Are Free Societies at a Disadvantage in National Cybersecurity - Schneier on Security
Jack Goldsmith and Stuart Russell just published an interesting paper, making the case that free and democratic nations are at a structural disadvantage in nation-on-nation cyberattack and defense. From a blog post...
I have long thought this to be true. There are defensive cybersecurity measures that a totalitarian country can take that a free, open, democratic country cannot. And there are attacks against a free, open, democratic country that just don't matter to a totalitarian country. That makes us more vulnerable. (I don't mean to imply -- and neither do Russell and Goldsmith -- that this disadvantage implies that free societies are overall worse, but it is an asymmetry that we should be aware of.)
I do worry that these disadvantages will someday become intolerable. Dan Geer often said that "the price of freedom is the probability of crime." We are willing to pay this price because it isn't that high. As technology makes individual and small-group actors more powerful, this price will get higher. Will there be a point in the future where free and open societies will no longer be able to survive? I honestly don't know.
EDITED TO ADD (6/21): Jack Goldsmith also wrote this.

Kirkville - This Is Included When Apple Sends You Your Data Dump
Apple has made it possible for users in Europe to request a dump of their data. This includes all sorts of historical information, such as all the repairs and support chats you’ve been involved in, everything you’ve purchased – and even updates you’ve downloaded – from the App Store and iTunes Store, Apple Music activity, and more.
I requested my data a week ago, and nothing stood out; except this. There is a special CSV file for this, and I really don’t know why.

HTTP Injector Apps Are Becoming a Popular Method to Obtain Free Internet Access
"HTTP injector" apps traded in public Telegram channels are becoming a popular method of gaining free Internet access on mobile devices.
Such apps work by modifying HTTP headers on network requests with malicious code that tricks "captive portals" into giving the user access to the Internet.
Captive portals are the temporary web pages that some mobile telcos or private WiFi networks show users when trying to access the Internet, sometimes asking for a password or urging the user to recharge his SIM card's credit.

Lefsetz Letter » Blog Archive » Paul Rodgers-This Week’s Podcast
That’s right, this week’s podcast guest is the voice, vocalist extraordinaire, PAUL RODGERS!
I remember distinctly driving in my mom’s Country Squire on the way to the Yale Bowl for a Herman’s Hermits-headed revival concert (the following week it was Led Zeppelin!) and hearing the mellifluous sound of this track emanating from the dashboard, some cuts you only need to hear once to get, to love, to have them seared into your brain. And as great as Paul’s vocal is, the secret ingredient is Paul Kossoff’s guitar-playing, an axeman Paul considers to be the best ever, and Rodgers has worked with Jimmy Page and…
And while I was ensconced at Middlebury I sent away for a free A&M sampler album entitled “Friends” that contained the Free cut “I’ll Be Creepin’.” You should check it out on the above-linked playlist, it’ll get under your skin, especially when Paul croons “I’ll hold you in my arms/Like nobody else,” you’ll swoon. Be sure to check out the rest of the Free tracks included, most were not hits, certainly not in the U.S., but hopefully they’re the blueprint for a resurgent blues-rock sound in the United States, there’s genius here.
And then…
We couldn’t get enough of their love.

A List Of Free Public Domain Name Services (DNS) - GreyCoder
A domain name service (DNS) translates a human-friendly Internet address such as “” into an IP address, such as “”.
DNS blocking is often used to censor web sites because it relatively easily to implement. However, it is also easy to avoid. For example, you can use one of the public servers listed below. Here’s how to change your DNS:
Windows users will need to go into their network device’s properties, then go into the IPv4 properties, and then change the DNS servers in the bottom section of the window.
Mac OS X users will need to go into their System Preferences, click on “Network“, choose their network device, click on “Advanced”, and then enter DNS servers after clicking on the DNS tab.
Linux users will need to click on their network applet, choose Edit Connections, click on “Edit” for your network device, and under the “IPv4 Settings” tab, choose the “Automatic (DHCP) addresses only” profile, and then add the DNS servers into the DNS servers textbox, with each server address separated by a comma.

macOS App Can Detect Evil Maid Attacks
Former NSA hacker and current macOS security expert Patrick Wardle has released this week an app named Do Not Disturb that can be used to detect "evil maid" attacks —a term used to describe unknown persons that leverage physical access to hack and steal data from a device.
Version 1.0.0 of the app, which Wardle is releasing through his website, was built explicitly for laptops and works by detecting "lid open" events.
According to Wardle, when Do Not Disturb detects a lid open event, it can take a series of actions, such as displaying a local alert in the hopes of scaring off the intruder; sending an alert to a remote Apple device (iPhone or iPad); logging the attacker's actions (creation of new processes, USB insertions, etc.), or running custom scripts that could wipe the device, disable the USB interfaces, or automatically re-lock the device every few seconds.
The custom scripts are not included with Do Not Disturb, and the user will need to provide or write them himself.

