How much are you worth?

Webadvertising is a tricky and dirty business. Webpublishers, dataminers and advertisers are running around the clock making as much money as possible from so-called 'user profiles' A user profile is you, the reader. Wether you like it or not, your daily usage of the interwebs did make you a profile, even if you did not sign up for anything or use a pseudonym. Your profile is then actively traded and paid for, continously. Inria, a collective from France, has been able to break this process open a little bit, and developed a method to determine how much your profile is being sold for.

What's wrong with the kids these days?

On the moral decay of the Dutch hacker scene A lot has changed since the days when the people around Hacktic set up and defined the Dutch hacker scene. The Hang Out made way for a variety of hackerspaces; Hacktic itself is long dead (who needs dead trees to communicate nowadays anyway?) and the crew organizing OHM2013 is a completely different one from the oldies that had set up the Galactic Hacker Party and HIP. In short, we're looking at a complete new generation of Dutch hackers.

The reality of global surveillance - phrack world news

Een aardige tekst, vanalles en nog wat en vooral dat je niemands blauwe ogen moet geloven."Global surveillance is no longer stuff from science fiction books, or attributed only to the most powerful secret services in the world. It becomes a requirement for most ISPs to stay in business.""It all comes down to knowledge. Knowledge cannot be obtained by believe.
