The Digital Economy Act 2010

What is the Digital Economy Act?

The Digital Economy Act is a newly passed piece of British legislation that is meant to protect copyright online and increase regulation and control of the way people use the Internet.

What can you do about this?

  • Ask your candidates whether they oppose the Act. If your MP didn't bother to vote, ask why. Given the important implications this legislation has, it's vital that politicians make their position on the issue clear. E-mail your candidates directly using this tool: http://bit.ly/emailyourcandidates

  • Inform your friends about the implications of the Act and the way it threats civil liberties and the future of Internet use.

  • Join the Open Rights Group's Action e-mail list. This will keep you informed on further developments and give practical advice on how you can protest against the Digital Economy Act: http://www.openrightsgroup.org/sign-up-against-disconnection
How did it happen?
  • The entertainment industry is refusing to adapt to new models, clinging to obsolete 20th Century thinking.
  • The Bill was drafted by unelected officials after lobbying from the entertainment industry.
  • It was passed in a hurry during the Parliamentary "wash up" process without full scrutiny.
Why should you be worried?
  • Websites will be blocked for alleged copyright infringement.
  • Families accused of sharing copyrighted files will be disconnected without trial. They will have to pay to appeal.
  • Even if you don't live in the UK, it sets a worrying precedent for other countries to follow suit.
Disconnection or "technical measures" like bandwidth throttling will kick in if file sharing does not drop by an incredible 70%. There are no alternative punishments to disconnection, no matter what the damage it will cause, and there is no statutory limit on the length of these disconnections, called, in the weasel words of the Act, "temporary account suspension".
Despite thousands of letters of concern and a petition with over 35,000 signatures of protest, the Bill was rushed through in the final days of parliament during the "wash up process" - it was not given the full scrutiny that it deserved.
This is a piece of legislation that gives potentially unlimited power to unelected officials, and assumes guilt on the part of those accused of copyright infringement. We can expect the industry lobbies to be out in force to roll back our human right to freedom of expression in the name of copyright very, very soon.
What's happening now?
Now that the Bill has been passed and the election is underway, candidates from all the main parties are keen to distance themselves from it. They admit that there are serious concerns and that the Bill did not receive the scrutiny and debate it deserves.

What is CUDA?

email post
Reactions: 



CUDA (an acronym for Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel computing architecture developed by NVIDIA. CUDA lets programmers utilize a dedicated driver written using C language subroutines to offload data processing to the graphics processing hardware found on Nvidia's latemodel GeForce graphics hardware. The software lets programmers use the cards to process data other than just graphics, without having to learn OpenGL or how to talk with the card specifically. Since CUDA tools first emerged in late 2006, Nvidia's seen them used in everything from consumer software to industrial products, and the applications are limitless.

Scientist says he’s first human with a computer virus - Blogs - Yahoo! Canada Tech

"Scientist says he’s first human with a computer virus"
By Christopher Null

Let the hysteria begin: Computer viruses have apparently made the leap from PC to person, BBC News reports.

Mind you, this was all intentional. British scientist Mark Gasson of the University of Reading introduced a computer virus into an RFID chip (similar to the chips implanted in pets to identify them if they go missing) and then implanted the infected chip into his own hand.

In its uninfected state, Gasson's chip lets him pass through secured doorways and turn on his cell phone, so it has practical real-world capabilities.

An infected chip could pass malicious code on to chip scanners as, say, the bearer passes through a security door. The virus could then spread to other systems in the network, depending on the complexity and cleverness of its programming.

Right now this is just a proof of concept, but it’s a sobering one in a world where 'touchless' networking systems like RFID are becoming more and more commonplace, while the security of these systems has been largely ignored.

Recently issued passports, which include an RFID chip now by default, have already been subject to extensive hacking attempts — and numerous hacking successes. Some people even suggest whacking your passport with a hammer to disable the RFID chip inside. (We don't endorse this, however.)

What happens when you have an actual RFID implant? BBC News notes that these chips are becoming popular receptacles for medical information, so if a person is unconscious, medical responders can still determine if someone has a critical allergy or a rare condition that a hospital might need to be aware of. What happens if a virus scrambles or even reverses this information?

The issue of viruses moving from computer to human may not be the nightmare that Hollywood makes it out to be — but the threat is becoming more real than we might like to believe.
