    Memeburn - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 1:00 AM EDT

    A few years back the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (or Icann — the non-profit body that oversees domains) announced it would be creating more gTLDs and called for suggestions. Icann received over 1 900 applications. More importantly, in a move that sees Icann nodding at the inherent internationalism of the Internet, non-Western scripts will now be supported.

  • Insight: At Mt. Gox bitcoin hub, 'geek' CEO sought both control and escape

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:55 AM EDT

    (This story changes Mandalah description in the 30th paragraph, company name in the 31st paragraph) By Sophie Knight TOKYO (Reuters) - In June 2011, when customers of now-bankrupt bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox agitated for proof that the Tokyo-based firm was still solvent after a hacking attack, CEO Mark Karpeles turned to the comedy science fiction novel "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy". During an online chat, Karpeles moved the equivalent of $170 million in bitcoin at today's market rates - the virtual equivalent of a bank manager flashing a wad of cash in a wallet to establish credit. The gesture - with a sly wink to the "geek" culture Karpeles believed he shared with many of his 50,000 customers at the time, including an interest in coding, Japanese manga comics and science fiction - succeeded. By moving 424,242 bitcoins, Karpeles, then 26, evoked the random number, 42, described as the "meaning of life" in Douglas Adams' sci-fi novel. More »Insight: At Mt.

  • Espionage hacking grows, with more from east Europe: Verizon study

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:32 AM EDT

    By Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Hacking for espionage purposes is sharply increasing, with groups or national governments from Eastern Europe playing a growing role, according to one of the most comprehensive annual studies of computer intrusions. Spying intrusions traced back to any country in 2013 were blamed on residents of China and other East Asian nations 49 percent of the time, but Eastern European countries, especially Russian-speaking nations, were the suspected launching site for 21 percent of breaches, Verizon Communications Inc's said in its annual Data Breach Investigations Report. Though the overall number of spying incidents studied tripled to 511 from total in the 2013 Verizon report, most of that increase is due to the addition of new data sources. Even looking at just the same contributors as before, however, espionage cases grew, said Verizon investigator Bryan Sartin. More »Espionage hacking grows, with more from east Europe: Verizon study

  • 6 ways to effectively voice your opinion on social media

    Memeburn - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:30 AM EDT

    Not so long ago it used to be the norm that if you wanted to voice your opinion about a specific brand, product or service, you had to phone their customer service department if they had any or send a letter to the company headquarters. Before Google was the entry point to anyone looking for information on a specific company, it really wasn’t easy to figure out how to get hold of the right person. With the birth of social media marketing and popular channels like Twitter and Facebook, it’s easy to voice your opinion about anyone and anything in 140 characters or less. There are many social media monitoring and ORM (online reputation management) tools available that can track any mentions and basically anything being talked about online.

  • Lessons in the Streissand effect: SABC bans EFF ad as DA’s ‘Ayisafani’ gets half a million YouTube views

    Memeburn - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:28 AM EDT

    The SABC has refused to air a TV advert from the Economic Freedom Fighter’s (EFF) one of South Africa’s youngest political parties. The ban, confirmed today by party leader and former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, comes just days after the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) “Ayisafani” ad received the same blanket treatment. Both bans come just weeks before South Africa’s national elections, scheduled for 7 May. The advert touches a few contentious political nerves, featuring photographs of the bloody Marikana massacre, where 34 miners were killed by police, and the recent Bekkersdal unrest in Gauteng. But perhaps the most provocative issue of all, and the debated reason for the SABC pulling the plug, is the EFF’s threat to “destroy e-tolls physically.” In response to the ban, the EFF tweeted a YouTube link to the advert along with a few choice words: SABC has banned the EFF Elections Advert because of eTolls.
