Why would the NSA even f- around with stealing passwords when they can just get a rubber stamped warrant?
Warrants aren't scalable. With backdoors they can monitor all the things all the time and nobody knows. - Todd Hoff
Picking off passwords one-by-one also seems non-scalable. At least with a warrant, you can force someone to install a server on their premises that grabs all the data without f-ing around with encryption at all. - Victor Ganata
don't need no warrant, but the little girls understand. - Big Joe Silence
The picking is completely automated. We've paid for many datacenters worth of machines that make this trivial for them. - Todd Hoff
I guess it's possible. But in my imagination, using PRISM instead of trying to exploit Heartbleed just seems like it would be more efficient. - Victor Ganata

I think I might have a radical skeptical tendency mainly because my dad is a lot like Calvin's dad from "Calvin and Hobbes", deliberately making up shit to troll me and my siblings. So basically, everything is bullshit until proven otherwise.

Hive minds: Time to drop the fiction of individuality - opinion - 08 April 2014 - New Scientist
"To develop this new science, my students and I have been studying living laboratories. By distributing smartphones with special software to all the residents of several small communities, we could track their social interactions with their peers – both friends and acquaintances – and at the same time ask questions about their health, politics and spending behaviour. For instance, when we looked at weight gain, we found that people picked up new habits from exposure to the habits of peers, and not just through interactions with friends. This means that when everyone else in the office takes a doughnut, you probably will too. In fact, this type of exposure turned out to be more important than all the other factors combined, highlighting the overarching importance of automatic social learning in shaping our lives. We found that this same pattern held true for voting and consumer consumption. The largest single factor driving adoption of new behaviours was the behaviour of peers. Put... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
"In light of this, perhaps we should ask how important individual choices are compared with shared habits. Here again the power of sharing ideas, as opposed to individual thinking, is clear. When we study decision-making in small groups, we find that the pattern of communication – who talked to whom and how much they talked – is far more important than the characteristics of the... more... - Todd Hoff
Hegel would love this - "Instead of individual rationality, our society appears to be governed by a collective intelligence that comes from the surrounding flow of ideas and examples; we learn from others in our environment, and they learn from us. A community with members who actively engage with each other creates a group with shared, integrated habits and beliefs. What social physics... more... - Todd Hoff
"Our culture and the habits of our society are social contracts, and both depend primarily upon social learning. As a result, most of our public beliefs and habits are learned by observing the attitudes, actions and outcomes of peers, rather than by logic or argument. Learning and reinforcing this social contract is what enables a group of people to coordinate their actions effectively." - Todd Hoff
"It is time that we dropped the fiction of individuals as the unit of rationality, and recognised that our rationality is largely determined by the surrounding social fabric. Instead of being actors in markets, we are collaborators in determining the public good. Indeed, our research has demonstrated that people are much more influenced by their social networks than by individual... more... - Todd Hoff
"This power of the social fabric on individual decision-making is, in fact, the real reason that privacy is so important. As Stanley Milgram's work on social conformity demonstrated many years ago, the power of social influence can lead people to both good and terrible behaviours, and can transform our behaviour to an extent that is scarcely believable. Without privacy, the power of... more... - Todd Hoff
Good book so far. There's a similarity between pruning trees to sculpt light to get the best fruit and shaping social networks to make the best decisions. It's disturbing though to think of what passes for decision making is just copying others. - Todd Hoff

Amoeba Eats Cells Alive | The Scientist Magazine® - http://www.the-scientist.com/...
Amoeba Eats Cells Alive | The Scientist Magazine®
"For decades, scientists assumed that the intestinal parasite Entamoeba histolytica killed human tissues with toxic molecules before ingesting them. They were wrong; it’s actually the other way around, according to a study published in Nature today (April 9). Katherine Ralston, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Virginia, has shown that E. histolytica—a single-celled amoeba—tears chunks from host cells and eats them. These attacks eventually kill the cell, at which point the parasite moves on. E. histolytica is the only parasite known to attack tissues in this way—a process known as trogocytosis, after “trogo,” the Greek word for “nibble.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

