Anyone else going to #OhioLinuxFest ?
Huh. Part of me wonders how close to the true history this film will get...https://twitter.com/billgates/status/1167097669405167616 …
Kaspersky AV injected unique ID that allowed sites to track users, even in incognito mode
An experienced dev would tell you why antivirus is a bad idea. It boils down to 2 things:
Giving a non-local/foreign program full control of system resources
Reacting to an infection after it has already accessed the system.
In schools here, it is taught antivirus are a vital service in operating systems and are built-in. (I think they mean firewalls)

https://www.localtechheroes.org/home - Some people I met today who are trying to do good with good stuff.
And they us LulzBots!
I can't speak for the rest of the @linuxjournal archive, but I own the decade+ worth of articles I wrote. A lot of them are just as relevant today (I refer to them myself quite often). Would anyone be interested in some kind of "Best of Hack and /" polished and updated compilation?
I want to start an educational hackerspace to help poor people in my city, specifically a neighborhood that is being actively gentrified with local government money (Franklinton neighborhood, Columbus, OH). Obstacles: I have no professional certifications (for credibility), no money (sole provider for family of 4, working full time + driving Uber), and no time (see money above). I need time to study for certs (I have a personal roadmap) and enough money to take care of home and startup seed.
So I just watched this and thought it looked interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2rG4Dg6xyI
With that in mind - what is your dream? What are your obstacles?
How can you help someone else's dream?
I'll leave mine in a reply below.
