I have yet to work somewhere where the password management wasn't simply a nightmare.
Isn't there some utility that could be added to all systems and unify password management?
How on earth did that happen?
Wikileaks showed us the way. The only thing left to talk about is public access to data, especially data on people in privileged positions.
Nothing can really be done to control black and gray market data. And, little or no actual control can be exerted on the "legal" companies and practices as well. Even if you manage to hide your own data through various means, it complicates and restricts life, and does nothing about the data of the rest of the population, which affects and includes your data.
The only real secrets are those of people who can afford the expenses of keeping secrets - corporations, governments, and their associated criminals.
No, the path is now to acquire public access to data on these people.
Seems to help programmers a lot. They can publish on their own site a single set of files and specifications for all platforms to manage installation and package creation. Packaging teams can use it to make their life easier.
Cross platform is also a major benefit to system administrators.
Maybe more recognition for people contributing to open source. Scanning the web for all open source projects, names, comments, and coming up with some sort of ranking of the top contributors, based on various criteria. Something like a "open source coders rank" algorithm.
In China it is very heavy handed and abusive. In others, very subtle and well disguised. But. Every country has numerous entities monitoring what everyone does online. And there's usually nobody monitoring the monitors.
Go to a financial power center, find the center of crime. Well dressed, groomed, prepared, by an army specialists in PR, marketing, design, security, privacy, and secrecy. But it is laying around there, somewhere. Most surely, the evidence and main coverup is in the security, legal, and accounting divisions. Enron was never alone.
Perhaps words don't always mean things. Given how much of social life is dominated by lies and falsehood.
If a company releases a new product, they have to add new features to get you to buy it.
Indeed, Windows is a consumer product, made by a corporation that has stated many times it plans on getting everyone to upgrade everything fairly often. Planned obsolescence is the plan, plainly stated. Many other operating systems don't fall into those categories. Choose.
Linux sucks as a desktop os
Microsoft always does this bait and hook game. Already XP can't run IE9, and sites are stopping support for IE8. There's no option, accept Microsoft doesn't maintain support for their OS without forced upgrades, or just don't use it. There are some options.
The thing many people are waiting for I think is some simple way to stream win32 API suport to run any win-app you want, on demand, from one single box sitting on the network. Then get rid of every Microsoft product in sight.
Indeed, transportation and logistics companies would love to use more trains, it is much lower cost and simpler logistically. They don't use more electric transportation simply because it doesn't get approved for building - that's the lobby money from profitable trucking and oil.
Economics however, say that trains are actually more viable in the US than in Europe, precisely because of the long distances. And for freight, there is not the minefield political issue of taking cars from consumers, who are addicted to them. In fact most auto drivers would like to see less large trucks on the roads and streets, leaving more space for cars.
All they need to do is create a new index for import tariffs, putting China at a very high rate. Just derived the formula for the tariff from a nations amount of slave labor, world pollution index, smuggling rates, etc.
and gas prices...
and more intrusive government supervision of the internet...
Accusing is a start. But we need proposals on how to stop being completely dependent on corporate services and products, and then talking in circles about what their agendas and political puppets have fed us, via marketing and media. "Should we subsidize the army? The corporations? Private military forces?"
