Ich habe nur gezeigt, dass es die Bombe gibt über Psychometriken mit Hilfe von Big Data, den Big Five Persönlichkeitsdimensionen, das Ocean-Modell, und was die Strategic Communications Laboratories (SCL) und Cambridge Analytica mit Politmarketing, Microtargeting, Breitbart News und dem Brexit und Trump zu tun haben.
Fake News war gestern, jetzt ist Dark Posts.

Meanwhile you should have heard about the Lenovo hardware that had Superfish installed, an adware injecting software that uses an SSL hijacker SDK made by Komodia. If not then duck it.
I'd classify that as a Maximum Credible Accident (MCA) which was only possible due to greed, stupidity and idiocy.
- Greed – Lenovo was greedy enough to deploy Superfish on its hardware, probably just for a few bugs revenue more per machine.
- Stupidity – Superfish was stupid enough to use the Komodia SSL hijacker, just to be able to inject ads into https connections. Hopefully without knowing what they were doing, else it would had been double stupid stupidity. However, and of course they are greedy as well, because all ad sellers are.
- Idiocy – Komodia was idiots enough to implement an SSL hijacker SDK and embed a root CA certificate in the software using it and super idiocy chose "komodia" as all private keys' password, making the certificate available to anyone and grandpa.
Now, as if that wasn't enough, according to Forbes the
loser behind Komodia
was once a programmer in Israel’s IDF’s Intelligence Core. Really? I'm not impressed.
Or wait, here's room for conspiracy theories! Let Superfish be a venture capital startup, financed by Israelis, which maybe is not that far fetched. What if the whole concept just serves the idea to spread an SSL hijacker to be able to intercept HTTPS connections and inject man-in-the-middle attacks? Sounds like a good plan? Yeah, well done, goal achieved, it couldn't be better ;-)
Superfish may have appeared on these models:Hopefully this incident will teach Lenovo a lesson to not fiddle around with the customer too much..

Ich bin Extremist!
XKeyscore-Quellcode: Tor-Nutzer werden von der NSA als Extremisten markiert und überwacht
Dabei sollte ich das besser gar nicht benutzen, denn alleine dadurch mache ich mich schon zum Freiwild. Eigen-Tor: Gefahren der Tor-Nutzung im Alltag
William Binney heute in der Anhörung im NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss: Die Vollüberwachung der Gesellschaft ist die größte Bedrohung der Demokratie seit dem amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg.
Ups, da hab ich doch glatt auf netzpolitik.org verlinkt, jetzt bin ich Doppel-Extremist.
Eigentlich ja Dreifach-Extremist, denn Mails verschlüssel ich schon seit Jahren (falls denn jemand mitmacht) mit GnuPG.
Damit ein für alle Mal klar ist was ich von euch NSA-Arschgeigen & Co halte: Und Du, NSA, brauchst da nichts weiter zu speichern und analysieren.

For only 0.05 BTC you can have an altcoin generated, tweak a few parameters, add an icon, pay 0.10 BTC to have the Coingen branding removed on the start page, another 0.05 BTC extra to have source code included.
Think you can market an altcoin better than Dogecoin, Catcoin, or even Litecoin? Want to create your own coin and get in on this gravy train? Follow this simple form to get started with your very own altcoin!No, I won't include a link, I'm pretty sure you'll dig it out if you need to, dig as in mining, diggin' it, digga?

Twitter's new country based censorship feature takes your profile's country setting into account, so if you receive Tweet withheld or @Username withheld in place of the affected tweet or account, you might want to change that setting to something more liberal. I think Iceland is a quite good bet..
I ain't a twit tweeting on twitter, I make my dents on identi.ca instead.

As can be seen at the top of my blog the description reads
Eike Rathke blogging about LibreOffice and the world (what a claim)
Trying to claim my blog at Technorati I entered the same as description there. After the automatic verification of the token code I had to place in an entry also fed to RSS they made me wait a few more days. Now in their great wisdom the robots pretending to be humans told me in the Claim Status that
The supplied description is inadequate, or does not seem to match the content of the site. Please update your claim with an appropriate description below and choose the "Update Description" button.
Ok you imbeciles, get lost. I can do without.

Update: The cbronline article is very inaccurate in that it talks about accessing foreign sites would be illegal, which is not the case. Doing business on and by means through foreign sites will be illegal.
