Monty Python Members Lose 'Spamalot' Musical Profits Dispute
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, July 05 2013 @ 03:22 PM EDT
The Tony Award-winning musical came out in 2005 and was penned by original Monty Python member Eric Idle. It's described in marketing as "lovingly ripped off from" the 1975 film about the Arthurian Legend, and in his lawsuit, Forstater said that he was due money on "spin-offs" under a 1974 agreement between him and the Pythons, including Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam.

During a trial late last year, Forstater's lawyer said his client was the "seventh Python" for purposes of profit-sharing, and that the other members couldn't unilaterally reduce his share.

Amnesty International - USA must not persecute whistleblower Edward Snowden
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, July 05 2013 @ 04:04 PM EDT
The US authorities’ relentless campaign to hunt down and block whistleblower Edward Snowden’s attempts to seek asylum is deplorable and amounts to a gross violation of his human rights Amnesty International said today.

“The US attempts to pressure governments to block Snowden’s attempts to seek asylum are deplorable,” said Michael Bochenek, Director of Law and Policy at Amnesty International.

“It is his unassailable right, enshrined in international law, to claim asylum and this should not be impeded.” er-edward-snowden

Is it just me, or does Oracles letter read like a bad contact ad? (or worse...)

Then again, Java was devellopped to make household appliances like
refridgerators communicate with each other, so maybe it _is_ the electronic
language of love...

A First Grader Explains Why Egyptians Threw Out The Muslim Brotherhood
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, July 06 2013 @ 01:08 PM EDT
This 12 years old boy said a lot of insightful and enlightened things last March, and they make a lot more sense now that Morsi has been overthrown.

If this boy learnt and thought all those things by himself, I'm really, really impressed.
And ashamed of some adult that doesn't even know what a "fascist theocracy" is.

This boy is way ahead of many of his fellow citizens, and even of some Western politicians.
It's not juvenile rage. It's reading the news. Surfing the Internet. Using his own brain. An excellent read & watch, definitely recommended.
I can't beat my wife up and almost kill her, and then tell you this is 'discipline'!

Apple's security strategy: make it invisible
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, July 06 2013 @ 06:06 PM EDT
Bruce Schneier noted this article as interesting,
Apple is famously focused on design and human experience as their top guiding principles. When it comes to security, that focus created a conundrum. Security is all about placing obstacles in the way of attackers, but (despite the claims of security vendors) those same obstacles can get in the way of users, too.
For many years, Apple tended to choose good user experience at the expense of leaving users vulnerable to security risks. That strategy worked for a long time, in part because Apple's comparatively low market share made its products less attractive targets. But as Apple products began to gain in popularity, many of us in the security business wondered how Apple would adjust its security strategies to its new position in the spotlight.

Research paper quantifying how copyright disappears books, youtube resurfaces music and video
Authored by: Anonymous on Sunday, July 07 2013 @ 03:43 PM EDT

The paper shows how long copyright terms disappear books, but how
youtube, with its notice and monetize process, revives music and video.

Methinks its time to start "out-of-print-books".com, operating like
as a division of amazon.
