DerbyCon 9.0 – Every Beginning Has an End – DerbyCon: Louisville INFOSEC Con
What we have had to deal with on the back-end the past few years is more than just running a conference and sharing with friends. The conference scene in general changed drastically and small pocket groups focus on outrage and disruption where there is no right answer (regardless of how you respond, it’s wrong), instead of coming together, or making the industry better. There is a small, yet vocal group of people creating negativity, polarization, and disruption, with the primary intent of self-...

Real Reason why I left Blizzard Entertainment: Racial Abuse and Discrimination
I write this today because the Soldier 76 announcement and subsequent tweets I did triggered me. The reason why it triggered me wasn’t the message, but who it was coming from: Blizzard Entertainment. The idea of inclusion, of representation, and “every voice matters” and “think globally” never meant that for me and other people of color I have spoken to. Because up until recently—in the last 2 years—has the community had some representation and initiatives. But are we really represented?

The media world was stunned by the revelations that the award-winning journalist Claas Relotius had, according to the weekly, “made up stories and invented protagonists” in at least 14 out of 60 articles that appeared in its print and online editions, warning that other outlets could also be affected.

Package verification using gpg by rlidwka · Pull Request #4016 · npm/npm
It's a step towards package signing that was in roadmap for a quite long time. Since nobody seems to be doing that, I started to implement it myself, so...
For all current packages behaviour of npm is not changed.
However, if there's a dist.signature field near a dist.tarball field we're downloading (i.e. with npm install), npm will assume that dist.signature is a url pointing to a detached pgp signature, will download it and verify a tarball with it using external gpg program.

remove 'nice-try' dependency by andrusieczko · Pull Request #102 · moxystudio/node-cross-spawn
node-cross-spawn is a dependency of 2431 packages, including highly popular packages eslint or webpack-cli.
This means that the package itself should reduce its own dependencies to the bare minimum.
The nice-try package does nothing but swallowing the error of the invoked function.
It should never be considered as an external dependency - it is too brittle.
Now, nice-try found its way to be included in most of the projects that use eslint or webpack which is totally unnecessary.
Hence, I propos...

Patriarchal Sexual Law | Bloody shovel
This alone is a sign that the patriarchy doesn’t exist anymore. Patriarchies are systems in which all women belong to a man; the husband after marriage, the father before that, or the head of the household if she’s a servant of some sort. Women have this uncanny ability to make men want to have sex with them, and at the same time prefer to have exclusivity in that matter. Not to mention the potential for disease or childbirth. So naturally their legal guardians had to take care that women, i.e. their property, was not captured by other men to have sex with them without proper compensation. As such, law regulating sex in the pre-modern period where every bit as complicated, and as harsh, as laws regulating finance and property in our day.
