Submission + - Heartland Doc likley a fake (wattsupwiththat.com)

IIJamesII writes: Andrew Revkin, one of the first to publicly post documents leaked from the Heartland Institute, before confirming their authenticity, admits that they may have been altered or faked. http://blog.heartland.org/2012/02/andrew-revkin-finds-journalism-religion-after-posting-fraudulent-document/

Interestingly, Revkin refused to publish the climategate emails because he said he respected privacy.

Submission + - Short interview with kernel.org's Warthog9 (intel.com)

An anonymous reader writes: After the events of last year, kernel.org needed to redo their infrastructure. Intel was proud to help out and provide all new Intel® Ethernet X520 adapters to the kernel.org team. Team member John 'Warthog9' Hawley was kind enough to spend a few minutes answering some questions for us and I figured I’d share his answers.He shares some little known details about the kernel.org infrastructure that we all know and love. And since IT can often be thankless, thanks to John and the rest of the behind the scenes people that keep Linux moving forwards. (Full disclosure, I edited the article)
