UK culture sec hints at replacing TV licence fee, defends encryption ban proposals and her boss in Hacker House inquiry


Re: BBC != Netflix

Where on the BBC can find regional news, quality new music radio, oh and a national cultural history dating back a century? That's right : nowhere.

BBC Look North is fixed on Arts stories, magazine content and never touches the news, unless there is an option to promote leftist views ( and double so if they can mention Jo Cox )

GNOMEs beat Microsoft: Git Virtual File System to get a new name


+1 for GFYS

Having just wasted a few early morning hours with Microsoft at InfoSec Europe where it was the only presentation that didnt focus on the problem, but telling you that Microsoft Cloud was the solution.

LinkedIn plays down '117 million users' breach data sale


Whereas the recommendation to enable 2 factor ( or rather 2 step) authentication may prevent the malicious use of linked in, the 'value' of the haul ( be it 6.5 or 117 million ) would be those accounts where people use the same username (email) and password across multiple sites.

Whilst working out how many people haven't changed username or password in the last 4 years, also try to work out how come LinkedIn is still running after all these years :D

It killed Safe Harbor. Will Europe's highest court now kill off hyperlinks?


So if a random someone walks up to me in the street and asks me for directions to their hotel - but upon arrival they find that it is closed, am I now responsible for providing them accommodation and a bacon sandwich in the morning ?
