links for 2008-10-13
By webmink on Oct 12, 2008
Manually aggregating links for the last week:
- Anatomy of an attack: The New York Times on Solaris
Paul Murphy does an excellent job analysing the smear piece that the Linux Foundation presumably placed and shows how well it was put together by Krill. Well worth reading regardless of your views, just to see a pro at work.
- TSA Wants to Screen Passengers of Private Jets
After getting over "you mean they don't already" amazement, this seems overwhelmingly sensible. Not because the checks are any use (see Bruce Schneier's blog if you're not already aware) but because I doubt we'll see effective political pressure to get it sorted until the people who pay for the politics feel the pain as well.
- Linux.conf.au 2009 Hobart Conference Announces Keynote Speakers
I've never been to Tasmania, so I'm looking forward to this one even without the energetic audience I know I'll have.
- Doonesbury: Why McCain wants to stay in Iraq
This has to be one of the most disturbing explanations I have seen, becuase I can imagine how it resonates with a certain group of people.
