No Go * (Star)

Next Steps

A call to action:

Many engineers, developers or product designers reading articles or FAQs on this website start spinning ideas around, brainstorming or even discussing additional solutions. It obvious: No-Go-* is about many/multiple products – different teams with diverse skills and expertise.

So how do we become a productive community of engineers?

We are lucky, in comparison to the huge body of work/technology already done, we only need to do a few essential tweaks – reliable and transparent. We think, being a one-stop shop for advanced (foundation-forming) security is the way to go. We could prepare standardization proposals for IETF, IAB, or ISO.

Ambitious projects require some structures, in particular when done with urgency. They could steer us to predictable results, stimulate additional exchange of ideas so that we can deliver together on our promises. This requires leadership as seeds, but also for holding the team/tech together.

Lets start with a dream-team. Nope, no dreams. Lets start with a team of “doers”, i.e., active, result oriented peoples who effortlessly adapt to problems and challenges. We all have seen it many times: some people, often good listeners, organized, clear in communicating priorities, grow into positions that required judgment and experience.  So we are looking for passionate experts/pros, new talents who want to changing the trajectory of cybersecurity – in which users have less fear from danger, harm or cyber threats.

Does grassroots mean, we are just looking for volunteers. Initially, yes – naturally; but later: no. Some can get involved part-time outside their main job or as part of their job, others need to do as a paid full-time contributor. Ideally, No-Go contributors will find in No-Go technology their career opportunity.

So what are the next step? We need …

  • Expertise:
    • We look for System dev’s, low-level (e.g., XEN), file-system, network, but also engineers who could combine Hardware/Software (i.e., USB, SATA, RISC-V)
    • Also: tech educators – helping the community to learn some old, but also new tech ideas
    • Team- or Tech Leader – someone who knows that he/she must be part of this
    • To all: please get in touch with us and be as direct as possible with us – please include DEV, TEACH, TEAM or TECH in the subject line
  • Money:
    • Please become a member of No-Go, with as little as $5 (or more) per month via – you will get regularly informed (1-2 messages per month)
      For getting started: the first 50 patreons and separately for the top-10 donating patreons, are invited for a special zoom “Ask Me Anything” meeting with the founder
    • We need Hall-of-Fame supporter, so if you want to make a much bigger difference – please contact us (as SPONSOR)
  • Media/Public:
    • Yes, we want to get the message out: to expert contributors, and to people becoming patreons/sponsors – So if you are a journalist, blogger, or influencer, it would be an honor and pleasure to make your acquaintance – and please include “MEDIA” within the subject line
  • Backend Office:
    • Starting a (successful) campaign can be an overwhelming experience. If you have experience in setting up some structures and filters – please present yourself as the “ORGANIZER” within the subject line
