I met a fair number of cool creators this week at WalkerStalkerCon, including +VersaStudiosMedia who were there promoting their indiegogo campaign.  We had an excellent conversation about their challenges in collaborating since their teams are split across three states.  Creators like Kenneth and Andrew at Versa Studios Media are why +Jason DeRose , +Tara Oldfield , +James Raymond , and I are working on Novacut.  Let's make awesome things happen together!

This is a very good point about security.  So many embedded devices from hardware vendors are such security nightmares.  It's time to get things right.
 
Taking our future security and privacy seriously means designing future systems to be fixable. It means learning from the mistakes of the past, not importing them into the future for reasons of short term expediency - that's what got us into this mess in the first place.

There's a big debate on at the moment about whether to adopt historical, insecure-by-design 'standards' into the next generation of cloud server systems. ACPI, and the whole PC firmware blob mess, are attack vectors that we cannot ever fix. We should not design them into the systems that we and others will depend on being trustworthy.

I just added AZW3, better known as the newer Kindle format.  Yup, you now get four different ebook formats!

I did use Calibre for the AZW3 port, but needed a kindle to ensure that the conversion looked and worked as well as the originally authored epub.

Back of the napkin calculation:
1:)Typical "basic" printer driver on Windows: 60MB download
2) Linux distros ship with driver support for ~100k devices
...
If 1) were typical and windows shipped with equivalent device support, it would ship on 2 hard disks containing 6TB of data or as a download that would take many home users 2 years to finish. 

Obviously both numbers are very rough, feature sets vary, and much of this is accomplished using "generic" drivers that support tens or hundreds of devices, but I think it's still a fairly illuminating point in broad strokes.

+Måns Rullgård Oh no doubt...installer, crapware, statically linked stuff, large and unnecessary images, and the list goes on.  Still, yuck.

A neat project that's partnering with our own +Nina Paley and her embroidermation experiments.  As a proud owner of one of Nina's awesome "The Ziz" test quilts (Thanks Nina!), I think I can safely say they have some cool rewards.
Besides, open source is an excellent way to improve things like this.  Instead of expensive, limited software that's buggy with no way to improve it, we can have, well...the opposite of that. :)

Degu 0.2 focuses on API changes needed to expose full IPv6 address semantics, including the scopeid needed for IPv6 link-local addresses. Degu 0.2 also brings a lot more documentation, including a Tutorial:
http://docs.novacut.com/degu/tutorial.html

Just as REST has become the universal API fabric for distributed services running in the cloud, we think REST will likewise become the universal API fabric for distributed services running on your local devices, communicating across your local network.

We aim to lead the charge in this space. Degu is just the sort of specialized HTTP client and server we need to blaze the trail.

I'm very excited to announce the new ZHackers website!

Now you can buy DRM-Free ebooks directly from my site, or get a trade paperback shipped to your house.  It's perfect for non-ubuntu readers, and you'll get a download key which can be used and reused at any time, expecially as new updates roll out with new bonus features!
Check it out!