"'Recent advances in xed-wing perching have made it possible to consider a new solution to this problem - landing on a powerline to recharge.' The system works using the power line's magnetic field. Four metres away from it, sensors in the plane's nose sense it, and allow the plane to fly itself so it lands perfectly on the wire, exactly like a bird." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Maybe? It also means you've got a predictable window of massive user influx - new sign-ins, activity, press, and then if there are any previously unseen beta-program glitches, a still relatively small group to deal with. - Jennifer Dittrich

Honestly, no idea. I wouldn't have said it would be with iPhones on the first round, and it was.

"Total protein and nitrogen concentrations in plants generally decline under elevated CO2 atmospheres.

Open Source is a process for overcoming the traditional weakness of the commons. Clearly did not work for OpenSsl. The shallow bug conjecture is more of a statistical notion, not something to bet your security on.
I think it depends on your perspective, though. If OpenSSL *wasn't* open source, we probably wouldn't know about this vulnerability until a massive exploit was actually deployed that screwed millions and millions of people the world over. - Victor Ganata
Um, how do you know one hasn't been deployed? - Todd Hoff
"It is surprising that a project that is quite mission critical is completely at the bottom of the scale when it comes to how much the development process is oriented toward reliability. There are no systematic unit tests, no systematic documentation, the best you get is a bunch of disorganized integration tests, so it is not even at the level you would expect for a decently maintained business project" - Todd Hoff
Fair enough, maybe something has already been deployed, but no one has reported losing billions of dollars to OpenSSL exploits yet. - Victor Ganata
OpenSSL 1.0.1 (which I think is the first release that has this vulnerability) was released in March 2012, so I imagine two years is probably enough time for someone to have crafted an exploit that would've wreaked massive havoc by now. - Victor Ganata
And they will never admit to anything like that. Keep in mind these libraries are used in gazillions of routers, firewalls, proxies, and other appliances. Updating those is non-trivial. - Todd Hoff
Certain bugs are more likely to be found if you have a large number of users doing diverse things with your software. Security vulnerabilities have never worked like that. It's not statistics, it's the nature of this bug. - Bruce Lewis
The notion is that with so many eyes on code that bugs will be more quickly found and fixed, it's not just a use argument. - Todd Hoff
Yeah, but if the argument is that closed source software is inherently safer, the millions of pwned zombie Windows machines that are part of malicious botnets seems to contradict that conclusion. Nobody's development process is perfect. - Victor Ganata
I don't recall making that argument. - Todd Hoff
Not saying you did, but closed source is the only alternative to open source. - Victor Ganata
Bugs happen. All you can do it mitigate the risk. It still seems that open source is less risky than closed source, even given all its flaws. - Victor Ganata
Heartbleed does put the Apple SSL goto fail bug in perspective, though :D - Victor Ganata
Bugs don't just happen. People write them. Processes help prevent them. When they aren't prevented you look to your people and to your process. That's what good groups do. Every bug is tracked back to see how it could have been prevented and the process is changed to make sure that happens. What is clear is that relying on the shallow conjecture doesn't work on core critical... more... - Todd Hoff
Sure, the "many eyes" idea vastly overestimates the number of people who will actually bother combing through the source code, and sure, you can implement processes that minimize the risk of people introducing devastating bugs, but it's always a cost vs. benefit argument. And people are gonna f- up. I guess the question is, ultimately, who pays? - Victor Ganata
Todd, you're right that the shallow bug conjecture is not just a use argument. If it were just a use argument it would be more accurate. If I were Linus Torvald's I'd be really annoyed that ESR named his inaccurate conjecture after me - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Bruce Lewis
Interesting: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.... BTW, all these issues are trappable by tests. - Todd Hoff
It does make me wonder how everyone came to rely on something that seems to have been written in such a slipshod fashion. Who's more irresponsible, the OpenSSL developers, or the people who put together the distros that include it? - Victor Ganata

