Because I’m - I’m worried that if I don’t go figure myself out…
if I don’t go, like, land on my own two feet…
then I’m gonna fuck this whole thing up, and this is too important.

CIA’s “Facebook” Program Dramatically Cut Agency’s Costs (by surikanta)

But nature or not, you’re never gonna be happy if you go through life just letting things happen to you. You gotta DO stuff.
And if you don’t know what you WANNA do, you gotta try a bunch of different things or you’ll never find out.

Something tells us Lot’s daughters would lose any drinking game centered around “Never Have I Ever.” If you’ve done it in a cave—and you’ve done it with your dad—you’ve probably also done it tangled in Fruit By The Foot or by accident with a vegetable.

Santa Gets Hacked! (by Twist and Shout)

Mentally decoding the missive, Blok realised it was spelling one facetious word, over and over: “Rats”. A glance at the output of the nearby Morse printer confirmed this. The incoming Morse then got more personal, mocking Marconi: “There was a young fellow of Italy, who diddled the public quite prettily,” it trilled. Further rude epithets - apposite lines from Shakespeare - followed. Dot-dash-diss: The gentleman hacker’s 1903 lulz

3D HOLOGRAM DEMONSTRATION (by immersivetech)

Two men are arrested, but the police do not possess enough information for a conviction. Following the separation of the two men, the police offer both a similar deal—if one testifies against his partner (defects/betrays), and the other remains silent (cooperates/assists), the betrayer goes free and the cooperator receives the full one-year sentence. If both remain silent, both are sentenced to only one month in jail for a minor charge. If each ‘rats out’ the other, each receives a three-month sentence. Each prisoner must choose either to betray or remain silent; the decision of each is kept quiet. What should they do? Prisoner’s dilemma

Cui and Stolfo say they’ve reverse engineered software that controls common Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printers. Those printers allow firmware upgrades through a process called “Remote Firmware Update.” Every time the printer accepts a job, it checks to see if a software update is included in that job. But they say printers they examined don’t discriminate the source of the update software – a typical digital signature is not used to verify the upgrade software’s authenticity – so anyone can instruct the printer to erase its operating software and install a booby-trapped version.

Some hiring managers hate the idea of hiring interns. They see interns as unformed and insufficiently skilled. To some extent, that’s true. Interns are not as experienced as experienced employees (no. Really?!). You’re going to have to invest in them a little bit more and it’s going to take some time before they’re up to speed. The good news about our field is that the really great programmers often started programming when they were 10 years old. And while everyone else their age was running around playing “soccer” (this is a game that many kids who can’t program computers play that involves kicking a spherical object called a “ball” with their feet (I know, it sounds weird)), they were in their dad’s home office trying to get the Linux kernel to compile. Instead of chasing girls in the playground, they were getting into flamewars on Usenet about the utter depravity of programming languages that don’t implement Haskell-style type inference. Instead of starting a band in their garage, they were implementing a cool hack so that when their neighbor stole bandwidth over their open-access WIFI point, all the images on the web appeared upside-down.
