To look at my grades in school you’d never make me out to be a history fan. In school I never really understood what importance those “old time stories” had to do with the amazing places my life was going to go until it got there. Somewhere along the way I got curious. Seeing a billboard on the side of the road announcing that Fred’s Widget Store had been in business “since 1920” got me wondering. At first I thought about the invention of the widget, which I honestly thought was a more modern creation, then I started thinking that maybe there wasn’t a half bad living to be had in the widget business. Beats worrying about cleaning people’s mattress all day like I do today.

Chirpstory Lets You Filter And Bundle Tweets Into Stories Curation, the concept of filtering and organizing online content to separate signal from the increasing noise in social media, is currently one of the most discussed buzz words in the web industry. The number of curation tools, however, is still (relatively) low: Storify, which launched during TechCrunch Disrupt, and Curated.by are probably the most prominent examples at this point. Enter Chirpstory, a new and Twitter-focused curation tool, which lets you gather and share collections of tweets around a specific topic. Popular news items, events, or trends may see thousands of related tweets, retweets and spam posts in a matter of hours: Chirpstory offers a way to curate and “summarize” related tweets in the form of a continuous or thematic narrative. Each story (you can also call this a list or summary) is hosted on an easy-to-read, dedicated page hosted on Chirpstory.com or can be embedded on external sites.

Mapping del.icio.us with Anthracite and OmniGraffle Several people have asked me how I produced the visualizations that I used in my talk on del.icio.us. While those visualizations were constructed with a rather eclectic mixture of homebrewed code, assorted applications, and a good bit of elbow grease, I decided to put together a tutorial for people who might be interested in this type of visual exploration, but are not inclined to write custom Perl code to do so. Hence, I have selected a combination of two very nice applications for Mac OS X - Anthracite and OmniGraffle - to produce similar visualizations. Neither application is free, but both have free trial periods, should you be inclined to check them out. As an alternative to OmniGraffle, the excellent open source program Graphviz may be used, although it is less user-friendly than OmniGraffle. The sequence of steps we will go through is as follows:

MySQL.com Compromised & Spreading Malware The latest story doing the rounds is that MySQL.com got hacked and was serving malware which put it on the Google malware block list. It appears to be in the clear now though and it’s accessible again via Google. It seems to be a similar case with that of the recent Linux.com and Kernel.org hacks – in which the sites were compromised via developers who had access. In this case it seems MySQL.com was compromised by malware that spreads itself via FTP from client machines, it then uploads malicious JavaScript to any sites the client machine has access to and propagates malware using those sites. Hackers recently compromised the website hosting the open-source MySQL database management system and caused it to infect the PCs of visitors who used unpatched browsers and plug-ins, security researchers said.MySQL.com was infected with mwjs159, website malware that often spreads when compromised machines are used to access restricted FTP clients, a blog post from Sucuri Security reported.

Curated.by Aims To Be The “Smithsonian Of The Web”, But They Need Your Help Last night was interesting. I was sitting down to do some last-minute research for a post I was working on (this one) when news began to break that North Korea had just attacked South Korea. As usual, news was flowing through Twitter faster than any one source, but I needed a way to filter the noise. Oddly enough, the product I was writing about is perfect for that: Curated.by. Using Curated.by’s extension, I began flagging tweets that I found to be most useful for the Korea situation. Then I checked the Curated.by site to see that someone else was already way ahead of me (in this case, co-founder Bastian Lehmann), so I started following his curation of the events.

And Beyond… ha.ckers.org web application security lab Here we are, my friends. The 1000th post. Whew! It’s quite a load off to have finally made it.