Obesity Linked to Genetics: People With Higher Number Of ‘Carb Breakdown’ Genes Less Likely To Be Overweight - http://www.medicaldaily.com/obesity...
Obesity Linked to Genetics: People With Higher Number Of ‘Carb Breakdown’ Genes Less Likely To Be Overweight
"Unfortunately, overeating carbs often leads to obesity… but not for everyone. Now, a new study conducted at King's College London and Imperial College London suggests a "carb breakdown" gene exists, and it may help to explain all these differences. In fact, people with fewer copies of this gene, which instructs the body to make a carb-digesting enzyme, are less effective in digesting certain foods and so they are at higher risk of obesity. Amlyase is an enzyme that breaks carbohydrates down to sugar, which is converted to energy used by the body. The amylase that resides in the mouth, salivary amlyase, begins the process of carbohydrate digestion, while pancreatic amylase continues that process in the small intestine. Two amylase genes exist, AMY1 and AMY2, coding for salivary and pancreatic amylase, respectively." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

". For instance, in one experiment aimed at promoting more healthy behaviour we compared the strategy of giving participants cash when they improved their behaviour to the strategy of giving cash to the participants' buddies. We found giving buddies the reward was more than four times as effective as giving rewards directly to the participants. Similar social network incentives have yielded even more dramatic results when used to encourage energy savings and voting" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Universal computing by DNA origami robots in a living animal : Nature Nanotechnology : Nature Publishing Group
"Biological systems are collections of discrete molecular objects that move around and collide with each other. Cells carry out elaborate processes by precisely controlling these collisions, but developing artificial machines that can interface with and control such interactions remains a significant challenge. DNA is a natural substrate for computing and has been used to implement a diverse set of mathematical problems1, 2, 3, logic circuits4, 5, 6 and robotics7, 8, 9. The molecule also interfaces naturally with living systems, and different forms of DNA-based biocomputing have already been demonstrated10, 11, 12, 13. Here, we show that DNA origami14, 15, 16 can be used to fabricate nanoscale robots that are capable of dynamically interacting with each other17, 18 in a living animal. The interactions generate logical outputs, which are relayed to switch molecular payloads on or off. As a proof of principle, we use the system to create architectures that emulate various logic gates... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

I'm having pain in my left mid back that would fit the anatomical location for a kidney stone, but I don't think it's as painful as I've heard a kidney stone is supposed to be.

The problem is that my sense of pain is all screwed up. If it's not totally incapacitating, it can't be that serious, right? :D - Victor Ganata

"“It looks like a beeper,” the woman told Rosenthal. “It’s made of plastic and runs on triple-A batteries, but it’s the most expensive thing I own, aside from my house.” A new model, Rosenthal reported, can cost tens of thousands of dollars. And the pump and related supplies will cost the woman $5,000 this year, even with good health insurance. That includes insulin that once "cost a few dollars" and "now often sells for more than $200 a vial, meaning some patients must pay more than $4,000 a year," Rosenthal wrote. Part of the reason is that each pump comes with related items that are specific to a particular model. Purchasing a new pump means throwing out other supplies and gadgets and buying a whole new array of equipment." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

If Jesus Never Called Himself God, How Did He Become One? : NPR - http://www.npr.org/2014...
If Jesus Never Called Himself God, How Did He Become One? : NPR
"You do find Jesus calling himself God in the Gospel of John, or the last Gospel. Jesus says things like, "Before Abraham was, I am." And, "I and the Father are one," and, "If you've seen me, you've seen the Father." These are all statements you find only in the Gospel of John, and that's striking because we have earlier gospels and we have the writings of Paul, and in none of them is there any indication that Jesus said such things. ... I think it's completely implausible that Matthew, Mark and Luke would not mention that Jesus called himself God if that's what he was declaring about himself. That would be a rather important point to make. This is not an unusual view amongst scholars; it's simply the view that the Gospel of John is providing a theological understanding of Jesus that is not what was historically accurate." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
