  • Caminandes 3: Llamigos (0:02:31)
  • NUUG
  • I denne episoden av tegnefilmserien Caminandes blir vi enda bedre kjent med vår helt Koro. Det er vinter i Patagonia, og det er lite mat. Llamaen Koro møter den plagsomme pingvinen Oti i en episk kamp om siste saftige bær.
  • Thomas Sødring - Noark 5v4 som fri programvare (1:16:50)
  • NUUG
  • Prosjektet nikita-noark5-kjerne er i sitt andre år med utvikling og vi har kommet et godt stykke på veien i arbeidet med å realisere en Noark 5-kjerne som fri programvare. Noark 5v4 eller tjenestegrensesnittet som det heter er fortsatt under utvikling. Vi har utviklet nikita-noark5-kjerne i henhold til Noark 5v4 og ønsker å dele våre erfaringer med implementasjon og tolkning av Noark 5v4 standarden. Vi vil gi en overordnet beskrivelse av teknologivalgene våre og forklare hva som ligger i HATEOAS-begrepet. Noark 5v4 bruker OData som en standard for søk og vi tar også en gjennomgang hvordan det brukes. Deretter åpner vi for en diskusjon om hvilken innovasjonspotensial det ligger i en Noark 5-kjerne som fri programvare og hva som skjer hvis arkivering blir gratis.
  • Trustworthy computers (0:58:18)
  • NUUG
  • Jonas Smedegaard, Debian developer and PureOS developer, talks about backdoors in computers, and explains how some laptops, servers, and phones minimize such risks. He brings a Purism Librem13 laptop and a few other gadgets.
  • Virtual Machines and Where to Find Them (0:44:24)
  • NUUG
  • Viua VM is a greenfield virtual machine designed for parallel execution. Its instruction set aims to facilitate writing reliable, correct, concurrent software. Such an undertaking is not completed in a day or two - work on Viua started in December 2014, and is still ongoing. Viua positions itself as a contender to the throne currently occupied by Erlang's VM - BEAM. Apart from a technical overview, this talk will give a tour of the "softer" problems one may encounter while working on a piece of non-trivial Free Software. It will also discuss how work on such software may affect one's position in the academia and in the business world. This will be described from an undergraduate student's point of view, early in their carreer.
  • Vincent Ambo - Where does YOUR compiler come from (0:49:54)
  • NUUG
  • Many people are familiar with the problems around the lack of trust in proprietary hardware components and their firmware. Similar issues do however exist on the software side of things, especially when it comes to how we bootstrap compilers for the ubiquitous C-language. This talk will present an overview of how these processes work in modern Linux distributions, which issues we have and what the implications are. We'll also do a brief dive into related topics, such as repeatable build environments and reproducibility. If you're not already aware of these issues, hopefully this talk will leave you with a newfound sense of paranoia and some pointers towards things that YOU can do to improve the situation.
  • Trustworthy computers (0:58:23)
  • NUUG
  • Jonas Smedegaard presents Trustworthy computers. Buying a new laptop, phone or other computer is not easy. Many computers can run Linux nowadays, but depending on your needs fewer of them work well, if security is one of your concerns then options available to you surprisingly shrink to almost zero. The talk will highlight some security issues and advice on what to look for in computers - laptops, phones and small home servers - for those of us concerned about privacy and want full control over our computing environments. Jonas Smedegaard is a freelance systems administrator and developer with a special interest in ethically designed computers and software. Jonas is a long time Debian developer involved with several Blends including FreedomBox and DebianParl where ethical aspects of hardware and software is crucial. Since mid 2017 Jonas has been hired by Purism to help develop the Debian-based PureOS shipped with their line of Librem laptops and a future Librem phone. NUUG talk from 2018-01-09.
  • Nivlheim, et verktøy for datainnsamling fra datamaskiner (0:31:58)
  • NUUG
  • Øyvind Hagberg presenterer Nivlheim. USIT drifter maskinparken til UIO, som består av 2800+ servere (fysiske og virtuelle). Vi har utviklet et verktøy som kontinuerlig samler inn informasjon om disse, bl.a. hvordan de er konfigurert og hva slags hardware de har. Det hjelper oss å holde oversikt. Presentasjonen handler om hvordan dette verktøyet virker, og hvilke muligheter det gir oss. Vi går inn på noen tekniske detaljer, og snakker om historikken bak designvalg. Til slutt snakker vi om hva vi gjør for å gjøre dette verktøyet om til åpen kildekode, og hva vi planlegger videre. Øyvind Hagberg jobber i driftsavdelingen på USIT. Han holder på med utvikling av støttesystemer for drift av maskinparken. Han har bakgrunn som utvikler, og har jobbet på USIT siden 2014. NUUG talk from 2017-12-12.

