Now that's a well-done trailer. Enough to be intriguing and showing very little of the actual progress of the film.

Thou shalt not soil the integrity of cut-and-paste.

"For many years, security researchers have warned that CSS can be used to trick users by putting different text on the clipboard than the highlighted text on the screen, inserting malicious commands in place of innocuous ones. But a new attack, dubbed "Pastejacking," uses javascript to make much sneakier clipboard insertions, including one proof-of-concept that changes the content of the clipboard over time, so a quick paste produces a different result to one that comes later."

"Regardless of his politics, this news should disturb everyone. People talk a lot about the dominance of the 1% or in this case more like a tiny fraction of the 1%. But being able to give massive political contributions actually pales in comparison to the impact of being able to destroy a publication you don't like by combining the machinery of the courts with anonymity and unlimited funds to bleed a publication dry."
Here and there we've reported on the Hulk Hogan lawsuit against Gawker. As you probably know, Hogan won the case and won a massive judgment of $115 million dollars and an additional $25 million in punitive damages. While it is widely believed that the verdict is likely to be reversed on appeal or at least the judgment dramatically reduced, Gawker had to immediately place $50 million into escrow. The anticipated need to produce that sum forced Gaw...

"Of all the great and terrible things about the internet, its ability to shape and rewrite reality might be the most dystopian. History is written by the victors, and every day it looks like the losers are humanity and meaning. In the Metal Gear Solid series, a collection of sinister artificial intelligences manipulate bulk information online to keep the world firmly under their control. A decade ago, I wrote some fan fiction that continues to distort the truth about a knock-off Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Everything you think you know about Street Sharks is a lie."
...
"The thought that keeps bloggers up at night is that this kind of stuff is actually happening all the time. Whether it’s purposeful long-term trolling or information that’s been unintentionally incorrectly reported, the internet is rapidly increasing how radically and rapidly history gets rewritten. When everyone reports on everyone else’s reporting, all it takes is one faulty source, one Roxie, to poison the entire cycle."

"Here’s where the problem gets even more insidious and impossible to solve: Because I watched Street Sharks as a child and played with the toys (like the monster truck with shark teeth), my lies were mixed with half-remembered truths. My new version was still about four dudes who got mutated into grotesque, radical shark men, and even some of my casting was correct, since for some reason, I was really into memorizing cartoon voice actors at the time. That ambiguity, that Trojan Horse of truth, is probably why the lie was so effective and successful. Honestly, it’s still hard for me to completely separate fact from my blurry fiction. I legitimately can’t tell what’s 100% real and what isn’t when it comes to Street Sharks. That would be horrifying if it wasn’t so funny. I’m living in an ontological nightmare of my own making. It’s jawsome!"
The incredible untold story about how history is meaningless on the internet.

Several visitors to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art this week were fooled into thinking a pair of glasses set on the floor by a 17-year-old prankster was a postmodern masterpiece. “Upon first arrival we were quite impressed with the artwork and paintings presented in the huge facility,” TJ Khayatan told BuzzFeed. “However, some of the ‘art’ wasn’t very surprising to some of us.”

This was a first, he said, in more than a decade reporting for the AP. He has made access to information requests in about 15 countries, from Norway to Rwanda. “I’ve never seen someone use an arts and crafts method in order to hide information from me,” he told the Star.

Raphael Satter, an Associated Press correspondent in Paris, was dumbfounded when he received files from the Public Health Agency of Canada that were censored using only Scotch tape and paper.

I'll guess they did that with the intent of running the page in a photocopier, and someone mixed up the original with the copy.

We'll see. They've got bombast. Now they just need to remember that what made Trek was message.
