Deploying another Mediagoblin to my production server for to host music, videos, presentations etc. (not just baby photos!)
I'm on Radio Regent between 6-7pm EST today to discuss software freedom and social justice.
A TEDx introduction to software freedom and the liberation of cyberspace by Richard Stallman:

Seems like a big lesson, whether with #NSA and surveillance or #Ferguson: the authorities *will* use what they are given.
And imagine what police response would have looked like during the civil rights era with tanks in addition to dogs and fire hoses. #Ferguson
Re: #Ferguson, I can't help but think of the G20 in Toronto. What if the Toronto Police had armoured tanks, or if we had a DHS?
RT @ACLU_Mass: Video of #Ferguson police gassing @ajam news crew and dismantling their equipment #FirstAmendment #PressFreedom

Every time I get an email from @OpenMedia_ca, I weigh unsubscribing over their obnoxious clickbait subjects vs how much I support the mision
"And your name please?" "Blaise." "... ... Blaze? As in... fire?" "... Uh, yeah."
RT @elequ: Dear Open Source community, this was response when I asked (2nd column is what would you do) please RT! #djangogirls
I'm really liking #Debian Jessie, may not go back to Ubuntu. New battery, new SSD, new distro... I feel like my 7-year-old X60 is brand new.
Bought a 120GB SSD for my old ThinkPad X60 (secondary laptop). Insanely fast. Also, dropping #Ubuntu GNOME to try #Debian Jessie GNOME.
Most shocking thing re: this Planet Money episode isn't unencrypted data, but that *every* company took it seriously:
A #2014TOBCongress commissioning message from @damonowens: "We communio so that we can missio. We inhale so that we can exhale."
RT @fatherjonathan: Vatican should live stream Pope Francis (Argentinian) and Pope Benedict (German) watching World Cup Final together. Epic! #FifaWorldCup
I still can't get over this: I am in a foreign country, and I have unlimited roaming mobile talk/text and *data*. For $15. @WINDMobile
RT @thornet: Make #Firefox extremely pro-privacy and differentiate from competitors. That’s a direction I could get behind:
Popcaks on couples who don't pray together ("That's just too private!"): Share your bodies, but not your souls? #2014TOBCongress
Brings a new meaning to "spacewalk." RT @hhallam Just sshed into a satellite, no big deal #ISEE3 (via @humphd)
My #Gmail fat finger spam is getting ridiculous. Another B. Alleyne just bought *plane* tickets with my email address... *facepalm*
RT @segphault: My editorial at Ars about a misguided IRS policy that unfairly denies tax-exempt status to open source non-profits:
"Harper's bi-annual manifestations of a beating human heart are treated like the Miracle of Fatima..."
