  • Moth Wing Avatars Swarm In Memory of Osprey Therian
    About three dozen avatars gathered today in Bodega sim to honor the memory of long-time Second Life resident Osprey Therian. Ms. Therian's real-life typist Vivian Kendall passed away December 9th after battling a number of health issues.  Her impact on the Second Life community - particularly older players - was significant, and she clearly planned [...]
  • Refunds For Banned Second Life Players!! SHOCK!!!
    Ban hammer rebounds, hits Linden Lab's wallet One ex-player hopes for $60,000 USD refund as class action settlement mandates payments to exiles Over the last several days, players banned from the Second Life virtual world have begun receiving notification of a proposed class action settlement (full text here) which will pay the involuntary exiles for [...]
  • NSA’s Keith Alexander Loses YouTube War
    1.6% approval rating for Alexander's vision of Cybersecurity Why does everyone hate my video? Strategic blunder is probably the best description of the last week's decision to publish Jessica Tozer's 30 minute interview with General Keith Alexander on YouTube. What were they thinking? After the strangely-edited video was placed in the free-fire zone of open public [...]
  • Bruce Schneier’s Bat Signal Alarms Internet Engineers
    Pixeleen Mistral interviews Mark McCahill to calm Herald technical staff I realized something was terribly wrong when The Herald's electronic press fell *out of sync* with the soothing retro-euro-disco thump of Daft Punk's Random Access Memories playing in the editorial offices. Normally the technical staff are careful to avoid harshing the mellow of the writers, [...]
  • Op/Ed: Barrett Brown Prosecutor Inadvertently Indicts Criminal Justice System

    by Biff Baker, Prosecutors Gone Wild! (tm) Desk

    In a recent article here in the Herald, Urizenus Sklar argued that the US Attorney in the Barrett Brown case was attempting to smear Barrett by listing a whole number of allegedly bad attributes of Barrett and then publishing them in a public court document.  

    I think Uri missed the bigger picture here. Not that Uri is wrong.  But Uri missed the fact that larded into the US Attorney's comments is a tacit indictment of the entire US criminal justice system.  

    The US Attorney's screed against Barrett looked like this:

    Perhaps without realizing the prejudicial effects on brown the media repeatedly has publicized potentially inadmissible and prejudicial information such as Brown's ... anarchist ideology... troubled childhood and alternative schooling, declaration that he is an atheist, use and abuse of ecstasy, acid, heroin, and marijuana, lack of steady employment, claimed diagnoses of ADHD and depression, associates descriptions of Brown as a junkie, name fag, moral fag, court jester...


    Now, the question is this:  Why on God's Green Earth should it be impossible, or even difficult, for someone who is an atheist, or someone who is depressed, or someone who has ADHD or someone who lacks steady employment, or someone who has used drugs to get a fair trial in this country?

    You see the deep point here is that implicit in the US Attorney's statement is the admission that for people who are even just a tiny bit outside of the mainstream, the justice system can not be counted on to be fair to them.  Any perceived flaw which sets you outside of a Norman Rockwell ideal is enough to ensure that the justice system, if you find your way into it, will grind you to pieces.  Tiny pieces.

    If you are depressed, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    If you use marijuana, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    If you had alternative schooling or raised by alternative parenting, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    If you are a student of, or influenced by, anarchist writings, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    If you were once a heroine addict, now on Suboxone, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    If you had a troubled childhood, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    If you lack steady employment, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    If you are a moral fag (that is, if you are ethically motivated hacker), you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you.

    In short, if you are remotely alternative and outside of the power structure, you cannot count on the justice system to be fair to you. 

    That you US Attorney, for admitting this.  Now, when do we begin to fix the problem?


     

  • Why Thank You Federal Prosecutor, that Was Soooo Thoughtful!

    While everyone seems to be down on the federal prosecutor who is trying to ring up Barrett Brown for 105 years for sharing a link to a Pirate Bay data dump, I wish to be a contrarian here. I say, hey, the prosecutor actually has Barrett's best interests at heart. I know this because she said so in making her case for a media gag order on Mr. Brown. You see, the gag order is *not* to protect the prosecution from media scrutiny of its actions in this case. Au contraire! You see, really, they want the gag order to protect Barrett from the bad things that people might say and think about him. As the prosecutor says:

    Perhaps without realizing the prejudicial effects on brown the media repeatedly has publicized potentially inadmissible and prejudicial information such as Brown's ... anarchist ideology... troubled childhood and alternative schooling, declaration that he is an atheist, use and abuse of ecstasy, acid, heroin, and marijuana, lack of steady employment, claimed diagnoses of ADHD and depression, associates descriptions of Brown as a junkie, name fag, moral fag, court jester..."

