Why I’m Supporting a Maximum Wage

I speak on the merits of a maximum wage. The idea that if company execs want to give themselves a pay rise, they’ll have to give the lowest paid workers one as well.

Tails 1.3.2 – Linux Distribution Demonstration

Available from: https://tails.boum.org

“Tails is a live operating system, that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card. It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity, and helps you to: use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship; all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network; leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly; use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging.” – From the Tails website

uBlock: Like AdBlock But Faster

Today I introduce you to uBlock. You can pick it up from https://chrismatic.io/ublock

“uBlock is a free and open source, cross-platform browser extension for content-filtering, including ad-blocking. It is available for several browsers, including Chromium, Firefox, and Safari. The extension has received praise from technology websites for ostensibly lighter resource usage in comparison to rival extensions as well as support as an alternative to them.” -Wikipedia.org

GNU/Linux Naming Controversy

Today I speak on the GNU/Linux naming controversy.

“The GNU/Linux naming controversy is a dispute among members of the free and open source software community over how to refer to the computer operating system commonly called Linux. GNU/Linux is a term promoted by the Free Software Foundation (FSF), its founder, Richard Stallman, and its supporters, for operating systems that include GNU software and the Linux kernel. The FSF argues for the term GNU/Linux because GNU was a longstanding project that started in 1984 to develop a free operating system, and when the kernel was created in 1991, the kernel was the last missing piece. Proponents of the term Linux reject GNU/Linux by quoting that Linux is far more commonly used by the public and media.” -Wikipedia.org

“Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for Intel x86–based personal computers, but has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system. It is the leading operating system on servers and other big iron systems such as mainframe computers and supercomputers, but is used on only around 1.5% of desktop computers.” -Wikipedia.org

“Founded by former Hulu CEO Jason Kilar, Vessel is a $2.99 monthly video service that’s designed to give YouTubers a more attractive platform to showcase their work on. Vessel features channels you may have heard of, such as EpicMealTime, Cyanide and Happiness and Machinima, as well as up-and-coming creators such as Caspar Lee and Meredith Foster. The service also offers prime-time content from partners that include NBC, UFC, Vevo and the NBA.” – Tom’s Guide

“Patreon lets fans support their favorite creators by becoming patrons. Unlike other fundraising services, which raise for a single big event, Patreon is for creators who create a stream of smaller works.” – Patreon.com