  • Opne offentlege data (1:22:05)
  • NUUG
  • Kva skjer med opne data i Norge? I fleire år har offentleg sektor gjort sine data tilgjengelege så dei kan brukast av andre. Brukarane kan vere både frå privat sektor/sivilsamfunnet - såkalla vidarebruk - eller at offentleg sektor sjølve gjenbruker data. I foredraget gir Livar Bergheim ein kort introduksjon om du ikkje er kjent med opne data, du får høyre eksempel på bruk av opne data, kort historikk, kva er status, kva skjer (nye retningslinjer, felles datakatalog m.m.) og vegen vidare. NUUG talk from 2017-10-10.
  • An introduction to Freifunk (1:37:11)
  • NUUG
  • Starting with the history of Freifunk, Andreas will give an overview on Freifunk's goals and vision. It is also a history about their devices and the software they use for that. Another topic will be their social and political impact in Germany and the EU. He will also talk about how Freifunk organizes with more than 400 local communities. There will be enough time and room for questions, as well. Andreas Bräu studied computer science in the early 2000s and now works as a software developer in Berlin. Freifunk came to his life in 2006. Since then he did a lot, i.e. some firmware development, creating web sites, organizing community meetings. NUUG talk from 2017-09-12.
  • Teckids: The Free Software Youth Organisation (0:56:01)
  • NUUG
  • Teckids is a youth organisation from Germany, aiming at establishing a free software community among children and adolescents (basically pupils). Regularly running youth programmes at FOSS conferences where children take part in workshops about many aspects of technology and computer science, Teckids provides the necessary entry level to the free software community. Being a community organisation for young people, Teckids entirely relies on engaging those young people in all aspects of the organisation, starting from tutoring in workshops up to participating as board members. This concept brings a whole bunch of quite complicated and hard processes with it, but is entirely worth while. We would like to introduce our work to interested participants in Norway, to present the idea behind the organisation, and maybe find people who would like to engage in the project in Norway. Eike and Nik are two members of Teckids e.V. in Germany. Nik is chairperson and founding member of the organisation, and Eike, now 16 years old, is the tutor who got everything rolling back when he was 11 years old and held his first PyGame workshops at FrOSCon. The two are now lead developers of the Veripeditus project, a new tool to get young people interested in gaming involved in programming using free software tools. NUUG talk from 2017-08-08.
  • TED - Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame (0:22:31)
  • NUUG
  • "Public shaming as a blood sport has to stop," says Monica Lewinsky. In 1998, she says, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become constant — and can turn deadly. In a brave talk, she takes a hard look at our online culture of humiliation, and asks for a different way. TED talk downloaded from The Internet Archive.

  • TED - Katie Bouman: How to take a picture of a black hole (0:12:56)
  • NUUG
  • At the heart of the Milky Way, there's a supermassive black hole that feeds off a spinning disk of hot gas, sucking up anything that ventures too close — even light. We can't see it, but its event horizon casts a shadow, and an image of that shadow could help answer some important questions about the universe. Scientists used to think that making such an image would require a telescope the size of Earth — until Katie Bouman and a team of astronomers came up with a clever alternative. Learn more about how we can see in the ultimate dark. TED talk downloaded from The Internet Archive.
  • Data collection, psychometric profiling and their impact on politics (1:14:46)
  • NUUG
  • Most political campaigns are data-driven nowadays, and many are getting into profiling of individual voters. Recently, a company with a strong background in military PSYOPS has implemented technology developed at Cambridge University, to enable psychological profiling based on digital traces. They have then been embedded into some of the most surprising recent political campaigns: Ted Cruz's, Donald Trump's and Leave.EU (Brexit). I will outline my personal journey, first discovering the technology as a test subject for Cambridge University, then investigating this company as a complete amateur, and eventually contributing to an article shared globally. A background article based on this research was published by NRK Beta early in february 2017, see <https://nrkbeta.no/2017/02/04/dataene-som-snudde-verden-pa-hodet/>. The speaker, Paul-Olivier Dehaye, is a mathematician at the University of Zurich working on interoperability tools enabling new forms of collaborative work on mathematical data, knowledge and software. In his spare time, he enjoys litigating (and especially winning!) against multibillion dollar businesses for the defence of his fundamental right to data protection. He is now leveraging that experience as co-founder of PersonalData.IO, a service that helps individuals regain control over their personal data. NUUG talk from 2017-04-04.
  • TED - Seema Bansal: How to fix a broken education system ... without any more money (0:14:33)
  • NUUG
  • Seema Bansal forged a path to public education reform for 15,000 schools in Haryana, India, by setting an ambitious goal: by 2020, 80 percent of children should have grade-level knowledge. She's looking to meet this goal by seeking reforms that will work in every school without additional resources. Bansal and her team have found success using creative, straightforward techniques such as communicating with teachers using SMS group chats, and they have already measurably improved learning and engagement in Haryana's schools.

  • TED - Cédric Villani: What's so sexy about math? (0:16:28)
  • NUUG
  • Hidden truths permeate our world; they're inaccessible to our senses, but math allows us to go beyond our intuition to uncover their mysteries. In this survey of mathematical breakthroughs, Fields Medal winner Cédric Villani speaks to the thrill of discovery and details the sometimes perplexing life of a mathematician. "Beautiful mathematical explanations are not only for our pleasure," he says. "They change our vision of the world." TED talk downloaded from The Internet Archive.
  • Hva prosjektledere bør vite om softwareutviklere (0:59:10)
  • NUUG
  • Softwareutviklingsprosjekter har en tendens til å gå over tid og budsjett. Dette er det mange grunner til. Foredraget vil legge hovedvekt på en gjennomgåelse av den psykologiske faglitteraturen på området gjennom de siste femten år. Den kan deles i to: Den som er utført av ingeniører, og den som er utført av psykologer. Ingeniørene ser på det vi er interessert i, altså hvilke variabler som fører til produktivitet, men de har en tendens til å gjøre veldig pussige metodevalg, slik at resultatene blir vanskelige å integrere med eksisterende kunnskap. Psykologene pleier å holde seg til ortodoks og nyttig metodevalg, men pleier å studere veldig perifere ting, som hva som skal til for at programmerere skal bli glade i hverandre. Rolf Lindgren er psykolog fra UiO. Han har utviklet SMS-applikasjoner i Java og MySQL, og skrev koden som konverterte UiOs studiehåndbøker fra studiekonsulentenes XML-dokumenter til pdf for utskrift. Han deltok i, og ledet avslutningen av, et treårig forskningsprosjekt ved Det Norske Veritas som hadde som formål å identifisere menneskelige risikofaktorer i softwareutviklingsprosjekter. Han er seniorrådgiver i Dignus rekruttering og rådgivning. NUUG talk from 2007-10-09.
