With the ability to achieve a space-quality vacuum again, Michael will proceed with new designs. And that they thus will interpret the law as restrictively as possible, like a cop who looks for ways to ticket you because he doesn’t like your bumper sticker. "Mr Perens' blog post was an expression of opinion based on stated, true facts. For the past several months, I’ve been building a startup web business using the Crystal language and the Lucky web framework. Some years ago, I contributed $1000 to be one of the seed funders of the Ada Initiative, which worked to assist women in participating in Open Source projects. It’s still an open issue whether males and females have built-in biases that, for example, lead fewer women to be programmers, or if such biases only develop as a response to social signals. # Manually add a user and set their password, replace $USER below. Some states are going to wait a long time for all of the mail to come in, and may count it in creative ways (remember “hanging chad” in Florida). Before that, he helped to create the industry of 3D Character Animated Feature Film at Pixar and its academic predecessor. Open source is a source code that is made freely available for possible modification and redistribution. So, I decided to put native Debian on the platform instead of Raspbian. Your comments can help to improve the paper before it’s edited, write to bruce at perens dot com. Open Source Security, Inc., the maker of the Grsecurity Linux kernel patches, suffered a setback last month when San Francisco magistrate judge Laurel Beeler granted a motion by defendant Bruce Perens to dismiss the company's defamation claim, with the proviso that the tossed legal challenge could be amended.. I’ve been to the first attempt to launch this rocket months ago before the Vandenberg fires, a scrub of a launch at Cape Canaveral, and a scrub of another ULA launch at Vandenberg. About the worst that I’ve encountered is that the before and after functions used to manipulate data model properties and validate their correctness don’t happen in the right order, and can’t be put in the right order using the existing API, causing some errors to be set on the model before the programmer has a chance to correct them. There are a few problems in the existing Crystal language implementation, as well. Dr. Bob McGwier N4HY was chief engineer of AMSAT and a board member during a better time for the organization, and is one of the creators of Software Defined Radio. It’s unfortunately the case that software development in general and Open Source communities are frequented by males who have social development issues. The case started in 2017, when Perens posted a blog entry denouncing restraints that OSS placed on customers of its security patch software for the Linux Operating System. The first-grade teacher did this without having me examined, and if she told anyone in the school at all, the message wasn’t given to my parents. There is still a strong “segregationist South” political block within the United States, it’s a factor in every national election. apt-get install openssh-server wireless-tools build-essential bluez aptitude bluetooth bluez-hcidump exfat-fuse exfat-utils locales ntpdate fake-hwclock udisks2 wpasupplicant hostapd network-manager dnsmasq rfkill linux-wlan-ng libncurses5-dev bc git It didn’t fix my speech, but made me a good public speaker. Of those, I saw the Falcon 9 DISCOVR launch at Cape Canaveral after being there for one scrub, I heard and did not see the Falcon 9 JASON-3 launch at Vandenberg from Ocean Avenue in the summer – too much fog. That would allow him to move forward confidently in creating thrusters for our satellites. It was Ian’s idea to create a non-profit Linux distribution when other distribution creators were attempting to cash in, and to make it all Free Software. Once I returned to her class, under the threat of a lawsuit and without her willingness, she was filled to the top and over with resentment. Those who aren’t so entitled, or connected, would be more likely to give my company the attention it deserves. When I started to found a separate company, the business incubator or “venture studio” Incubator.Fund, I resolved to use rule 506(c), and not simply for the free speech advantages. But this practice has been obsolete for 7 years, and nobody in the venture capital and startup world seems to know it. Two new directors were elected, but the then-incumbent board has never allowed them to function as directors. The Director of the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance, Keith Higgins, said “one wonders why the new Rule 506(c) exemption has not caught on more widely with issuers who have long clamored for the general solicitation ban to be lifted.” There is the additional requirement of validation, with its increased paperwork load on prospective investors, but the effect of this is reduced by using third party validation companies that shield those documents from view, even by the fund that requested validation. If AMSAT members send additional new directors to the board, they will break this logjam, because there will be enough new directors to call a board meeting. Such forms of outright cheating will definitely trigger rioting. Ian Murdock was best known as the creator of Debian. Bloggers have placed their work under Attribution Share-Alike and other restrictive licenses to prevent their work from