The price of victory
 
It's fair to say that the interests of governments and the FOSS community are not always aligned. That's not to say that the US government is out to crush every FOSS project or that every FOSS user is on a secret mission to destroy the government. Nonetheless, the relationship is often a strained one. So it shouldn't be surprising that the Open Source community gets a little restless when it learns that the government has its hands in an open-source project—particularly when we discover it's secretly pouring money into the pockets of developers to develop features it requires.

Let's Encrypt: The Good and the Bad http://www.linuxtoday.com/security/lets-encrypt-the-good-and-the-bad-160516142611.html he's right but doesn't seem to understand that this is all that ca signing has ever really done. Guess what, ca's will basically sign anything, and verify nothing for cheap certs.

The flaw of course in my idea is DNS poisoning... but with DNSSEC that's much harder. Honestly if DNS is compromised you're pretty F-ed.

This is truly evil IMHO. Allwinner backdoor, baked right into the kernel. https://twitter.com/DaveManouchehri/status/729453383799738369

UPDATE Here some more info, including a list of distros that have this backdoor: http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/1108-security-alert-for-allwinner-sun8i-h3a83th8/
@DaveManouchehri *The best part about open source software is you have at least a snowball's chance of finding the backdoors. David Manouchehri. May 9. David Manouchehri @DaveManouchehri. @azonenberg @jduck Exactly, I like it when backdoors are fully GPL compliant.

What do you know, give people a level playing field and suddenly a lot more women and minorities make it in.
The San Francisco-based Holberton School has found that if you remove bias from the admissions program, more women and minorities get into its software engineering program than do in ordinary colleges.
