What do you do if you find a vulnerability in an aircraft? Unless you work for Boeing, if you don't want to go to jail, my advice would be to STFU. This is a case of no good deed will go unpunished.
There was no crash, so no.
Yup, shut up. Nothing good can come from talking. I'm amazed to see how many prosecutions happen where if the person had just shut up they would have had no evidence.
I believe the data recorders are overwritten every flight. So unless they grabbed the black box at the time, too late.
That would be true for the smaller sites, but not for Google, facebook etc.
Then the ad companies just stop using DNS. That would work for about 2 seconds.
In the absence of net neutrality rules, it's an open question whether you could call it extortion.
So Google blocks you until you "opt in", and then the block has achieved nothing? I think users will opt in pretty quick if they can't access facebook.
This is a case of non-democracy - an executive decision by the PM. If a democracy was less executive, at the very least calling for a vote of parliament, or better yet, citizens' vote, we wouldn't have this problem. Even a citizens initiated bill like you have in California would have some hope of overturning something like this.
If... oh say Iran, declared the chief justice of Scotland to be a fugitive, would it make it so? I would say no, because the chief justice is not in Iranian jurisdiction, and not in a jurisdiction subject to Iranian extradition. The same goes for Assange. If there's a difference, I'd love to know what it is.
Yes, why the heck spend millions on computers and security when the problem is more easily solved with ping pong balls? Inquiring minds would like to know.
Would suck to be your grandmother.
What he suggests has a lot of merit. On the other hand, there are so many companies languishing under inappropriate technology whose problems would be solved if they weren't so boring. Applications that would be transformed if they only used an object database for example. Business logic that would actually be maintainable if they used a functional programming language. Unmaintainable COBOL that would benefit from an object approach. Yes, there are a lot of times you'll ship something faster by being boring. But whether you'll get the best quality? Not so sure.
COBOL, Fortran etc work, but not well for large projects. You can't work around it when you have a million lines of unmaintainable code.
How about yes, but only viewable if there is a crash landing and fatality.
