Good. These events don't get enough coverage.

It's odd that the article didn't include a link to the mentioned "declaration of peace and guide to prevent radicalisation" document, but I found it here:
http://impic.ie/irish-muslim-declaration-of-peace-guide-to-prevent-radicalisation-launches-during-protest-against-isis.html
Muslims from across Ireland gathered in Dublin this afternoon to protest the brutal actions of ISIS.

I don't know what's more scary: that a software vulnerability in your car can let remote attackers control the primary driving controls; or that the same systems can be reprogrammed by anyone who plugs in a USB key.

Edited to add: what the headline doesn't tell you is that the attackers can cut the brakes remotely.
Driving on a highway in St. Louis, WIRED writer Andy Greenberg allowed himself to get car-hacked. Two researchers were able to remotely blast the stereo on his SUV, turn on the windshield wipers and kill the engine. Today, vehicles function almost like smartphones on wheels, but that convenience allows hackers to engage in wireless sabotage. Greenberg joins Hari Sreenivasan to discuss the dangers.

No, no, it's all fine! The company said the attackers would need to write code in order to hack your car...  (the rebuttal/"It's ok, folks, nothing to see here, move along please" is an exercise in facepalm-inducing madness)

Generic missing teenager alert template.

UPDATE: Found on Saturday morning, safe and well, having stayed overnight with a friend. Parents mortified at the implications but have called off the global manhunt.

Maslow's famous hierarchy of needs is not supported by the data. Here's a replacement.

Google just tossed another of its technological crown jewels to the teeming masses. From the people who brought you Google Borg[1], here's Kubernetes[2]. You can now run your applications almost[3] as efficiently as Google does.

[1] OK, they didn't bring you Borg, because Borg was never released to the public. But trust me, it was awesome in every way, and its designers are also Kubernetes' designers.
[2] Borg -> Kube. Get it? There's an implausible Greek explanation for the name, but the truth is that it's an impudent pun on "Cube".
[3] Almost, because Kubernetes uses Docker whereas Borg used a much more efficient container framework.
 
14,000 commits from 400 contributors in one year -- glad we started it :-)  Now ready for production use, be that on GCP or on your own cluster.

Story
Tagline
One/zero discriminator
Introduction
I'm a computer scientist (software developer, network engineer, and system administrator).
Professionally, I'm interested in distributed systems, formal methods, quantum computing, security and the process of engineering reliable software.
Personally, I'm interested in aviation, law, ethics, politics, mathematics, psychology, and new learning experiences of almost any kind.

My favourite word is mamihlapinatapai (each expecting the other to do something first). It narrowly edged out rawa-dawa (the sensation of suddenly realising you can do something reprehensible, and no one is there to witness it).


Bragging rights
I have a gold medal with my name inscribed on one side and "FOR SCIENCE" on the other. I estimate that I was the *Youngest Person in the World* for 250 milliseconds. And, of course, I was TIME magazine's Person Of The Year 2006 and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2012. I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.
Education
  • Trinity College, Dublin
    Computer Science, 1990 - 1994
  • O'Connell School (secondary school)
    1985 - 1990

I wish I lived in Miami so I could make this place my regular gym! I visited from overseas because I'd heard good things about the trainer Lazaro, and he lived up to that reputation. He gave close attention and improved a lot of little things in my technique that my regular CrossFit trainers had overlooked. I came away from this with better fitness and knowledge.
