GCHQ presents CyberChef, an Open Source Data Analysis ToolSecurity Affairs Open data are a privileged source for intelligence agencies, almost any government is largely investing in technology to analyze them. Recently the British intelligence Agency, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), has launched a new open source web tool specifically designed for analyzing and decoding data. The tool dubbed CyberChef has been presented by the GCHQ as the “Cyber Swiss Army Knife.” “CyberChef is a simple, intuitive web app for carrying out all manner of “cyber” operations within a web browser. These operations include creating hexdumps, simple encoding like XOR or Base64, more complex encryption like AES, DES and Blowfish, data compression and decompression, calculating hashes and checksums, IPv6 and X.509 parsing, and much more.” reads the description published by the GCHQ on GitHub.

Wikipedia - Web Archiving, Aspects of Curation Web archiving is the process of collecting portions of the World Wide Web to ensure the information is preserved in an archive for future researchers, historians, and the public. Web archivists typically employ web crawlers for automated capture due to the massive size and amount of information on the Web. The largest web archiving organization based on a bulk crawling approach is the Internet Archive which strives to maintain an archive of the entire Web. The International Web Archiving Workshop (IWAW), begun in 2001, has provided a platform to share experiences and exchange ideas. The later founding of the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC), in 2003, has greatly facilitated international collaboration in developing standards and open source tools for the creation of web archives.

Wikipedia:How to read an article history - Wikipedia This page on how to read an article history is intended as an aid to people who are researching with Wikipedia. Experienced Wikipedians often glean a great deal about articles from looking at the page history and following up to the individual edits that make up that history. This page describes some of these tricks of the trade. The suggestions here apply mostly to substantive articles with a number of contributors. If the page history indicates that the page is entirely or almost entirely the work of one person, you are dealing with a situation more comparable to evaluating an article on someone's private web site.

I read a lot of tutorials but still, I couldn't find what I was looking for. Now that I know how d3.js behaves, I thought it would a good idea to share the things that I learned. When you start using the library, there's stuff that might be foreign to you: It uses SVG which many of us have no experience with.

Kindling: An Introduction to Spark with Cassandra (Part 1) This is an introduction to the new (relatively) distributed compute platform Apache Spark. The focus will be on how to get up and running with Spark and Cassandra; with a small example of what can be done with Spark. I chose to make this the focus for one reason: when I was trying to learn Spark two months ago I had difficulty finding articles on how to setup Spark to use Cassandra. The process is actually not that difficult, but pulling all the steps together required some searching and investigation.
