The Mozilla Foundation has a podcast called IRL. In a recent episode they talked about passwords and basically ended the episode advocating the use of proprietary password managers, specifically LastPass and OnePass.
LastPass has had number of security breaches over the years. Mozilla is a non-profit that creates Free Software, and even has a password manager built into Firefox that is FLOSS, and even self-hostable. Why are they advocating people use inferior stuff to their own?
@emacsen I was always surprised how many of the self-styled infotech experts on Twitter talk up such solutions. There were various demographics from academic types to those with edgy handles and avatars but they seemed of a piece on this whatever else they would argue over.
@krozruch We're thinking that if there's a week without Chris being available for LibreLounge, maybe I'll talk about my password setup. Think people would be interested?
@emacsen I think I would. But then I also think I need to add your podcast to my org-mode - done - as I haven't manged to listen yet :(
@emacsen @cwebber @librelounge So listened to the first and learned a lot. Only now getting into org-mode but it was interesting to hear it described, essentially, as ADHD-proof. This has been my experience (or my hope) and I have previously tried everything from Toodledo to OmniFocus to expensive notebooks to weird uses of poker chips and abacuses.
@kelbot @emacsen The spiele I got from the Mozilla guy at a Linux Days thing here in Prague some time ago made me feel that they had adopted many of the goals of Google if not their methods. It was like they wanted to build a somewhat crapper version of the Star Trek computer, but build it all the same. Nice guy & all, but I am increasingly seeing a cuddlier style of Google-type development one step removed from source - which is apt. (I see the same in Creative Commons in the cultural sphere.)
