Cleaning house

January 30th, 2002 § Comments off § permalink

I keep a list of Web pages that I intend to post here. The list is getting ridiculously long, though, so here’s several links all at once.

Informing Ourselves to Death
(” The computer and its information cannot answer any of the fundamental questions we need to address to make our lives more meaningful and humane.”)

Why Cryptosystems Fail
(good encryption does not a secure network make; it’s how it’s implemented that counts)

The Demon In the Freezer
(1999 New Yorker article; “No one knows exactly who has smallpox today, or where they keep the virus, or what they intend to do with it”)

Birth of a Movement
(“Three thousand marketing messages rammed into your neocortex every day, whether you like it or not”)

I’m back

Sorry about my absence for the past week or so; my hosting service vanished rather abruptly. I’m back now, although I lost about a month of posts. Oh well. New posts shortly.

Where am I?
