Or, rather, it’s better than TV. YouTube, Netflix, BuzzFeed, Spotify, and the myriad other high-quality video offerings online all mean you, the viewer, have a veritable smorgasbord. You can pick and choose what you like, play what you want. More options will abound. Spotify may be the new MTV, but this time it’ll be all about you.
All of the holes could allow an attacker to run malicious code on a user’s computer, the Redmond, Washington-based company said.
Enter the “roboadvisers,” so-called because they take the work done by old-fashioned human financial advisers and use algorithms to perform it instead. Led by Wealthfront and Betterment, these firms are young, mobile-first, and backed by millions of venture capital dollars. They know where the puck is headed (millennials investing passively), they’re up to speed on all the latest behavioral economics, and they can use modern technology to make it easier than ever to just hand your money over, answer a few questions about your risk appetite, and sit back, safe in the knowledge that no one’s going to be gambling your money away.
Precedings is meant to be complementary to the formal peer-reviewed process of publishing, Hanny said. “We don’t pretend that publishing in Precedings is the same as publishing in peer-reviewed journals,” he said. “Scientists do have informal documents that they share with one another, at meetings and such. We want to give them an opportunity so that those documents – the informal literature – can be archived, made citable, and readily available.”
Q: How do you see the reports changing in the future? What about the GVP in general?
A: As the world becomes more digital, GVP has lost some of the personal connections with contacts that have really strengthened the monthly Bulletin, the database of activity, and to some degree the Weekly in the past. People used to call in or fax information, but now, observers can just post reports on their own blogs or websites! We are in the process of really reconnecting with people and fostering better information exchange. We are also continuing to improve our website and how we communicate to reach as many people as possible. For the Weekly specifically, I would love to see better maps available for each volcano- perhaps something 3-D and interactive.

The induction ceremony was to take place on February 16th at Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco, at a book release party for Wired.com senior editor Kevin Poulsen’s new book Kingpin: How One Hacker Took Over the Billion-Dollar Cybercrime Underground. Now you knew the date and location of the Ring of Dishonor induction ceremony, but not the password to get in the door. That had to be gained by emailing Tim S. Hope’s “underworld name” at wired.com. For many potential inductees, this proved to be the hardest task of all.
Gorsuch day two! Trump’s nominee for Supreme Court justice, Neil Gorsuch, takes the hot seat on Capitol Hill once again today. Most likely to go well into the evening hours, lawmakers are expected to grill the judge on his stance on helping the middle class, religious freedom and separation of powers. Expect fireworks, as the Dems aren’t too happy that Obama’s old pick, Merrick Garland, was blocked by Republicans.
In the first half, the audience could probably have recited the lines along with the actors. The second half, in contrast, gives us some new material, including a great sketch at the Vogon Planning Council Meeting where each member is eventually shot for coughing. Maggs has done a terrific job of taking about four radio-series’-worth of content and boiling it down to a new story–not easy but done very well, inevitably through a kind of “greatest hits” format, partly compered by Max Quordlepleen at Milliways. Wisely, Arthur mentions that huge chunks of his life seem to be missing, which the audience appreciates. Happily, Douglas Adams’ performance of Agrajag is retained, and Samantha Beart does a terrific turn as Random Dent, allowing Arthur to come good on his promise in the first half, forbidding her to ever marry a Vogon. Kudos, too, for the versatile supporting players, Philip Pope, Andrew Secombe and Toby Longworth, who gamely flit from part to part, holding the whole cosmic enchilada together.
