Are you familiar with the problem of "Belling The Cat"? All the mice will benefit but one mouse must volunteer to tie the bell to her collar.
While lending for interest is the second-oldest profession, identity theft is a very recent phenomenon that originates in the use of identifying numbers for credit reporting. These provide Unique Keys for databases records.
"Michael David Crawford" is quite common; I figure the reason I try and try and try and try but just can't get laid is that my Evil Twin here in Washington State was a registered sex offender who did time in Walla Walla then got the idea in his head to open fire on the Lakewood Police while wearing a motorcycle helmet with metal plates duct-taped to it.
I expect we are cousins. Google our name and you will find we resemble each other.
We have always had credit but not always computers. One required credit references from live humans - written by hand, with an inkwell-dipped quill pen.
I lost everything when a medical clinic stored my plaintext Social on a notebook computer in gross violation of the HIPAA regulation then left it in a car in the dead of night. I have nothing to lose by Belling The Cat myself:

From aortega at Hacker News:
Independent researches have found several security vulnerabilities in the e-voting machines that will be used this Sunday in the elections of local authorities in Buenos Aires. Tonight police raided homes of several of those researchers.
The vulnerabilities include a filtration of the SSL keys the machines use to communicate and authenticate with the central counting servers.
In spanish, about some of the vulnerabilities.

Holyghost called but Nash no longer hears voices. Hence a beautiful mind was ejected and pronounced dead on the scene. I wonder if it was Abel who lost his cool at the waiting game or is it that some other Paraclete made a miscalculation on the timing belt.
Do you believe in Emerson's conviction that Americans sometimes fail to see the best of our own people and in their own best hours and in their own best thoughts?
Ever since 911 and wars we waged since then, terror reigned supreme. It has obscured our focus on what America really stands for to the world. Too many times, an indictment turns into a declaration of war between race, sex and whatever one can name it for the worst in us.
Today, this particular reflection is prompted by Temple Univ. Physics Dept. Chair, Dr. Xi xiaoxing being accused of 4 counts of wire fraud and notice of forfeiture in an indictment unsealed in eastern district court of Pennsylvania of US of A this Thursday.
My aim in building The Global Computer Employer Index is to link directly to the "Jobs" or "Careers" section of tech company websites. Unlike the more-common job boards, I don't list individual jobs, rather it is up to each company to list them on their own sites. Job board posts are taken down when the position is filled, or when the term they are paid for expires. My listings are permanent.
Do not be dismayed if your company is not listed; just mail your homepage to email@example.com There is no charge for this service nor will there ever be.
The page for Santa Cruz County explains how this started back in 1997. Last year I decided to cover the entire planet.

UTC New Year 2015 is here. My thanks be with Steven Rainwater and Raph and all gathered here.I wish to bring to y'all attention of what I came across during my Christmas visit 2014 at family gathering, to mark the happy occasion of celebration of Shakespear's life ( 26 April 1564 (baptised) – 23 April 1616 ). His art of his time had a far greater impact on modern thoughts, than I have realized, till this day, thanks to Prof. Lars Engle and other countless innovative social programmers' most selfless and sacrificial endeavour paid by sunny hours of their teaching and dark hours of their writing, thinking what really matters to teach about our human life and human society as we, not knew and experienced but imagined since our long forgotten childhood days with unspeakable words, thoughts and voices towards all possibilities in our unknown destiny and all its senseless yet comprehensible dream.
An open letter (with its sources and other formats) from the hacker king of the open content / Web 2.0 revolution (~2000-2014) to all hackers / actions heroes and geeks / amateurs from the film creators world, the software development world and elsewhere, about officially concluding that revolution and starting the next one. In part it should be done by filming films, either indie
or more professional, of the “Summerschool at the NSA” (#SummerNSA) screenplay which proved to be the magnus opus of the hacker king of that revolution, and passing the baton to the new hacker queen.
The “Summerschool at the NSA” meme dates back to a correspondence between my friend and I back in the haydays of 1997-1998 (with Web 1.0, before the burst of the tech bubble) where I said that
Even the NSA doesn’t have enough programmers. But it is not likely that they will have more, and that’s because Summerschool at the NSA may might as well be the name of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s next movie. and he replied that
And as opposed to I Know What You Did Last Summer, it is going to be scary.. It was based on a hunch of what I knew about the NSA from fellow Internet people and from watching the highly recommended film Sneakers.
When services are not conveying but users interact the GPL does not seem to come into play. While companies like Moodlerooms allege they donate a lot of funding to Moodle, we are unable to use the source code from this deriv because it is "Cloud" based and no copies are distributed.
We have just published the overview of the libraries and modules that various developers use in they Android mobile phone applications.
Recently, it has come to my attention of this strange case of Dr. Richard Arjun Karl, a minimal invasive spine surgeon, operating in NJ from 2002 to 2012.
I've read the official judgement and all related testimonies and findings.
Pure mathematics is no longer a game for the young and restless only. Thanks to Chinese American Dr. Zhang Yitang's daring effort at raising the bar for 'bounded gap of prime numbers' from two to 70 millions, hence start the race towards solving 'Twin Prime Conjecture'

This is an open letter from me (= Shlomi Fish) to Ms. Sarah Michelle Gellar (the Hollywood film and television actress) about the production of a documentary film titled “Summerschool at the NSA” which will document what is really going on in the NSA headquarters. I can always be contacted about that, whether by Ms. Gellar or by whoever wishes to using numerous online and unobscured means.
