At the Usenix security conference in Seattle last week, a group of researchers from the University of California at Berkeley, Oxford University and the University of Geneva presented a paper (PDF here) that hints at the darker side of a future where brain sensors are used to let thoughts manipulate computers as fluidly as a mouse.

The art of rumour in the age of digital reproduction | Tech power | Scoop.it

In almost all social unrest and inter community conflicts, print culture produced real and fantastic exaggerations of killings, atrocities and massacres. [...] After the advent of the cellular phone, a growing section of the population is now the source of new media output — that in turn links to online social networks, mainstream television (through ‘citizen’ journalism), and peer-to-peer exchanges of text, music and video.
