This is a news cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.

In the intro, if you are interested in my recent trip to Brussels, check out my four part travelogue (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4), a great short film about the EU Hackathon, or my beer focused take on it in the most recent episode of Living Proof. I will be heading back to Europe, to visit Paris for the first time the week of December 5th. On the events side, I will be interviewing Cory Doctorow live at New America this Tuesday and the organizers of the fantastic Southern California Linux Expo have extended a special discount code to my listeners. Just put “CMDLN” (without the quotes) in when registering to receive 50% off. In addition, they’ve given me one free pass to give away, just be the first to email me asking about it.

This week’s security alerts are study finds privacy tools are failing to protect users and security researchers bypasses Windows 8 secure boot.
