    Based on my parking lot survey Christmas presents… 

    Based on my parking lot survey, Christmas presents are going to be mostly groceries this year and no electronics. Sprouts is overflowing and Fry’s is empty.

    In another sign just how totally broken digital identity continues to be on the web, I’m finding out that @docker like to write its login credentials to ~/.docker/config — something they don’t tell you unless you look specifically. (“How in the world does ‘docker login’ followed by ‘docker push’ work?”) This credential information, of course, should reside in a client-side credential store accessible by all clients accessing the web on the user’s behalf — browsers, curl, iTunes etc and apparently ‘docker push’. And it needs to have tokens, and cookies, and passwords, and gpg keys and what have you. One single basket that we can watch really well. Not ~/.something/else.

    In doubt, look at the systemd source code and you shall find. (the capabilitites systemd-networkd needs to run in a @docker container.)

    Fiat is an exotic vehicle according to the @expedia car insurance T&C. Ahem. What?

    Today’s gotcha: you cannot run avahi-daemon on a Linux host and in a container at the same time with default settings. Why? avahi-daemon sets default kernel limit rlimit-nproc=3, and starts two processes. This limit is per kernel, not per container/host. So: the second process won’t run and fails with a “chroot.c: fork() failed: Resource temporarily unavailable”. Rather incomprehensible … remedy: increase the number in the settings file.

    Notes from #indiwebcamp. Value proposition:
    1. control your own identity by using your own domain name, instead of using somebody else’s (e.g. Facebook). Your identity is more important and long-term than your relationship to any one service provider.
    2. use your domain to sign into websites. No need to create new accounts, new passwords. Reuses security investments of the large websites, instead of having to rely on smaller sites’ implementations.
    3. publish on your own site, but marked up in a way so the content can be interpreted not just by humans but by machines. This allows your content to “flow” to other places where others can read it in addition to on your site. Encourage experimentation with “other kinds of places”.