    And not only was the prosecutor thoughtful enough to think of all the possible bad things one might say about Barrett, but she took the trouble to write them down so we could have them. And then she put them in a court document. And published it. And then a gag order was placed on Barrett and his defense team. Just so, you know, they wouldn't damage his reputation by responding to these claims.

    gagorder
    prosecutor's gag order: list bad things that might be said, then muzzle the target

    Of course the ultimate concern is that all that chatter out there would make it impossible to impanel an impartial jury. Because people in the Dallas region are following this case in sooo religiously (being rabid readers of The Nation and all). And if there are two thing a Texan cannot abide it's moralfags and namefags! Gosh, I'm so happy I live in a country where politicians appoint kind, thoughtful prosecutors that have everyone's best interests at heart. Because, you know, if you are sending someone to jail for 105 years you wouldn't want people to think they are - SHOCK! - an atheist or something.

    Captured on a YouTube video saying he had been flailing about for an hour trying to get his voice working for a live interview in Second Life, company founder Philip Rosedale confessed to having endured a "crazy painful" struggle with the declining virtual world platform.

  • FBI Summer Reading List!
    Barrett
    Barrett Brown

    Yes, summer is winding down, but it isn't too late to cram in some late late summer reading.  And who better to suggest good solid reading, but the FBI.  Dell Cameron, writing in the Daily Dot, has the goods.  He gives us the 20 online publications concerning Barrett Brown that the prosecution considers "must read."  Or is that "don't read".  Hmm these lists are so confusing...

    Here is how Mr. Cameron lays it down.

    I attended the gag order hearing on September 4 and listened as the U.S. government spoke candidly about the journalists who've covered Barrett's case. Twenty articles were admitted into evidence from various writers and websites. Much to my surprise, the U.S. government has great taste in journalism. I've collected the online articles it selected as evidence against Barrett Brown for your reading pleasure.

    You want to know who made the list, don't you?  Well to see it you just gotta click through! [link]

    Spoiler though, some of the names will be familiar to Herald readers!

  • False Flags and Forged E-mails
     by Urizenus Sklar and Sara Jafary (Associate Editor, Herald Psyops Desk) Over the past several years, Hacktivists like the members of Anonymous and leakers like Chelsea Manning, with the assistance of publishers like WikiLeaks, have exposed gigabytes of secrets of the American empire. The consequences have been far-reaching, and by some accounts the revelations helped [...]
  • The Day the Barrett Brown Hotline Went Dead
    Barrett
    Barrett Brown

    It seems like just today that I published a long article explaining the strange case of Barrett Brown and how a beloved Second Life alumnus was looking at 105 years in prison for sharing a link to an online document dump. Come to think of it, it *was* today! And this afternoon, I received the news that a gag order has been issued for Barrett Brown and his defense team. A gag order? Let's reflect on that.

    The prosecution, to make the case for a gag order, offered up a number of articles that had been published in places like the New York Times, The Nation, The Huffington Post, etc - seven by that mild mannered tweed wearing lovable professor Ludlow! The view of the prosecution was that given all the people in Texas that read The Nation and the annual NYT articles on Barrett Brown it just would not be possible to find a neutral jury pool. Because you know, all people in Texas do is read The Nation.

    Let's put this in even more perspective. This is the judicial system that convinced itself that there was not too much publicity for OJ, or for Jodi Arias, or for really any trial that shows up on Nancy Grace. But OMG someone publishes a story in The Nation and the scales of justice are out of balance. You just can't find a neutral jury anymore.

    Allow me to opine:  Barrett Brown was exercising his constitutional right to *defend* himself against charges for which he has not been convicted. And, by the way, these are charges which he believes, as do I, that are not just false, but absurdly false. Ditto for the lawyers. If they can't defend their client in public against false charges then the public will be ignorant of the specifics of the trial and will not be able to judge whether justice is being served or whether it is being miscarried. Of course that is probably the point - if justice was being served there would be no point in a gag order; there would be no reason to fear open discussion of the specifics of the case.

    And so, as the Herald yacht powers its way towards Long Island New York, I stare at the now dormant Barrett Brown hotline wondering: Is this how the American system of justice finally collapses into a system for oppression and tyranny? Not with a bang or even a whimper, but just a dial tone?

Gotham: City of Heroes

Written by Lavinia Carver   
domingo, 31 agosto 2008

Just randomly browsing round the metaverse can actually prove useful. I found that out a little while ago, when I stumbled upon Gotham. I had first seen Gotham when it was mid-construction, so it didn’t look too good. It also took forever to build, so I personally thought it would take FOREVER to open.

Brain-computer interface for Second Life

Written by Massimo   
martes, 01 mayo 2007
Mind Second Life

While recent developments in brain-computer interface (BCI) technology have given humans the power to mentally control computers, nobody has used the technology in conjunction with the Second Life online virtual world — until now.

A research team led by professor Jun’ichi Ushiba of the Keio University Biomedical Engineering Laboratory has developed a BCI system that lets the user walk an avatar through the streets of Second Life while relying solely on the power of thought. To control the avatar on screen, the user simply thinks about moving various body parts — the avatar walks forward when the user thinks about moving his/her own feet, and it turns right and left when the user imagines moving his/her right and left arms.