being cloned improperly by unscrupulous people on the net, mostly search-engine-optimization scams. Due to his shoestring budget of literally pocket money – he has no significant funding and works on his own time – Michael’s work has been plagued by failures of his roughing pump. Create a supplementary Debian repository for this work. Bob is the best choice to lead a new effort to go back to high-earth orbit with satellites that mix simple and accessable analog communications with innovative digital ones. Michael Bretti is designing electric thrusters so that Amateur and Educational microsatellites can maintain or change their orbits. The big software company’s code wasn’t under any sort of share-alike license, and thus they were probably infringing on the blog author, and my customer was at risk of being a contributory infringer when it re-distributed this file. We’d have a nicer name for it today. But I am also subject to ageism, and most bigots do not consider me to be “white” because of my ethnic Jewish origin. I still get problems – especially in stores – because of the way I move, ranging from a woman screaming in terror (just because of the way I walked in, no kidding) to extra attention from security guards. There are many stories of horrendous treatment of women in Open Source communities. And his readers can use the code fragments he publishes without worry, as the MIT license is compatible with pretty much everything. We need to get it in front of all AMSAT members worldwide.

And now WorldView 4. After the lower court ruled against them, I asked for my defense costs and … debootstrap --arch=armhf jessie /mnt I had that for a few years and then they put me in rhetoric class every year through 12th grade. K-to-12 schooling is at least as important, and is as painfully underfunded, and as likely to let them down, as it was in 1962. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) represented Bruce Perens, a founder of the Open Source movement, in this appeal. Jeff Johns WE4B is an industrial quality expert and daily satellite operator. Below Michael’s photo is his gridded pulsed plasma thruster firing in a vacuum chamber he’s put together in his home. At my recommendation, MariaDB retained attorney Heather Meeker, of O’Melveny and Meyers, to review the license. Today was exciting because Lothar and I presented a talk on the paper at Boalt Hall, where I’ve spoken a few times but never to this large an audience or with a catered lunch. mount -t proc proc /proc For now, this requires that model code explicitly clear some errors. They got a lawyer. I missed a lot of that due to having houses in the way and looking in the wrong place. The discussion includes Open Source as one of a range of possibilities for Open Car software, but Open Source doesn’t dominate this paper. With over 40 years of programming experience, I have still faced challenges. Vérifiez les traductions 'Bruce Perens' en français. The intent of Crystal and Lucky are that the programmer would have the syntactic grace and ease of writing in Ruby on Rails, with greater correctness, fewer run-time errors, and compiled-language speed. Taken with a Sony a6000 camera with Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS lens, at 210mm. In the case of MariaDB, it’s applied to their new release of MaxScale 2.1, a database front-end proxy which redistributes queries to a farm of MariaDB servers. The cost of this is that the requirement for accreditation of investors is increased. There has also been discussion that Faithless Electors may be used. For the rationale, see my video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTsc1m78BUk, video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTsc1m78BUk. Your computer doesn’t get offended if you don’t state your message well. I could see the contrail over half of the sky afterward, so I missed a lot. I hope the classroom is better supervised today. So, we have an environment that attracts people with social development issues that might lead them to have a lack of empathy toward women, and we have some males who don’t have a pathology but weren’t properly socialized regarding their interaction with women. Release as Free Software. Those of you who are interested in RVs might enjoy http://perens.com/rv/. But I don’t believe my technical choices will be a significant problem for the business, other than requiring that I hire experienced Crystal programmers. Ambitious stuff I won’t be able to do right away unless others want to help: Take the documentation that Broadcom released on the GPU and a little reverse-engineering, and write a replacement for bootcode.bin that minimally boots uboot on the ARM without doing anything about graphics. If you are willing to put up with these challenges, the Crystal language and the Lucky web platform offer more power than other computer languages I have experienced, more initial correctness, and the resulting code is fast. cp /etc/fstab /mnt/etc/fstab In general, I approve of schemes which allow people to make money from creating Open Source, even when the cost is that the software doesn’t become available to the community under a full Open Source license for some time. Spengler and OSS sued Perens for a June 2017 blog post in which Perens ventured the opinion that Grsecurity, Open Source Security's Linux kernel security enhancements, could expose customers to potential liability under the terms