about it. So was it terrible? Not... TOO terrible. Just not great. And very inconsistent. I'll be avoiding unless they make a concerted effort to improve. Would I order from them in a pinch? Sure. But not if there are other options.
