James Bond Film Skyfall Inspired By Stuxnet Virus

too_old_to_be_irate Re:Exploding pens have been replaced with ads (187 comments)

Je m'appelle Bond. James Bond.
Saw this last night here in France. No 30 minutes of adverts, just on with the film.
And just for the /. crowd, there was a laconic, throw away reference to 'security through obscurity'.
That's all I'm saying.

UK Schools At Risk of Microsoft Lock-In

too_old_to_be_irate Re:A good start (162 comments)

Well, this simply isn't true any more. (Yes, I too work in schools, and have for the past ten years.) At County level, there may be subtle pressure to adopt a certain policy, or set of standards, but there is nothing to stop individual schools doing what ever they please with their IT budgets. Indeed, the last three schools I have worked at disposed of the remnants of their RM Networks in the dim and distant past, and have no intention of ever going back. True, the schools are still predominantly MS oriented, but that is for fairly clear reasons covered by other posters in this discussion.

Wikileaks is developing an uncensorable version of Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis. Our primary interests are oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we also expect to be of assistance to those in the west who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their own governments and corporations. We aim for maximum political impact; this means our interface is identical to Wikipedia and usable by non-technical people. We have received over 1.1 million documents so far from dissident communities and anonymous sources."
