1266 - It's not the porn, it's you
Friday, July 9, 2010

If you find that your employees are goofing off watching porn at work instead of working, does it make logical sense that you should get rid of the porn, or the employee? Exactly. Of course, the government doesn't see it that way, but they're the ones who encoded their like, 900-word mission statement into the U.S. CyberCommand shield. Sigh.

BZ: Netflix quality doesn’t mean quantity


I was talking with two of my friends (who are online gamers) about the change in WoW policy. They actually told me about the article you brought up on episode 1265 and then also showed me this article:

Basically a Blizzard employee (Micah Whipple) but out his full name to try and calm people down by saying it’s not that big of a deal. buuuuut the author of this article totally contradicted that by finding out all of Micah’s personal information including address, age and family members’ names. I definitely see Molly’s point of saying this could actually help stop the harassment, but there are enough people on the internet who aren’t socially adjusted (and I feel like WoW has a reputation for having a large number of them) that would take advantage of having access to full names. I’ve never been interested in playing WoW but this definitely turns me away, and by the sounds of it many other players – even current ones.

Love the show!



There is precedent for the placement of code on “”public”" symbols and challenging the code breakers to decrypt it. There is a sculpture at CIA headquarters in Virginia where the final code still is resisting their best attempts at decoding the message.
