Hackers and hacker groups were quite famous in the 80’s and 90’s but their popularity started fading since the Y2K days. Today, we are once again witnessing hackers threatening to take on giant corporations sending chills down everyone's spine. Crawling facebook with R - Romain Francois, Professional R Enthusiast So, let's crawl some data out of facebook using R. Don't get too excited though, this is just a weekend whatif project. Anyway, so for example, I want to download some photos where I'm tagged. Syria File Today, Thursday 5 July 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing the Syria Files – more than two million emails from Syrian political figures, ministries and associated companies, dating from August 2006 to March 2012. This extraordinary data set derives from 680 Syria-related entities or domain names, including those of the Ministries of Presidential Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Information, Transport and Culture. Over the next two months, ground-breaking stories derived from the files will appear in WikiLeaks (global), Al Akhbar (Lebanon), Al Masry Al Youm (Egypt), ARD (Germany), Associated Press (US), L’Espresso (Italy), Owni (France) and Publico.es (Spain).
Properties (The Java™ Tutorials > Essential Classes > The Platform Environment) Properties are configuration values managed as key/value pairs. In each pair, the key and value are both String values. The key identifies, and is used to retrieve, the value, much as a variable name is used to retrieve the variable's value.

The Netocracy is coming (you better be ready) We are in the middle of a social revolution spawned by the possibilities of the Internet and its democratization that gives 2 billion humans the possibility to obtain information, interact and develop ideas. This process has given birth to a collaborative web (2.0) as people realized they could get connected to each other as much as to websites. Today the Internet has changed our relationships to almost everything from work (the possibility to work from anywhere and to co-work with anyone, virtual workspaces), the economy (Internet economy, online consumption, crowd funding) culture (collaborative creation and sharing of artworks in P2P networks) knowledge (we are readers AND editors of Wikipedia), human relations (social networks, chats and VoIP), politics (citizen journalism, blogs, hacktivism, Wikileaks), etc.
