I couldn't find what license you are offering this under as "open source." Is this Creative Commons using the license on Lady Blackbird or something else?

Why not just budget six hours of straight sleep from, say, 10 PM to 4 AM or (for night owl's like me) 12 AM to 6 AM or even, go crazy, and sleep until 7 AM? As a Zen guy who has a sleep disorder and is a night owl, this is one thing that bugs me about most Zen retreats (not yours, it is for you so do what works for you!). People often seem to confuse sleep deprivation for intense practice. For myself, when I go on retreats and sleep less than six hours a night, all that means is that I get to fight to stay awake on the cushion by late morning and definitely by late afternoon. Trying stay focused and awake does not lend itself to good practice (at least for me).

Red Pine is problematic. While I think his grasp of the language (Chinese) is pretty good, his ideas relating to Buddhist thought are not as developed. We looked at his Heart Sutra book for a course but his commentary was so full of weirdness that we used another work.

Most of these clowns posting here don't get it. This movement is an expression of the public with the powers that be. Bitch about a lack of a coherent message all you want but THAT is the coherent message. As it spreads from city to city, taking beatings by the cop and soldiering on, you're going to see more and more people joining in. This isn't a Republican/Democrat thing. Both parties are inept, corrupt and completely owned by financial interests. People see this shit and have had enough. Watch it grow.

The fellows with the network hacking drone did an hour presentation at Black Hat in Las Vegas yesterday (which I attended). Good stuff.

As far as the JSTOR thing, if you read the indictment, it is pretty clear that they only noticed because he was downloading so many articles at once that he was effectively doing a denial of service attack on JSTOR. If he would have throttled his connection and thrown in some randomization, it might never have surfaced to humans to get involved.

I second this recommendation as well.
There is evidence that incentivizing in games, done incorrectly, actually has a negative effect on achievements and incentizes. See: http://chrishecker.com/Achievements_Considered_Harmful%3F The talk at the bottom is worth watching.
This all seems pretty abstract to me. Let's bring this down to concrete examples (and I say this as a hackerspace guy).