Chief Justice Roberts Is Reshaping The First Amendment | FiveThirtyEight
It’s been a big year for free speech at the Supreme Court. Two of the most high-profile cases argued before the court so far have revolved around free speech rights, four other cases on the docket this term involve free speech questions, and yet another case where the issue is paramount greets the court on Tuesday.
The court today is hearing arguments on whether the state of California is trampling on the free speech rights of crisis pregnancy centers — nonprofit organizations that do not perform abortions and encourage women to seek alternatives to the procedure — by requiring them to post notices explaining patients’ ability to access abortion and other medical services. In December, attorneys for a baker at Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado argued that a state anti-discrimination law violates his free speech rights as a self-described cake artist by requiring him to make a wedding cake for a gay couple. Last month, the justices heard oral arguments in a case about whether state laws allowing unions to require nonmembers to pay fees violate those employees’ right to free speech.

The Old Reader: behind the scenes - Eliminate the middle man
This is a post that was drafted months ago but never published. Seems appropriate now more than ever so we’re going to release it into the world.
Something about this post title makes me think of some discount warehouse liquidator. “We’ve eliminated the middle man and passed on the savings to you!” But the truth is, that there are times when a middle man is nothing but destructive to a relationship and everybody gains by their removal.
Facebook is the ultimate middle man.
They tax the creators to reach their followers. Boost!
They only show content that leads to stronger performance with their advertisers.
Instagram is the same now. I know we all wish it wasn’t, but it is.
There are really only two parties that matter. The writer and the reader. A middle man always has dubious plans because they provide limited value. Particularly on the open web.
RSS had this right years ago. I realize, technically speaking, RSS platforms like ours are in the middle. The difference is that we’re replaceable. It’s not a private network and people come to us from other platforms all the time and vice versa. It’s healthy.
So why did we all leave to the private network and entrust the middle man? It’s because services like Facebook always start out as free and easy. They are just here to help connect you to your friends. For free. No ads even… isn’t this great?

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s future, fake news, and Russian mischief - Vox
“We will dig through this hole, but it will take a few years.”
It’s been a tough year for Facebook. The social networking juggernaut found itself engulfed by controversies over fake news, electoral interference, privacy violations, and a broad backlash to smartphone addiction. Wall Street has noticed: The company has lost almost $100 billion in market value in recent weeks.
Behind Facebook’s hard year is a collision between the company’s values, ambitions, business model, and mind-boggling scale. Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has long held that the company’s mission is to make the world more open and connected — with the assumption being that a more open and connected world is a better world. That assumption has been sorely tested over the past year. As we’ve seen, a more open world can make it easier for governments to undermine each other’s elections from afar; a more connected world can make it easier to spread hatred and incite violence.

Daring Fireball: Users and Customers
Fascinating, wide-ranging podcast interview (with an excellent transcript) between Vox’s Ezra Klein and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg...
There is certainly something to Zuckerberg’s argument here, but the speciousness of the way he formulates it is that a company working hard to charge you more money is undeniably incentivized to care more about you, if you can afford their product or service. I think it’s undeniable that Apple cares more about the hundreds of millions of people who buy its products than Facebook cares about any of its billions of users.
The more apt Tim Cook quote that applies here is this long-standing internet adage: “When an online service is free, you’re not the customer. You’re the product.” Amazon is undeniably focused on low prices. But Facebook doesn’t charge low prices — they charge high prices. To their customers: advertisers. And a cursory look at their financials indicates they’ve been working hard to raise those prices.
The linguistic trick Zuckerberg pulls here is that nowhere in the entire interview does he mention the words user or customer. He only says you (in the plural sense) and people. That’s a dodge, because unlike Apple — and Amazon — Facebook’s users are not its customers — and most of the controversies they are dealing with today all stem from the fact that they favored their customers (advertisers willing to pay ever-higher sums for ever-more-invasively-targeted ads) at the expense of their users.

Congress Will Finally Make Its Research Reports Public | Electronic Frontier Foundation
The recent omnibus bill passed by Congress contains a nugget of good news for those interested in access to publicly funded research.
Open access activists have long been asking for reports by the Congressional Research Service, or CRS, to be made publicly and easily available. CRS creates a vast array of reports on topics that are of interest to members of Congress. In 2016 alone [.pdf], CRS produced reports for Congress on topics like climate change, agriculture and free trade, offshore oil and gas drilling, and U.S. patent policies. The research produced by CRS has been held in high regard for decades.

