Edward Snowden In Citizenfour

It all comes down to state power and people's ability to meaningfully oppose that power.
I remember what the internet was like before it's being watched and there's never been anything in the history of man that's like it. You can have children from one part of the world having an equal discussion, being granted the same respect as experts in their field in another part of the world, any topic, anywhere, any time, all the time and it was free and unrestrained.
We've seen the chill from that model, the change, towards something where people self police their own views and they make jokes, literally, about ending on the list if they donate to a political cause or if they say something in the discussion.
It has become an expectation that we are being watched.

Audacious 3.6.2 Lands In Fedora 22 Repos

Since I blogged about it (that's 11 days since that Audacious bug fix came out) I was happily using Audacious with the Digital Compression plugin disabled. Now that Audacious 3.6.2 is available in the Fedora 22 repos, all that users need to do is run  # dnf update to get the fix.

Audacious 3.6.1 On Fedora 22

I found a bug report on what I have been experiencing with Audacious in Fedora 22. It's crashing due to a segfault whenever I enable Dynamic Range Compression plugin. I have Audacious 3.6.1 and there's a bug fix release that came out May 31. The question now is how long before it lands in the Fedora 22 repos.  --
