+ - UK reintroduces computer science in schools->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Michael Gove, education secretary for the UK government, is today going to announce ICT is being scrapped in schools and in its place a computer science curriculum will be taught. So learning about applications is out, learning how to make those applications is in.

Such news should be met with celebration across the technology industry, and especially by tech companies operating in the UK. Future generations of kids leaving school will do so having a much greater understanding of computer hardware, how software is made, and some basic-to-advanced programming skills."

Julian Assange's Online Dating Profile Leaked 334

Posted by samzenpus
from the leaker-love dept.
Ponca City writes "The Telegraph reports that an online dating profile created by Julian Assange in 2006 has been unearthed from OKCupid disclosing that the WikiLeaks editor sought 'spirited, erotic' women 'from countries that have sustained political turmoil.' Writing under the pseudonym of British science fiction author Harry Harrison, Assange described himself as a 'passionate, and often pig headed activist intellectual.' Assange said he was seeking a 'siren for [a] love affair, children and occasional criminal conspiracy' adding that he was 'directing a consuming, dangerous human rights project which is, as you might expect, male dominated' and added enigmatically: 'I am DANGER, ACHTUNG.' Among Assange's listed interests were the 'structure of reality' and 'chopping up human brains' – although he added the caveat '(neuroscience background)' lest the latter put off potential admirers. 'I like women from countries that have sustained political turmoil,' Assange wrote. 'Western culture seems to forge women that are valueless and inane. OK. Not only women!'"
