The word "technical" describes many subjects and disciplines: technical knock-out, technical foul, technical courses for rock-climbing competitions, and technical scores for figure skating in sports. The popular cooking show The Great British Bake-Off includes a technical baking challenge. Anybody who has participated in the theatre may be familiar with technical week, the week before the opening night of play or musical.
Use this bootable USB drive on Linux to rescue Windows users
People regularly ask me to help them rescue Windows computers that have become locked or damaged. Sometimes, I can use a Linux USB boot drive to mount Windows partitions and then transfer and back up files from the damaged systems.

It’s CC’s 20th anniversary this year. And to celebrate, we decided to launch this show, a series of conversations with people working on the issues we’re involved with and excited about. Expect Open Minds to feature folks from the worlds of open culture, open education, open science, open technology, and more. Expect interesting people with interesting ideas to share about sharing.
For our debut episode, we spoke with Creative Commons CEO Catherine Stihler. It seemed like a good place to start—hearing from our organization’s new leader about her career and her vision for what’s next for the Creative Commons movement.
We hope you enjoy the show. Please subscribe to it in whatever podcast app you use, so you don’t miss any of our conversations with people working to make the internet and our global culture more open and collaborative.

In 2021, there are more reasons why people love Linux than ever before. In this series, I'll share 21 different reasons to use Linux. Here's how switching from Windows to Linux can be made seamless with WINE.
Do you have an application that only runs on Windows? Is that one application the one and only thing holding you back from switching to Linux? If so, you'll be happy to know about WINE, an open source project that has all but reinvented key Windows libraries so that applications compiled for Windows can run on Linux.

Why simplicity is critical to delivering sturdy applications
In the previous articles in this series, I explained why tackling coding problems all at once, as if they were hordes of zombies, is a mistake. I'm using a helpful acronym explaining why it's better to approach problems incrementally. ZOMBIES stands for:
Z – Zero O – One M – Many (or more complex) B – Boundary behaviors I – Interface definition E – Exercise exceptional behavior S – Simple scenarios, simple solutions
VideoFreex presents: Mountain, at the 1970 New York Pop Festival
This is not my video. I have no rights to it. I'm posting it anyway, because of what it represents. This is an entirely amateur video production from 1970, documenting a concert from the band Mountain, made by some folks who recognized that independent, DIY, participatory media was The Future, long before it was practical. "During the decade that the Freex were together, this pioneer video group amassed an archive of 1,500+ raw tapes and edits." 1500+ video tapes amassed over 10 years, all before the advent of the Camcorder. And now, the vast majority of them are locked up behind a 0+ paywall. "Television is one of the most revolutionary tools in the entire spectrum of technoanarchy" "[T]he new generation with its transnational interplanetary video consciousness will not tolerate the miniaturized vaudeville that is television as presently employed . We will liberate the media ." (So here, it's liberated.)

Dearest creature in creation Studying English pronunciation, I will teach you in my verse Sounds like corpse, corps, horse and worse.
I will keep you, Susy, busy, Make your head with heat grow dizzy; Tear in eye, your dress you’ll tear; Queer, fair seer, hear my prayer.
Pray, console your loving poet, Make my coat look new, dear, sew it! Just compare heart, hear and heard, Dies and diet, lord and word.
Sword and sward, retain and Britain (Mind the latter how it’s written). Made has not the sound of bade, Say-said, pay-paid, laid but plaid.
Now I surely will not plague you With such words as vague and ague, But be careful how you speak, Say: gush, bush, steak, streak, break, bleak ,
Previous, precious, fuchsia, via Recipe, pipe, studding-sail, choir; Woven, oven, how and low, Script, receipt, shoe, poem, toe.
Say, expecting fraud and trickery: Daughter, laughter and Terpsichore, Branch, ranch, measles, topsails, aisles, Missiles, similes, reviles.
It goes on for pages.
Originally written in 1920 and revised in the eighties and again in the nineties. Here’s a little history.
Notes on The Chaos
“The Chaos” is a poem which demonstrates the irregularity of English spelling and pronunciation, written by Gerard Nolst Trenité (1870-1946), also known under the pseudonym Charivarius. It first appeared in an appendix to the author’s 1920 textbook Drop Your Foreign Accent: engelsche uitspraakoefeningen. (From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chaos)
Open source development's collaborative innovation and community ethos have changed the world. In The Open Organization, Jim Whitehurst explains that success in open source is found by "thinking of people as members of a community, moving from a transactional mindset to one built on commitment." However, there is still a barrier at the core of the open source development model: Frequently, it lacks human empathy.
