Companies do not like change and competition.
Crowdsourcing Confirms: Websites Inaccessible on Comcast
It might be a like a bigger brother, but not really a friend. http://public-dns.tk/ has a list of servers. Even many not from the US
Snowden Says No One Listened To 10 Attempts To Raise Concerns At NSA
Those two parties are inside a box. Even the whole govenement system is inside the box. Perhaps people need to start thinking outside the box. If you do that every 200-250 years, you are still way below average.
If the type of governement you have does not work, perhaps the type of governement doesn't work for you and it needs to be changed.
Perhaps a system where the majprity has all the power is not a good enough system as it lays too much importance on the power.
To me politics is not just doing what the one majoority wants, but try to find what the REAL majority wants.
Instead of doing something where it is 50% is happy (e.g one part memmbers) you can get to something where 60% or even 70% is happy. Perhaos not all of your party, but still some of the other party.
Once you are in governement, you should govern ALL the people, not just those from your party
Author Says It's Time To Stop Glorifying Hackers
Make your system robust against weak passwords. This is not rocket science
It is for a LOT of situations more complicated then what you believe.
Suere you have the standard measurements you talk about, like pasword hashes not bevoming public.
The problem is that security is a social problem that is being solved by technical solutions. On the social part is also that people are not able to remember 174 logins and seperate passwords and remember the new passwords every month. That 174 is a total ransom number. I am sure if I look at how many websites I have a login and password, that number is easily reached.
So people will look for a way to still be able to reach that website or do their work. They will find easier passwords. Write them down. Use the same login and password for different systems.
A password reminder program is not a solution, as I am not allowed to install programs on my work PC. I will also not have access to it all the time.
A Tech Entrepreneur's Guide To Visiting Shenzhen
Living in Europe with the Euro, so prices are easy to compare. When I visited Munich, I had heard that Munich was an expensive city to live and I thought the beer prices were indeed very high as they were almost double as what I would pay where I live.
That was untill I realized they were also twice as big.
For those interested, I was comparing Hoegaarden and Paulaner Weisdbier. Both Wheat beers
NASA Wants To Go To Europa
I my language the continent is written as Europa, so my first thought was : "Please don't."
It is stupid naming anyway. Naming a planet after a continent is like naming a continent after a person. Oh. Wait. Nevermind.
Ask Slashdot: Does Your Employer Perform HTTPS MITM Attacks On Employees?
Same in Belgium and I would guess the rest of Europe. In Europe the laws tend to lean more towards users and not companies. Also more towards privacy.
Several places I worked have been VERY upfront on what they were doing. Most also worked with whitelists. The majority of people do not need any internet access anyway. Next they place several Internet PCs on several places, so people can look up their facebook during their breaks.
This makes it safer for everybody, although when new staff arrives I tell them that the public PC is not something I would do any banking on, because I have NO idea how safe it realy is and it is THEIR fault if somebody robs their bank by using a public PC.
Also up front explanation that company mail may not be used for personal use. As the Intenetcmputers are available (obviously seperated from the rest of the network. They even have a seperate internet connection.) there is no excuse to do that.
What I hate is companies who focus on people looking at porn. Why is watching 4 minutes of porn worse then 4 hours of BBC news? One giggled perhaps a bit and the other did not work for half a day. To me the second is way worse.
Pro-Vaccination Efforts May Be Scaring Wary Parents From Shots
As good as mandatory vacinations would be, there will be people who would make this political. This because it isn't about what is right, but about not letting the other get what they want.
PETA Abandons $1 Million Prize For Artificial Chicken
PETA's Secret Slaughter of Kittens, Puppies. Just to let you know that they might not always be what they claim to be.
I am against animal cruelty (mostly because it ruins the taste of the meat) but I am more against hypocracy.

Food, right? Chocelate coins and some variation on apple pie.
Ask Slashdot: What Software Can You Not Live Without?
Depending on the distro, some things I really need might already be there. So installing or checking if it is installed are the same to me. I often have no idea if it is default or my selection.
