Internet Hacker story

"Settling into his chair and resting his fingers on his keyboard like a concert pianist, Butler began his attack."

—Kevin Poulsen in One Hacker's Audacious Plan to Rule the Black Market in Stolen Credit Cards at Wired.

This reads like a novel.

Internet Copyright Alex Gâlmeanu

Photographer Alex Gâlmeanu sees his photo of actor Gheorghe Dinică used in over 30 web sites in breach of his copyright. I wonder how this kind of wide spread unprofessionalism is this possible.

Death of print?

No, death of ethics.

Internet Antipixel Nostalgia

Ages ago, at the dawn of blogging (circa 2005), Antipixel was on my daily reading list. Its intro still rings a bell:

Hello. This is Jeremy Hedley's weblog coming to you sort of live from Tokyo, Japan. Gory details are available, as is my public key.

"Sort of live from Tokyo, Japan"—how cool is that! The pictures were awesome, the stories exotic and the design a benchmark at the time.

Internet Tr.im Billed For The Free Lunch

Tr.im is now in the process of discontinuing service, effective immediately: "There is no way for us to monetize URL shortening -- users won't pay for it."

"No business we approached wanted to purchase tr.im for even a minor amount."

Freeconomics, anyone?

Internet Twitter tribes

"With the usual exceptions, people on Twitter tend to fall into two main camps. There are responders, who use Twitter as a channel to interact heavily with other users, and broadcasters, who use it primarily as a micro-blogging platform.

These groups don’t necessarily get along. Responders will tell you that broadcasters are condescending talking heads who think they’re too good for the community. Broadcasters wish responders would take their nonsensical patter to a chat room, where they could natter on in privacy. Everyone agrees that members of the other group are total jackasses who don’t know how to use Twitter."

From Margaret Mason’s Twitter Etiquette Article.

It's a complicated world out there, folks!

Internet Twitter, second

Twitter, a new tryout.

A new Twitter tryout because "once doesn't count".

Not much enthusiasm though, I have to say. First test ended like this.

We'll see.

Internet Sitemeter reverts to previous version

As all hell broke loose after launch, and Sitemeter immediately rolled back to their old design. Good!

But from their apology though — "we have pushed our new site live prematurely" and "we apologize for the botched rollout" — it's easy to tell: they still don't get it.

It's not the rollout (it was painless) or performance (come on!). It's about the fact that the new site is terribly, terribly designed.

Internet Sitemeter redesigned, killed

The newly redesigned Sitemeter is up and running. Yay! The legendary efficient simplicity (and parser friendliness) was murdered and replaced with a suffocating, inscrutable "polished" look. Truly unusable.

Chapter closed. Pity.

LATER EDIT Well, maybe the chapter is not over just yet. Interesting.

So many blogs are crap that the two substantives—blog and crap—will soon be synonymous. But every once in a while you find a post so honest-to-goodness and beautiful that it single-handedly exonerates the whole damn category.
