  • Review: Graylog delivers open source log management for the dedicated do-it-yourselfer

    In most big security breaches, there’s a familiar thread: something funny was going on, but no one noticed. The information was in the logs, but no one was looking for it. Logs from the hundreds or thousands of network devices are the secret sauce to problem solving, security alerting, and performance and capacity management. Gathering logs together, analyzing them, reporting, and alerting on them is a basic part of good IT practice.

  • Time to act on TPP is now: Rallies against TPP in Washington D.C. November 14-18

    The FSF has been warning users of the dangers of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) for many years now. The TPP is an agreement negotiated in secret nominally for the promotion of trade, yet entire chapters of it are dedicated to implementing restrictions and regulations on computing and the Internet. In April of 2015, a leaked draft of the agreement revealed a whole host of problems. From extensions to the term of copyright, confusing provisions on software patents, and spreading the worst aspects of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's (DMCA) Digital Restrictions Managment (DRM) provisions beyond the United States, the TPP negotiations were and are an attack on user freedom. In the U.S. at that time, the battle was to stop Trade Promotion Authority, which would fast-track passage of TPP in the U.S. once an accord was reached. We unfortunately lost that battle, and last month the TPP negotiations ended. On November 5th, the secret text of TPP was finally officially released to the public. Because of Trade Promotion Authority, the time we have left to stop TPP in the U.S. is extremely limited. For U.S. residents, there are only 90 days left before this trade agreement locks users in for possibly decades. For users in other TPP member countries, the time frame is not much better. The war wages on and the time to act is now.

  • From social startup to tech giant: Facebook’s CTO talks open source and global connectivity

    Facebook's story is well documented; Set up by a bunch of students to create a campus community, it has now grown into a 1.5 billion strong network, all in the space of a decade.

    Mark Zuckerberg's company now generates over $4bn in revenue, and over the years has acquried two popular web platforms in the form of Whatsapp and photo-sharing site Instagram.

    So Facebook has come a long way in the time it takes some companies just to grow beyond startups.

    A lot of this is down to the company's strategy of moving from being just a social network into a platform company offering a foundation for developers to build wildly successful apps on, all of which Facebook takes a slice of.

New Terminal App in Chome OS Hints at Upcoming Support for Linux Applications

According to a Reddit thread, a Chromebook user recently spotted a new Terminal app added to the app drawer when running on the latest Chrome OS Dev channel. Clicking the icon would apparently prompt the user to install the Terminal app, which requires about 200 MB of disk space. The installation prompt notes the fact that the Terminal app can be used to develop on your Chromebook. It also suggests that users will be able to run native apps and command-line tools seamlessly and securely. Considering the fact that Chrome OS is powered by the Linux kernel, this can only mean one thing. Read more
