A regularly published podcast by a self-described hacker, curmudgeon and hacktivist about the practice and profession of programming drawing on over a decade of professional experience and a lifetime spent hacking, the intersection of politics and society with technology and anything else clever, elegant or funny that catches my mind as a die hard technology geek.

    This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. I spend some time discussing my current thoughts on my approach to the podcast, including more extemporaneous speaking, streamlining the recording of each episode, and stronger overlap in content between the podcast and the blog as my sense is that not many people necessarily follow both. I mentioned how you can still follow the news I read daily. You can subscribe to my RSS feed of interesting stories if you want or just follow me on Twitter. For the bulk of this episode, I provide some more context around two recent essays. I read “Touching Earth” about changes in my professional life. I read “Little Acorns” which I hope sheds light on my state of mind in the last year and some discusses some ways I hope to move forward. You can grab the flac encoded audio from the Internet Archive.

    TCLP 2014-01-26 A Failure of Leadership (Comment Line 240-949-2638)

    This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. One of the reasons for the long delay was work related, focusing on the 1.0 release of the Commotion wireless project. Also work related and upcoming, I may be able to make it out to either LibrePlanet or RightsCon in March. If you want to hear from me, regardless of the length of pauses between episodes, check out the Libation Liberation Front. The hacker word of the week is frob. The feature this week is a consideration on how at least part of the problem with the state of inclusion and diversity in technology is due to a failure in leadership. This draws on some of the discussion following the episode on meritocracy, especially encouragement from Kevin who is working on the documentary, Transgeek. Here is a write up of the problematic demo at Disrupt, Andrea Peterson’s discussion of Dickinson’s Twitter feed, and some food for thought on soft power.
