This is the document that had the Catholic church officially forgive the Jewish people for the death of Christ.  Interestingly in it though it calls for tolerance of all sorts by Catholics everywhere.

From the Wikipedia article:
"The fifth part states that all men are created in God's image, and that it is contrary to the teaching of the Church to discriminate against, show hatred towards or harass any person or people on the basis of colour, race, religion, condition of life and so on."

While I have not read the actual document itself, this, to me, would imply a call for tolerance and loving of all people regardless of the circumstances.  Perhaps an interesting document for Catholics, those who know Catholics, and those interested in religions in general to read.

“There will be people who resist adopting and using technology, people who want nothing to do with virtual profiles, online data systems or smart phones. Yet a government might suspect that people who opt out completely have something to hide and thus are more likely to break laws, and as a counterterrorism measure, that government will build the kind of ‘hidden people’ registry we described earlier. If you don’t have any registered social-networking profiles or mobile subscriptions, and on-line references to you are unusually hard to find, you might be considered a candidate for such a registry. You might also be subjected to a strict set of new regulations that includes rigorous airport screening or even travel restrictions.”

From the same talk.

Kathy Sierra leaves Twitter.

This month is the 10-year anniversary of my first online threat. I thought it was a one-off, then. Just one angry guy. And it wasn’t really THAT bad. But looking back, it was the canary in the coal mine… the first hint that if I kept on this path, it would not end well. And what was that path? We’ll get to that in a minute.

Later I learned that the first threat had nothing to do with what I actually made or said in my books, blog posts, articles, and conference presentations. The real problem — as my first harasser described — was that others were beginning to pay attention to me. He wrote as if mere exposure to my work was harming his world.

...

I now believe the most dangerous time for a woman with online visibility is the point at which others are seen to be listening, “following”, “liking”, “favoriting”, retweeting. In other words, the point at which her readers have (in the troll’s mind) “drunk the Koolaid”. Apparently, that just can’t be allowed. ❞

The idea of one side suffering defeat while the other side triumphs is out of date. Instead we have to develop dialogue. We have to make an effort if we want a peaceful, more compassionate world. It requires education, based on patience, tolerance and forgiveness. Too often violence results from greed, so we also need contentment and self-discipline.

"In the recent times, I have seen a lot of people who were impressed by their phone 'AppStore' and other variants of this software distribution model. I was really amazed, as I have a hard time seeing how different it is from what Debian have since 1998 with APT.

Since 2005, it is even better: software in Debian repositories is signed using cryptographic signatures. So when retrieving an application from our store, there is a really good chance that the Debian community has verified that it does not contain spyware.

The Free Software community is huge, the Debian community is quite big as well. But I still do prefer to put have some level of trust on 1000 people than to have no level of trust at all.

That's what I keep telling to the folks I help installing Debian. Together with 'you should not install random stuff downloaded from a random web site'. 'Why?' they answer, and my reply, skipping the details, boils down to 'you don't need to, everything is already in Debian'.

And I am talking about Debian stable here. Users that do not want to spend much time dealing with how their computers work. Only about the work they want to do with their computers. Having a major system upgrade every two years is more often enough in their eyes."

I'd be curious to learn the actual bandwidth difference.  I bet its actually smaller than one would expect.  Debian packages tend to be much larger than Apple App Store apps are.  I might have to look into that.  Every 1 GB package downloaded from Debian uses the same bandwidth as ~50 20 MB apps from the App Store.

For things like distribution upgrades where you have tens or hundreds of thousands [citation needed] of people downloading what amounts to a service pack, I imagine the bandwidth usage is pretty high.

75 Billion apps downloaded though is pretty huge.  Even if you assume a fairly small size that is a lot of data.
