There's a simple answer to that: Get out of the Gamergate hashtag. Set up a forum or hashtag or whatever to discuss it seriously. Disassociate yourself from the absolutely awful level of misinformation and outright lies that surround Gamergate. Recognise that the origins of the hashtag and campaign aren't in a concern for journalistic ethics, but in an organised campaign of harassment towards women. Stop being a "fellow traveller" with those people.
There is a discussion to be had about ethics in games journalism, but it's nothing to do with who Zoe Quinn slept with, what Anita Sarkeesian has ever said, a mailing list (which industry doesn't have mailing lists?) or whether there's some kind of conspiracy who want to take away boys toy games. It's actually about the continued promotion of so-called A-list titles by sites simply because they are heavy advertisers. It's about how many of those games in the past got great ratings because of the amount of money big studios pour into marketing. If you want to look at ethics, that's where to start - not with indie games, which have precisely ZERO muscle in the industry.
The trouble is, I don't see gamergaters doing any of that, or asking those questions of the studios. I see them, again and again, putting forward the same tired conspiracy theory rhetoric which makes it absolutely impossible to have a meaningful debate. If the answer to everyone pointing out abuse is "false flag" or "they did it first", there's no room for discussion - all you have is a level of talking barely above that between four year olds.

Setting up Eutester in your cloud environment Once you have a cloud up and running, it’s going to be useful to run some stress-testing on it, to make sure that everything is as it should be. A handy way to do that with Eucalyptus is with Eutester ( https://...
1) Make sure you have the Google Hangouts plugin installed on the system from which you'll be presenting. https://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/hangoutplugin will help you find the right download for your distro. Install and test the plugin a few hours before your talk, if possible. Go through Google's tests to make sure it's playing nicely with your microphone.
2) Get the SeaGL account login from an op in the #seagl channel on Freenode, or have them add your Google account as a manager on the SeaGL Google+ page. Test the following steps without acutally creating a hangout to make sure you have permissions, and then repeat them when it's time to broadcast:
3) 10 minutes before your talk starts, go to your room and connect to the wifi (connection information is probably in the corner of the whiteboard). Go to the SeaGL Google+ page, https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105971622418115358467/+SeaglOrg/ in a browser where you're logged into Google+ as an account with permissions to manage the SeaGL page.
4) At the very top of the page, there's a ribbon that tells you that you're a manager of the page. Click the "manage this page" button.
5) In the upper left, directly below the Google+ logo, there's a dropdown labeled either "Google+ Page" or "My Business". Mouse over it, and click on "hangouts" in the list that appears.
6) You'll be taken to a page with a "hangouts on air" informative blurb thing. Click the big blue "start a hangout on air" on it.
7) Input the session name for the hangout name and your talk's abstract for the talk description. You can get your talk's abstract from the Lanyrd schedule at http://lanyrd.com/2014/seagl/schedule/ . If it's more than a few minutes until your talk, you can say that it starts later, and specify your talk's start time.
8) Click the big green "share" button at the bottom. If you said your talk will start later, you're taken to a screen with your hangout and a "join" button. Click the join button.
9) A window will pop up, spin a loading icon a the bottom for a bit, and then give you an interface with an "off air" light and a "go live" button.
10) On the left side of the screen, there's a "screenshare app". It's a little green monitor icon with a white arrow on it. Click the screenshare button, and select which screen you want to share (preferably the one with the slides on it).
11) Make sure your mic is not muted, hit the "go live" button, and give your talk!
12) After your talk is over, close the hangout window or hit the disconnect button in the interface.
Your talk will now have been livestreamed while you present, and recorded on Youtube for posterity!
It seems that the ability to migrate an image from one cloud to another is something many customers (enterprise and open-source alike) want to be able to do. In this case, I've taken an HVM Ubuntu 12.04 image running on a 3.4.3 Eucalyptus cloud running in M...