Search Insights 2018 - a free, independent report on search -
Over the last 17 years of running Flax I’ve met many people who loudly profess to be experts in various aspects of the search business. Some have a new product or service to sell, that promises to change the game forever; quite often this turns out to be snake oil or simply a new name for an old solution. Others seem to have arrived suddenly, fully-fledged, enthusiastic to convince us old hands that everything will be different now if we all sign up to their new idea.
There’s also a small group of people who tend to be quieter about their expertise, perhaps because as independent practitioners or small business owners they’re not supported by the marketing budgets of large companies. These people survive on their reputation, which has been built steadily on a record of solid advice, honesty and neutrality. I’m now lucky enough to be part of this group – an informal network of experts in subjects as diverse as search for Sharepoint, intranet strategy and taxonomy management. Occasionally we collaborate on projects, often we recommend each other to our clients and it’s always hugely enjoyable to meet in person and discuss the latest trends and industry landscape. This informal network means Flax can offer more services to our clients – and if we can’t help, we probably know someone we trust who can.

Daring Fireball: Script Debugger 7.0
Huge update to one of the longest-standing and best Mac apps ever made, Script Debugger. Script Debugger 7 now has a free Lite mode that is way, way better than Apple’s own Script Editor. Even if you only tinker with AppleScript occasionally, Script Debugger Lite should be your script editor. And if you’re even vaguely serious about AppleScript, you simply have to try the full version of Script Debugger. It has saved me hours of time in the many years I’ve been using it.
AppleScript has quietly picked up a bunch of powerful new features in recent years, particularly AppleScriptObjC — a way to develop AppleScript-based applications with a rich user interface in Xcode. Script Debugger 7 has a slew of AppleScriptObjC features, including code completion and a lot more.

Playboy's Copyright Lawsuit Threatens Online Expression, Boing Boing Argues - TorrentFreak
After being branded a clickbait site by Playboy, popular blog Boing Boing has stressed the importance of hyperlinks to a Federal Court in California. Links are a crucial part of the Internet and an important tool for free speech, it argues. This means that, under the right conditions, linking to copyright-infringing material should be considered fair use.
Early 2016, Boing Boing co-editor Xeni Jardin published an article in which she linked to an archive of every Playboy centerfold image till then.
“Kind of amazing to see how our standards of hotness, and the art of commercial erotic photography, have changed over time,” Jardin commented.

Liberty University booted an anti-Trump Christian author from campus - Vox
Jonathan Martin's removal reveals political fault lines among evangelicals.
Liberty University, the evangelical Christian college founded by the late political firebrand and Moral Majority leader Jerry Falwell, removed visiting anti-Trump evangelical author Jonathan Martin from its campus and its president announced he would be permanently barred.
Martin, a longtime critic of Liberty University’s close association with the Trump administration, was visiting the Lynchburg, Virginia, campus earlier this week as a guest of Johnnyswim, a band that was performing on campus, and had planned to host a prayer meeting with like-minded students the following morning. Instead, Martin told Vox, armed security guards escorted him out of the backstage area following the show.
Martin’s expulsion reveals deep fault lines within the evangelical community over some of its most prominent members’ willingness to partner with an administration that has been criticized by Christians and non-Christians alike for displaying white nationalist and xenophobic sympathies.

Protect net neutrality and internet freedom: World Wide Web inventor – World Wide Web Foundation
This Op-Ed from our Founding Director, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, was first published by USA Today
Treating all content equally online is key to individual empowerment, democracy and economic growth. But the FCC is threatening to take that away.
How do you use the World Wide Web? People use it for all kinds of different things: to read email, post an update on social media, check in to a work meeting, navigate to a destination, enjoy a favorite song or album. It’s your choice.
When I invented the World Wide Web as an information sharing system in 1989, I aimed to create a neutral space where everyone could create, share, debate, innovate, learn and dream. That’s why I gave my invention away for free, so that anyone, anywhere could access and build on it without permission. My vision was an online space that would give people freedom — and America’s entrepreneurial, optimistic spirit embraced it with enthusiasm.

Neil Young to unveil free online music archive on December 1st | Consequence of Sound
Coinciding with the release of his new album, The Visitor
Neil Young has big plans for December 1st. In addition to releasing his new album, The Visitor, the classic rocker has now revealed plans to open up a full archive of his music. Better yet, it will initially be available for free.
In a recent Facebook post, Young stated, “[The archive is] a place you can visit and experience every song I have ever released in the highest quality your machine will allow. It’s the way it’s supposed to be. In the beginning, everything is free.”
A lengthy note on Neil Young Archives goes into further detail about the endeavor, explaining that it uses Xstream Music high resolution streaming by OraStream. The format purportedly “adapts seamlessly” to available bandwidth in order to deliver “the best audio quality possible, directly from the original high resolution masters.”

