+ - The Meme Hustler: A look at Tim O'Reilly as PR genius and crazy talker->

Submitted by mat catastrophe
mat catastrophe (105256) writes "Evgeny Morozov has written an extensive piece profiling Tim O'Reilly for The Baffler magazine. In it, Morozov details how O'Reilly shifted the focus of geeks from "free software" to "open source" and continues to this day perpetuating a kind of "crazy talk" about technology."

+ - Bethesda Forums Compromised->

mat catastrophe writes "Just got my own copy of this email warning of a breach in the Bethesda Forums.

Dear Bethesda Forum User, We have identified a potential breach of our forum user database that occurred Friday morning, Aug 12. We have reset your forum password as a precaution, in the event that any encrypted forum user passwords were compromised.

No one's claiming responsibility but could it be a response to the recent cease and desist sent to Minecraft?"
