If Ridesharing Is Banned, What About Ride-Trading?
If Seattle is anything like New York they make a ton of money on taxi medallions. Less taxis, less revenue. :-(
A Look at the NSA's Most Powerful Internet Attack Tool
What I have noticed is that there is a story in the media every damn day about the over reach of NSA and arghh..people are outraged. Oh it's horrible, etc etc.
Amazingly enough, no one seems to want to do anything about it. Where are those stories? Where is the demand for congressional oversight?
We get the NSA we deserve because we the people are doing nothing to reign them in.
Tor Is Building an Anonymous Instant Messenger
I wish I could mod you up to 1000.
Tor is solid.
The feds ability to connect the dots of people too dumb to cover their tracks != Tor insecurity.
Ask Slashdot: Should I Get Google Glass?
The $1500.00 price tag set me back as well. I don't love being a first adopter that much! There are five alternatives to Google Glass here if you want to consider something more reasonable.
Map of Publicly-Funded Creationism Teaching
As long as Louisiana schools are teaching it using Louisiana tax money why should I care? I'm in Maryland. Let 'em waste their money any way they see fit.
Ask Slashdot: What Does Edward Snowden Deserve?
It's always the same: "What does Edward Snowden deserve?". How about "what should we do about NSA's over reach?". Lost in this discussion seems to be any kind of seriousness about reigning in NSA. At least in the 70s when the CIA was caught engineering coups they had to have congressional oversight placed upon them.
Edward Snowden Says NSA Engages In Industrial Espionage
said no one ever. Most governments do what they can to help the home team. The U.S. is not alone, it just has better tools than every other government.
Obama Announces Surveillance Reforms
So everything on the internet is still being monitored heavily? Makers sense,.... gotta fill up that new data center in Utah.
Doomsday Clock Remains at Five Minutes to Midnight
This reminds me of the color coding terror system. It's never going to be green. Think about it. What's the ideal time anyway on this clock? 6:05p ?
Canada Quietly Offering Sanctuary To Data From the US
No secret that the NSA works with Canada, New Zealand, UK and Australia on ECHELON so anything in those jurisdictions is easily subject to acquisition. Equally easy would be any jurisdiction in Commonwealth countries or countries that are desiring entry into the Commonwealth who would allow this on their soil just to curry favor with the UK.
Interview: Alan Adler Answers Your Questions About Coffee and Throwing Objects
I found there was a big improvement in taste quality when I lowered the temperature, but I was troubled by the fact that pour over was taking about four or five minutes to run through. I had read that the longer you drag out the coffee brewing process, the more bitter the taste of the brew.
I remember stumbling onto cold brewing coffee and loved the easier. milder flavor. Good article at Trader Joe's about this.. Although it's easy to do.....
- Sew together a muslin bag
- Pour in 1 pound of coarse grind coffee
- Lower that into 9 cups of cold water
- Let sit for 12 hours
Put a shot into your cup (1:4 ratio is good) and pour hot water over it. .It makes a nice concentrate that works great for iced coffee too!
US Federal Judge Rules NSA Data Collection Legal
This ruling was made by a Clinton appointee to nullify the decision made by a Bush appointee. Sometimes things are exactly what they appear to be.
Google Brings AmigaOS to Chrome Via Native Client Emulation
a new Duke Nuke... errrr ..... nevermind...

British Intelligence Responds To Slashdot About Man-in-Middle Attack
With all the uproar over US spying, you could always use a Tor solution that excludes US and US intelligence friendly exit nodes. PAPARouter (disclaimer: my company) is a router that has Tor in it and US and US friendly exit nodes are excluded (US, UK, Australia, New Zealand and all Commonwealth countries) by default. Anonymize several devices just hooking to the wireless access point. (Or build your own Onion-Pi from Adafruit and save a couple of bucks)
Ask Slashdot: I just downloaded Tor, am I being tracked/hacked?
Given that the FBI and other feds have taken a keen interest in exploiting the browser bundle, you could consider using a Tor router like PAPARouter. You can anonymize several devices easily and PAPARouter excludes exit nodes in the US, and all the US intelligence friendly countries (UK, Australia, New Zealand, and all the Commonwealth countries) by default.
8 Users of Silk Road Arrested, 'Many More To Come'
that this isn't a failure of the technology. Ulbricht made the mistake of allowing the feds to connect the dots. Silk Road apparently kept some kind of logs. Here's hoping you didn't buy from them.
