Facebook Master Password Was "Chuck Norris" 319

Posted by samzenpus
from the ad-nauseum-roundhouse dept.
I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes "A Facebook employee has given a tell-all interview with some very interesting things about Facebook's internals. Especially interesting are all the things relating to Facebook privacy. Basically, you don't have any. Nearly everything you've ever done on the site is recorded into a database. While they fire employees for snooping, more than a few have done it. There's an internal system to let them log into anyone's profile, though they have to be able to defend their reason for doing so. And they used to have a master password that could log into any Facebook profile: 'Chuck Norris.' Bruce Schneier might be jealous of that one."

+ - Clojure 1.0 Released->

Submitted by
Hornsby
Hornsby writes "Yesterday marked the official release of Clojure 1.0. After several years of heavy development, the 1.0 branch will enable people to consume a stable version of Clojure and move to bugfix-only incremental versions while preserving API stability. Clojure was produced over the course of a self-funded sabbatical by it's author, Rich Hickey, and aims to provide a modern Lisp running on the JVM with excellent support for concurrency and Java interoperability."
