I edited old jounral entries today... I mean I havn't used this since I was in college, but I now understand the importance of web blogs, what you do and don't say, and how all of history is caught on sites like Google and the way back machine... edited out things I wouldn't want people to see me say, killed all references to Caldera... and on top of it all... don't plan on using Advogato much anymore (I just stick to the mailing lists these days), but don't see a simple way of deregistering...

cheers chris

p.s. I think it's both terrible and delightful to change history like this...

LOL, I don't use Advogato as often as I used to... I just looked at my last diary entry and thought it was funny. To follow up on the entry, I made it through and obtained my Computer Science degree, and now I'm a researcher at the Institute for Security Technology Studies... I really really like my job, they pay me to research computer security issues... I feel very fortunate...

I find it a little disheartening how many people seem to support the Open Source Movement in favor of the Free Software Movement... It should be all about a software users freedoms, and the responsibilities we as programmers have to give the user all the information possible. If you were having a house built, wouldn't you want to be entitled to the archetectural design? Would you ever hire a layer that wouldn't show you his track records? Would you trust a car that didn't publish it's specs? "oh yeah I drive an XYZ, I have no idea how many Cylinders it has, or anything about the transmission, and I guess there is some sort of suspension, well they tell me I need to put gas in it"...

Only 2 more month til my CSI degree is official... I have some nice (gnu/linux) job offers lined up... I slept 2 hours last night and now I'm back at school... I think these last 2 months might kill me...

I havn't written in my diary entry in a while but something prompted me to...

I'm really sick of people questioning Linus' position and power!!!

Yes Linus is powerful and influential to gnu/linux, but can we all remember this is HIS kernel. He was nice enough to embrace the hacker spirit and let us all get involved. IBM and Compaq do not need to use his kernel, they can develop their own non gnu/linux kernel. How could people even say he should give way to a committee? Kernel developement has been excellent and 2.4 in some ways is revolutionary. Committes are slow, bloated and filled with political clout... Linus is an excellent engineer and a great leader. I for one would just like to thank him for sharing.

LinuxWorldExpo was amazing... I would even say Life Changing.

Ran into the guys over at LinuxWizardry, and they are creating some great stuff. Thier Magic VPN gateway, is the same thing my company, BroadConnect, is creating... so we decided not to re-invent the wheel, and we are getting out of the hardware market and into the Consulting Market (which we have a great deal more experience in anyway)...

I'm happy with the moderate success of LinuxLock... but I am unhappy with the Web in general... it's such a bad way to transmit things. I think LinuxLock should be completely ported to an XML style, and have Apps use the data... dunno, a little foggy, but the ideas are kicking around up there...
