Apparently a fucking grade schooler breached a regional database in Norway.

On Monday Bergen county got breached. Estimated to have exposed ~35 000 people's personal data. He basically got access to a domain-wide Administrator user across a shitload of Windows servers. And by extension the SQL databases that stored a bunch of data about a ton of people. None of the news articles I've seen mentioned exactly what data it was however.

Today the western police branch managed to trace it back to some kid in fucking grade school.

And they also found out that he warned them about the security hole way back in spring and only rekt them to actually make them pay attention to it.

"A sense of ownership has been key in the regreening of Niger. Until the mid-1980s, every tree was considered to belong to the state. When this changed, regreening began, as people were happier to look after trees that belonged to them. In areas with the best cover, they organised patrols to protect their trees from passing farmers and neighbouring villagers seeking firewood."

Tragedy of the commons my ass.

How would the world look like if psychology, philosophy and meditation were tough at every level of school (like from 5 years old) ? A "utopia"?

I'd like to make leaving Twitter more convenient for anyone inclined to jump, and I've noticed one of the things that keeps me there is it's where a bunch of media outlets post and they don't run accounts here.

So I'm starting up a GamesIndustry.biz account that will toot out stories for people who want to keep up with industry news:

#Tepco has confirmed it plans to release the radioactive material from the #Fukushima plant into the ocean saying that the “decision has already been made”. The decision has an upset local fisherman who says the decision will kill their industry as a result of a massive loss of sea life.

De hecho buscamos muchas más personas y organizaciones que quieran colaborar ante los abusos del Estado contra disidentes, inmigrantes y otras personas agredidas, detenidas, enjuiciadas o encarceladas. Pero para empezar, dos personas serían suficientes para dar el primer paso.
