A fascinating list from kottke of extremely bad password requirements. Do the people who write these policies realize they are giving hackers a blueprint for reducing the overall size of the namespace they have to search to crack passwords?
I tweeted about this but wanted to document it here for posterity. The Attorney General of Texas Child Support website has the wor

My eight-year-olds want me to teach them how to code. I'm sure there are some good tools for this, but I'm a little overwhelmed trying to find the right place to start. So far I've found Scratch (scratch.mit.edu) and Greenfoot (www.greenfoot.org). Anyone have other suggestions?

They think they are going to build the next Skyrim, I'll be happy if I can find a good tool to introduce them to a little bit of logic and OOP.

For those who use LinkedIn, please pay attention! You need to listen to this. Most people log in to LinkedIn with their email address. And many of them use the same password they use when logging in to email. If that's you, then you need to go change your password for EVERY SITE where you use that email/password combo -- not just your email address.  If the hackers who broke into LinkedIn captured your password they can start running that combo against lots of commonly used sites. You can see if they captured your hashed password at the link below. Do it now. Don't wait until you're a victim.

I'm always very dubious about the announcement of NEW! WORLD CHANGING! TECHNOLOGY! And I won't even pretend I understand the science behind it. But this could be very, very amazing:
After four years of incredulity and not-so-gentle mocking, researchers have finally proven that it's possible to simultaneously transmit multiple radio channels over exactly the same wireless frequenc...
