So why don't you, like fucking everyone since the night of times, purpose a paid subscription?
You know what internet is like? A free to play. First to make it extremly accessible, while taking money from the customer who don't even know they's one. It's a shit economical system, based on ignorance.
People still think that google, facebook is free. Just ask anyone how they win billions and are at the top of tech industry, most people will not even be able to answer (or something vague like "ads?").

We need to stop with this. "If it's free, then you're the product."
All I see is that a lot of people actually started their blog for fun, to share with people, then they discovered that they could make a shit tone of money on it, so greed came on, and they try to only live on that. That's not how reality works. You can't live only on your shit little blog, or on a little youtube video. Just look at how newspaper use to work in the past. It's the same thing. It's not because I share some good inside with peoples that I'm gonna create an entire newpaper on this idea, and only live on that.
I need something serious. A team of writers, a shit tone of work, talent. Not just random internet luck of fame.

That's the root of the problem. Too easy for random people to get too much money. Just look who're at the top of youtube, or other medias. That's ridiculous. It's certainly, certainly not a meritocracy. Even the top youtuber agree with that, that they're were they are with only luck, and that people with less success have more talent than them.
Thanks retarded internet economical model.

I don't think it's an internet issue, I think it's an human issues. Nikola Tesla, Kurt Godel and many others, died poor and fucked, for example, before the internet existed. The people that really constructed computing, like Konrad Zuze, never appear on mainstream, just the fancy Steve Jobs that did nothing of good.
It's how our primitive thinking always end up with the same patterns. People don't like to extend their thoughts, therefore, shit content will be produced to keep the circus running.
People like to think how things "might look like" and not how it really is, therefore they numb themselves with myths.

Internet is a human construct, so it's pretty normal that it was designed with ideology in mind. That's why it's the support of the worste surveillance technology ever. That's why it's so hard to access privacy, because it was made to be public in the first place.

Enemy At the Gateways: A Game Theoretic Approach to Proxy Distribution Anonymous 09/14/2017 (Thu) 21:20:32 [Preview] No. 11085 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A core technique used by popular proxy-based circumvention systems like Tor, Psiphon, and Lantern is to secretly share the IP addresses of circumvention proxies with the censored clients for them to be able to use such systems. For instance, such secretly shared proxies are known as bridges in Tor. However, a key challenge to this mechanism is the insider attack problem: censoring agents can impersonate as benign censored clients in order to obtain (and then block) such secretly shared circumvention proxies.
In this paper, we perform a fundamental study on the problem of insider attack on proxy-based circumvention systems. We model the proxy distribution problem using game theory, based on which we derive the optimal strategies of the parties involved, i.e., the censors and circumvention system operators.
That is, we derive the optimal proxy distribution mechanism of a circumvention system like Tor, against the censorship adversary who also takes his optimal censorship strategies.
This is unlike previous works that design ad hoc mechanisms for proxy distribution, against non-optimal censors.
We perform extensive simulations to evaluate our optimal proxy assignment algorithm under various adversarial and network settings. Comparing with the state-of-the-art prior work, we show that our optimal proxy assignment algorithm has superior performance, i.e., better resistance to censorship even against the strongest censorship adversary who takes her optimal actions. We conclude with lessons and recommendation for the design of proxy-based circumvention systems.

Then, buy a pre-2001 phone. If you need to use other "modern" communication protocols, use a laptop.
That's (basically) the only acceptable privacy-oriented approach to this. You can have a modern smartphone, but that would be a change in paradigm on how you think about privacy, since smartphone can be considered a survailance device.

Yes. But industry in general should change to other wireless standard, such as DASH7, that is open source and, according to wikipedia, it's "small footprint, low power, long range, and low cost [... than] WiFi or Bluetooth".
What I fear is that industry, instead of switching to something better, simply remove bluetooth, rendering projects like Briar or meshnet-like software, useless.

Had to move my desk to the other side of the room and now everything feels cramped, awkward and unergonomic as fuck and my autism is flaring up.

How long will it take me to relearn how to comfortably use my computer?

It depends on so many variables, probably no more than 3 months. If you really have some degree of autism or asperger, I suggest you reduce the maximum cognitive effort you can, so you can adapt faster. For example, remove other objects from the desk, put the chair against a wall (so you don't feel as someone is watching you).
You don't just adapt to, but also, in this case, nurture the experience around you. So, besides removing things you don't need, try to maintain the same things from before the change and then gradually change (again), until you adapt to it. It works similarly as "cold turkey" vs "gradual removal" on drugs.
You can also use behaviorism: every time something bothers you, and you can't change it, give some punitive measure to yourself. Read more on behaviorism and create your own protocol.
You can also use hormesis and spaced repetition: every time you feel unconfortable, give it a break, go drink some green tea, look at the trees, then you go back.

I'm not going to watch the video, but if it's referring to 23-and-me or Ancestry.com and those other DNA testing services, no. Their privacy protections are so flimsy that they're practically nonexistent.

In addition, like the recent Equifax breach reminds us (140 million people's sensitive personal financial info stolen), sensitive data is not safe in the hands of centralized third parties. These big DNA testing providers will be breached, and the DNA information of millions of people will be leaked.

I'm waiting for something like the Bento Lab to become available and reasonably affordable.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339005690/bento-lab-a-dna-laboratory-for-everybody
https://www.bento.bio/

By reasonably affordable, I mean in the $500 range. That's not pocket change to me, but I think I know enough people who would be interested in having their DNA tested but also don't trust the big services that I could get them to help subsidize a kit.

I think home biohacking is going to be producing some weird and wild stuff in the next 20 or 30 years, including some pathogens of interest to bioterrorists.

We're in for a wild ride.



Learning the PE Header, Malware Detection with Minimal Domain Knowledge Anonymous 09/06/2017 (Wed) 09:26:44 [Preview] No. 11029 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Many efforts have been made to use various forms of domain knowledge in malware detection. Currently there exist two common approaches to malware detection without domain knowledge, namely byte n-grams and strings. In this work we explore the feasibility of applying neural networks to malware detection and feature learning. We do this by restricting ourselves to a minimal amount of domain knowledge in order to extract a portion of the Portable Executable (PE) header. By doing this we show that neural networks can learn from raw bytes without explicit feature construction, and perform even better than a domain knowledge approach that parses the PE header into explicit features.

An interesting approach to malware detection. For the next McAfee. Hey, when you're down in Guatemala in your jungle mansion, banging supple Latina teenagers, remember me, ok?

Perhaps you don't understand the forums' purpose. If you want to discuss wikipedia articles, there are better places that permit you to pretend to be doing something. HN is one such place that might suit you better.

PDF is interesting and adds more evidence to coming age of ML. Fortunately (or unfortunately if you refuse to learn) ML you'll be left behind as a metasploit monkey and etc., if you work in another field. No doubt some of the more wealthy AVs are already testing basic ML instead of regular hashes to check for warez. It seems like a much more efficient process than sandboxing a suspected snippet and running a sim.

buzz buzz buzzword. why do we care about some minor innovations to goy tech? the single one justification for antivirus to exist is that it purges outbreaks on machines owned by the goy who run outdated software and open untrusted executables (these people will have already have had their info stolen by the time the antivirus is updated to have a signature for such malware). it does not offer any security or any useful attribute to anyone who knows what they're doing. in particular, using NN to "detect malware" is just another heuristic full of false positives and will be once again, trivial to bypass.
