Public Space, Media Space | Chris Berry | Janet Harbord Public Space, Media Space asks how public space is being mediatized in different ways in different cities around the world today. Urban public spaces are saturated by media, perhaps more than ever before. These range from highly visible large LED screens in cities like Tokyo, through the cassette sermons one hears in the streets of Cairo, to the invisible, inaudible satellite surveillance systems that are everywhere. They include personal media like MP3 players and mobile phones, public information systems, commercial advertising, and more.

Whether the established priesthood of computer science likes it or not, the web has opened the flood gates and computer science is being secularized post haste. Well, the fact is that most people learning how to make a living on the web are not morons and if given the proper instructions can do just about everything they want to with their web sites, if not more.

Cheap GPUs are rendering strong passwords useless Think that your eight-character password consisting of lowercase characters, uppercase characters and a sprinkling of numbers is strong enough to protect you from a brute force attack? Think again! Jon Honeyball writing for PC Pro has a sobering piece on how the modern GPU can be leveraged as a powerful tool against passwords once considered safe from bruteforce attack. Take a cheap GPU (like the Radeon HD 5770) and the free GPU-powered password busting tool called 'ighashgpu' and you have yourself a lean, mean password busting machine. The results are startling. It gets worse. Surely throwing symbols in there keeps you safe, right? What's the solution? [UPDATE: Take a look at this - whitepixel 2 running with 4 x HD 5970 cards (8 x GPUs) capable of 33.1 billion MD5 password hashes/sec.

You can find more Firefox settings here. 7) Reduce Mailbox Sizes 13) Validate Fonts
