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 a news cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast. In the intro, a couple of shout outs. First, friend of the podcast Ed Piskor has a new book coming out in the fall, Hip Hop Family Tree, the comics collected therein he has been syndicating freely thus far. Also an event series that may answer some of what I addressed in my NELF 2013 talk. This week’s security alerts are smashing your old phone may be the best way to destroy its data and researchers looking to replace passwords with passthoughts. In this week’s news, Mozilla and Epic port Unreal 3 engine to the browser, an interview with Alan Kay, Mozilla introduces an open API for mobile and web payments, and the hacker lifecycle. Following up this week, CISPA debate occurred behind closed doors and Project Gutenberg surpasses 25,000 book milestone.

    TCLP 2013-04-01 My NELF 2013 Talk (Comment Line 240-949-2638)

    This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command ...

    This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast. There is no hacker word of the week this week. Listener feedback came from Paul who pointed out that something similar to camouflaged links is already possible and asked again if the legitimate uses outweigh or at least change the feasibility of warning users when scripting alters link behaviors on web pages. The feature this week is an event recording of the talk I have a couple weekends back at NELF 2013. I mentioned Aaron Swartz talk from Freedom to Connect last year and Darcy Burner’s from the same event this year. More news, commentary, and alternate feeds available at http://thecommandline.net/.

    This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command ...
