Android PSA: There's a significant MMS attack called Stagefright that you need to take action to block.

Basically, to be safe, dig into the settings of all SMS/MMS text messaging apps you have and disable any option called "Auto retrieve" in the MMS section.

For example, on my phone I use Hangouts but also have the original Messaging app.
Messaging: Menu>Settings, Uncheck Auto-retrieve under MMS section.
Hangouts: Menu>Settings>SMS, Uncheck Auto retrieve MMS

However, I think if you do receive an attack message, opening it will still trigger the attack. So make sure not to open a suspicious message and delete it by holding your finger on the message and trashing it without actually opening the message.

I'm not sure whether I should be disturbed or amused when Internet culture comes back full-circle to traditional platforms.

Awesome talk by Bret Victor:
Bret Victor - Inventing on Principle
He has some really cool demos of his JavaScript IDE, which displays immediate feedback as you code. You may have seen the shortened clip with the Braid character running around, but it's worth watching the whole talk. He has some interesting things to say about design philosophy.
