GENE HACKERS RESURRECT ANCIENT VIRUS, CREATE POWERFUL GENE THERAPY VECTOR
Scientists at at Massachusetts Eye and Ear and Schepens Eye Research Institute have resurrected an ancient virus, and found that the virus is highly effective at delivering gene therapies to the liver, muscle, and retina. This discovery could potentially be used to design gene therapies that are safer and more potent, and have a wider reach, than therapies currently available. The discovery is published July 30 in Cell Reports with the title "In ...

Thanks Google for defending our freedom outside of Europe - at least. Right to be forgotten is just another word for censorship!
Google said Thursday it would not comply with a French privacy regulator’s order to enact the “right to be forgotten” across non-European versions of the site.

The internet is based on host to host communications that’s the
reason IP headers have source/destination address. I strongly agree with Van Jacobson’s
researches when he says that that model is not the best solution to the world
we’re living now of massive content/data. In his phase he says… we should secure
the data itself, not the pipes. I profoundly understand what he is talking
about because in 90’s I was very interested on Public Keys Infrastructure
(PKI). It was a time of PGP’s rebels, my tutor at the time was working on a
project called FreeIPC witch is a mix of X.509 and Web-of-Trust , we used to
have a long conversations about books of history, rewrite the history, how to authenticate
a historical document, patents, etc. It was a nice time in my life witch gave
me a short job glance in that field, which I quit because trust me, it can be a
dangerous job as well if your employee ask you to setup a passport CA in a
country in the middle east . The problem we were talking seems to me still the
same in its essence and it did not changed too much and I think this is in part
the problem we’re facing now. For instance, why Google doesn’t want NSA cryptographic
keys in their servers but at the same time does not give me the power to
generate my own cryptographic keys to protect my data? Even if they put in a
contract that only myself can see my data and those who I allowed to… this is
not convincing me, sorry ask any cryptographer and they will laughs about it. Well
backing to network point of view and communication theory if you have time
please watch this talk (jump to 43 minutes) https://youtu.be/oCZMoY3q2uM?t=43m7s
it’s very insightful. What I think that is missing about Information-centric
networking (ICN) security model to work is the financial incentive to maintain the
cryptographic trustless schema like we have at bitcoin blockchian model. I do
like google, I’m investing in a dignity retirement by investing in stocks and
when I talking about Google I’m talking as very small shareholder. So I want to
google to thrive, but not being evil… otherwise I can live with my government pension
with no problems. ;)
