S4:E3 - Basecamp Backlash, Remote Work Harassment, Linux Kernel Submission Ban, and Crypto Miners Killing Free CI
In this episode, we talk about the problematic blog post put out by Basecamp CEO and Co-founder Jason Fried, and we also get into how crypto currency miners are killing free CI. Then we chat with Hector Monsegur, security researcher and former blackhat hacker, about how University of Minnesota security researchers submitted security vulnerabilities to the Linux kernel to show flaws in the approval process leading to a call for a ban on anything submitted by umn.edu emails. Finally, we speak with McKensie Mack, founder & CEO of MMG and a co-author of a report put out by the non-profit, Project Include, about how remote work is leading to more gender and racial harassment at tech companies.Show Notes DevDiscuss (sponsor) CodeNewbie (sponsor) Scout APM (sponsor) RudderStack (sponsor) Changes at Basecamp What really happened at Basecamp An Open Letter To Jason and David Crypto miners are killing free CI Remote work since Covid-19 is exacerbating harm: What companies need to know and do University of Minnesota banned from contributing to Linux kernel Hector X.
