Flickr: The Help Forum: [Official Thread] Call for stories about Flickr's history
Hi all. I'm giving a talk in the spring about the processes around the innovations that have come to define Flickr, to try to better understand how Flickr has become what it is (and has been).

While talking with people about this, I've come to realize/remember that a lot of the core features of Flickr were actually developed or fleshed out by the community, by all of you! For example: geotags and machine tags came from community use of the basic tags feature; Groups have evolved in many ways through the use of the initial, simple Groups feature.

Do you have any memories of how these things came to pass? I'm not looking for bragging or claims on invention, rather just for stories about the early days of any feature that's become a core part of how you use Flickr.

Argument preview: Social media as a crime scene : SCOTUSblog
In next week’s case, the Supreme Court has the task of clarifying what a person “means to communicate” when speaking in terms of violence on the Internet, and also what constitutes “an intent” to commit the crime of making an illegal threat.

Basically, this case presents the Court with two choices — first, to look at the issue of intent from a subjective perspective, focusing on the speaker, or to look at it from an objective view, focusing on both the speaker and on a hypothetical “reasonable person” exposed to the message.

Anthony Elonis and his supporters argue that his postings on Facebook were not “true threats” because he actually had no “subjective intent to threaten another person.” If that is the test, a jury would have to make its own assessment of what an Internet user like Elonis did have in mind, examining the specific words used and their context.

The federal government and its supporters, however, argue that Elonis’s statements were judged — and should have been judged — by two measures: first, did he make his statements intentionally (without regard to what he was thinking), and, second, would “a reasonable person” read the words used and their context as conveying to the target of the message that they would be injured or killed?

The Court probably will be able to pick one of those outcomes without pausing to decide whether Elonis should have been free to speak out because he was discussing public policy questions; even his own lawyers say he was speaking only about his own, personal frustrations with life, but his forum was, indeed, a public one, one in which his words may well have been picked up and conveyed to a much wider audience than the specific people about whom Elonis wrote.

The effect of the decision that does emerge almost certainly would be felt in the very public space of such Internet sites as Facebook. For that reason, Elonis is running interference for the Internet as a whole, and especially for those sites where expression is robust, indeed. Much of the discussion in the case, in fact, is on the potential impact on the very provocative postings of rap music, and its fairly common idiom of violence.

Thoughts on Google+ — Medium
When it comes right down to it, maybe I just don’t want to admit that I spent 3½ years working on something that will become irrelevant. Even if Google+ regains focus and simplifies its mission, I want to believe that we were working on something significant and that had an opinion about what the world should look like. Lately, I just feel like Google+ is confused and adrift at sea.

Fight Over Yahoo’s Use of Flickr Photos - WSJ
Yahoo’s plan to sell the images appears “a little shortsighted,” said Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield, who left the company in 2008. “It’s hard to imagine the revenue from selling the prints will cover the cost of lost goodwill.”

A Few Thoughts on Cryptographic Engineering: Zero Knowledge Proofs: An illustrated primer
One of the best things about modern cryptography is the beautiful terminology. You could start any number of punk bands (or Tumblrs) named after cryptography terms like 'hard-core predicate', 'trapdoor function', ' or 'impossible differential cryptanalysis'. And of course, I haven't even mentioned the one term that surpasses all of these. That term is 'zero knowledge'.

also, starting to think this is basically the technical version/basis of gibson's the peripheral...

[messaging] Second thoughts on WhatsApp encryption
It's becoming clearer over time that holding or routing users personal communications is more of a liability than a profit centre. Targeting ads based on personal communications hardly works - people rarely talk about commercially relevant stuff via WhatsApp or iMessage or Facebook Messenger. Meanwhile, a few governments are getting upset that they Silicon Valley has all this information (and thus power) but isn't giving it to them on a silver platter. The recent notion in the British Parliament that tech companies should be simultaneously investigating all their users and hold the blame if ANY of them turn out to be a terrorist is highly similar to what governments did to banking in the 80's and 90's through the invention of anti-money laundering laws. Nobody in the tech industry wants to end up like HSBC; widely reviled because everyone "knows" they were involved in drug dealing and sanctions evasion (this isn't even remotely true). In this light, WhatsApp's move looks highly prescient. Currently there are no information laundering laws. It looks like things might be heading in that direction though, at least in some parts of the world. Better to make a stand now and put yourself in a position where you cannot possibly know what your users are doing, than end up with lots of data lying around and be retroactively found guilty by politicians for failing to do more. It won't change your profit margin much because this data was all useless for making money anyway, and it can help protect you in future, assuming you're based in America and CALEA holds.
