BitTorrent Unveils Secure Chat To Counter 'NSA Dragnet Surveillance'
I think this could be the phrase of the year, "That good old warped 80's tinfoil hat paranoia is the only thing that will save you anymore because it seems it was never wrong."
Of the Love of Oldtimers - Dusting Off a Sun Fire V1280 Server
I've run Debian on Ultra 1 and Ultra 5. OpenBSD is another option, I ran it on the Ultra 5 to run as a fw for a time.

Use Google's Nexus 7 Tablet As a VoIP Phone, For Free
My son did this same thing last week on his iPod Touch 4 - sure it requires Wifi, but otherwise it 'just works' fine via Google Voice, so I don't know how this post is garnering this much attention, save for the Nexus 7 is the new/latest hotness.

Choosing the Right Security Tools To Protect VMs
I'm with you, I've built a few networks of VMs, and my latest has an OpenBSD KVM host as the gateway - what is the fear this article is trying to perpetuate? Maybe it's BE AFRAID, BUY MORE NETWORK APPLIANCES!
Gmail Takes Largest Webmail Service Crown
Yes, this is also my reason. Spam was killing me 4 years ago when I still ran my own mailserver, and those addys were 5 years old then, now, I look at my Spam folder every now and then and can't believe the traffic.

Ask Slashdot: What Are Your Tips For Working From Home?
I've worked from home now for about 8 months, it's gone very well, and has only taken a few adjustments. I have kids, but they're in school, and my wife also works part time from home, so with those two things it's gone well. One thing, have a separate place to work, my workspace downstairs has turned into my office, and I ordered an Ikea desk in order to make a standing desk out of it. I bring this up because standing to work has done wonders for my concentration and focus. Work provided me a 27" iMac, I use the built-in camera, VPN, IM, Skype, and lots of SSH, to stay dialed into the dev group fulltime. IM chat rooms help me get answers from a group, or direct IMs to work on specific issues. We do agile dev and also do a bit of pairing, where screensharing allows me to share my screen, or vice versa, to work one on one. It's really worked better than we expected, and it's been very enjoyable - I'm glad I'm getting the opportunity.

Get involved with code4lib http://code4lib.org/about and ask on their mailing list. I see tech solutions have already been suggested, Koha, Evergreen - also look at Blacklight http://projectblacklight.org/, but the knowledge in the code4lib group will be invaluable.
Lax Security At Russian Rocket Plant
this is unreal that, but completely believable considering the lackadaisical ways things are going in Russia these days. I always love seeing sites of people wandering through abandoned places in the old Soviet Union, but this is an operational facility where their (recently, much maligned) space program runs from. Wow, wonder if they'll ever pull out of this rut they've been in.