The first I will always install or at least check is mc
Espercially for a new install, I think it is easier then using cd, ls and what not as I will be going around a lot and copy files from other places.
vim will be already installed and so will be others, like bash, apt or yast or other software to install.
On the GUI I will always go for XFCE and add the plugins.
I use the NVidea drivers on my 4 screens that run not in xinerama.
Then mplayer and a gui for it. Last in the top of things I will check or install is yad as I have several scripts that depend on it.
I will then copy my scripts and run them one by one to see what is missing.
Snowden's NSA Leaks Gave IETF a Needed Security Wake-up Call
I was also looking at the ease of use part. How many people do encrypt their email? And I mean because of reason, not because they are geeks.
I am talking about the CEO sending messages that should stay secure.
I think the reason they do not encrypt their email is because it is not implemented in the email client as a standard and doing so is not easy enough.
"But there is XYZ that they ciould use/do." Well, they don't and that is a serious problem.
Scottish Independence Campaign Battles Over BBC Weather Forecast
I am aware that no matter what, this is NOT a technical problem. It is a social one. Even if they somehow found a way, the people moaning now will find something else. They will keep moaning even after they would get what they asked for.
That said, looking at the technical side, what do they use as starting point from where the UKandNI are vieuwed from? Is this the equator as many maps are made that way? What if they would use the middle of UKandNI as a point from where people look. That would mean much less distortion and equal distortion to the north as to the south.
If they are already are doing that, it just shows that it is a social problem and not a technical one.
YouTube Ordered To Remove "Illegal" Copyright Blocking Notices
Those millions they lost, where would they come from? I am guessing that is money from VEVO and spotify, not lost sales because people do not buy the records. Because that would mean that copyright is bad for sales.
And I should now seriously choose between Sony and GEMA? I choose not to choose. I choose copyleft.
How Mobile Apps Are Reinventing the Worst of the Software Industry
Even if it is a website I visit each and every day, I do not need an app for one specific website. Provide me wth a rss feed and mobile friendly layout and I am good to go.
Many others would not even need a rss feed. Just a different CSS when a mobile app is loaded and I am good to go.
At home I just do my banking via a website. Why would I need an app on my phone? Why not the same website? They already have that developed. They already have people working on that. It works on multiple platforms. Just use that.
Ask Slashdot: When Is a Better Career Opportunity Worth a Pay Cut?
If it is a small paycut, then you can perhaps get more. I have experienced this same several times. Each situation is different. Sometimes you need to follow your feeling, sometimes you need to be rational.
What can help is to make a personal vission and mission statement. Write it down and let others read it and ask them if that is something they recognize you in. Don't leave out your non-work related goals.
If anything, t will help you understand what you actually want and where your priorities are. Then compare that with what you have and what is offerd and it will be easier to decide.
Ask Slashdot: When Is a Better Career Opportunity Worth a Pay Cut?
... and you need to be brutally honest about.
This. Also be honest what you really want. What do you understand is a 'carrer' and why do you want it. Is it because you like to lead (manage) people that you wnat to get hgher up, or that you want the money? Or is it knowledge?Do you plan to have or already have kids? Do you want to be a part of their life, or will you be downgrading when that happens?
What are the downsides for you? e.g. when you are at the bottom, everybody might be your friend, when you get higher up, that will change. Don't expect to be invited by the guys for a beer. And if you invite yourself, you will always be an outsider. You will be always 'the boss', so they will not let themselves go and if they do, what will you do? Fire them or do as if nothing happend?
Do you have the skills to go in the direction you want to go? Not the technical ones, but the social ones. Ask people what kind of a manager you will be and if you will be good at it.
And remember that the grass is always greener at the other side. Also look at the positive parts of where you are now.
Copyright Ruling On Publishing Calculated Results: Common Sense Breaks Out
This is between companies, so the laws are differently, or at least interpreted differently.
Now try that with a company on one side and an individual on the other side. Now switch sides.
Logic would say that there would be no differnce. The reality would be differnt.
