I wasn’t sure where to file this meme and I don’t remember where I found it either. 😂

(Via +Mari Thomas )
Attorneys for people held under President Trump's immigration ban at LAX say border agents tried to get the detainees to abandon their legal residency status.
...
During those interviews, the agents put forms in front of the detainees and tried to persuade them to sign away their residency status, said Stacy Tolchin, a private attorney working with the ACLU in representing detainees.

Please join our band of warriors

It's happening!   The Azimuth Backup Project is backing up climate data held by the US government.  So far the main people involved are:

+Jan Galkowski, a statistician and engineer at Akamai Technologies, a company in Cambridge Massachusetts whose content delivery network is one of the world’s largest distributed computing platforms, responsible for serving at least 15% of all web traffic.   He started downloading data about a week ago.

+Scott Maxwell, a site reliability engineer at Google who works for Google Drive.   Scott lives in Pasadena California and in case you're wondering, he used to work for NASA and had a job driving a Mars rover.  He has set up a 10-terabyte account on Google Drive that the rest of us can use, and he too is downloading data.

+Sakari Maaranen is a systems architect at Ubisecure, a firm in Finland that specializes in identity management, advanced user authentication, authorization, single sign-on, and federation.  He has offered another 10 terabytes of memory and is also downloading data.

So far this team has backed up several major climate databases, and we want to do more.  I hope we will eventually have a server that can provide access to backups to this data, and I hope we can provide proof that these backups correctly match the original data.  

Some people on our team know how all this stuff works; I'm just the dumb figurehead whose job is to help organize things.  My next job will be to do a Kickstarter campaign to get money for the data storage and a server.

If you're curious what we're doing, check out this blog article:

If you've got serious computer skills and want to help save climate data, we could use your help - drop me a line, either here or (better) on that blog page!
