Being an Aussie, this article was a bit curious:- CSIRO is a Patent Troll. CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) is a government funded research entity which has come up with some very useful advances. They recently won a battle over WiFi technology patents that they developed. The article defines patent trolls as organisations that hold patents but don't manufacture anything. I think vilifying actual inventors is a bit low.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself.

I touched on it earlier in this message thread, but UEFI Specification 2.3.1 errata C, §27 explains how exactly UEFI security works. It's less than 100 pages in length (the entire specification is 2,200 pages) and I would consider it recommended reading since it explains the mechanisms everyone seems to be discussing.

Wow! The full .pdf is some seriously heavy reading. I'll give it a perusal when I get some time. I'm sure most of it will be beyond me. Poor dunderheads like me just have to rely on the blatherings of more educated to be able to understand some of these complicated things. Of course, it's that way in all aspects of life, I s'pose, not just techie stuff.
