Submission + - Microsoft takes down NOIP claiming cybercrime

GoodNewsJimDotCom writes: Hello,

I just released a game yesterday that used NOIP and today people can't use the cloud saves because Microsoft took down NOIP.

Cybercrime on Microsoft windows wouldn't be a problem if Microsoft just designed their Operating System to be virus resistant.

From what I can tell, Microsoft acted without a court order.

Submission + - Slashdot reader just finished a video game: Throne and Crown->

I spent 4 years on the engine, and 1 year on this game. Explore around a bunch. A weakness of the game is that people aren't finding the early zones easily. I overestimated how much people would be jazzed up about general exploration. The game just got published today. I hope you enjoy it. ,Jim

Submission + - Hyperdemocracy anyone? 9 9

GoodNewsJimDotCom writes: Hyperdemocracy is a system where all the citizens of the country vote for the decisions of the country instead of having elected officials. Can someone make a site with encryption and security that could confirm users as unique citizens? Or is this impossible to do? I think if you made a site like this, you could make it go live, and use it to track to make sure Congress is doing what the people want. Finally in an unstable world as we have today, this hyperdemocracy might even be adopted by new regimes.
