Tool Discs: The Ninjas of Linux (SEMCO Linux SIG)

Tuesday night at 6:45pm, join Mike and Michael and the rest of the SEMCO Linux SIG for a discussion of live Linux-based tool discs for a variety of purposes, including backup, system recovery, password management, forensics, anti-virus, and more.  Most of these discs are intended for use on both Linux and Windows systems. As Michael says, trying to fix Windows from within Windows is often like trying to do a valve job on an engine while it’s running–these discs allow users to “step outside” Windows to get under the hood. Specific CDs will be discussed and demonstrated.

The talk is open to all — SEMCO members, i3Detroit members, and neither!

ReMade: The Rebirth of the Maker Movement

Some great friends of ours in Chicago have set out on a mission to produce a documentary film over the next year that explores the maker and hackerspace movement that is currently taking place in America. They have started a kickstarter project to try and raise some funding to allow them to produce this documentary.

From their website:

We are currently filming a documentary that explores the state and direction of the Maker and Hackerspace movement in America. We’re visiting hackerspaces and makerspaces across the nation in an attempt to show the incredible innovation, creativity, struggles and triumphs that exemplify these spaces. Our goal is to help everyone understand what hackerspaces and makerspaces are doing, how they are doing it and how the Maker Movement is changing the world.”

We would like to help them make this possible so if you can lend a few bucks to support the cause you can donate here. You can also visit their website http://www.electromagnate.com/.
