FirstNet recently pitched U.S. Customs and Border Protection to convince the agency to subscribe to the network. In a white paper, FirstNet claims it will provide CBP access to “photographs, real-time audio/video feeds, and databases from other state, local, or Federal agencies, to aid in the identification and apprehension of terrorists, undocumented aliens, and smugglers.” These capabilities would be offered “in times of crisis or simply day-to-day operations.”

I'm really enjoying the new "guix pull", which supports time traveling just like everything else in Guix now. A blogpost on the Guix blog about it: gnu.org/software/guix/blog/201
