Jamie Tanna's profile image

Hi, I'm Jamie Tanna (he/him/his), and I'm currently a Senior Software Engineer at Elastic.

I currently live in Nottingham with my partner Anna Dodson and our cat Morph and our puppy Cookie.

I use my site as a method of blogging about my learnings, as well as sharing information about projects I have previously, or are currently, working on in my spare time.

I'm an maintainer for a number of Open Source projects, including oapi-codegen, and my most recent passion project, dependency-management-data (DMD).

I'm a GNU/Linux user, a big advocate for the Free Software Movement, and the IndieWeb movement and I try to self host my own services where possible, instead of relying on other providers.

I have ADHD (Inattentive Type) and am learning how to make my life work better around it.

Drop me an email at hi@jamietanna.co.uk, or using any of the other social links below.

My birthday is on the .

I used to just block ads and leave it up to others to handle the Digital Panopticon. But now I ask myself, “Why am I giving these people oxygen? If they feel their creativity is best presented with a popup that is surrounded by a blur to force you to interact with it, and then when you make it go away there are header and footer ads, and every two paragraphs there is an ad… I can take a moment and find a different page.” I no longer link to pages that are ads interrupted with content. 🚫

**Concerning CrowdStrike:** We are now at t+26h. Please compare how much we knew about the xz-attack after less than a day with what we know about the chain of events of giant outage yesterday. If something similar had been caused by an OSS component, we would see congress discussing a ban on open software in critical infrastructure already.

Strong dislike that #Linkedin's native Web view no longer allows you to copy the URL, or open it in other browsers, and generally making it very hostile to folks who want to ie share the link with someone else, or move it to a read-it-later app

Attached: 1 image In 6 months to 30 April number of people whos code was accepted into open source projects (committers) from the UK increase increased by 1,600 compared to 1,700 in the previous 12 months. Read the OpenUK report to understand OpenUK's plan to build more contributors to open source projects from the UK and our Skills ask of the government. https://openuk.uk/stateofopen/state-of-open-the-uk-in-2024-phase-2-the-open-manifesto #opensource #theopenmanifesto #openuk

Also, quick note for crowdstrike execs: everyone can see you looking over at that bus, considering your options, limbering up your throwing arm... Just a note that the people you probably want to hire are watching reeeally closely how you're going to handle this, and are taking notes. The shareholders may be into human sacrifices, but the people you need to run your business aren't. Choose wisely.

I once ran my own personal URL shortener but eventually killed it because it wasn't that useful, but I kept the links working, and in fact they still work _to this day_ because I converted them from a dynamic PHP web application to a little list of nginx URL redirects. Google have comparatively infinite budget and can't figure out how to be a respectful web citizen. https://social.kernel.org/objects/39125e2b-0997-4c90-86f9-b16229bf4b52

Listened to Open Source Security Podcast: Episode 437 - CocoPods and proper funding for open source
Post details
and talk about a pretty big bug found in CocoPods ownership. We also touch on a paper that discusses the technical debt that open source should have. We discuss what the long term sustainability of open source. There aren't any good solutions for open source today, but talking about these problems is important, we have to start to understand what's going on before we can plausibly discuss solutions. If you're an open source project that needs to put things on pause, or even walk way, that's OK. Show Notes

Friends in the #PHP community, would you mind sharing examples of some packages that have been officially deprecated, as well as some that have been deprecated by the community ie due to lack of maintenance or security issues?

It's interesting that people keep talking about the Trump incident as a "shocking act" when it really wasn't shocking at all if you've been paying attention to American gun violence and the Republicans' constant calls for political violence and death threats against Democratic politicians and journalists (though these are mainly targeting female, Black and queer journalists and a lot of the targets are women in politics, so maybe straight White male journalists aren't being subjected to nearly as much of this and just don't believe their colleagues). I wish one journalist would just honestly say 'in a not unexpected act of political violence in our landscape of constant gun violence" or something that acknowledged reality. This kind of gun violence is now terribly mundane in the US and Trump and the GOP helped make it mundane.
