Let's uncover another dark @Tesla secret, shall we?

Did you know all @Tesla cars run on unlicensed (stolen, if you ask @bsanews) software? It does!

I sent them this letter over a month ago... still waiting for a reply.

A bit of history:
When I inquired them about their widely reported GPL non-compliance in Jan 2017, their IP counsel got in touch with me superfast and made me a promise that they will release all required code in a month and are working on it, and perhaps 2 month tops 3/

Bir yazılım geliştiricinin bilmesi gerekenlerle ilgili 15 maddelik flood geliyor.. Mümkün olduğunca fazla keywordü bir araya toplamaya çalıştım.
Hadi Başlıyoruz!

#Developer #Software #Java #code #kod #yazılım #development #computer #bilgisayar #tool #PC #IT #web #tech #data
1-Temel veri yapıları (linkedList, map, tree vb) ve temel algoritmalar (sıralama, arama vb)

Sıfırdan kodlama ihtiyacınız büyük ihtimalle hiç olmayacak. Ancak ihtiyaç anında doğru yerde doğrusunu seçebilmek için o veri yapısının veya algoritmanın nasıl çalıştığını bilmeniz şart
2- Network Temelleri

OSI Modelini ve 7 katmanı; temel protokolleri(#TCP-IP, TCP-UDP, #HTTP, #FTP), güvenlik protokollerini(#HTTPS, #SFTP, #SSL), monitoring protokolleri(#SNMP, ICMP) bilmekte fayda var. Ayrıca ağ ekipmanlarının görevlerini tanımak ve 7Layer yerlerini bilmek lazım

We need to have a conversation about #OpenSource and equity. Particularly, we need to talk about how "decisions are made by those who show up" should be amended to read "decisions are made by those who CAN AFFORD to show up" and what that means for our industry.
The origins of the Open Source movement are rooted in equity + distribution of power: Rather than large corporations controlling both the product, the tooling, and who gets to work on either, the user has full autonomy to create, contribute, distribute, and maintain everything.
This is built on an underlying assumption that everyone has equal ability and availability to actually take part in the Open Source community. From this stems the idea of open source software/hardware being built by the people who use it. That's no longer true in my opinion.

So I wanted to encrypt some files. Thought about using 7z+password. Stackexchange folks said "Didn't review it but it should be fine. You can browse the code yourself". So I did. After a few mins I noticed they use 8byte "random" IV. Yes, half of IV is zeroes. But it gets worse.
Aside from the fact that 7z XORs plaintext with zeroes, I was curious about the "RandomGenerator" which generates IV. That's when I vomited. The first comments say "This is not very good random number generator. Please use it only for salt." It is not used only for salt.
Yes, it uses PID and time(null) as seed. Yes, this is 7zip's random generation code running on your computers in 2019. More "cursed" code below. #7zip #encryption #facepalm #randomness #entropy #RNG #crypto #cryptofail

What’s that you say? I haven’t tweeted in a few days about this AMAZING JOB w @AutisticaUK & @turinginst that I’d love for you to apply for or share with anyone you know?

GO ON THEN. A thread about our values and project outcomes! 🌟🙌🏿🙌🏾👩🏻‍💻👩🏿‍💻👨🏼‍💻👨🏾‍💻😬🥰💖🥳

turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
The values are attached as a pdf to the job description linked above. Here’s the direct link: turing.ac.uk/sites/default/…

Before I dig into them I want to give a quick shout out to Georgia Aitkenhead who wrote the first draft based on our long conversations. THANK YOU Georgia!
The values are only loosely ordered. Don’t read too much into which ones come first etc. They’re ALL important.

When you apply for the job PLEASE address the values in your cover letter. It’s an essential requirement that you have a commitment to these values.

A wonderful walk in the Lake District today, but just before my pre-dinner nap (this holiday is LOVELY) a little thread about the requirement of “a PhD or equivalent” for the job that I’m SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO APPLY FOR with @AutisticaUK at @turinginst! turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
Here’s a little screen grab of the section in the essential requirements of the job description:
I tweeted yesterday about the #FullStack requirements of this job.

It seems pretty silly to require web development skills AND a PhD! They aren’t usually taught together.

I’ve had a lovely few days of doing NOTHING work related! I hope you have had some relaxation too.

