Musings 2017 05 14

Been viewing a lot of Vinod Koshla interviews lately. I’ve been thinking about one of his talking points. 

World changing happens in the margins.

Thinking about it more I think that we Filipino technology people should reframe our thinking. We are in the margins. This is where innovations happen. If you are not innovating the problem is not government support, funding, infrastructure and the like. It is us, our attitude, our lack of perseverance, the never take no for an answer mindset that we are missing.

Quora :  Is there any case of the 3rd amendment ever being violated?

Same principle on why DAP is not criminal.

What they lost on was that (ironically) there had never been a 3rd Amendment Case before. Because of that the government had no way of knowing, for sure, that their actions were indeed illegal. Therefore the defendants were covered by a qualified immunity unless they knowingly acted illegally; and in the absence of previous precedents on this issue, the standard of “knowing illegality” was not met.

Making a Kali Bootable USB Drive | Kali Linux

Making a Kali Bootable USB Drive/02. Kali Linux Live /Making a Kali Bootable USB Drive 02. Kali Linux LiveOur favorite way, and the fastest method, for getting up and running with Kali Linux is to run it “live” from a USB drive. This method has several advantages:It’s non-destructive — it makes no changes to the host system’s hard drive or installed OS, and to go back to normal operations, you simply remove the “Kali Live” USB drive and restart the system.It’s portable — you can carry Kali Linux in your pocket and have it running in minutes on an available systemIt’s customizable — you can roll your own custom Kali Linux ISO image and put it onto a USB drive using the same proceduresIt’s potentially persistent — with a bit of extra effort, you can configure your Kali Linux “live” USB drive to have persistent storage, so the data you collect is saved across rebootsIn order to do this, we first need to create a bootable USB drive which has been set up from an ISO image of Kali Linux.

Musing 2017 05 06

I don’t know what happened but I am busier now than I was last Tuesday.

I really want to be mad at certain persons right now but the reality is if you’re plans are being trashed by someone else then there was a lapse in judgement on your part that cannot be ignored.  You lack a fail safe of some kind. You trusted the wrong person. You over estimated someone’s capacity for change or leadership.

You have no one else to blame but yourself.


So busy but I so fucking want to binge sense8 season 2.

Why bar exams ruin legal education | Inquirer Opinion

I’ve posted this before but this is timely.

Why bar exams ruin legal education By: Oscar Franklin Tan – @inquirerdotnetPhilippine Daily Inquirer / 03:21 AM October 03, 2014This week, another batch of law students will have wasted an extra year of their lives to study for the month-long bar exam. This is in addition to four years of law school where every moment was defined by the bar. It is high time the Philippines got rid of its unique obsession with what was supposed to be a simple licensure exam that mutated into a rite of passage and national spectacle.

How To Install IntelliJ IDEA On Ubuntu Linux

Tragedies can become opportunities for change. A hard drive crash can result in upgrading to an SSD and dual booting linux and Windows.

It will take some time in downloading and installing IntelliJ IDEA. It also depends on your internet speed. Once installed, you can simply search for IntelliJ in Unity Dash (if you are using Ubuntu Unity) and start the IDE.
