This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast.
One of the reasons for the long delay was work related, focusing on the 1.0 release of the Commotion wireless project. Also work related and upcoming, I may be able to make it out to either LibrePlanet or RightsCon in March. If you want to hear from me, regardless of the length of pauses between episodes, check out the Libation Liberation Front.
The hacker word of the week is frob.
The feature this week is a consideration on how at least part of the problem with the state of inclusion and diversity in technology is due to a failure in leadership. This draws on some of the discussion following the episode on meritocracy, especially encouragement from Kevin who is working on the documentary, Transgeek. Here is a write up of the problematic demo at Disrupt, Andrea Peterson’s discussion of Dickinson’s Twitter feed, and some food for thought on soft power.
