How many fireflies would it take to match the brightness of the Sun?

Luke Doty
Prev · Sun Bug. How many fireflies would it take to match the brightness of the Sun? Luke Doty. Not that many! I mean, it's definitely one of those gigantic numbers with lots of zeroes, but in the grand scheme of things, there aren't as many zeroes as you might expect.

Here's a catch-up on the story so far:

* Theresa May is the new UK Prime Minister. As the Last Candidate Standing, she seemed acceptable only because the other candidates pushed the Overton Window so far to the right that she looked like a left-winger by comparison. In fact she is a Religious Right authoritarian who wants to block immigration and who was the force behind Britain's surveillance state expansion & favours empowering the Ministry of Magic to make it so.

* Boris Johnson is the new UK Foreign Minister. Don't be fooled by the stand-up-comic persona. Although a Remain supporter as late as February, he was one of the leaders of the Leave campaign for apparently tactical reasons and is perfectly happy with rhetorical untruth in the style of Trump if it's what his audience wants to hear. A highly-paid and eloquent national newspaper columnist for the right-wing Daily Telegraph (he was sacked by The Times for making up quotes), he has used his column to make offensive racist comments about all sorts of foreign nationals. As Mayor of London he bought water cannon to use against British citizens, a move so extreme Theresa May (then Home Secretary) ridiculed and blocked it. Since he was born in the USA, he was subject to US tax law but delinquent in submitting returns so has renounced his US citizenship to evade those responsibilities. Even he was surprised to have been appointed.

* Liam Fox is the new "Trade Secretary". He previously resigned in shame from a similar position in an earlier government when it was discovered he had been taking a relative along to sit in on trade negotiations and make side deals. Fox was a Leave campaigner comfortable with "contextual truth'.

* David Davis is the new minister for Brexit (a not-unreasonable decision since defining, negotiating and executing Brexit will be a more-than-full-time job needing a huge civil service team for the next 5 years). Davis is currently suing the UK government in the EU courts. Davis was a Leave campaigner.

* Amber Rudd (home secretary) and Philip Hammond (Chancellor of the Exchequer) both seem safe pairs of hands at this point relative to the others, albeit telling the truth about the consequences of Brexit which makes them sound extreme. So it looks like management of domestic affairs is in "remain" hands and of foreign affairs is with a bunch of extremists who at best will destroy their own careers and at worst will start another war.

Boris Johnson. Minister of foreign affairs. If this would be a Monty Python skit I would laugh for hours. But now I'm shocked.

And a ministry for #brexit. Now please invoke #Article50 ASAP. Goodbye, UK. Good riddance to you. Time to move on.

After a torrid few weeks arguing about what to do, while the DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) became ever more corrupted due to repeated attempts to recover the money without fixing the code problem that made it impossible to prevent the money being stolen again, the Ethereum community has finally bowed [...]

security quote of the week on LWN:

"While all three arms of the US government have drawn back on surveillance powers following the Snowden revelations, Theresa May has taken the hardest possible line. Her Investigatory Powers Bill will give her successors as Home Secretary sweeping powers to order firms in the UK to hand over data and help GCHQ hack their customers. Brexit will shield these powers from challenge in the European Court of Justice, making it much harder for a UK company to claim “adequacy” for its data protection arrangements in respect of EU data subjects. This will make it still less attractive for an IT company to keep in the UK either data that could be seized or engineering staff who could be coerced."

Wow...
The Royal Society has just published a report on cybersecurity research. I was a member of the steering group that tried to keep the policy team headed in the right direction. Its recommendation that governments preserve the robustness of encryption is welcome enough, given the new Russian law ...
