FOSDEM 2013: more boring shit
Let's take a look at my annotated copy of the FOSDEM 2013 main talk schedule, shall we?
- Shit java everywhere
- Become the developer's replacement for cron
- Get kicked out by Oracle
A young girl is paid nearly $112,000 per year to tell nerds that software patents are bad.
A Red Hat employee (and former Google employee) shares delightful stories regarding the hundreds of thousands of lies per second that nerds tell each other on the internet.
That's right: exactly the same as porting anything else to 64-bit ARM systems.
There aren't any that work.
wake me up when this track gets back to being about operating systems
some nerd's blog in spoken word form
Open source challenges
There are more people's names on this talk than there are words in the title of the talk. Something about VoIP; nobody cares.
Is that a giant codebase in your pocket, or are you just happy to ignore this entire talk?
Almost the entire FOSDEM attendence will be eating lunch somewhere else during whatever the hell this is.
A security expert can't tell the difference between the web and the internet.
SPOILER ALERT: no it isn't
SPOILER ALERT: there isn't one
This guy's answer: use his pet project to install kerberos and ldap. Thanks, friend!
Beyond operating systems
Well, at least they're finally admitting firefox is an operating system.
Behaving as expected. It turns simple tasks into nightmares, and the home page conveniently has an entire paragraph about how to spell 'systemd.' Truly the Pulseaudio of init.
Ok, I want to clear something up. The last time FreedomBox was mentioned here I made a rude joke about falling asleep, as though to indicate the idea was boring. I want to make up for that now by talking a little bit about the project. FreedomBox is a personal servzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Facebook uses this to compile the entire goddamn site, via C++, into a single 1GB executable. The maintainers are confused regarding why the whole world hasn't fallen in love with it.
Because the masses give a shit about site generation right? In fact, the web world has realized that web programmers are constitutionally incapable of producing working software that won't be hacked by the first Brazilian funboy who wanders onto the site, and have retreated to bloxsom clones in self-defense.
This is a crazy person who thinks that "In-Vehicle Infotainment" is a thing that anyone gives a shit about.
Bill Hoffman wants everyone to feel really great about his company. However, they're the ones who created CMake, so they're all terrible assholes instead.
I thought this talk was some kind of high school paper they included out of pity, but it turns out it's from someone who installs Ubuntu on generic laptops for a living. So pity was probably involved.
This is what LOGO evolved to. Hopefully Seymour Papert, Cynthia Solomon, and Wally Feurzeig will be present to apologize. The advertisement^W talk coincides with lunch.
Another example of the white-patriarchal system keeping needed tools out of the hands of the black community.
