GD: How difficult was it to put yourself in 1950s London? Did you have to do a lot of research for that?
The military has struggled, since social media began, to figure out how exactly troops should be allowed to participate – if at all. Network administrators at Air Force bases already put strict limitations on what sites their troops can and cannot visit. Many airmen can’t access Danger Room, for example — or any site with the word “blog” in the URL. That’s in addition to Defense Department-wide bans on YouTube, MySpace and other social networking sites. Army secrecy regulations, read literally, make it next-to-impossible for average soldiers to blog. Yet leading generals, deployed to war zones, are keeping online journals themselves. And the Department of Defense press office is making concerted push to reach out to bloggers and non-traditional media.
Grooved into the nervous systems of anyone who came of age in the ’80s and ’90s was also a persistent fear of disappearing data. “Computers” were identified with caprice. Everyone knew the ice-blood dread of having whole term papers disappear from MacWrite or Word. (You were cautioned not just to back up but to print, at every juncture.) Then came the hard lesson of the century’s end: Economies could vanish too. The crash of the dotcom market reinforced the impression that the internet was itself a soap bubble.

Let’s Encrypt’s free and automated HTTPS certification is designed to make it easy for individuals without technical expertise or resources to encrypt their sites. But its automation also helps big companies trying to roll out HTTPS to a large number of customers. WordPress, for instance, announced just last week that all sites hosted on WordPress with custom URLs will now be encrypted by default using Let’s Encrypt’s certificates. And that automation is set to get more sophisticated in the coming months, says Peter Eckersley, a technologist with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has helped to create and maintain the Let’s Encrypt certification software. Upcoming versions, he says, will be capable of more detailed configurations—geekier tasks like making sure the certificate properly displays its expiration date to browsers and uses the most secure encryption algorithms. “We want to not only get a certificate and install it for you, but also deal with all the behind the scenes settings to get things right and have HTTPS actually be secured,” Eckersley says.
In the back of the room, Kuryan looks nervous for the first time, shifting uncomfortably in his chair until it’s his turn in front of the projector. He tries a new line on the bored-looking audience. “Even a technologically challenged babushka can do it in 15 minutes.” Crickets.
There’s been some debate about whether iPhones and mirrorless cameras might unseat single-lens reflex cameras eventually, but the graph proves that amongst photojournalists, that’s not going to happen any time soon. According to the graph, 88 percent of the award-winning photographers were made with the trusty SLRs.
“Venue in criminal cases is more than a technicality; it involves ‘matters that touch closely the fair administration of criminal justice and public confidence in it,'” the judges wrote in their opinion (.pdf). “This is especially true of computer crimes in the era of mass interconnectivity. Because we conclude that venue did not lie in New Jersey, we will reverse the District Court’s venue determination and vacate Auernheimer’s conviction.”
Kiran Karnick, president of The National Association of Software and Services Companies, the country’s main information technology trade group, said his organization would take up the matter with the government.
How shameless? Well, it’s not original at all. Cards Against Originality isn’t “inspired by” CAH or anything—it’s the actual cards. All the originals, plus all five expansions. The app “is intended to fill in when you forget your physical cards,” Whitfield says on the website. “This is a shameless copy of the real Cards Against Humanity. They deserve all the credit.”

To run layers in Bing Maps, you’ll need the latest version of Microsoft Silverlight and a supported browser. It doesn’t work properly in Google Chrome (at least on the Mac), but IE8, Firefox and Safari had no problems. If you’re using the Ajax controls to view Bing Maps (instead of Silverlight), then you won’t be able to see the OpenStreetMaps layer, but Microsoft says this is something may make its way into the non-Silverlight version eventually.
There’s no recourse for disgruntled Oculus backers. But next year, when some other wildly innovative project gets bootstrapped on a crowdfunding site, the backers may actually root for a massive sale to Facebook, Google, or Apple. That’s because, under SEC rules currently in the works, crowdfunders will have the option of getting company shares in return for their cash. Equity-based crowdfunding was authorized by the JOBS Act way back in April 2012, four months before Oculus Rift even existed as a Kickstarter project. But the official rules aren’t yet in place. In February, a month before Oculus sold to Facebook, the SEC was still soliciting public comment on 585 pages of proposed regulations, and now it’s digesting all those comments.
In addition to providing web space where students can automatically install open source software such as WordPress, MediaWiki, and Known, the school buys every student their own internet domain name. The school even became an official reseller of domain names in order to facilitate the process. It’s an idea that Groom is so passionate about, he co-founded Reclaim Your Domain to promote the idea outside of the university as well.
U.S. officials have said very little about Levinson’s case – and what they have said has apparently been misleading, as a gambit to entice the Iranians into releasing Levinson. In March 2011, for the fourth anniversary of Levinson’s disappearance, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton referred only to Levinson being held “somewhere in southwest Asia.” Referring to an offer of Iranian “assistance,” Clinton added, “We would appreciate the Iranian government’s efforts in this matter.” U.S. officials talking anonymously to the AP have concluded the Iranian government lied about conducting raids to learn Levinson’s whereabouts.

“We’re excited to be increasing our contributions to the local economy with an additional $1 billion investment to expand our data center and supporting facilities,” Apple spokesman John Rosenstock said in an email to The Associated Press. “As part of our growth, we plan to hire 100 employees and expect construction will support an additional 300 jobs.”
The announcement comes on the heels of Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California) scheduling a hearing for Jan. 18 before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
