Picking Up The Slack

quote [ Internet Relay Chat beat Slack to real-time chat by decades and helped define much of our early online culture, yet way more people use Slack. Why is that? ]

You'd rather be on the IRC

"Thar she rots!," or, why you can find whale bones in horse dung in Raleigh, NC

quote [ Why a Local Museum Keeps Burying Whales Under Raleigh, North Carolina.
(It mostly has to do with grease.) ]

I always wondered how they prepared very large skeletons for display, and had no idea that horse dung was the perfect answer.

Amanda Hendrix - I Wouldn't Live On Mars. But Titan...

quote [ Why Titan?

To start with, let's make clear that Titan is a moon that, in many ways, acts more like a planet. It has a thick atmosphere, with about 1.5 times the surface pressure of Earth's atmosphere. None of the 177 other moons in the solar system has such an atmosphere. Plus, Titan is the only place in the solar system, other than Earth, with stable surface liquids: Titan has lakes and seas on its surface. So Titan is a remarkable, and very Earth-like, world. ]

Greetings and happy humpday SE!

KRACK Attacks: Breaking WPA2

quote [ We discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted. ]

Well fuck, what a great way to start the week if you work in IT.

FCC will allow Alphabet?s Project Loon to deliver air balloon LTE to Puerto Rico

quote [ The helium balloons are expected to deliver emergency LTE cellular reception to allow residents and local governments to contact friends and family, coordinate relief and restoration efforts, and reestablish communication with the outside world. It?s unclear to what extent Loon will cover Puerto Rico or parts of the Virgin Islands, or how many balloons the team plans to deploy. ]

Now they need to allow peer-to-peer text passing when phones can't detect an active cell tower (built into all QUALCOMM chips by the way).

The world?s oldest scientific satellite is still in orbit

quote [ Launched in March 1958, this grapefruit-sized shiny metal sphere was boosted into a high elliptical orbit. And it?s still there, passing between 650 and 3,800km (406 to 2,375 miles) from the Earth. ]

Remember when a cutting edge research satellite could be installed on the launch vehicle outdoors by a few guys in jackets instead of in a hermetically sealed clean room?

John Kelly's personal cellphone was compromised, White House believes

quote [ White House tech support discovered the suspected breach after Kelly turned his phone in to tech support staff this summer.

White House officials believe that chief of staff John Kelly?s personal cellphone was compromised, potentially as long ago as December, according to three U.S. government officials.

The discovery raises concerns that hackers or foreign governments may have had access to data on Kelly?s phone while he was secretary of Homeland Security and after he joined the West Wing. ]

Might account for some of the leaks. These guys should just use burner phones, get a new one every few days.

GM Is Going All Electric, Will Ditch Gas- and Diesel-Powered Cars

quote [ GM currently offers one extended-range electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Bolt EV, but will add two others within 18 months, said Executive Vice President Mark Reuss, with ?at least 20? to be in the line-up by 2023. In addition, the company is developing a new truck platform powered by hydrogen fuel cells, dubbed Surus, short for Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure. ]

Long way to go but a definite new direction for one of the big 3.
