Encryption under fire in Europe as France and Germany call for decrypt law
A fresh chapter of the crypto wars looks to be opening up in Europe, after the French and German interior ministers took to a podium yesterday to lobby for a law change that would enable courts to demand that Internet companies decrypt data to help further criminal investigations. So, in other words, to effectively push for end-to-end encryption to be outlawed. Yes we’ve been here before — many times.

Tofino Project Goals Update – Project Tofino
Second, we’re building an initial browser ui layer that in and of itself should be intuitive to use for users of existing browsers. When we do want users to test a new concept we don’t want them to have to learn ten new things, we just want to them to be able to browse the web with a single new thing. This is basic research methodology — if we don’t control for other factors we won’t be able to be confident in results from a given experiment.

A few HTML tips
You can also use SVG sprites to implement vector icons in your website, instead of using a Web Font – which is a hack, and might not yield perfect results. This is because browsers treat Web Font icons as text, and not as images. And there are other potential problems, like content/ad blockers disabling the download of Web Fonts. If you would like to learn more about this, watch this talk by Sarah Semark about why using SVG for icons is better than using a Web Font. You can also read more about this technique on CSS-Tricks.

Let's Talk About Beacons
When your iPhone is listening for beacons, it’s simply tuning in to that advertising channel. While it’s listening, it is completely silent, meaning that nothing about your presence is revealed to anyone, including other nearby smartphones, listening devices, and the beacons themselves. That’s at the hardware level. At the software level, it’s up to your apps to behave like good citizens. Just as apps can attempt to share your location data as determined by GPS, so too can they attempt to share data about what beacons they see.

Arxiv.org: Losing My Revolution: How Many Resources Shared on Social Media Have Been Lost?
Social media content has grown exponentially in the recent years and the role of social media has evolved from just narrating life events to actually shaping them. In this paper we explore how many resources shared in social media are still available on the live web or in public web archives. By analyzing six di erent event-centric datasets of resources shared in social media in the period from June 2009 to March 2012, we found about 11% lost and 20% archived after just a year and an average of 27% lost and 41% archived after two and a half years. Furthermore, we found a nearly linear relationship between time of sharing of the resource and the percentage lost, with a slightly less linear relationship between time of sharing and archiving coverage of the resource. From this model we conclude that after the rst year of publishing, nearly 11% of shared resources will be lost and after that we will continue to lose 0.02% per day.

Why you should be paying attention to Wikidata and GLAM
Almost everywhere you turned at Wikimania 2016 in Esino Lario, the annual gathering of the Wikimedia community, you could hear about structured data in the new Wikimedia community, Wikidata. Wikidata unlocks fifteen years of data collection and curation by volunteers to create a language-independent, linked, open, and structured database that is usable and friendly for both people and computers. Wikidata allows our volunteer communities to unleash the truly multilingual and global collaboration of Wikipedia, so that we can index and describe topics as diverse as food, paintings and medicinefor a global community, not just for a particular language or region.

Conceptual blurb?
It’s a clever idea.
Rather than doing a traditional, leather-bound
portfolio, why not make one on Blurb? And once you’ve decided to
do that, why not make a virtue of it rather than trying to hide it?
That’s what Thijs groot Wassink and Ruben Lundgren figured,
putting their images into the Blurb layout then including the
program’s text boxes and instructions. “A portfolio with a black,
leather cover is a bit boring and it doesn’t really suit our work,” says
Wassink. “But a Blurb book is easily accessible, you can make it
really quickly, and you can add in new work with every book you
print. We just exposed the structure and followed the workings of it.”
They also made a joke of it, printing off batches of each edit and
dating and numbering them, rather than allowing customers to print
off copies ad infinitum, which is, as Wassink points out, the whole
point of Blurb. Witty and humorous, it’s a classic Wassink Lundgren
intervention. The two young Dutch photographers have been
collaborating since 2005 and their past projects have included
creating a catalogue by shooting the collector’s prints in situ at
home and placing plastic bottles around Beijing then photographing
people picking them up. “It’s conceptual documentary photography
– we’re interested in exploring the world around us but we’re also
interested in the medium, in how images work,” says Wassink.
“Hans Kemna asked us to photograph his photography collection
and we decided to photograph the works in his place,” he adds.

