SecurityFocus HOME News: Mitnick busts bomb hoaxer

] And does the ex-hacker have any mixed feelings about
] helping bust River Rouge's trouble-making teen? "He
] wasn't really hacking," says Mitnick. "He was really just
] being a jerk"

Certainly, a kid calling in bomb threats from his cell phone does not a hacker make.

REiD MiHALKO's Cuddle Parties
Topic: Miscellaneous 9:57 am EDT, Apr 30, 2004

] What's a Cuddle Party? you ask. It's the next step in sex
] and romance coach Reid Mihalko's exploration of creating
] safe space for women and men to further empower their
] sense of self-expression, sexuality, relationship, and
] play. In this space, we create the opportunity to talk
] about and explore what our needs are as adults when it
] comes to affectionate play and welcomed touch. In other
] words, CUDDLING!

I think (Scanner, 04/27/04) was right to link to this under the heading "Another Sign of the Apocalypse"

Wired News: Hack Your Way to Hollywood
Topic: Miscellaneous 4:05 pm EDT, Apr 29, 2004

] An America Online customer service rep illicitly surfs
] the company's customer database, ferrets out private data
] on celebrity members and then hunts them down online
] under a false identity, seeking fame and fortune in
] Hollywood.
] Sound like a prelude to prison? Not in the case of
] Heather Robinson. The former AOL employee managed to
] parlay privacy violations into useful contacts in
] Hollywood. With the help of those contacts, Robinson, 25,
] landed a movie deal, and she's using her toehold in the
] industry to advance another.

...and the Computer Club is showing Hackers tonight. If only the story behinds its creation was as questionable.

Google IPO, Google Foundation (Google Weblog)
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:46 pm EDT, Apr 29, 2004

] But the standard structure of public ownership may
] jeopardize the independence [of Google]. Therefore, we
] have designed a corporate structure that will protect
] Google%u2019s ability to innovate and retain its most
] distinctive characteristics.

One of the better bits of coverage on the IPO. I guess this may be one of those opportunities where I agree with a dual-class control structure -- to fend off hostiles and the short-term junkies -- although I still would hope they will put a sunset clause on it. And if they can maintain the valuation types they are going for, control isn't going to be much of an issue anyway.

Wired 12.05: Poindexter Confidential
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:36 pm EDT, Apr 29, 2004

] in a lot of ways we have the worst of both worlds: no
] security and no privacy. There are at least 50 federal
] laws and regulations regarding the handling of personal
] information. Programmers call that spaghetti code.

Interesting interview with Poindexter. I honestly do think he was doing some very novel and worthwhile things... not all of them, but some.

Wired 12.05: Poindexter Confidential Life | Making women's issues go away
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:49 pm EDT, Apr 28, 2004

] A damning new report reveals that the Bush administration
] has quietly removed 25 reports from its Women's Bureau
] Web site, deleting or distorting crucial information on
] issues from pay equity to reproductive healthcare.

We started talking about this issue last week on TIA;
particularly because of the onerous robot.txt on the
whitehouse site (and others), there is almost no
automated accountability for inexplicable content
mutation or deletion. This is a particularly bad example. Life | Making women's issues go away

Topic: Miscellaneous 9:39 am EDT, Apr 23, 2004

] BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- People who wear low-slung pants
] that expose skin or "intimate clothing" would face a fine
] of up to $500 and possible jail time under a bill filed
] by a Jefferson Parish lawmaker.
] State Rep. Derrick Shepherd said he filed the bill
] because he was tired of catching glimpses of boxer shorts
] and G-strings over the lowered belt lines of young
] adults.

It is a good thing Fay is getting her trip to Lousiana today, not when this passes. And that Mary got out of there. Because I know that life for them would not be worth living without lowcut pants. Life | Louisiana may ban low-slung pants

] Keep your eye on Pennsylvania's primary next Tuesday, it

And before it just looked sort of pointless. Still isn't terribly important for us on the west coast.
