Well it's been almost 3 months since we won the Social Bots competition (read about it here in my previous blog post) - since then we've been referenced several times in the media, so i thought i'd take the opportunity to link to the articles written.
Also... while i'm writing a blog post...
What the heck New Zealand? I'm seriously disheartened right now that the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill has been passed - if you're not from New Zealand, check this article out to better understand why so many are up in arms about it:
There are many bad reasons why this shouldn't have happened (including the Richard Stallman debate of Copyright vs Community in the age of computer networks) - but perhaps the reason that I object to the most is not the fact that people who infringe copyright are punished (this is, i think another kettle of fish entirely) but that this law will give the power to disconnect internet users without sufficient proof of an offense - the word of a copyright/distributer seems to be sufficient enough - ever heard of innocent until proven guilty?
Just a quick update - I saw this video and had to post it because it's great!