Empty Bottles
came about by accident – we were shooting a picture
in Beijing and someone came into the frame and picked up the
bottle. We thought that was interesting. Traditionally in
documentary photography you try not to intervene, to not be a part
of what you shoot, but as Westerners who had just arrived in China
we couldn’t pretend to be part of the society. We felt we had to
address this issue, and tried to do so through exploring and playing
with these ideas.”
The resulting book won the Prix de Livre at Rencontres d’Arles in
2007, and Martin Parr exhibited it in his exhibition at the New York
Photo Festival in 2008. Parr also wrote the introduction to Wassink
Lundgren’s Blurb portfolio and recommended they get in touch with
London-based photography agent David Birkitt, who’s representing
them in the newly launched DMB Media. DMB pitches itself as a new
kind of agency encompassing both fine art and advertising, and for
Wassink Lundgren that’s ideal – they don’t worry too much about
the distinction between the two. They recently shot a batch of Boots
products in the chemist’s in-house photobooth, for example, and
want to pitch the idea as an ad campaign.
“You have the machine and the products right there, why not?”
laughs Wassink. “It’s just about observing well and giving things
that little twist.”

Its prized public faces are scrambling for an exit, and the company has laid off 15 percent of its workforce. Its core business—internet search and advertising—is negatively valued. Looming over all of this is a prospective sale of the company’s core assets, bids for which have reportedly reached more than $5 billion.

No One Can Stop Ad Blocking. Not Even Facebook
There’s a fair amount that Facebook can do to make it harder for machines to tell which blocks of code on its website refer to ads and which refer to conventional content. But the company does plan to make it clear to users which content is paid advertising, and that could provide the clues ad blockers need to spot the ads. Certainly, the makers of ad blockers are skeptical. Facebook’s plan is “a little adrift of reality,” says Ben Williams, of Eyeo GmbH, the company behind the popular Ad Block Plus plugin. “Circumvention tactics have been around for 10 years, and because ad blockers have the support of an open source community, the workarounds they develop just have to be that much better than the previous circumvention.” Indeed, the popular ad blocker uBlock Origin is already capable of filtering sponsored advertising from many websites. We were unable to reach Raymond Hill, the developer of uBlock Origin. But he did leave a comment on Hacker News, a popular online hangout for programmers, indicating that he’s already looking at some of the possible ways that Facebook might try bypass ad blockers.

El Paquete is a weekly service where someone (typically found through word of mouth) comes to your home with a disk (usually a 1TB external USB drive) containing a weekly download of the most recent films, soap operas, documentaries, sport, music, mobile apps, magazines, and even web sites. For 2 CUC a week Cubans have access to a huge repository of media while turning a blind eye to copyright.

Economist.com: Daily chart: The world’s most liveable cities
Coming up with a list of the world’s best cities is a near-impossible task. The bustle and hum of megacities like São Paulo or Tokyo might be too much for some people; others might struggle with the pace of life in Cleveland or Frankfurt. A ranking released on August 18th by our corporate cousin, the Economist Intelligence Unit, attempts instead to quantify the world’s most “liveable” cities—that is, which locations around the world provide the best or the worst living conditions. The index, measured out of 100, considers 30 factors related to safety, health care, educational resources, infrastructure and the environment to calculate scores for 140 cities.

I am left with a great feeling of unease if not disgust at the Valley's long con...
I am left with a great feeling of unease if not disgust at the Valley's long con on the concept of free expression. Social media likes to say it's the great equalizer, the democratic weapon. Twitter likes to pretend it's single handedly responsible for the Arab Spring, and with great irony they are now suppressing some of the results of that message that are no longer "on brand".

Social media isn't about, and has never been about, freedom of expression, as much as sometimes we seem to think it is. It's about saying whatever you need to to get scale, and then suppressing dissident communities that might cost you ad revenue or you personally find distasteful once you have the power and authority to do so. It's a cultural appropriation of a hacker ethos for the sake of a business purpose.

As for this action, very few things enrage me as much as Wahhabism and Islamic extremism; in fact, sometimes I struggle with the cognitive desire to write off Islam and the Muslim world as a whole because of ISIL and its followers.

