A  little  less  #Bufferbloat in another corner of the net once the bugs are  quashed.

We need, first to know what the critical infrastructure really is, and where exactly, it is creaking, and put a floor under those trying to fix it. How can we prevent the next #heartbleed ?

I feel like this goes too far, being biased on the "corporate" model of software development.  I'm continually amazed at what CeroWRT is doing, but that's clearly research and beta (alpha?) testing, not trying to produce full-production-quality solutions.

But with the explosion of Linux in everything, these open source tools and libraries are everywhere.  And we have the problem of a public commons.

I like it when companies basically hire the main developers, so that they can properly focus on these projects.  But that's a hard a sell for a lot of companies (especially the smaller ones)

Besides changing a lot of passwords, you also need to check networking devices, such as routers, NAS devices, and access points. Here's what's affected and what you need to do now.

I have had multiple arguments with people that think they can fix much of what's wrong with the internet at layer 4, where I point to layer 2 as being the largest cause of new problems.

If the source is open, it might be insecure.  If the source is closed, it is insecure.

The ironic thing is what is really needed on the #beagleboneblack and on other devices trying to run debian in 4GB of flash or less - is a working filesystem with transparent compression support. But that's software like btrfs, which is a tad buggy, and it's hard to make a living on improving it.

+Shane Kerr : can you compare the memory usage of the two modes?  I thought btrfs (like ZFS) is too memory hungry for embedded.  JFFS2 is out there, as well as fusecompress.  ZFS-lite would be wonderful if it existed - they get the block-level compression just right but it takes a hundred bucks worth of memory to do its thing.

Story
Tagline
singer, pianist, guitarist, writer, experimenter, theorist, hacker, maker, faker - in no particular order, on any given day. And I also write code.
Introduction
I used to be just a geek. Then I sold my house, left my cubicle, and travelled around the world, trying never to touch a computer, but observe how they were used, and how much better we could use them... now I'm still travelling, and still without a home - but trying once again to help hold up the sky, and finish what I helped start, so long ago.
Bragging rights
can surf big waves and fix big problems, and when I can't do either, can 'tom sawyer' others into thinking that they can do the same, and exceed their own limits.
