The LJ for November 2000 had a “source unknown” quote in the column titled “Let Freedom Ping” by Doc Searls. A quote that bears remarkable resemblance to the one mentioned is thought to be a Kenyan prayer, listed in Simpson's Contemporary Quotations. Just my two cents.
I love your magazine, except when you use strange acronyms without telling us what's going on. What is “URI” as used in Brian Aker's article (LJ page 172 November 2000). I've looked everywhere, including three years of back issues of LJ, and can't find this acronym used anywhere. Spare us the frustration and explain your acronyms every time, please.
(Don't tell me it's really “URL”)!
A URI is a “Uniform Resource Identifier”, and URLs are a subset of URIs. For more information on the difference between URIs and URLs, see http://www.w3.org/Addressing/. By the way, that was a URI, URl and URN all at the same time. We'll expand that acronym next time we use it.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