Stop the Cap! FCC Chairman Confirms Agency Cannot Revoke Licenses Over News Coverage ·
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s chairman said Tuesday the agency does not have authority to revoke broadcast licenses, despite suggestions from President Donald Trump.
Ajit Pai, a Republican who was named chairman of the telecommunications regulator in January, broke days of silence by rejecting Trump’s tweet that the FCC could challenge the license of NBC after stories Trump declared were not true.
“Under the law, the FCC does not have the authority to revoke a license of a broadcast station based on the content,” Pai said at a forum. “The FCC under my leadership will stand for the First Amendment.”
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

Conservatives are the real campus thought police squashing academic freedom - The Washington Post
Last week, I sent a string of relatively uncontroversial tweets in the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, in which I sought to answer a question about mass shootings in the United States: Why are these crimes almost always carried out by white men? “It’s the white supremacist patriarchy, stupid,” I tweeted, before then diagnosing a sense of double entitlement — as white people and as men — that, when frustrated, can occasionally lead to violent consequences.
My argument was not new, but rather reflects decades of research on how race and gender function in our society. To be both white and male is to be subject to a potent cocktail of entitlement to economic and political power, and to dominate nonwhite and female bodies. When that entitlement is frustrated, it can lead to what the criminologist Mike King calls “aggrieved whiteness,” an ambient furor based on the idea that white Americans have become oppressed victims of politically correct multiculturalism.

Daring Fireball: Drexel Caves to Anonymous Internet Trolls, Places Tenured Professor on Administrative Leave
George Ciccariello-Maher, tenured associate professor of politics and global studies at Drexel University (my alma mater), in an op-ed for The Washington Post headlined “Conservatives Are the Real Campus Thought Police Squashing Academic Freedom”...
Drexel is setting a cowardly, shameful example here. Ciccariello-Maher is not being placed on leave because of the content of his thread of tweets in response to last week’s gun massacre in Las Vegas, but simply because a bunch of anonymous white dudes sent threats — and, let’s face it, because of the bad PR of having Ciccariello-Maher unjustly vilified by Fox News.

Daring Fireball: Poll: College Students Are Hostile Toward Free Speech
Catherine Rampell, writing for The Washington Post...
Even worse, a large segment of them fundamentally do not understand the First Amendment...
This notion equating speech with violence is more than just an irritation. It’s ammunition for the right to shut down legitimate protest. It’s self-defeating for people on the left to take this stance. Sticks and stones, folks.
UPDATE: Polling experts are casting serious doubts on this poll’s methodology. But whether this poll is valid or not, there’s no question in my mind that today’s youth have a serious problem with free speech. There’s a reason why many comedians won’t play college campuses anymore — too many kids can’t take a joke.

Daring Fireball: Polling Experts Cast Doubt on Widely Cited College Free Speech Survey
Lois Beckett, reporting for The Guardian:
Polling experts are raising concerns about a new survey thatfound nearly 20% of American college students believe it’s appropriate to use violence to silence offensive speech. […]
However, his survey was not administered to a randomly selected group of college students nationwide, what statisticians call a “probability sample”. Instead, it was given to an opt-in online panel of people who identified as current college students.
“If it’s not a probability sample, it’s not a sample of anyone, it’s just 1,500 college students who happen to respond,” Zukin said, calling it “junk science”.
“It’s an interesting piece of data,” Michael Traugott, a polling expert at the University of Michigan’s Center for Political Studies, said. “Whether it represents the proportion of all college students who believe this is unknown.”
Important follow-up to this piece I posted earlier in the week.

Fighting Neo-Nazis and the Future of Free Expression | Electronic Frontier Foundation
In the wake of Charlottesville, both GoDaddy and Google have refused to manage the domain registration for the Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website that, in the words of the Southern Poverty Law Center, is “dedicated to spreading anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism.” Subsequently Cloudflare, whose service was used to protect the site from denial-of-service attacks, has also dropped them as a customer, with a telling quote from Cloudflare’s CEO: “Literally, I woke up in a bad mood and decided someone shouldn’t be allowed on the Internet. No one should have that power.”

Why We Terminated Daily Stormer
Earlier today, Cloudflare terminated the account of the Daily Stormer. We've stopped proxying their traffic and stopped answering DNS requests for their sites. We've taken measures to ensure that they cannot sign up for Cloudflare's services ever again.
Our terms of service reserve the right for us to terminate users of our network at our sole discretion. The tipping point for us making this decision was that the team behind Daily Stormer made the claim that we were secretly supporters of their ideology.
Our team has been thorough and have had thoughtful discussions for years about what the right policy was on censoring. Like a lot of people, we’ve felt angry at these hateful people for a long time but we have followed the law and remained content neutral as a network. We could not remain neutral after these claims of secret support by Cloudflare.
Now, having made that decision, let me explain why it's so dangerous.

