Since we know that computers connected to the internet are vulnerable to outside hacking, an air gap should protect against those attacks. (Osama Bin Laden used one.) Air gaps might be conceptually simple, but they’re hard to maintain in practice.

How Facebook Makes Us Unhappy

Ally Greer's curator insight, September 12, 2013 2:09 PM

Does being uber-connected make us more or less happy? This debate has been going on since social networking has become as prominent as it is in our lives.


To quote this article:

In ongoing research, the psychologist Timothy Wilson has learned, as he put it to me, that college students start going “crazy” after just a few minutes in a room without their phones or a computer. “One would think we could spend the time mentally entertaining ourselves,” he said. “But we can’t. We’ve forgotten how.”


Social networking - and Facebook in particular - can be the cause of heightened sadness, anxiety, jealousy, etc, because it makes it easier to see what we're missing out on. That said, without it, we're equally anxious or bored because of the culture that has developed around the perpetual need to stay connected. 


Will the vicious cycle ever see its end?

Why the NSA's attacks on the internet must be made public

Why the NSA's attacks on the internet must be made public | Computer Literacy | Scoop.it

Today, the Guardian is reporting on how the NSA targets Tor users, along with details of how it uses centrally placed servers on the internet to attack individual computers. This builds on a Brazilian news story from last week that, in part, shows that the NSA is impersonating Google servers to users; a German story on how the NSA is hacking into smartphones; and a Guardian story from two weeks ago on how the NSA is deliberately weakening common security algorithms, protocols, and products.

The common thread among these stories is that the NSA is subverting the internet and turning it into a massive surveillance tool. The NSA's actions are making us all less safe, because its eavesdropping mission is degrading its ability to protect the US.

I love the way the first sentence of this article is phrased. Perhaps our dreams and those of others around us could give us interesting data about the way our minds work as individuals and as a society.


The only questions is - would you be willing to wake up every so often to record your dreams, for the love of science?
