Renewed my Free Software Foundation membership. While I often disagree with RMS, the FSF does important work and needs financial support. Help them out: http://www.fsf.org/associate/
The FSF is a charity with a worldwide mission to advance software freedom.

The HackerOne Reddit AMA is starting soon, but you can get your questions in now. Have questions about building a global community of hackers to hack for fun and profit? What happened when we hacked The Pentagon? How do we stay safe in an increasingly online world? Get your questions into https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/4zj3oy/we_are_hackerone_and_help_hackers_to_hack/ - let's do this!

I am doing some work with a startup designed to build an open data commons to make data science and discovery easier. See http://www.jonobacon.org/2016/08/18/opening-up-data-science-with-data-world/ for details.
