A few weeks ago, I read Jim Whitehurst's call to ban the one-hour meeting in the Time article 25 Daily Habits That Will Make You More Successful. Jim recommended making 30 minutes the default meeting length.

Judges and lawyers need to understand what open source software is: not just software made available under a license, but software that has an accompanying ethos.

Building a foundation for computer science for all http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/02/160202143745.htm
Computer science has become a new basic skill, essential in order to excel in an increasingly computational and data-intensive world. However, access to computer science (CS) at the K-12 levels remains limited. CS is taught in less than 25 percent of US high schools. Rural and high-need schools are even less likely to offer it. Moreover, in schools that do offer CS, students of color and girls often participate in very low numbers.

Yay, this makes (most) IPMI implementations totally inaccessible! ...but only for legit users.

Still a net win for security.
