Wenn ich das höre, frage ich mich, nach den Gründervätern unserer Nation. In germany ist das alles irgendwie etwas anders und merkwürdig, finde ich. Dazu müsste man ja über das #OSS und die #GehlenOrg sprechen oder von welchem germany, sprechen wir?
Sprechen wir von dem Deutschland unter Bismarck, von der Paulskirchenverfassung oder doch dem GG? Von der Weimarer Republik ja wohl eher weniger?… Image

I'm spending some time getting familiar with bare-metal provisioning projects. What's your favourite, and why? #baremetal #provisioning #oss #devops #itoperations #hybridcloud #privatecloud #onprem #pxe #firmware
I'm thinking that @dave_universetf, @mccabejohn, @Codydearkland, @vielmetti, @thebsdbox, @robbiej, @SFoskett, and @andrew_randall might have some suggestions.
@monadic does @weaveworks have a story here?

🐙Genesis of the OSS

The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was a wartime intelligence agency of the United States during World War II, and a predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).…

Other OSS functions included the use of propaganda, subversion, & post-war planning.…
The organization was developed with British assistance.

Until some months after Pearl Harbor, the bulk of OSS intelligence came from the UK.

I'm pissed at Twitter ATM. So I'll make a deal with the world, to #DecentralizeSocialMedia.

If a group of >3 motivated coders say they'll devote significant spare time to building a better—truly decentralized, not merely federated—#socialmedia network, then I would offer... write reasonably detailed requirements for the system, get behind it, and use and promote it (FWIW).

I mean a new but old-fashioned nonprofit #OSS network. The for-profit groups on offer are uninspiring.

If you are a dev who's interested, introduce yourself.
I can tell you the general idea though.

Basically, what needs to exist is a system that allows me to have a totally independent social media feed, and to subscribe to somebody else's totally independent feed, all from an app I control.

A #Jedburgh team consisted of 2-4 men: US #OSS officer, British #SOE officer, & Free French, Belgian, Dutch or Canadian soldier.

Her life reads like a spy novel. From overcoming loss of her leg to working covertly behind enemy lines for #OSS, she’s a true American hero

Some knew her as "Marie Monin," "Camille," & even "Nicolas" but we know her as #VirginiaHall

#WomensHistoryMonth Image
Virginia had a gift for languages, a sense of adventure, & wanted to join the Foreign Service, so she became a clerk @USEmbassyWarsaw.

However, while on a trip to Turkey, she was involved in a serious hunting accident & lost her left leg below the knee.

#WomensHistoryMonth Image
Virginia’s wooden leg & aluminum foot were attached by leather belts wrapped around her waist. It weighed more than 7 lbs.

She couldn’t take Foreign Service exam due to strict rules against employees w/disabilities joining diplomatic corps at the time.

There are relatively few American’s who died after turning 100 buried @ArlingtonNatl, even fewer who are female, & only a mere fraction of those who served as intel officers

Captain Stephanie Czech Rader was a woman ahead of her time

“[The #OSS] gave me a gun, but I never carried a gun. I thought, ‘What the heck was I gonna do with a dumb gun?'” Stephanie’s most valuable weapon: her wits.

It wasn’t until decades later that the details of her amazing story were declassified.

Stephanie, the daughter of Polish immigrants, grew up immersed in Polish language & culture in an immigrant neighborhood in Poughkeepsie.

She was the 1st person in her family to graduate college, & she eventually earned a master’s degree – in chemistry.

✨🧠 The ecosystem that has grown up around @TensorFlow in the last few years blows my mind. There's just so much functionality, compared to some of the other, newer frameworks.

👉Consider this an ever-expanding thread for me to take notes + wrap my brain around products. Ready?
1) @TensorFlow Extended (TFX)

It's no secret that I 💕 #TFX and all of its tooling for deploying machine learning models into production. If you care about keeping your models up-to-date and monitoring them, you should check out the product + its paper.
2) @TensorFlow Hub

If you want to train your model on a small data set, or improve generalization, you'll need to use something called transfer learning. #TFHub modules make it easy—and are available in an #OSS marketplace:

Excellent advice from @fchollet

Missing: Disclaimer: The [job] market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent. The Thomas theorem may apply.

Nikola Tesla, Walter Pitts, Vincent van Gogh, Alan Turing, Socrates, HP Lovecraft,…

You may not be that clever.
I'm not that clever, and yet, my thoughts revolve around quitting my job more and more. I'm willing to accept austerity, poverty, and misery. But not homelessness. I'm compromising, in an explicit and clear way. Do you compromise consciously?…
Life is short. You are what you do, not what anybody says or thinks. What do you want to be before you no longer are? How much of your life do you need to compromise to afford that? There are no guarantees of time left, try to cut some corners.…

Happy Birthday to Fleming, Ian Fleming: The Man Behind the Most Famous Spy

#ReelvsRealCIA Image

When #WWII broke out Fleming found his true calling & a love for espionage in Britain’s Naval Intelligence Division. He became part of a team working with “Wild” Bill Donovan to help write the blueprint for the new Coordinator of Information, which became #OSS.
