So, whoami #introduction
I am working for a large German hoster/telco and heading a security team there. A fine team of skilled dudes.
I got into Linux at school (mid 90ies) and immediately loved it. My first #BSD was #OpenBSD 2.5 and I run that for a while. Over the years I experimented with #FreeBSD and finally stuck at #DragonFlyBSD where I am also a committer.
Nowadays, my business systems have to run Linux while all my personal devices run #OpenBSD. Our wireless support In Dfly sucks :/
Last month, members of CCC testified in German parliament about the importance of anonymity tools in technopolitics: "Encryption & anonymization services such as Tor are fundamental for secure communication & protection of information from unauthorized access. For people affected by repression or surveillance, it's essential that encryption methods and anonymization services are neither weakened nor provided with backdoors."

(Use arrow keys to move, and a/z to zoom in/zoom out)

@josch Thanks to you and some others, who inspired me at the #36c3 to write this.
I have put Japanese/German/English versions up on my website: https://fluxcoil.net/languages/multi-language-essays/2020-01/01_japan_tech_interactions
I was asked for a list of all my five-star books – it's a weird mix, but here you go: https://books.rixx.de/lists/five-stars/
I have posted a patch to add 11n Tx aggregation support to the #OpenBSD iwm(4) wifi driver.
As explained in my message this patch still needs some testing. Please help with testing if you can
Go ahead! Do it!
As usual, feel free to comment here or via other communication channels.
I might change the article later on so have a look at the date at the bottom.
