Some newsie type things

There are times where I find myself spamming facebook with links to stories I find interesting, funny, abhorent etc becuase I like to share things around now and then. I've been doing this for as long as I can remember. It just struck me though, why fill up my friend's feeds with endless links when I can just as easily fire them all off in one place. Like a shotbun blast instead of single bullets from a 9MM. I suppose i've been inspired by the likes of Phillip DeFranco and Sourcefed.

Where as their productions are professional and produced with awesomeness, this little thing here will just be links and or videos with sporadic comments. I might even just share what I find because of those two youtube channels. Well, sharing is caring as they say and all credit will ofcourse go to those who originaly created such things.


This story from the BBC website caught my eye because of how unfair it seems to be to do the right thing. Man tries to download music. Downloads kiddie porn without his knowledge. Reports incident to police. Loses right to be around his own Daughter. Pretty fucked up. Click here for the full story.

Next up, again from the BBC, is the story of members of Lulzsec, the so called "Hacktivist" group who have recently been arrested in connection with a serious of cyber crimes. One of the men, Donal, was a student at the same University I go to. Go, College!
I'm have my theories on the sudden rise and subsequent fall of Lulzsec and the recent revelation that their former leader, "Sabu", had turned and was working with the FBI for the last few months really doesnt surprise me at all. It begs the question, if Sabu was working for the FBI, and Lulzsec was involved in attacking high profile targets such as Visa, Sony, the CIA etc, were these attacks orchestrated or influenced by the FBI themselves?

That's about it for now. I suppose I should've done this kind of thing sooner, and now I'm fighting the urge to back-date all the things but I wont. I link to way too many things on facebook. I'm sorta getting sick and tired of that damned thing and who knows, I may get rid of it one day and focus soley on this bloggity as a means to divulge my chaotic brain droppings.
