I'm a little surprised at the reaction to this - I would have guessed that DCer's would generally be in favor of tough anti-spam laws.

This isn't a tough anti-spam law- it's a short-sighted one, with little understanding of the tech behind it, and a very stifling effect by the unreasonable penalties.

Aa any rate, the security bulletins have been switched to a RSS feed. Which is fine by me since I prefer to use RSS anyway.

Here's the link: http://technet.microsoft....-us/security/rss/bulletin

Add it to your reader.

They didn't switch.  That was already an option.  RSS is a pull, not a push type service... so there's a difference.  There's of course ways around that difference... but there aren't any added functions in their offering RSS.

Acceptance of Facebook's user agreement, at the time of signup, would not be considered "informed consent".


Exactly what I pointed out elsewhere.  Thanks for the links, app!

Community choice- it's on sale for the next 7 hours, so I'll be buying no matter what at 8 PM EST.

Reminds me of Contra with a side of Metal Slug.

4 pack is $30, so that's 7.50 each.  DC credits accepted, post interest to this thread, but don't send anything until we get 4 or I say go ahead.

Facebook data scientist Adam Kramer is listed as the study’s lead author. In an interview the company released a few years ago, Kramer is quoted as saying he joined Facebook because "Facebook data constitutes the largest field study in the history of the world."

It’s a charming reminder that Facebook isn’t just the place you go to see pictures of your friends’ kids or your racist uncle’s latest rant against the government—it’s also an exciting research lab, with all of us as potential test subject.

Just from reading the clip in the link I have the suspicion that this is yet another example of "event A occurred before Event B, therefor A is the cause of B."  Do the implementers of the study have an way to know how the lab rats get all their news?  Like if lab rat "Killer Joe" also reads NYT hard copy or subscribes to KKK Weekly?

Since news is generally negative it might be more demonstrative if they fed the lab rats a diet of jolly good news and they all started posting through rose colored glasses.  smiley

Well, the study is pretty stupid when you look at it.  "Do words affect your mental state?" is what the question can be boiled down to.  Well... duh?

Facebook tinkered with users’ feeds for a massive psychology experiment

Yeah.  I'm done.  Especially since they didn't consider the ramifications of someone being in a negative emotional state and possibly... you know... doing negative things other than posting?

Don't really care how much family is on it now.

Again, short-sighted legislation without an understanding of technology.  And the fact that this will cross country boundaries... wow.

• You, as an individual, may be fined $10,000

And... more wow.  I see what they were going for but... wow.

It's apparently due to a new Canadian anti-spam law.

... and items can be added for any reason or no reason.  As long as there is perceived 'offense'.  And they are removed for...  I'm at a loss.

Yup.

But it's predictable. Anything to start a conflict where there was none before, or to open old wounds, or to throw gasoline on a real conflict.

Invent a victim. Dig up a victim. Find a victim.

Order doesn't matter - just whatever works at the time.

Otherwise, what the hell good is it if it can't make headlines?



*sigh*

"See!  Exactly what I said in the article... happened.  Grow up people!  Realize what's going on!"



But more strangeness...

Does anyone not see... he needs help?  Or do they need a male Lindsey Lohan?

The craziest details and jokes from Shia LaBeouf's Broadway arrest (via USA Today)

He had to be ... muzzled.  And we make fun of this?



And something to lighten the mood...

... and it was reported by a tweet from someone else, not from any PR spectacle.

Not nearly as convoluted a rule set than what American Football subjects you to.

Convoluted?  American Football?  Hmmm...  ohmy

I don't get it. Is it Libba Brary? Or is the Butcher Skin Game the joke?

Look at the titles of the books stacked up behind it...

Bye bye Aereo. The shitlords have won again.

What's amazing is that Scalia of all people was in the dissenting opinion.

But, I'm just dreaming... It would be entertaining to see though!

It's a comedy, however.  And it looks like a bad comedy.  Like I said, it's just better to ignore it.

As far as movies about assassinating the POTUS...
