Not a good morning for cybersecurity... KRACK attack affects WPA2, the protocol that runs basically every encrypted WiFi network. https://www.krackattacks.com/
The ROCA attack identifies a massive number of RSA 1024 and 2048 bit keys (including, I'm told, potentially all of those created by a YubiKey 4) are factorable. https://crocs.fi.muni.cz/public/papers/rsa_ccs17
i have thoughts
i don't share them
cause listening is hard
talking is easy
- Describe well its format and contents, using open standards and structured vocabularies (ontologies) as much as possible.
- Be very careful about #privacy. As a rule of thumb, data that allows others to pinpoint an individual is personnal data. Think that in the future, there will be more computing power to de-anonymize the data.
- Engage with others to manage updates collectivly.
So if I use WiFi now, people who *aren't* Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook will know all my financial details and every secret moment of my life
So I'm running a website that includes Google web fonts. How do I get rid of Google without giving up on beautiful fonts (not necessarily the same ones)? I really have no clue how browsers do fonts...
If you know any trans, intersex, genderqueer, or otherwise full-of-genders folks who have been affected by the California wine country fires, please direct them to the Trans Disaster Relief Fund - found here: http://tdrfund.us
I shall continue to hope that I won't need to turn to them myself.
"The Internet Archive is now leveraging a little known, and perhaps never used, provision of US copyright law, Section 108h, which allows libraries to scan and make available materials published 1923 to 1941 if they are not being actively sold."
"If the Founding Fathers had their way, almost all works from the 20th century would be public domain by now (14-year copyright term, renewable once if you took extra actions)."
Oh, hey, here's some good news - there's a new law in CA that:
1. employers cannot ask prospective employees their prior salary information
2. employers must, upon asking, provide a salary range for the job in question
This is very good for employees, as they now have better information to work with.
@zacts I think you'd like the thinking behind this book: https://www.amazon.com/Lateral-Thinking-Creativity-Step/dp/0060903252
Inb4 an idiot onrush: this is not to suggest that the rightness or wrongness of afflicting someone else rests upon the consideration of whether one may derive greater benefits by way of afflicting them. It is to suggest that even with a lame code of morals such as that, the afflicting of one's spouse fails the test.
While in class I got really anxious, so I left class. I thought that leaving would help, but I felt terrible outside too. Now I'm just waiting for class to end (30 minutes left) so that I can fetch my stuff.