Daring Fireball: Why Cloudflare Terminated Daily Stormer
Matthew Prince, CEO of Cloudflare...
I’m a staunch First Amendment supporter. I believe these Nazi motherfuckers have a right to publish their garbage propaganda. But they don’t have a right to Cloudflare services. Prince’s thoughtful explanation makes clear that this was a last resort, and hopefully one-time exception, to their policy of not censoring sites over political content.
The internet really changes the way this works, though. In the print days, there was no equivalent of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. There are only a handful of very large companies that can defend against a DDoS attack, and Cloudflare is one of them. Now that Cloudflare has dropped them, their web site is unreachable.

America's Cult of Ignorance
More people are better educated than ever before, and knowledge is easier to come by. So why do we so often scorn those who plainly know more than we do?
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
—Isaac Asimov
In the early ’90s, a small group of “AIDS denialists,” including a University of California professor named Peter Duesberg, argued against virtually the entire medical establishment’s consensus that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was the cause of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Science thrives on such counterintuitive challenges, but there was no evidence for Duesberg’s beliefs, which turned out to be baseless. Once researchers found HIV, doctors and public health officials were able to save countless lives through measures aimed at preventing its transmission.

Asimov’s Cult Of Ignorance – William M. Briggs
Eons ago—in 1980—word-machine Isaac Asimov had an essay in Newsweek entitled “A Cult Of Ignorance.”
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain against anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by a false notion that democracy means “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
Asimov was wrong. On matters where people think, or know, they are ignorant, they scarcely or never weigh in with an opinion. Ask an ordinary citizen the best method to measure recalcitrant membrane proteins, or what other configurations of his fleet d’Aigalliers might have chosen and this citizen will tell you he hasn’t a clue and will happily leave the matter to experts.

Typewriters of the moment: Isaac Asimov’s astonishingly prolific career | Millard Fillmore's Bathtub
...The other night this image popped up on one of my Facebook feeds, from “the Other 98%”:
Painting of Isaac Asimov creating at a typewriter, an early IBM Selectric. Who did the painting?
I appreciate the sentiment in the quote. Asimov noted the Dunning-Kruger Effect, even if he didn’t have the advantage of Dunning and Kruger having named it yet, and he lamented the powerful undertone of anti-intellectualism that victims of the syndrome exhibit:
Anti- intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge. (Asimov in an essay for Newsweek: “A Cult of Ignorance,” January 21, 1980, p. 19)
It’s an arresting image, a heckuva a quote, and it would make a good poster. Plus, it’s an early IBM Selectric typewriter, marrying Asimov’s creativity with a great technological advancement in writing tools...

Isaac Asimov Laments the "Cult of Ignorance" in the United States: A Short, Scathing Essay from 1980 | Open Culture
In 1980, scientist and writer Isaac Asimov argued in an essay that “there is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been.” That year, the Republican Party stood at the dawn of the Reagan Revolution, which initiated a decades-long conservative groundswell that many pundits say may finally come to an end in November. GOP strategist Steve Schmidt (who has been regretful about choosing Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate in 2008) recently pointed to what he called “intellectual rot” as a primary culprit, and a cult-like devotion to irrationality among a certain segment of the electorate.
It’s a familiar contention. There have been critiques of American anti-intellectualism since the country’s founding, though whether or not that phenomenon has intensified, as Susan Jacoby alleged in The Age of American Unreason, may be a subject of debate. Not all of the unreason is partisan, as the anti-vaccination movement has shown. But “the strain of anti-intellectualism" writes Asimov, "has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’”

“A Cult of Ignorance” by Isaac Asimov, 1980
It’s hard to quarrel with that ancient justification of the free press: “America’s right to know.” It seems almost cruel to ask, ingenuously, ”America’s right to know what, please? Science? Mathematics? Economics? Foreign languages?”
None of those things, of course. In fact, one might well suppose that the popular feeling is that Americans are a lot better off without any of that tripe.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

In 1974, Paul Kossoff’s drug problem was spiralling out of control. He sold a number of guitars, including the iconic ‘stripped’ Les Paul used during Free’s Isle Of Wight Festival set. The guitar hasn’t seen the light of day since the mid-1990s, but G&B was recently granted a world-exclusive audience with one of the most mysterious Bursts of them all.

