Another interesting documentary on the back of We Are Legion. I like the bit where they put a Google sticker on a car and just drive around doing whatever they want!
I attended a London Hacker News talk from the creators of Foldable.me which is a really simple avatar creation tool where users can create a characterised version of themselves (or friend) and then have it delivered. The end product actually reminds me of the Danbo dolls but I was impressed that it came out of a Mint Digital hackathon and then sought funding via Kickstarter
A nice version for mapping sentiment of the presidential election, really clean and simple. It appears the process has not removed the reverse meanings yet (such as “XXX is the shit”) which currently count as a negative, but it is still a nice idea.
Im wondering if anyone is interested in pulling together a team (or teams) for AngelHack London on the 10th and 11th of November. No big idea yet so I was thinking on they day we could just pick a problem to solve from the Internet Wishlist and try to solve it within the 24 hours. Any takers or other suggestions?
Its concerning to read that Mozilla’s FireFox latest update has to be pulled due to security/privacy issues as reported on the BBC. It seems the browser allowed sites to see the users entire browser history. I believe people are too quick to deploy new product without extensive testing on something as important as a browser which is the transport system of the internet. Also the users who have upgraded should start thinking twice about adopting so quickly.
