How a music video is (not) made: Young Thug's latest music video is about how they couldn't make the video

Young Thug mostly didn't even show up, but he did contribute video of himself eating Cheetos...

It also answers the question "Why are some music videos so bizarre?"

Crawl Budget: do you understand the factors that determine how the Google search bot crawls your site?

+Google Webmasters​ explains that having many low-value-add URLs can negatively affect a site's crawling and indexing. They found that the low-value-add URLs fall into these categories, in order of significance:

* Faceted navigation and session identifiers

* On-site duplicate content

* Soft error pages

* Hacked pages

* Infinite spaces and proxies

* Low quality and spam content

Wasting server resources on pages like these will drain crawl activity from pages that do actually have value, which may cause a significant delay in discovering great content on a site.

Not sure what those are? Get all the details on the +Google Webmasters​ blog:

Last chance to download your Vines! Plus Twitter starts looping short video

Vine shuts down tomorrow, so download your videos now!

Meanwhile, Twitter had started looping all videos shorter than 6.5 seconds.

TechCrunch notes this could be good for Twitter:

Even without Vine, Twitter still has a chance to be a hub for quick videos. The platform’s real-time nature and largely unsorted feed make it a natural place for clips you wouldn’t necessarily want to navigate to a full YouTube page to watch (with possible pre-rolls ads) and that might not survive well on Facebook’s algorithmically curated News Feed.

Making Vines and other sub-6.5-second videos loop correctly could also provide an alternative place for them beyond Instagram, where many creators said they’d be sharing after Vine went away.

35 Years of Cyberwar: The Squirrels Are Winning

So far, however, the damage done by cyber attacks, both real (Stuxnet's destruction of Iranian uranium enrichment centrifuges and a few brief power outages alleged to have been caused by Russian hackers using BlackEnergy malware) and imagined or exaggerated (the Iranian "attack" on a broken flood control dam in Rye, New York), cannot begin to measure up to an even more significant cyber-threat—squirrels.

That was the message delivered at the Shmoocon security conference on Friday by Cris "SpaceRogue" Thomas, former member of the L0pht Heavy Industries hacking collective and now a security researcher at Tenable. In his presentation—entitled, "35 Years of Cyberwar: The Squirrels Are Winning"—SpaceRogue revealed the scale of the squirrelly threat to worldwide critical infrastructure by presenting data gathered by CyberSquirrel 1, a project that gathers information on animal-induced infrastructure outages collected from sources on the Internet.

Although as adespoton points out in the comments on the post, there is a difference:

The big difference between The Squirrel Threat and "cyber warfare" though is that squirrels don't generally act on the agenda of a foreign state. Their attacks are generally localized, and thus aren't really that big an issue.

Comparing randomly distributed squirrel attacks (mostly against citizen-supporting infrastructure) with nation state attacks aimed at bringing down specific pieces of infrastructure with the goal of disabling specific domestic activities... they're comparable, but it's like comparing acorns and peanuts.

CyberSquirrel1 project shows fuzzy-tailed intruders cause more damage than "cyber" does.
