  • Personally, I use Windows 8.1 (for some games) and Xubuntu on my desktop and Manjaro Linux on my laptop. I prefer to stick with open source operating systems as, especially linux in particular, are designed with security in mind. Of course, there remains the issue of binary blobs, but that is the price of hardware compatibility. Regardless, what operating system do you use? It is okay, if you aren’t a Linux enthusiast or if you need/prefer Windows or Mac.

  • It looks like as of this morning that there is no longer a way to add news articles. The submit button takes you to the entertainment “Create” page. There does not seem to be any other option than images, film, or music, which clearly does not cover most news stories. Am I missing something?

  • I’m familiar with Bitcoin and some digital currency, but where else can I get further reading on the topic? And to add, how much money should be invested into Bitcoin/how do you do it/where do you do it?

  • First of all, I am unsure whether there is a more suitable category to file this under, if there is, I apologize in advance. I would like to know what are your thoughts on the News Feed Experiment Facebook conducted. In short, they removed posts with expressions tied to specific emotions. In one group, “happy” and “positive” posts were removed, as in the other, the “sad” posts did not show. This was done in order to watch the effects that the contents of the news feed had in your own status updates, or at least, that’s how I understood it. There has been vast outcry from the some media sources, as well as from the general public, questioning the ethics, and even suggesting an Orwellian side to the experiment. I’m not sure what to make of all of this. on one hand, it seems this type of situations is included in the Terms and Conditions. However, messing with a person’s state of mind through selective exposition, while interesting, is at least, of questionable ethics. Comments on this?

  • http://www.wired.com/2014/05/dfwtbj/ “For Ver, the digital currency is not just a way of storing and moving money without help from the authorities. It’s also a way of seeking justice, something that’s laid out in the Skype chat logs that Ver provided of his conversation with the hacker. Sure, you can wield this type of bounty using other currencies–and many have–but there’s something particularly appropriate about doing it with bitcoin.” “About a decade ago, Ver’s computer parts-reselling business had about $1 million in goods stolen during a break-in. Tracking parts serial numbers, he located his stolen merchandise in L.A. about a month later. “I called multiple police agencies to let them know I found my stolen parts,” he says. “None of them would lift a finger to help me. I never got any of it back.” But his bounty has been more effective. Within minutes of posting the bounty, Nitrous handed over the new password to Ver’s Hotmail account. And Ver says he hasn’t caused any trouble since.” Crypto currencies and technology has allowed people to protect themselves more efficiently then calling the police.
