Security versus usability.

software bullshitting / subtype issue trackers & project management 

@brennen This is actually a really interesting problem. As soon as I have time from other projects, I'd like to tackle it, to design an issue tracker that's actually helpful in getting things done.

At this rate, I'll have time on Januay 20, 2038. Probably in the afternoon, after lunch and siesta.

At my work (Freedom of the Press Foundation) we're still hiring for a Senior Security Engineer to join the @securedrop team.

This is a work-from-anywhere role that's great for folks who have worked in security-sensitive software engineering roles for 3+ years (with or without the SecEng title).

Non-profit & open source jobs can be few and far between. HMU if this looks of interest to you or you have questions about it :)

@neil Ugh. Cruelty to children makes me angry every time. And I don't even particularly like children.

@obra I would go as far as saying that if your test environment has access to any sensitive data (incl. PII), you're doing it wrong.

If your test environment has access to customer PII, there is absolutely no way you get to publicly blame an intern for it.

@joeyh If I was using a shell like this, I'd really like every program to declare what types of input it can accept and what types it produces. HTTP-style content negotiation can then pick the right combination, or give an error.

I suspect, off hand, that that would require a new shell, or a changes to it.

Since I now have a PhD-in-hand, I'm on the job market!

Skills: Art history & archaeology, digital humanities experience! Teaching! Intro-to-programming workshops! Programming in python, Racket, HTML, CSS! Open Access, FOSS connections, community management!

You can hire me!

"What is it like, being a time traveller?"
"Of course, you must be very careful you don't do anything in the past that changes the future."
"Of course."
"But going to the past really reminds you of all the great things we have now, like chocolate, or slood."
"Slood?"
"Yea- Damn!"

YAML isn't everyone's favorite syntax for structured data, but it's a lot better than random, ad hoc syntax. I'm looking at you, 50 years of Unix tradition in /etc, and Dockerfile.

@jgoerzen These days I am firmly in the Keyboardio Model01 camp. It's revolutionary.

"freenode is IRC. freenode is FOSS. freenode is freedom"

reminds me of something.. oh yes: "freedom is slavery"

@brennen @Greg @jgoerzen I find myself detached about keyboard layout discussions, these days.

Ctrl is under left thumb, next to bksp.

Any is left pinky, top left of right half of keyboard.

So there.

nothing makes programmers madder than having to use the shit that programmers make for a living.
