The naked truth about Facebook’s revenge porn tool
This is absolutely spot on.

If Facebook wanted to implement a truly trusted system for revenge porn victims, they could put the photo hashing on the user side of things -- so only the hash is transferred to Facebook. To verify the claim that the image is truly a revenge porn issue, the victim could have the images verified through a trusted revenge porn advocacy organization. Theoretically, the victim then would have a verified, privacy-safe version of the photo, and a hash that could be also sent to Google and other sites.

SmoothLifeL
'A continuous version of Conway's Life, using floating point values instead of integers'. 'SmoothLifeL supports many interesting phenomena such as gliders that can travel in any direction, rotating pairs of gliders, 'wickstretchers' and the appearance of elastic tension in the 'cords' that join the blobs.' paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/1111.1567 , and slides: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyTIXRhjXII
