Subject: [linux] Linux friendly device

Attention : courriel externe | external email
I have been using a write-mostly device, one used to jot down hand-written notes in a completely paperless way. I am talking about the reMarkable 2. This device, although it has applications under Windows/MacOS, but not Linux just yet, runs itself under Linux, and There are multiple utilities available on Github, and everything is open.

If this is something that may interest some of OCLUG group, please let me know. There will be some Windows involved for the presentation, but it will not last long, I promise.

Thanks :-)

Good morning everyone,

When: 7pm Thursday Feb 2nd 2023
Where: https://meet.jit.si/oclug_2023-02-02_Wiz2MQTT_and_other_topics

This month we have an introduction to Dmitriy's new open source project Wiz2MQTT, which he offered to talk about at very short notice, so thank you!

I keep meaning to ask for volunteers to give talks, short or long, but usually remember a week before a meeting, so now I'm putting out a request for future meetings. If you have a presentation or demo you'd be comfortable sharing with the club, or a discussion topic you wish introduce, then please let us know.

In addition to Dmitriy's presentation, if time allows, I have a couple of discussion topics, which I've not prepared enough for a talk.

Topics to mull over, and I look forward to others knowing more about than I do!

Privacy, Secrecy, Security, and Accessibility
- Privacy - initiated by a couple of emails about this club's privacy rules.
- Privacy vs Secrecy - something we do, but don't talk about, vs something we don't want people to know we do.
- Privacy vs Security - moral intent vs technical competence
- Security vs Accessibility - PGP on your phone, medical records on the internet.

If ChatGPT can pass exams for MBAs (says more about MBAs or ChatGPT?), then what are the implications for publicly available knowledge based work sectors?
    - Lawyers, where arcane inflexible wording is required.
    - Open Source software, if you can just ask "Hey ChatGPT, write me closed source code to replace libsomething".
    - Family doctors, where symptoms lead to tests, which lead to diagnosis, which lead to treatment options.

Until Thursday
