Well, the hidden cost of downloading his show or offering it for download on the internet and the related lifestyle seems to be something he is also failing to consider. And you would think he would consider it since, as you say, it is a central theme of his "art."
So.. you attempted to use google to get collaborative information about an article that claimed that google was giving out information too freely, and you failed to find the information you were looking for. Irony?
Convicted felons like Kim Dotcom generate millions of dollars in illegal revenue off our stolen creative work.
This is hilarious, coming from a guy who writes a TV show about a gang of convicted felons who make millions of dollars in illegal revenue selling guns. You would think he of all people might be a little sympathetic to the idea of people stepping outside the law to provide a service when there is enough demand to do so.
But all of slashdot should know that a KiloByte is 1024 bytes
and a MegiByte is 1024 Kilobytes
WRONG! A MegiByte is when a wizard bites you.
That workflow requires quite a lot of manual maintenance, which also has a cost.
You fail to consider the cost of electricity, or the cost of redundancy in case the hard drive crashes.
Not generalizable. You have not proven that normal sex is equivalent to sex with whores.
Grubbing dirt out of the ground and burning it is a "dark ages" thing.
That sounds more like Star Trek to me.. or maybe Back to the Future. Getting energy directly out of raw dirt is defiantly sci-fi.
Or we could all just grow up a little bit. If our kids aren't mature enough to handle anonymous threats then they need to learn how to.
I know that if anyone were to threaten me as an AC I wouldn't go so far as to get their IP tracked. If I did anything it would probably be to laugh in their face (metaphorically speaking).
I think facebook has not fallen so fast because it's funded by advertisers. Those advertisers still don't have any viable alternatives. It will take them jumping ship before the bubble will pop.
So someone anonymously said something. It's not like that's never been done before. It's not like that's a new issue in society. Haven't we come up with better ways to deal with this by now?
For instance, I can post anonymously right now on this very platform. How is that wrong?
If schools didn't act so stupidly they wouldn't have to be funded by corporations.
This just in: The economy of the US now has mass, and lots of it!
Yeah, you can hike up into the hills and get great views of the clouds of smog. I wasn't too impressed with the weather, the heat is oppressive when everything around you is glass or concrete.
Hawaii isn't overcrowded. If you leave your towel wet for even an hour it will get mold on in though.
The main disadvantage of hawaii is that lots of things cost 25% more, due to increased shipping costs.
"Healthcare is really in a disadvantaged place in cyber-security," said Patrick Peterson, CEO of security firm Agari, which worked on the Citadel botnet takedown with Microsoft's Digital Crimes Unit.According to the group's remarks, hospitals and healthcare organization’s are simply not making cyber security a priority.
"We studied from a statistical point of view which industries are doing the most to deal with malware," Peterson said. "Banks and social media sites are at the top while healthcare scores a near incomplete."
Agari has been spending its time monitoring criminal marketplaces online, and Peterson said that the price for a valid stolen credit card was only a couple of dollars on the black market.
Compare that to a patient's medical records, which will set a budding cyber-criminal back around £40 a person, and you get a sense of why healthcare organizations are going to be the next big target for the dark underbelly of the Internet.
The report comes as the UK government tries to push through the creation of the controversial £50 million Care. Data database, which has raised a number of serious security concerns, not least from the NHS itself.
"Medical records, if you know how to game people, allows a multitude of fraud options," said Richard Boscovich, assistant general counsel for the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit.
"With that you can impersonate someone to get into their bank account, you can get everything down to the color of their hair and eyes, and if you know how to socially engineer a bank or a store or a credit card then the sky's the limit. These guys are good, we've seen that happen."
While it's understandable that a busy hospital is going to have a number of critical concerns that rank in higher priority than cyber security, if the problem isn't addressed, a real crisis could be looming in the future."
