Christchurch shootings: The rising new threat of far-right violence - BBC News

Cultural references

'White genocide' conspiracy theory
The bizarre conception of a monolithic genetic "white" culture under worldwide attack is a mainstay of the alt-right - although most of the amorphous movement's leaders would outwardly denounce specific acts of violence like the attack in Christchurch.

so, PizzaGate guy unearthed old unsavour tweets from Gunn, right-wing alt-righ far-right neo-nazi sites twitter pushed that, Disney felt they had to react, gave the Gunn the boot. That the right-wing cybernazis are behind that, is well known, Cast of movie franchise feel confident enough to stand up to it. Question is, after the Star Wars Community backlash against the new Star Wars movies and some not being well received critically and $$$ as expected, and the head of the franchise had to go, who will Disney side with - in this situation? ... seems like this was a Faux outrage machine - more like organised cybernazi mob mass emailing against Gunn. Was _NOT_ MSM as debate, Gunn and his Tweets/past, Disney came out of the blue with the boot for Gunn. //&! https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/aug/05/why-are-employers-allowed-police-what-we-say-private-citizens-angela-williamson-cricket-australia - Sacking people for their political opinions expressed online is a worrying trend

Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Reddit's fate hangs in the balance as revolt against CEO makes waves | Technology | The Guardian
While more than 200,000 Redditors want Ellen Pao to resign, readers are jumping ship to budding competitor sites as top brass pushes to go mainstream [...] Redditors – as users are called – have accused the site of increasingly trying to monetize its popularity, and it appears their sentiments came to a head last Thursday, when Reddit’s popular director of talent, Victoria Taylor, was let go from her post. [...] a company torn between catering to commercial interests, and an obsession with giving voice to every possible perspective. [...] But some have suggested that the latest revolt is a flashpoint in a wider clash of cultures. The web’s largest agglomeration of niche enthusiasts provides a portal for people to make friends and enemies in a wide range of different communities, including some less reputable forums that have come under increasing scrutiny. &! bit.ly/1NMqxYG - Memo to VCs: Not every site with gargantuan traffic is destined to be a billion dollar public company

BBC News - Twitter boss admits firm is failing victims of trolling
The debate over so-called internet trolls - people who use social media accounts to abuse others - has been attracting headlines for several years now. The daughter of actor Robin Williams signed off Twitter following taunts about her father's suicide. Screenwriter Jane Goldman deleted her account following abuse of her family. And Sara Payne, whose daughter Sarah was abducted and murdered in 2000, said she was leaving the social media network after years of online harassment.

After celebrity nude leaks, Apple is finally taking security a little more seriously | PandoDaily
Now it seems that Apple is at least attempting to make its efforts to fix obvious security problems with its service a little easier to understand. I’m sure that has more to do with the allegations that it was responsible for the reprehensible leak of stolen nude photographs than with a new sense of responsibility to consumers, but we’ll have to take what we can get. Maybe the lesson will stick and the company will decide to be a little more forthcoming in the future. There is no reasonable expectation of perfect security in modern society, but we can at least strive for transparency from companies like Apple when our privacy is threatened. Better to know that something can’t be kept secure than to think it’s safe and remain ignorant of any threats.

Fappening: Lawrence, Dunst, Upton - Nacktbilder von Promis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schon wieder sind die Frauen schuld. Dabei erklärt sich die Tatsache, dass weniger Männer-Nacktbilder durch das Netz geistern, vermutlich nicht allein dadurch, dass die Herren der Sicherheit von Apple weniger vertraut haben und bessere Schutzsysteme hatten. Sondern durch die Tatsache, dass die nackten Männer kaum jemanden interessieren. Ein nackter Mann ist ein nackter Mann. Ein Bild von einer nackten Frau, das sie angreifbar macht, ist für viele ein Grund, sich daran aufzugeilen und einen Kommentar abzugeben. Und dann ist da noch die große Frage, die über der ganzen Debatte schwebt: Warum nehmen sich Menschen überhaupt nackt auf? Für viele eine klare Sache: Eitelkeit. Entsprechende Kommentare sind von Häme durchdrungen. Sie missachten, dass Frauen nicht zwangsläufig Nacktbilder aufnehmen, um einem Mann einen Gefallen zu tun. Für viele sind sie Ausdruck, dass ihr Körper, ihre Sexualität, ihnen gehört. Sie machen Aufnahmen von sich und für sich.

