My name is Harlan Lieberman-Berg, and this is the place that I cajole, curse, muse, proselytize, rant, or some combination of the above. Currently, I'm working for Akamai in their InfoSec group as a security compliance architect. Previously, I was the founder of AdvertiSin, an advertising company targeted at the adult industry, and before that an engineering and operations manager at Chitika.
In the free software world, I'm a paultag acolyte and Debian Maintainer, helping out with a handful of different packages. Formerly, I was the head of kernel security for Gentoo Linux and a member of their security team. I also contribute, mostly in small ways, to a variety of other F/OSS projects, including Ansible, cberl, nanomsg, triq and poolboy. I can be found lurking in various IRC channels on Freenode and OFTC.
This is a place for me to discuss whatever is on my mind, mainly with a bent towards interesting things that I'm working on or thinking about in the business, technical, or political spheres. I may occasionally delve into more personal matters, but for the most part, I'm expecting to keep that to a minimum. This will be the first time I've regularly kept a blog, nevertheless one under a strict, Iron Blogger enforced schedule, so we will have to see how often the posting schedule is. It is not unlikely I will end up owing Iron Blogger a lot of money.
If you're looking to get in touch with me, I'm on IRC (active or not) around the clock as hlieberman and check my email with a probably unhealthy frequency. If you want to reach me by secure means, my GPG key (
