PCWorld blog post - Chattanooga's Innovation Culture

From: Phil Shapiro 
------------------------------------------------------
Hi chugaluggers, 

For those who might be interested, here's a new blog post I wrote for PCWorld magazine about Chattanooga's innovation culture. 

http://tinyurl.com/6t9mv7g 

I'm going to be writing some follow up blog posts for PCWorld about Chattanooga and would love to include some FOSS-related stuff. 
I've been following the discussions on this list about the possibilities of opening a hackerspace. Am happy to reference a funding 
campaign for such in one of my upcoming blog posts. For example, the Fayetteville Public Library hackerspace near Syracuse, New York, used 
http://www.indiegogo.com/ to raise funds for their hackerspace. 

Also, I asked the folks at EPB to send me a screencast showing a 4.5 gigabyte file transfer via gigabit EPB service. They sent 
me a nice screencast made on a Mac showing the file transfer happening in less than two minutes. I'd love to also link to a screencast 
showing a similar file transfer happening via two Linux systems. If there's anyone on this list that can help make that happen, thanks 
for contact me off-list. Ideally you'd have access to Linux running on two Core i7 (or Core i5 system). It doesn't matter what is contained 
in the data in the 4.5 gigabyte file. If you don't know someone with gig access at home or work, I can see if EPB can assist in getting 
you access at their offices. 

City leaders in Chattanooga may or may not realize that FOSS is key to Chattanooga realizing the promise of its gigabit municipal 
infrastructure. I need no convincing myself.

Has something changed in the last few months? As far as I know they do not offer statics to residentials. -- Stephen Haywood Information Security Consultant CISSP, GPEN, OSCP T: @averagesecguy W: averagesecurityguy.info

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ Just an FYI you can use this to generate a 4.5GB file very quickly: dd if=/dev/zero of=my

=============================================================== From: Phil Sieg ------------------------------------------------------ Wasn't my article. I have just read a portion of the Blog post so far... I believe you have to be a business customer to get a static ip.

=============================================================== From: Tim Youngblood ------------------------------------------------------ Mine is consistent enough to run a couple of services for my internal use (a Jenkins build server, for example). I'm not sure it has ever changed. Definitely not something you could host from unless you went DynDNS.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Has anyone seen a quote on 1gig business service with a static IP?

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I know lower speed circuits can be had for the same pricing as residential (plus the add-on(s) for your static(s)). Using that logic, you can use the Residential config-your-own, and see 1GB at $349. $317 if you add a basic phone line. My routed /28 is $10/month.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ My understanding was you couldn't get a static if you were residential and they determined if you were residential by your physical address. Who would be the right person to ask to get a static in my home? -- Stephen Haywood Information Security Consultant CISSP, GPEN, OSCP T: @averagesecguy W: averagesecurityguy.info

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 My suggestion would be to have a representative from your company call Cara Hicks (sorry, don't have her direct office line handy) and request a quote. Feel free to use me or DVS as a reference, it should provide a conversation point, I make no other claims. It is possible to have a business circuit at a residential address. You might need a business. They're pretty easy to come by.