Reliquary: Specials, The - Free Live 12-Track CD (Sunday Times Edition)
The Specials
Free Live 12-Track CD
(The Sunday Times Edition) [2009]
Free Live 12-Track CD 'The Sunday Times
(30th Anniversary Tour Live)
Professional Live Recordings
Encoded: 256 Kbps MP3

The Specials free live 12-track CD, recorded during their 30th anniversary tour.
This Sunday Times Newspaper edition was free and not available in store.

Sellout or fan appreciation? Whatever you may think of the free CD available in today's Sunday Times of London newspaper (which is owned by Rupert Murdoch), the giveaway of The Specials triumphant live performance at the Brixton Academy in May is a novel way for the band to stay in the public eye and to help promote the remaining slate of summer festival shows and the second leg of its UK tour this fall. Its also a way for The Times, which is struggling like all newspapers are these days, to improve its sagging circulation. The CD giveaway is accompanied by a long article on the band with interviews with all key members.
The debate over the CD giveaway seems to fall along the same political fault lines as those surrounding the band's reunion in the first place. The legion of fans who are ecstatic over the reunion as evidenced on the band's fan forum are happy to have a memento of the occasion. Supporters of Jerry Dammers, who continues to remain on the outs with the band, have criticized the giveaway and the band's deal with Rupert Murdoch and the right-leaning Times as a political misfire for a band born as a reaction to the Thatcher regime in the UK.
The giveaway has garnered major publicity around the UK. Its importance to The Times is clear in the publicity it has spent on the promotion. Here is the TV commercial that is running in the UK to promote the giveaway.
Below is the track list for the CD giveaway including the descriptions for each track provided by The Times: -Original

The MP3 has been declared dead by its original creators | Consequence of Sound
The AAC audio format is officially the new gold standard
The internet is filled with people claiming things are dead, be it disco, rock and roll, or Britney Spears. When the creator of a particular thing makes that claim, however, it might be time to listen. Such is the case with the mighty MP3, which, due to numerous advancements in sound technology since its advent in the mid-90s, has been declared dead and buried by those who made it mainstream.
The “licensing program for certain MP3 related patents and software of Technicolor and Fraunhofer IIS has been terminated,” says the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, a division of the state-funded German research institution that pumped cash into the development of the MP3 in the late ’80s.

How to Safely Retrieve Files Off Failing HDD, SSD, or SD Cards Using Free Tools
All of the drives we are using to store our precious photos and videos are not 100% reliable. Everybody should know that by now (and back everything up) but even if you are doing it properly, there are times when a drive fails and you have nowhere else to get its contents except from the drive itself.
It happened to me recently. A 23GB SD card from a trip, almost full of precious shots, was corrupted when I inserted it into a cheap PC card reader.
As a result, both Windows PC and Mac were unable to read anything from the card and were prompting me to format it instead. After trying lots of commercial software designed specifically for recovering photos and files from SD cards, I was lost. None worked well. One of the tools was able to recover some photos, but only about 2% of what was there initially.
But I did not give up, and finally figured out how to do it properly. Surprisingly, it cost me nothing.

Then it happened. Paul introduced some special guests – on walked Robert Plant and Brian Johnson.
This was the cue for your TBL editor to defy his 60 years by making a Usain Bolt like sprint from row P to right down the front to catch this little bit of history.
Flipping heck or words to that effect!
That old Barrett Strong R and B stomper Money (That’s What I Want) as performed by Zep in Frankfurt in 1980 – I was lucky enough to be at that one too, was the chosen song for this unique history making three way vocal performance.
Brian sang with real conviction and as for Robert – he was absolutely loving it, hamming it up with those family poses (even a Knebworth like mic held aloft pose near the drum riser) checking into some Hoochie Coochie Man and Fortune Teller lyrics and blowing a mean harp. As Paul put it earlier ‘’What fun we are having’’.
The two guests left the stage after embracing with Paul happy and smiling. This was of course a significant sighting of Brian on stage as it was his first appearance  since his hearing problems had forced him to leave AC/DC.

“MP3 is dead” missed the real, much better story –
If you read the news, you may think the MP3 file format was recently officially “killed” somehow, and any remaining MP3 holdouts should all move to AAC now. These are all simple rewrites of Fraunhofer IIS’ announcement that they’re terminating the MP3 patent-licensing program.
Very few people got it right. The others missed what happened last month:
If the longest-running patent mentioned in the aforementioned references is taken as a measure, then the MP3 technology became patent-free in the United States on 16 April 2017 when U.S. Patent 6,009,399, held by and administered by Technicolor, expired.
MP3 is no less alive now than it was last month or will be next year — the last known MP3 patents have simply expired.

