A CNN article about the Al-Jazeera report on Al Qaeda codenames:

] name: The U.S. Capitol was called "The Faculty of Law;"

Al Qaeda Encryption Reference
Topic: War on Terrorism 5:54 pm EST, Dec 20, 2002

] "Tape C189 shot in a clean office, believed by coalition
] intelligence sources, who looked at this tape, to have
] been al Qaeda's secure Afghan communications room. The
] man using the two-way radio tells the person at the other
] end to look for a message on his computer and decode it."

This snippet from an August 2002 CNN report is one of the *very* few references I've ever found about Al Qaeda using any type of computerized cryptography. I would dearly love to find out what type of encryption was being referred to in this tape. PGP? ROT-13 (or an Arabic equivalent?). Anyone got a source they can tap to get more details?

New Scientist - Digital Image stored in single molecule
Topic: Technology 6:00 pm EST, Dec 18, 2002

From Logickal:

"Bing Fung and colleagues at the University of Oklahoma found that the 19 hydrogen atoms in a lone liquid crystal molecule can store at least 1024 bits of information. The data are stored in the complex interaction of the protons' magnetic moments."

Elonka: Fascinating stuff. And a whole new way to hide information steganographically!

Urban Legends Debunking
Topic: Society 5:47 pm EST, Dec 18, 2002

A good "debunking" site that posts the garbage chain letters going around the internet, and then picks them apart to find the truth. This is the first place I check when I'm looking for facts to explain to my less-technically-savvy relatives why they *shouldn't* be forwarding whatever chain letters they're receiving.