of the General Public License (GPL).. OSS says that customers who exercise their rights to redistribute its software under the GPL will no longer receive … You can’t talk about your solicitation for funds where the lowly non-accredited person can hear it. We’ll only be able to solve that problem if we work today, with our children, to close the empathy gap. It also has an extremely powerful macro language which has access to abstract syntax tree nodes within the compiler. Toujours est‐il qu’attaquer en diffamation Bruce Perens, au lieu de simplement effectuer une publication pour expliquer en quoi il se trompe, c’est clairement un truc bien pourri qui ne va pas bien passer dans le monde du Libre. Vacuum is hard, and hard vacuum is harder, and hardly cheap. It will always allow copying, modification, redistribution, non-commercial use, and commercial use in a non-production context. On a street with lots of obstruction, it’s a lot harder to catch. Of late, I have come out with my discrimination story. But I remain interested in something they are not addressing: How Did We Get Here??? This was not a wise decision by the AMSAT board. With the cooperation of his stockholders, the Simon group (known for their shopping malls), Ian departed from that concept and attempted to build a business based upon a distributed filesystem that he and a partner had been researching at Arizona. This photo is from Ocean Avenue in Lompoc, about 2.8 miles from Pad 3. If you want to use the serial console, for example if you plan to replace the kernel and need to see its output while booting, you should also edit /boot/config.txt to add this as the last line: That will move /dev/ttyAMA0 to the serial0 alias and I/O pins 14 and 15 instead of /dev/ttyS0. Profit! The solution so far, because we just can’t spend the money to have good primary schools, is to take away learning days to do testing and penalize the schools whose students test poorly. My program has two models: Manufacturer and Product. My theory is that in preschool through high school, we didn’t teach those individuals how to have healthy friendships and mutually respectful social interaction with women, and that they ended up having very little empathy for women. So, if you wonder why some of those students with darker skin don’t do as well, when they seem to be given the same school opportunities as you, it’s because they don’t really have the same opportunities at all. Otherwise, it doesn’t. In the words of SEC, the JOBS act “is intended, among other things, to reduce barriers to capital formation, particularly for smaller companies.” Enacted in 2013 as rule 506(c) of Regulation D, it allows solicitations of capital that are exempted from reporting requirements similarly to rule 506(b), but “general solicitation” that is visible to un-accredited people is allowed, including advertising of the solicitation. chroot /mnt Why is software a comfortable world for people with social development issues? It just waits until you write it correctly. The new directors, Michelle Thompson W5NYV and Patrick Stoddard WD9EWK were vocal critics of the AMSAT leadership before they ran for office. But you get ahead by innovating! http://perens.com/static/FAA/FAA_SpaceX_1.pdf. What follows contains a lot of copying of files that should be replaced with .deb packages in a special supplementary archive which is installed along with Native Debian. I first encountered rule 506(c) after I had been a partner at OSS Capital for a year. This is exciting for me, as it’s my first formally published law paper, and of course I’m not a lawyer. The licensor chooses the license which is transitioned to, the date of the transition, and the limitation. So, this is the second launch viewing attempt to actually work out, and viewing launches can be really disappointing. So, I hope we fix the police and other adult prejudice issues. It provides the right to copy, modify, create derivative works, redistribute, as long as the "additional rights" parameters are met. I’ve been following Michael’s work for about a year, and this is a tremendously important project for Amateur and Educational satellites. Bruce Perens. The BSL is a non-Open-Source license which transitions into an Open Source license after a delay. The failure of the recent grocery store stock-pilers is not only that they bought at the last minute when resources were scarce for everyone, but that they did not plan in advance and get what they would need, when resources were not scarce. This means that startups and venture funds are under severe restrictions of their speech by SEC. But violence may occur anywhere. While today handicapped students have Individualized Education Plans, and Accommodations that help them, nothing like that existed back then. Last year, Bruce Perens K6BP wrote to you to recommend the election of new directors to the AMSAT board, to remedy severe problems with the organization. A side-effect of this is that Bluetooth is disabled, because /dev/ttyAMA0 was dedicated to the Bluetooth HCI (Host-Controller Interface) on Pi 3. In doing so, I wanted to have a path to a clean and current distribution with as little non-free content as possible. I was the creator of the Open Source Definition, the rules for Open Source licensing which OSI still uses. So we integrated the schools. All you really know when someone says Creative Commons is that you have the right to read it. The