Over the last six months, I've been writing a book on net neutrality. It's
been super secret—until now! If you follow my blog, you've seen some
blogified exerpts from my first draft.
I'm hoping to publish it this summer, maybe towards the end of July. But
first, I need people to tell me if it sucks—and it might, so be honest.
That's what beta readers do!
If you're interested, give me a reply and I'll reach out directly. You'll
get a PDF of the latest revision and if you give me feedback, a final copy
of the book once it's done. It's a full-length nonfiction book at just over
30,000 words (about 125 printed book pages). I'm hoping for some feedback
over the next few weeks. If I get a huge response, I may not take everyone,
but we'll see when we get there.
For full disclosure, publishing arrangements are not final, but I'm hoping
to offer it DRM-free and with a creative commons license, though it likely
won't be free in price.
Hope everyone's summers are going well, wherever you all happen to be!
I was working on some side projects this weekend, and since I know a lot
of Pythonistas are floating around #rit-foss, I thought I'd ask here for
some feedback on a Python script I put together tonight. I was hoping to
get some feedback on it before I actually put it to use, as I'll be
running it against a few thousand files, and if I made a silly mistake,
it would be better to stop it early than to just "send it to prod". :)
There's more details about the script and how I plan to use it in the
If anyone with even a little bit of Python knowledge could check out my
PR and give me some feedback on my script, that would be very
appreciated! I tried to keep it easy to read as well. Thanks all.

Hey all, for anyone looking for a cool or exciting summer project to
mess around with, I saw this on the Toronto LUG mailing list. Seeing as
Ansible is a hot topic, maybe some folks would find this fun to play

I was talking with someone on Tuesday about a good Ansible playbook
called Sovereign that sets up Email, XMPP, Cal/CardDav, VPN, etc.
Here's the link: <https://github.com/sovereign/sovereign/>.
It's really good if you want to see how to setup an Ansible playbook and
don't know where to start (Ansible's documentation is very overwhelming).
