Utility Wants $17,500 Refund After Failure To Scrub Negative Search Results
Im a little disappointed in these comments! I dont see anyone complaining that a utility is even spending money on this sorta thing, much less a publicly owned utility....did I miss the part where we started enjoying abuses from the mono/duopolies to which we are all conscripted??
From the rich right down to the poorest or poor in our citizenry, we all pay for utilities, one way or another. It could even be argued that the brand of gravy fed the homeless is one slot cheaper because soup kitchens pay these bills too.
Has the world gone mad?? Since when can a public resource use funds in this way? Where is the outrage? Where is the inquisition?
I would even go so far as to say even were this service offered for free of charge to this utility that they are engaging in a cover-up! Fraud! Deceit!

Google Fiber: No Charge For Peering, No Fast Lanes
Hats off to google - but not really. This is what they do. This is what I have come to expect from every other ISP until this nonsense with Netflix paying that ridiculous ransom.
These big old companies have been laughing all the way to the bank having sold all these speed tiers and now that we are more fully utilizing the service - and at the expense of their other business divisions - its become a tool of extortion. Instead of optimizing their traffic flows (for the benefit of all) they are holding this simple engineering work as a hostage.
Regional interconnects used to just do this with a service request.

Hackers Allege Mt. Gox Still Controls "Stolen" Bitcoins
yea, bankers never again stopped giving loans to snatch up cheap real estate anymore....cmon
all due respect, youll need to do a lot more to convince me bankers (and their counterparts in industry and government) have any less control over the proverbial faucet. Scarcity of access to our currency can be engineered in so many more ways in a debt backed system - you listed most of them - than ever before. I dont think its simply about the currency anymore.
ftr, i never liked the idea of bitcoin either

Test and answers to get hired? They are saying he didnt pass on his own (rather, hacked their systems before he got hired in order to get hired) or went from zero to evil the second he was given access and just went all grabby?
Or are they saying he planned to open a "work for the nsa now, ask me how" website?

wonder if the fossil fuel industry is gonna like it - or if this is a smear mission...
