Geek Reading October 6, 2015

We start today with a sad tale, which is really a commentary on the industry as well. At The Geekess, she relates her story about why she is leaving the Linux kernel developer community. Granted, that community is small compared to the industry, but I do think that it is all too common. Hopefully, the industry can evolve to be a more supportive place overall. In security, Andrew Barisser presents an interesting idea on confirming identity. He is using a combination of the typical public key and mashing it with the blockchain. It is a very interesting idea and I would be curious to see if it gets any traction.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
