@jerry Sounds good - like a modern philosophy that sells well. I loved it when Mr Durov (Telegram, VK) explained (in attractive words) the significance of having no things, properties, etc, to be a burden, to limit oneself, how "things you have will in the end have you" . Then it leaked out he has a very expensive property here, and one there, and spends lots of money just to prove he can. Things he said still *sound* good. I smile and think about them every time I mow my lawn :)
Facebook is the least trusted tech company, for handling personal data: http://fortune.com/2018/11/08/mark-zuckerberg-facebook-reputation/
I have been wondering: how quickly could a site like Facebook die? I think it could happen very quickly, if there were an alternative platform. Once the network effect shifts from Facebook to something else, it's basically Myspace city. The challenge is establishing that network effect somewhere else.
@HackerRadioShow BOO!!! Missed the show for the last month! - Good to see you on Mastodon, but I think the way you introduced it on the show would confuse some people.
Maybe explain how they can "sign up" and then follow you?
Walked around the place. Looking at the newly constructed cubical farms.
Seats freshly installed.
Plastic, boxes, styrofoam on the floor.
Found the hot ethernet jacks to the side and plugged in some more RPi dropboxes.
Folks just thought I was an installation tech.
Left the site and checked my listeners. The RPi’s had connected.
I had complete access to that location, of course.
But I also had internal access to the WAN. To the central corporate network in another city.
A flat network.
All of the servers had their IP addresses printed out on labels.
The security camera management console had each IP camera’s IP address on display.
Firewall appliances, vuln scanner appliances, security appliances, all labeled neatly.
Lot of little devices on the wall and in the racks plugged in.
I had a couple Raspberry Pi dropboxes in thise black official cases.
I took them out. Plugged them in. Left.
Got out of my car & walked up to the main lobby. A lot of folks coming and going.
It had a badge reader, man trap, and locked down lobby...
...that hadn’t been locked down yet.
So I walked through. Nodding to folks as I passed.
Went into the office area of the warehouse & looked around. Made sure folks saw me. Became part of the busy flow.
Found the server room. Door propped open. Room crowded with network field techs finishing their cabling. Camera folks setting up the management console.
New warehouse just finishing construction. A lot of different people there. Electricians, network field techs, physical security engineers, etc.
Drove up to the parking lot to see all manner of different companies and installation techs, coming and going.
While driving up to the site, I noticed the place surrounded by high fences, barbed wire, lots of cameras. It had good coverage. Didn’t see a dead zone.
When this place becomes fully operational, it’s going to be a tough nut to crack.
@tinker I really love the story you put on Tweeter about dropping the Pi's into the client site during setup. Nothing works better than the "I am supposed to be here" walk through a worksite. LOL!
im curious about your experience running it on a rPi 1, i've got one laying around myself
Goes into detail why the ruling is grossly off.
iVerge is at it again. They are to Apple what Fox News is to Trump.
the #ISS is transmitting SSTV on 145.800Mhz until tomorrow for anyone who may be interested.
