Say no to binary blobs

Filed under: Thoughts — abbe @ 1504

While going through OpenBSD website, I found their Release Songs page, and found this interesting song titled Blob!. The lyrics of this song describe how binary blobs, can takeover control from user, and how they look cute, but are actually an evil. The song is available as an Ogg Vorbis file. The music and voice is cool.

Also found, this interesting slide from the presentation given by Theo de Raadt. Right now, I didn’t have any Wi-Fi card. But when I have, it’ll be a Wi-Fi card with no binary blobs attached. Or to be more precise, a hardware with no binary blobs attached.
