A Curated Guide to I2P A 3 minute read. Photo By Daniel Rehn Lately, several articles have been published about I2P largely due to the Silk Road moving from Tor. Some of these articles have done a good job in covering I2P, others not so much. It seems that one of the hurdles that authors are having trouble with is understanding the idea that there is more to I2P than simply a drug market.

- Boing Boing (see story here) "The Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it." -- John Gilmore If your employer or corrupt, undemocratic, dictator-based government uses a filtering service such as Secure Computing's SmartFilter to block access to BoingBoing.net -- or anything else online -- you can try the following workarounds: Why you should stay away from Unseen.is - joepie91's Ramblings It took a bit longer than I expected before I had the time to make this post, but here it finally is. Not too long ago, I ran across some Anonymous-related Twitter accounts promoting Unseen.is. Unseen is, in their own words, a "private and secure messaging, calling and e-mail application" - which seems great, but really isn't. As it turns out, there are plenty of reasons why you shouldn't ever use them. The mortal sin of cryptography.

How to Setup A Hastebin Server Hastebin is a beautiful simple pastebin used for sharing little pieces of code or information between friends/coworkers. A friend introduced me to it about a month ago when we were trying to collaborate on a piece of batch script we were working through. After utilizing it for a couple of weeks and realizing its usability, I had the epiphany of hosting my own Hastebin! And a plus is, all collaboration is stored on one of my own machines and not out there in the wild somewhere (it helps me sleep better at night). Enjoy!

Tools for Reading and Editing Exif Data of Photographs Most digital camera record and save EXIF data with every photograph. Learn about tools that can help you view and edit Exif tags of your photographs. When you capture a photograph with your digital camera, the camera will not only store the current date and time into the image file but even the camera settings. The information that is recorded by the camera into the photograph may include details about the camera model itself, the lens that was used, shutter speed, aperture, focal length and so on. Some modern digital cameras and camera phones are GPS enabled and they can therefore save even the location co-ordinates (latitude and longitude) with the photographs. All this “metadata” is embedded into photographs using the standard Exif format that can easily be read by most image editing programs as well as online photo sharing websites like Flickr and Picasa Web Albums.
