If anybody's wondering how to setup a demo for a talk about KMS...
My talk about KMS is starting in a few minutes!

The proprietary driver for my network card doesn't support IPv6. There is a free software driver for it, but the vendor has been using cryptographic techniques to kneecap it and force people to use their proprietary driver instead. I only use IPv4 so this isn't really a big deal to me.
But a lot of people are talking about IPv6, and I feel left out. So I've decided to send a bunch of angry emails to the maintainers of the IPv6 stack in the Linux kernel. They tell me it's the vendor's problem, so I made up a bunch of misinformation about how broken IPv6 on Linux is and started spreading it around the internet. Any time I hear about new IPv6-only technology like Yggdrasil or cjdns I make my way to the comment threads to talk shit about IPv6.

Article of course explicitly explains that downside. /s
Very privacy such secure.