A Letter To Jennifer Lawrence | TechCrunch
If I and other industry reporters like Mat Honan don’t know how exactly to absolutely protect ourselves, because the targets and tools are always changing, how will people who don’t have our exposure to tech? The onus is on Apple and other tech platforms like Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft to keep their customers — us — safe. Though stolen photos are being shared that have been extracted from Android and Windows Phone backups, too, I’m singling out Apple here because Apple, beyond any other tech company, prides itself on a seamless consumer experience. It’s done a very good job of hiding the technical aspects of its products for the sake of user friendliness: “It just works.” Well, not in this case. +++ !!! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/03/seth-green-huff-post_n_5761508.html + huff.to/WbN24c

Instead, it looks more like a frantic legal tactic to protect Poole from copyright lawsuits from Lawrence and others. By now, Poole’s lawyers have probably advised him that copyright owners must register their photographs with the Copyright Office in order to collect what is known as “statutory damages” — which allow owners to collect up to $150,000 for every infringing photograph. 4Chan, in other words, has likely raced to erect the DMCA shield before the celebrities register their photos." +++ https://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2014/09/03/3-count-4chan-4-takedown/ "4chan Will Now Remove Awful Images—If They’re Copyrighted"

There will always be another leak, because there is always curiosity in the bodies of nude celebrity women. There is always danger in being an Other. [...] It goes without saying that there aren’t many nude photos of men being released. Men are largely free to bare their bodies as they choose without repercussion, unless, as is the case of Dave Franco with Allison Brie and Justin Verlander with Upton, the man happens to be in a picture with a young woman, collateral damage. [...] BREAKING: beneath their clothes, celebrities are naked. What these people are doing is reminding women that, no matter who they are, they are still women. They are forever vulnerable.

Notes on the Celebrity Data Theft | Hacker News
!!! - https://www.nikcub.com/posts/notes-on-the-celebrity-data-theft/ "In reviewing months worth of forum posts, image board posts, private emails, replies for requests for services, etc. nowhere was the FindMyPhone API brute force technique (revealed publicly and exploited in iBrute) mentioned. This doesn’t mean that it wasn’t used privately by the hackers – but judging by the skill levels involved, the mentions and tutorials around other techniques and some of the bragged about success rates with social engineering, recovery, resets, rats and phishing – it appears that such techniques were not necessary or never discovered. [...] Timestamps, forum posts and other data suggests that the collection was built up over a long period of time. [...] In terms of staying secure the most obvious solutions are to pick a better password, set your security answers to long random strings and enable two-factor authentication.

Tone deaf Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles warns the world about the dangers of hackers | PandoDaily
"Recent events show that with appropriate motivation anything can be hacked.Maybe everyone should stop and think about what it means for them" - Karpeles tweet would appear to be a reference to the recent celebrity hacking scandal which has seen nude photos of several female stars published online, with extortion request sent to prevent the release of others. (Ironically, many of these demands were for payment in bitcoin.) Even if it weren’t for Karpeles’ track record with alleged hacking attacks, the tweet would nevertheless have been ill-advised. As many other public figures have learned, any hint at victim-blaming in this instance is sure to draw criticism. Combine this with the fact that Karpeles’ nearly bankrupted thousands of people, and this comment warrants a special kind of outrage.

How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x. Time Warner, which mints money, is at 2x. + Are There Internet Dialects? http://youtu.be/SDPasRas5u0 Transporting Internet language, dialects, memes etc and ideas how to present stuff in an enlightening manner to mainstream.
