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 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/.