canonical version of this document is at http://perens.com/static/AMSAT/Election2020.html . Michael has so far created several working thruster designs, as Open Source Hardware. To an extent, the combination achieves this. Toujours est‐il qu’attaquer en diffamation Bruce Perens, au lieu de simplement effectuer une publication pour expliquer en quoi il se trompe, c’est clairement un truc bien pourri qui ne va pas bien passer dans le monde du Libre. Bruce Perens (né vers 1958) est un ancien leader du projet Debian, le premier à succéder au fondateur Ian Murdock, et un cofondateur de l'Open Source Initiative.Il est détenteur de la marque Open source Initiative. Don’t attempt to get Debian to accept it at this time, make the whole thing work first and then once it’s stable ask some nice DD to move it over. Finally, there an innuendo that officers and staff within SEC don’t actually like 506(c), and objected to its passage as law. The impetus for this choice was the power of the Crystal language and the potential of the Lucky framework built upon it to result in a more correct implementation. But because of the awful state of the market (at this writing), I have to sweeten the pot: those bootstrap investors will be offered a portion of the general partner for taking the risk at the worst of times. The power of Crystal’s macro language means that it is used extensively in packages as powerful as the Lucky web platform. I don’t know if there is anything that the compiler developers can do to improve error messages regarding macro expansions. But without rule 506(c), I doubt we’d have a chance to find them. CC Attribution Share-Alike isn’t the right license for that purpose. In practice, their lawyers tell them not to publicly discuss anything connected with a fund-raise, or even that their fund exists. And this new one. Achieving good error reports for Lucky may require manually-added code to more tightly check the arguments to every macro. Being responsible means that people need to be able to take care of themselves in a disaster, without being a burden to government resources that should go to those more in need, or will be completely overwhelmed. If you buy a BMW, will the autonomous driving computer always be from BMW, or can they be aftermarket devices that connect through Open Standards, creating a competitive market? Même s'il lui cire les pompes (funèbres), il n'a aucune crédibilité lorsqu'il conclut qu'il est mort d'une maladie mentale. Back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, the United States started to address the problem that White people didn’t grow up with much empathy for Black people because so many White people didn’t grow up with any Blacks around them who were peers rather than servants. Many software companies sell virtual data rooms to shut out the hoi polloi, secure data stores that accredited people can be invited to enter to view and sign documents, while the lowly non-accredited are locked out of that information. And information that would usually be given to directors was withheld from the newly elected ones. Bring over packages for firmware (put it in non-free) kernel, free libraries, pi-specific-bluetooth, and utilities. Now, it’s CC Attribution Share-Alike for the text, and the MIT license for the code fragments. Since the macro system is a code transformation machine, its arguments are not naturally as tightly typed as the rest of the Crystal language. Remember that DHS says, officially, that domestic white supremacists are the greatest danger to the homeland. Shhhhh! So far, I have mostly got through the part introducing the Launch Observer. apt-get install debootstrap Bruce Perens lawsuit Last year, Open Source Security and its CEO, Bradley Spengler, brought suit against me for defamation and related torts regarding this blog post and this Slashdot discussion. The largest one that I have faced is that the union type system, which allows one to declare a type as a collection of other types, does not work as expected under the hood. Every time I interacted with her, she explained to me, in front of the other children, that I did not belong in her class. Even SEC does not understand why VCs and startups do not use it more. Lots of people today meet the standards for accreditation, but their money isn’t currently being utilized effectively, because they aren’t in investment networks with the active angels and VCs. The license text will be inviolate and the only additional terms allowed are grants of rights. Hopefully, other bloggers will see this and make sure their code fragments are licensed appropriately. If you are in a hurry, or don’t have the chops to figure out cryptic errors, it’s not time for you to use Crystal and Lucky yet. Bruce Perens (born around 1958) is an American venture capitalist, computer programmer and advocate in the free software movement. Rule 506(c), to date, is mostly used by real estate funds. That worked out for several years, and the organization had sort of an ugly meltdown in their last year that is best forgotten. I first encountered rule 506(c) after I had been a partner at, for a year. He co-founded the Open Source Initiative (OSI) with Eric Back then, around 1962, it was not accepted that handicapped students should be mainstreamed with the other children. It doesn’t hold a grudge. To test the thrusters, he uses a vacuum chamber that duplicates the hard vacuum of low-earth orbit.
