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. I wanted to share some further reflections from friends of mine for anyone who enjoyed the discussion of Valerie Aurora’s post in the last news cast. The first is from Quinn Norton, the second from Dr. Pamela Gay. I also wanted to let folks know that the next podcast is not likely to hit the feeds until October 8th due to upcoming travel. Stay tuned to the site and my social network feeds for news of anything I manage to pull together before then. Next week I will be in Cambridge, MA and the week after I return to Brussels, Belgium. This week’s security alerts are an NFC token for Android smartphones and hiding a phish site in just a link. In this week’s news, discovering and understanding the “anternet”, six home truths about rock star developers, 1 million Apple UDID’s leaked by hacker group though claimed source and Apple deny involvement, and asking whether robots should get rights. Following up this week interactive cubes get touch screen and Mozilla retires Firefox Home app for iOS. More news, commentary, and alternate feeds available at http://thecommandline.net/.

    This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast. In the intro I thank Donnie for his very generous donation. He has also claimed the last custom nerd merit badge begging the question of what next; order more right now, order more on the next badge would be claimed, or explore a new premium to offer sustaining donors. There is no listener feedback this episode. The hacker word of the week this week is fortune cookie. The feature this week is a rant about the unconsidered and unexpressed value of privacy. In it I mention the arguably well known quote from MetaFilter
