Jeremy Garcia, Stuart Langridge, Bryan Lunduke, and Jono Bacon present a new Bad Voltage, in which we discuss:
- Tech conferences — which ones are good, which ones are not, and why?
- Desktop machines versus laptops, and a review of Stuart’s new gorgeous desktop computer from PC Specialist
- Whistleblowing. In the light of the Snowden and Manning revelations, is whistleblowing a good idea, what’s available to protect whistleblowers from problems, and do we need to protect against those motivated by malice?
- Miguel de Icaza, head of Xamarin and past founder of the Gnome and Mono projects, talks about why he was singled out as a “traitor”, what he’s doing now, and how to best work in the open source world
- The winners in the Bad Voltage Selfie Competition! See this forum post for more details and all the entrants
- A Bad Voltage community update covering growth on our community forum, the formation of our gaming community, the IRC channel, the Bad Voltage app, Bad Voltage at SCALE12x, and interesting post-show discussions.
