Cyber warfare against Dyn is now being investigated by Homeland Security (as well it should be). Twitter, SoundCloud, Spotify, Shopify, and other websites have been inaccessible to many users throughout the day. 

“We are actively in the third flank of this attack,” Dyn’s chief strategy officer Kyle Owen told reporters around 4:30 p.m. ET today. “It’s a very smart attack. As we mitigate, they react.” - Dyn chief strategy officer Kyle Owen...
Yesterday, Breitbart editor, Milo Yiannopoulos was permanently banned from Twitter.  The reason, ostensibly, was that he was targeting Leslie Jones, the actress in the recently released Ghostbusters reboot. It would probably be more accurate to say that it was “the last straw” from Twitter’s point of view given Milo’s engagement with Jones was relatively mild and no reasonable person would argue that Milo is responsible for the abuse his followers do. Twitter’s tolerance tends to be based o...

Guys, they say you can't uninstall IE, but this video proves them all wrong!!!

 

 
New AI breakthrough: One of the hardest jobs for AI has been natural language parsing. There are many examples of ambiguity that would stump most human recipients - and yet are perfectly valid, grammatically correct, etc. We humans resolve these situations by putting them in a context and/or by seeking further clarification. This task - translating a stream of symbols such as words into a meaningful mental object in our consciousness - has been partially solved to date by heroic statis...
10/09/16 More of the same.  Tedious correction of product data with endless errors.  Still no manual for the CMS stuff.  I know how to do three or four basic operations - and my instructor on those operations got a good deal wrong.  As I expected, the old website disappeared and/or was blocked from my access.  This directly contradicted my own instructions as well as the job requirements, so I was finally given a new address to access what amounts to the verified so...
It never ceases to amaze me that someone online will direct something vile my way and expect me to just turn the other cheek simply because I’m “powerful” (whatever that means).

What they don’t understand is me shining a spotlight on them is about as kiddie gloves as I can get. 

And frankly, they’re lucky to get the kiddie gloves.  I know ignoring them doesn’t work.  Being polite doesn’t work.  Social Justice Warriors aren’t interested in truth or fairness.  T...
Remember "Firefly."

That should be in the back of every programmer's personal perspective, like "Remember the Alamo," "Never again!," or the "Fermi Paradox," cosmic tweets conveying the essence of a haunting question or a meta-wrong still not set right, or, ... if you will, a battle cry!  Look up "Firefly."  Here's a reasonable source:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefly_(website)

No doubt the reader has run into the Firefly algorithm on Amazon and elsewhere,...
Have you been getting a bit frustrated in recent weeks about having your well crafted or well-intentioned point mischaracterized as something vile and disgusting? Maybe they just misunderstood right? Nope. You have just run into someone who intentionally chooses to misrepresent your position in order to cheaply gain the moral high ground.

Nearly every bit of PR trouble I’ve gotten into over the years has been the result of someone mischaracterizing something I’ve said or posted in...
The game industry as been ablaze for, really, the last couple of years about misogyny within its ranks. This really came to a head in the past couple weeks when an outspoken “indie” game developer was accused of some sordid activities in exchange for media coverage.  

Online culture has a serious toxicity problem. It gets worse every year. Here are 3 things that are driving it:

#1 The tabloidiziation of the gaming media. 

First, I want to emphasize that the gaming...
OK, think back to 1991 or perhaps '92.  The web hadn't been invented yet - or implemented anyway.  Ted Nelson's Xanadu was known throughout the digerati, and no doubt countless other thinkers had come up with their own mental or prototypical WWW, yours truly included, circu 1979 or so.  I even spent most of a year writing a version of Prolog to run on a C64 as the foundation OS for a universal information network that I called the "Personal Knowledge Index" o...

Well I must admit I'm a bit surprised.  I use 2 Browsers.  My main browser is IE 10 in protected mode.  I also have Firefox only because I cannot comment in the WC Galleries without it.  IE 10 just wont work there!!  I have also removed all Java from my system.

 

I seldom use FireFox at all.  For security I have MSE and Malwarebytes Pro.  I hadn't turned on protection mode in awhile for Malwarebyte Pro until today.

 

It found a hij...

I'm just really curious about a tech issue. How in 2013 can a website with an unlimited budget and years of planning fail? It has to be by design imo. There isn't any way such incompetence is achievable, it has to be intentional. It must be because the exchanges are so incomplete and expensive that the website was designed broken as a method of delay.

“People who say mean things should die in a fire!”
I so do love the Internet. I really do. 

Only on the Internet can “some guy” tell you how you should be doing a job that you have obviously succeeded at far beyond their wildest dreams.