However, I don't believe that this idea makes much sense. You cannot kill a meme by driving it off your platform; religious zealots have traditionally faced much worse persecution than being banned from a service. They will spring up again in places harder to detect, with tools that strengthen their communities. Their enclaves will no longer coexist alongside peaceful messages; they will be harbored entirely within their own safe spaces, echo chambers that strengthen their hatred in their isolation. Instead of a potential ISIL sympathizer seeing ISIL messages alongside trending topics against extremism and terrorism, they will spend time on extremist forums in which there is no dissenting opinion. They will not see pictures of people lamenting the death, they will have communities where this death is entirely praised. Instead of seeing football scores or other young people facing their same problems that may have differing religious opinions, they will find more people willing to indoctrinate them when exploring whether or not they find meaning in Islamic extremism.

Twitter may think they are taking the oxygen out of the atmosphere by banning them, but in reality they are simply shifting the fire to someplace where it can burn hotter.

One advantage that the Samsung drive has is that it does NOT become blazingly hot during use. The Sandisk drive certainly does.

Facebook's plans to circumvent adblockers is illegal
In February this year, we obtained a letter from the European Commission stating that such activites in Europe would be a breach of Regulation 2002/58/EC (known as the ePrivacy Directive). The letter was in response to questions we asked the European Commission specifically with regards to the detection and circumvention of adblocking tools and whether or not such activities would be lawful under European laws and regulations.

In our letter we pointed out three issues with regards to the detection and circumvention of adblocking tools by web sites with the second point focused specifically on whether or not deliberate circumvention of an adblocker would be unlawful on the basis that it is a relevant piece of softw3are as per Recital 66 of the Citizens' Rights Directive; and Commission's response clearly states:

> "Recital 66 indicates that the user's consent to access and storage of information in their terminal equipment may be expressed by using the appropriate settings of a browser or other application, provided that this is technically possible and effecting, in accordance with the relevant provisions of Directive 95/46/EC" (sic). Thus, Recital 66 is not restrictive to browser settings."

What this essentially means is that by using an adblocking tool (whether that be a browser plugin or other piece of software) citizens are enforcing their right to refuse the placing of advertising on their terminal equipment and therefore if a publisher chooses to circumvent that choice they would be in breach of the Regulation.

Wikipedia.org: ZFS — ZFS data integrity
For ZFS, data integrity is achieved by using a Fletcher-based checksum or a SHA-256 hash throughout the file system tree. Each block of data is checksummed and the checksum value is then saved in the pointer to that block—rather than at the actual block itself. Next, the block pointer is checksummed, with the value being saved at its pointer. This checksumming continues all the way up the file system's data hierarchy to the root node, which is also checksummed, thus creating a Merkle tree. In-flight data corruption or phantom reads/writes (the data written/read checksums correctly but is actually wrong) are undetectable by most filesystems as they store the checksum with the data. ZFS stores the checksum of each block in its parent block pointer so the entire pool self-validates. When a block is accessed, regardless of whether it is data or meta-data, its checksum is calculated and compared with the stored checksum value of what it "should" be. If the checksums match, the data are passed up the programming stack to the process that asked for it; if the values do not match, then ZFS can heal the data if the storage pool provides data redundancy (such as with internal mirroring), assuming that the copy of data is undamaged and with matching checksums. If the storage pool consists of a single disk, it is possible to provide such redundancy by specifying copies=2 (or copies=3), which means that data will be stored twice (or three times) on the disk, effectively halving (or, for copies=3, reducing to one third) the storage capacity of the disk. If redundancy exists, ZFS will fetch a copy of the data (or recreate it via a RAID recovery mechanism), and recalculate the checksum—ideally resulting in the reproduction of the originally expected value. If the data passes this integrity check, the system can then update the faulty copy with known-good data so that redundancy can be restored.

ZFS End-to-End Data Integrity (Jeff Bonwick's Blog)
The job of any filesystem boils down to this: when asked to read a block, it should return the same data that was previously written to that block. If it can't do that -- because the disk is offline or the data has been damaged or tampered with -- it should detect this and return an error. Incredibly, most filesystems fail this test. They depend on the underlying hardware to detect and report errors. If a disk simply returns bad data, the average filesystem won't even detect it.

Apple.com: 2011 Macbook Pro 3 Beeps/Freeze
I've searched endlessly through the forums only to have come across two "solutions" or reasonable explanations. 1 of the solutions suggest that there is foil or some type of aluminum within the serial code sticker that rests above the ram contacts. I suppose the logic is that with time, the adhesive has melted showing this foil or conductive material more, so when the bottom panel is pushed it presses this sticker towards the ram contact causing the freeze/3 beep code.