BUT I do want to tell you about the “full stack” requirements of this AWESOME job that you should apply for to work with me & @AutisticaUK at @turinginst!

turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
Here are some screen grabs from the job ad that talk about what you need.... the essential requirements.
I was nervous writing this ad. It’s asking for A LOT to have someone join an academic project for a salary of between £34,000 and £40,000 if they can do ALL the #FullStack development! There are lots of jobs that would pay you a lot more!!

The #aabill is incredibly short-sighted & luddite. Even if the AU Gov. can coerce tech companies to backdoor encrypted messaging platforms, nothing's going to stop people from resorting to using free & opensource #crypto software like @GnuPG! #auspol bit.ly/2QbxUor 1/
Popular #crypto software is trusted because it's been written & vetted by members of a decentralized #opensource community which you can't coerce. If you want to make it illegal to possess @GnuPG in Australia because you can't backdoor it, then you'll kill the IT industry. 2/
Software devs/engineers use #crypto daily to safeguard the apps & systems we code & run against malicious tampering. The #InfoSec community also needs to be confident it can discuss and coordinate responses to security vulnerabilities before they can be patched in private. 3/

I hate the certification industry, it prevents talented people from participating, particularly younger and less well off. If you want to learn online #investigations I'll teach you everything I can with live support absolutely free. osint.team #OSINT #infosecjobs
If you can get an employer to pay then go for @SANSInstitute because @mcafeeinstitute stinks of stock photography and shyster marketing. Not to mention these people kick ass. @jms_dot_py @WebBreacher @kirbstr @baywolf88
An @OReillyMedia subscription ($39) and @jms_dot_py course register.automatingosint.com/python-course ($45). These are what young #infosec / #OSINT investigators. Should be spending money on. Keeping low monthly payments allows people to get the skills while paying for quality.

Hey @CDiBona: I have a running outline of Open Sources 3.0 book. Seems to me time is right with big industry changes on horizon and 13 years since 2.0 book. Maybe we could collaborate as editors? I have lineup of #opensource folk ready to contribute! Would @OReillyMedia be game? The cover of the book
@cra @joshsimmons @CaretakerBob @42aross, @marclijour @chris_tyler @TheTechScribe @timoreilly @BrucePerens What do you think? Is the world ready for the 3rd open sources book? I'd love to introduce a chapter on the evolution of "#opensource #strategy" from my doctoral research!

Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.

Kicking off day 1 of #ODSCWest. I'll be tweeting through the next few days and pinging #GCDigital folks for interest or potential follow-up. #opensource #DataScience #openeducation @School_GC
First up: @asuonline will be hosting an educational analytics conference in March 2019 focusing on what we can learn from learner data and how to structure learning to better meet learner needs. #ODSCWest
#AI differential - being able to tailor products to specific users == better able to predict value to and from users. E.g. cost to deliver value to user vs. cost to company to deliver that value. Allows ruthless competitive focus - @DataRobot #ODSCWest

1/x Today a CFTC official suggested that devs may be liable for crimes committed using their code (suggested & predicted by @angela_walch.) Now comes the collision of (1) First Amendment rights -code is free speech (2) contract (disclaimers in licenses) & (3) imposed tort duties.
2/x the language used "reasonably foresee" is suggestive of tort liability. This puts it in @angela_walch's wheelhouse. How does this shake out? Who wins? Think about this as a fire and a doctor. What's that mean? You can't yell fire in a crowded theater because it's reasonably
3/x foreseeable that people will be hurt in the ensuing rush. So we know if there's an inherent risk of harming others, 1st amendment speech rights may be curtailed. But what about the contract- i.e. the license agreement? Most #crypto software dev is done under #OpenSource

We gotta start an Open-Source Microscopy Consortium. What a great time with hardware, software and probes becoming open design and accessible to everyone - many of it in preprints!! @seamus_holden @christlet @HohlbeinLab @florianjug @loicaroyer @PavelTomancak @RetoPaul @jrswedlow
If we organised a meeting+course on #OpenSource #Microscopy. Covering hardware, software and chem./label (how to build microscopes, software analysis/development, labelling, 3D printing...), would you come? Where would you like it to be?
Created @OSMicroscopy which will retweet GitHub reps, preprints/papers and resources in #OpenSource Microscopy. Will keep lists and moments in each topic. Let's start sharing microscopy know-how 😉

