Made with Creative Commons at FIL Minería
Book presentation! Again, this message is mostly for people that can be at Mexico City on a relatively short notice. Do you want to get the latest scoop on our translation of Made with Creative Commons? Are you interested in being at a most interesting session presented by the two officials of Creative Commons Mexico chapter, Irene Soria (@arenita) and Iván Martínez (@protoplasmakid) and myself? Then… Come to the always great 41 Feria Internacional del Libro del Palacio de Minería! We will have the presentation next Monday (2020.02.24), 12:00, in Auditorio Sotero Prieto (Palacio de Minería). How to get there?...
Migrated to Jekyll
I first started this blog back in October 2004. Back then, I used a now-defunct blog engine written by some friends of mine — JAWS, or Just Another Weblog System. My blog remained with JAWS for four years, but by February 2008, I decided to switch over to Drupal 5; I needed to properly evaluate it in order to use it at work, so I migrated my blog to use Drupal instead. And behold! You can still look at my half-decent and quite long (and specific to my site) JAWS to Drupal 5 migration script! The upgrade to Drupal 6...
GR vote — init systems
For Debian followers, it should not be a surprise: a new General Resolution regarding the init systems is underway, trying to finally settle the set of issues that stem from the way our project works, following the 2014-003 vote, init system coupling. Back in 2014, I find it quite understandable the project was not in a collective mental state that would have allowed for closure after the infamously long and flamey bug #727708. As others have shared theirs, and given this is a non-secret vote (choices will be spelt out once the vote is done), I am doing so as...
My greedy hands are full of books! (Made With Creative Commons) @ccmx @creativecommons @xattack @scannopolis
FINALLY! Made with Creative Commons is translated to Spanish, printed, and available! Over two years after starting the project, 976 commits, getting involved in long processes (besides the scope we originally envisioned, such as waiting for the translation to be refereed or going over two quite long rounds of copyediting), after leading a team of five translators to Spanish and working closely with a similar team that’s quite close to publishing the equivalent translation in Norwegian… Behold! I won’t get again in details on the contents of this book, as I have repeatedly talked about it in the blog. The...
Made with Creative Commons ⇒ Hecho con Creative Commons. To the printer!
I am very happy to tell you that, around 2.5 years after starting the translation project, today we sent to the presses the Spanish translation for Creative Commons’ book, Made with Creative Commons! This has been quite a feat, on many fronts — Social, technical, organizational. Of course, the book is freely redistributable, and you can get it at IIEc-UNAM’s repository. As we are producing this book from DocBook sources, we will also be publishing an EPUB version. Only… We need to clear some processes first (i.e. having the right department approve it, get a matching ISBN record, etc.) and...
Presenting a webinar: Privacy and anonymity: Requisites for individuals' security online
I was invited by the Mexican Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC MX) to present a webinar session addressing the topics that motivated the project I have been involved for the past two years — And presenting some results, what we are doing, where we are heading. ISOC’s webinars are usually held via the Zoom platform. However, I felt it directly adversarial to what we are doing; we don’t need to register with a videoconference provider if we can use Jitsi! So, the webinar will be held at https://meet.jit.si/WebinarISOC. Of course, I am aware that if we reach a given...
Goodbye, pgp.gwolf.org
I started running an SKS keyserver a couple of years ago (don’t really remember, but I think it was around 2014). I am, as you probably expect me to be given my lines of work, a believer of the Web-of-Trust model upon which the PGP network is built. I have published a couple of academic papers (Strengthening a Curated Web of Trust in a Geographically Distributed Project, with Gina Gallegos, Cryptologia 2016, and Insights on the large-scale deployment of a curated Web-of-Trust: the Debian project’s cryptographic keyring, with Victor González Quiroga, Journal of Internet Services and Applications, 2018) and presented...
DebConf19 Key Signing Party: Your personalized map is ready!
When facing a large key signing party in a group, even a group where you are already well socially connected in, you often lose track whom you have cross-signed with already, who is farther away from you (in the interest of better weaving the Web of Trust)… So, having Samuel announce the DebConf19 KSP fingerprints list, I hacked a bit to improve the scripts I used on previous years, and… Behold! The DC19 KSP personalized maps! This time it’s even color-coded! People you have not cross-signed with are in light grey. People whose keys have been signed by you are...
Updates from Raspberrypi-land
Yay! I was feeling sad and depressed because it’s already late June… And I had not had enough time to get the unofficial Debian Buster Raspberry preview images booting on the entry-level models of the family (Broadcom 2835-based Raspberries 1A, 1B, 0 and 0W). But, this morning I found a very interesting pull request open in our GitHub repository! Dispatched some piled-up work, and set an image build. Some minutes later, I had a shiny image, raspi0w.tar.gz. Quickly fired up dd to prepare an SD card. Searched for my RPi0w under too many papers until I found it. Connected to...
LIDSOL: teaching privacy and anonymity concepts and tools to social scientists
I have been working on several privacy/anonymity topics in the past couple of years. And I am very happy, as we just achieved one of our most important stated goals. I am coordinating LIDSOL, Laboratorio de Investigación y Desarrollo de Software Libre, at the Engineering Faculty, UNAM. LIDSOL is a very interesting and very open lab regularly inhabited by ≈7 bright students, most of them from Computer Engineering (but some from other careers in the faculty), and with over twenty years of history. And I have worked with several of them in my PAPIME project for privacy and anonymity. This...