Daring Fireball: Long Live MP3
Marco Arment...
I wasn’t paying attention last week when Gizmodo, Engadget, and NPR got hoodwinked into writing “MP3 Is Dead” stories by an announcement from Fraunhofer pushing people to switch from the now-open MP3 to the still-patent-encumbered AAC.
On Twitter, Marco pointed to this 10-year-old piece from yours truly, describing the then-pipe-dream of Ogg Vorbis...
Now that the MP3 patents have expired, the situation is even better, because MP3 has been so thoroughly vetted, patent-wise. Idealism seldom wins out in these format battles. But time always wins.

Long Live the MP3 - Six Colors
Here’s the short version of this story: The MP3 audio format isn’t dead, but is about to experience a renaissance.
Here’s the slightly longer version: One of the companies who held patents covering some uses of the MP3 format has terminated its licensing program because its patents have run out. What this means is not that the MP3 format is about to evaporate, but rather, that lots of audio software that previously avoided encoding files into MP3 will now be free to support it without paying a tithe to Fraunhofer.
This is great news for everyone. I’ve spoken to several developers of audio and MP3-related software who have been watching the clock run out on MP3 patents so that they could release MP3 features into the world—both in brand-new apps as well as existing ones—without buying into Fraunhofer’s expensive licensing regime.

Developers of the MP3 Have Officially Killed It
MP3, the digital audio coding format, changed the way we listen to music and drove the adoption of countless new devices over the last couple of decades. And now, it’s dead. The developer of the format announced this week that it has officially terminated its licensing program.
The actual ownership history of the various patent rights involved in MP3 technology is complicated and messy. But the Fraunhofer Institute has claimed the right to license certain MP3 patents to software developers who want to “distribute and/or sell decoders and/or encoders” for it. The announcement that the company will end its licensing program was accompanied by a statement that reads in part...

No, the MP3 Is Not Dead | Kirkville
A lot of articles, such as this one on Gizmodo, are saying that the MP3 is dead, or “officially dead,” that the company that created the format has killed it off. This is not true, not by a long shot.
Many of these articles quote a brief statement from Fraunhofer, saying that:
Although there are more efficient audio codecs with advanced features available today, mp3 is still very popular amongst consumers.
But for some reason most of these articles neglect to quote the first sentence of the Fraunhofer statement:
On April 23, 2017, Technicolor’s mp3 licensing program for certain mp3 related patents and software of Technicolor and Fraunhofer IIS has been terminated.
The MP3 is far from dead; it’s just become free. So no one can earn money from licensing the format.

Today the Geordies are in a jovial mood as Newcastle United football team win the Championship having recently secured promotion to the Premier League. The legendary voice of Free Paul Rodgers couldn’t have picked a better day to be back in the toon, with fans and revellers having been celebrating in the local pubs and bars all day long; the after party moves early in the evening towards the neighbouring Newcastle City Hall.
The North East of England has always been a stronghold for Free, even their much celebrated live album featured recordings from the Locarno club a few miles down the road in nearby Sunderland.

Free is Never Free — MacSparky
The New York Times piece on Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is pretty damning. There’s a lot to consider in the article but one bit that stood out for me was this:
“They (Uber) spent much of their energy one-upping rivals like Lyft. Uber devoted teams to so-called competitive intelligence, purchasing data from an analytics service called Slice Intelligence. Using an email digest service it owns named, Slice collected its customers’ emailed Lyft receipts from their inboxes and sold the anonymized data to Uber.”

Wesaturate Lets You Download Free RAW Photos for Editing Practice
They say ‘practice makes perfect,’ and if you want to practice your photo editing, you need some RAW files. That’s where a new site/service called Wesaturate comes in. If you don’t have time to go out and shoot your own RAWs, or you want more variety, the site wants to provide a source of free RAW files for everyone.
Think of it like Unsplash for RAW files. Co-creators Kash Goudarzi and Gifton Okoronkwo tell us they came up with the idea because they realized just how important photo editing is, but as students, they rarely had time to go out and shoot their own practice images.
“We kept looking for a site where we could download free RAW photos and just edit and learn to edit from home,” Kash tells PetaPixel. “When we couldn’t find anything active, good looking, and simple, we decided to create Wesaturate.”

Dear TextWrangler customer:
We are writing to let you know what's ahead for TextWrangler and how it will eventually affect you. As you know, TextWrangler and BBEdit are both brought to you by Bare Bones Software (that's us!).
What you may not know is that last July, we released BBEdit 11.6. You can use this version unlicensed, forever, for free. Without a license, BBEdit now includes all of the features that TextWrangler offers, plus quite a few others. That's right. You no longer have to pick between them.
If this sounds like TextWrangler will eventually be sunsetted, you're right; it will. While the next version of macOS hasn't even been announced yet, when it ships, TextWrangler won't be updated for it—but BBEdit will. You could keep using TextWrangler, but why?

