Peter Higgs: I wouldn't be productive enough for today's academic system
"It's difficult to imagine how I would ever have enough peace and quiet in the present sort of climate to do what I did in 1964."
Interesting article. In fact:
Speaking to the Guardian en route to Stockholm to receive the 2013 Nobel prize for science, Higgs, 84, said he would almost certainly have been sacked had he not been nominated for the Nobel in 1980.
Edinburgh University's authorities then took the view, he later learned, that he "might get a Nobel prize – and if he doesn't we can always get rid of him".
Higgs said he became "an embarrassment to the department when they did research assessment exercises". A message would go around the department saying: "Please give a list of your recent publications." Higgs said: "I would send back a statement: 'None.' "
Blue long topI've finally found the courage to cut the wool jersey I've bought more than one (two?) years ago.
The pattern has been drafted using valentina and sooner or later I may publish the file.
super handy fun computer
I backed this kickstarter and am looking forward to it finally arriving in the next couple weeks. (I have the CHIP board already, nice enough little arm board.)

So I've come back to pump.io! I needed an account to test Mediagoblin's federation so I decided this was a perfect time to test it out again. I left last time as It was too much to keep up my server but we'll see, how this works out.
Bits from Debian: Tails installer is now in Debian
Link to original post: https://bits.debian.org/2016/02/tails-installer-in-debian.html
Tails (The amnesic incognito live system) is a live OS based on Debian GNU/Linux which aims at preserving the user's privacy and anonymity by using the Internet anonymously and circumventing censorship. Installed on a USB device, it is configured to leave no trace on the computer you are using unless asked explicitly.
As of today, the people the most needy for digital security are not computer experts. Being able to get started easily with a new tool is critical to its adoption, and even more in high-risk and stressful environments. That's why we wanted to make it faster, simpler, and more secure to install Tails for new users.
The previous process for getting started with Tails was very complex and was problematic for less tech-savvy users. It required starting Tails three times, and copying the full ISO image onto a USB stick twice before having a fully functional Tails USB stick with persistence enabled.
This can now be done simply by installing Tails Installer in your existing Debian system, using sid, stretch or jessie-backports, plugging a USB stick and choosing if one wants to update the USB stick or to install Tails using a previously downloaded ISO image.
Tails Installer also helps Tails users to create an encrypted persistent storage for personal files and settings in the rest of the available space.

the last Ep from S01 is already off : it's not because you write on something that "you own it" that it actually belongs to you ... this patent thing is a little buggy to my POV (specially if you think of the 1977 year)
Or you have indeed to rely on some kind of hidden patent laws that nobody knows about ... (which is a stretch but probably not so far from the reality, seeing how the European Patent Office has total legal immunity from anyone f.ex. https://arstechnica.co.uk/tech-policy/2016/02/welcome-to-eponia-the-strange-land-of-european-patents-that-is-outside-the-law/ ... ! )
but really good serie btw... !!
I'm amazed on how you completely forget about the heavy compositing and incredible acting performance it is, on top of a really good writing !
tks for sharing !
Paracord beltI realized I forgot to post about this: paracord bracelets are sort-of-nice (but also not really usable in practice), but I've found instructions for a very nice belt out of which you can actually unravel bits of cord and use them.
I've done a bit, as a test, and I'd think I will just add D-rings to the end and use it as a bag strap (which also helps being able to cut away some and still keep it usable: a belt with a side release buckle doesn't give lots of room for size adjustment, even if it is somewhat elastic.

Pump.io meeting log + call for new meeting 2015-10-15 9AM PDT
You can read the log of the pump.io meeting we had some hours ago here:
Since time ran out quickly and lots of agenda topics were uncovered, we decided to meet again next week, same day, same time. Details here:
Thanks everybody, and happy hacking!
Here you are the log of today's meeting:

Pumpiverse community update
We just had a mini-meeting in #pump.io on irc.freenode.net... here is a quick update. @Evan Prodromou kindly joined us, and quite a few other community members, and everyone seems interested in making Pump.IO more of a community project. Here are roughly the future steps from this meeting:
- Find a community-stewardship home for pump.io. We will apply to become a Conservancy member project (@Bradley M. Kuhn is interested in Pump becoming a member project, but he is not the only one involved in that decision), though other places may also be explored (but Conservancy is currently target #1)
- We will be expanding the number of people committing to and contributing to the project. To start with, Evan has extended commit and admin rights to @jpope and myself. We will also be looking to make this more of a community structure; @Laura Arjona and I are volunteering to help with this transition. Laura also started this community document!
- E14N is looking for new homes for E14N hosted nodes on the pumpiverse. Are you interested, and a responsible person with strong interest in the health and future of the pumpiverse? We could use your help!
- We will probably need to raise funds for some of the hosting costs. How that will be done is yet to be determined.
- Since @Evan Prodromou, @Tsyesika and I are all working on the ActivityPump spec, of course we want Pump.IO to begin adoption of this standard, and will be looking towards that over the next few months. We'd like to also see GNU Social and Pump.IO talking together; ideally this would happen via both of them adopting the new standard, but probably Pump.IO needs to lead the way here and product a reference implementation to test against.
I'm looking forward to a more community-driven future of Pump.IO. Long live the pumpiverse!Show all 13 replies
I think we need a section with the people involved in the non-core code/services. I'll try to add/reorganize tomorrow; feel free to be faster than me, or just add yourself and later I'll reorganize.
Thanks for caring!
“What's involved in adopting the E14N nodes? If the cost isn't something crazy, I can probably adopt one. in order of preference: microca.st (bencook, already claimed), fmrl.me, pumpbuddy.us.
I see urmf.net in the list -- what is that one? I don't think I have seen it before.”
urmf.net ('you are my friend') was a pump.io node from the beginning, like microca.st
>> Laura Arjona:

Actually, it's more than that! It has the honor, along with identi.ca, of being a StatusNet-server-migrated-to-Pump ;)
It was migrated before identi.ca, in fact! And it's been in the "tryit" list ever since.