Hello #WordPress ecosystem.
I have been invited to share my #knowledge at an upcoming #WordCamp in #Africa.
Unfortunately I can’t afford the travel expenses, so I’m sending out this “message in a bottle” to see if any company out there is willing to #sponsor me.
#design
#workshop
1/5
I need to expand on this, I guess.
Yes, wonderful @yoast has established a #diversityfund and has graciously sponsored 2 of the 9 #WordCamp I have spoken at this year.
Me has sponsored all the rest, investing close to 3000€ to date.
2/5
I am self employed and a sole provider. This means that I can only rely on myself to sustain my mortgage and my living costs.
It also means that when I travel to speak at Camps I can’t work, so I am spending and not earning.

Quick Review of the #NSSFGoApp

1. Login requires phone number and email yet estatement portal requires NSSF No.

2. There is a popup display ~XXXXXX~ maybe the developers left it in there

3. When one enters email the app checks for SMS … received
#NSSFGoApp review

4. Why does the app need access to media on my phone? Why is the external permission necessary for an app that provides information? #AppSecurity

5. Hamburger menu in top left hand corner does not work
6. No way to log out of the app - so deleted don’t want my NSSF information lying around on my phone un-secured

Oh #Satoshi, I just found a new #RabbitHole! 🤯
tl;dr: #OpenSource #Bitcoin Wallets are like privately minted #gold coins.

[thread]
In a free economy with gold as the one sound money, the global consensus are the 79 protons of the gold atom. There are different shapes and forms of collections of atoms, but fundamentally, as long as there are 79 protons, it is the base money.
The raw resource of gold is mixed with lots of dirt, stone and other lesser metals, and extracting gold ore is an entrepreneurial task. Human ingenuity and labor has to be intermingled with these natural resources so to increase the production stage of this good.

A thread for the "#software is not political" crowd. Whether you like it or not, all software is political because technology AFFECTS PEOPLE. If you came to #tech thinking you'd escape having to think about people, #politics, and society - you were mistaken. I'll show you why...
Before we start, remember this as you read. Just because YOU think the answer to any of these issues is clear-cut, it doesn't mean that issue is not political.

There are people who take the OPPOSITE position with just as much conviction, and they think it's clear-cut too.
Also - as an engineer, a developer or designer - if you choose to ignore the political and societal implications of your #technology, YOU HAVE MADE A POLITICAL CHOICE.

This #WorldOceansDay I'm inspired by all the dedicated people working everywhere to understand and protect the dominant geographic feature of our planet. So today I'm going to be tweeting about just a few of those people to spread the news of their good deeds
1st up @HeatherKoldewey. Heather is at @OfficialZSL & has done incredible work with @projectseahorse, @Nets2Carpet and the Chagos MPA with @Bertarelli_fdn. Any one of those would be huge, but all three is just amazing. zsl.org/users/heather-…

Now comes the hard part of being an academic #opensource developer moving into industry. 😢 I need volunteers to take over some of my #rstats packages. I'm hoping to retain some but also want to pass on a few.

If you're interested, please reach out on Github about any of...
{csvy} is a package for reading and writing metadata-enhanced CSV files that include a YAML header.

The format: csvy.org

The package: github.com/leeper/csvy (on CRAN but needs some updates to match the current csvy specification).
{colourlovers} is an API client for colourlovers.com

The package: cran.r-project.org/web/packages/c… (on CRAN but could use an XML -> xml2 conversion and a refresh to make sure it's still up to date).

There's been a lot of talk about #electionsecurity since we know #Russia will try to hack the #2018Midterms.

This thread will give brief overviews of #votingmachines, #opensource software & #handmarked #paperballots. THREAD 1/10 #MondayMotivaton
Jurisdictions don't have 💰 or staff to buy new machines frequently or keep the ones they have up to date with security updates. There's no voting machine that can't be hacked. 2/10 nytimes.com/2018/02/21/mag…
Manufacturers & election officials say since the machines aren't connected to the internet, they can't be hacked. But that's not accurate. Polling places transmit voting results using modems. 3/10 #technology #hack #telecommunications