The Reggae Review: Ziggy Marley Goes Wild and Free!
A TuneCore Artist since early 2006, Ziggy Marley is back with a new single, Africa Land, in honor of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. I had the chance to chat with him about the new release that is close to his heart, and his thoughts on how focusing on single releases and offering free downloads is helping him get his music, and message, out to more listeners than ever.
Africa Land, which features brother Stephen Marley and Beninoise singer-songwriter Angélique Kidjo, is a celebration, meant to promote the idea of African unity, as well as global unity, during this time when "all eyes are on Africa." Marley drew from many different sources to create the sound and vibe of Africa Land. His concept was to bring together the sounds and groove of African reggae and dancehall beats to create something that could be danced to. This was a collaboration in cultures, styles, and artists, and in this way, the bones of the song itself symbolize unity as much as the meaning that comes through in the lyrics.
According to Marley, Africa Land went through many phases, or as he calls them, "growing pains," in its creation. "It changed so much from the first idea to how it ended up," he told me. One of the most notable changes was the tempo; it started out as a very slow song and became much faster as the development went on. Marley explained that for him the creation process is all about experimenting, seeing what goes and what doesn’t, and learning what new form the music can take.

Divided federal appeals court rules you have the right to film the police | Ars Technica
Filming cops, 2-1 court rules, ensures that they "are not abusing their power."
A divided federal appeals court is ruling for the First Amendment, saying the public has a right to film the police. But the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals, in upholding the bulk of a lower court's decision against an activist who was conducting what he called a "First Amendment audit" outside a Texas police station, noted that this right is not absolute and is not applicable everywhere.
The facts of the dispute are simple. Phillip Turner was 25 in September 2015 when he decided to go outside the Fort Worth police department to test officers' knowledge of the right to film the police. While filming, he was arrested for failing to identify himself to the police. Officers handcuffed and briefly held Turner before releasing him without charges. Turner sued, alleging violations of his Fourth Amendment right against unlawful arrest and detention and his First Amendment right of speech.

How to Stay Safe on Public Wi-Fi
If you take a trip today, you’re bound to come across more free public wi-fi spots than ever before. They can be great for getting work done, managing your social media empire, and generally staying connected—but these public networks can also be a major security risk. Here’s what you need to know about using free public wi-fi and how you can keep yourself safe.
Read the terms and conditions carefully
In your eagerness to get an internet connection, it can be tempting to click through whatever welcome screens appear, but you should be very careful to check what you’re signing up for. A big chunk of wi-fi networks are set up in public places by marketing firms who are willing to give you some bandwidth in return for an email address and phone number, for example.

American Exceptionalism: The Truth About Immigrants. | John Hope Bryant | Pulse | LinkedIn
America is not a country, she is an idea. And we can make her anything we want.
America was built on a foundation of ideas, and not mere geography. One idea in particular: the idea called freedom.
People flocked to America in the 20th century -- from all over the world -- fleeing repression, oppression, regression and totalitarian dictators. They arrived throughout the 20th Century through what we now refer to as Ellis Island, in New York. They arrived by the multitudes; with little to no money, sketchy documentation, emotional stories, and big dreams. They came from around the world, but mostly from Western and Eastern Europe. These were the immigrants of 20th Century America.

Published on Jan 17, 2013
This video was made as a sort of gift to my father who is a huge Free / Paul Kossoff fan.
I have not captured any footage nor do i own any of it. I have merely edited various footage off the web and created a documentary following that of the David Kossoff documentary but with more music.
I do not own or have nor will make any money off this video. As stated all of the footage was taken off the internet. If you find part or all of your content please try to see it as praise and not plagiarism.
LUCY PILLER for two of the Paul Photos are from her collection of Paul's Archives.
I hope you enjoy this video as it takes a slightly different angle to the David Kossoff documentary.
This is only my 3rd video i have ever edited. Edit time 17 hours.

The official Tor browser for iOS is free to use | Ars Technica
Onion Browser developer Mike Tigas tells Ars he gave up $25,000 in sales a year.
When Mike Tigas first created the Onion Browser app for iOS in 2012, he never expected it to become popular. He was working as a newsroom Web developer at The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Washington, at the time, and wanted a Tor browser app for himself and his colleagues. Expecting little interest, he then put Onion Browser on the Apple App Store at just $0.99/£0.69, the lowest non-zero price that Apple allows.
Fast forward to 2016, and Tigas found himself living in New York City, working as a developer and investigative journalist at ProPublica, while earning upwards of $2,000 a month from the app—and worrying that charging for it was keeping anonymous browsing out of the hands of people who needed it.
