Bookies Predict the Future of Tech

Slashdot - szo, 2014-04-19 02:52
First time accepted submitter machineghost (622031) writes "It's one thing to make predictions about the future of tech; that happens all the time on Slashdot. But it's quite a different thing to put money on the line to back up those predictions, which is exactly what this British bookie has done. Think you know whether Google Glass will beat the iPhone, or whether we'll be ready to go to Mars and back by 2020? Now's your chance to capitalize on those predictions!" Or you could, y'know, invest money in at least some of them, and thereby increase their chances of succeeding.

Ars Technica: Tor network’s ranks of relay servers cut because of Heartbleed bug

Linux Weekly News - szo, 2014-04-19 01:53

Ars Technica reports on the impact that the "Heartbleed" bug in OpenSSL has had for the Tor anonymizing network. "The Tor Project team has been moving to provide patches for all of the components, and most of the core network was quickly secured. However, a significant percentage of the relay servers, many of which serve countries with heavy Internet censorship, have remained unpatched. These systems are operated by volunteers and may run unattended."

Minerva CEO Details His High-Tech Plan To Disrupt Universities

Slashdot - szo, 2014-04-19 01:32
waderoush (1271548) writes "In April 2012, former Snapfish CEO Ben Nelson provoked both praise and skepticism by announcing that he'd raised $25 million from venture firm Benchmark to start the Minerva Project, a new kind of university where students will live together but all class seminars will take place over a Google Hangouts-style video conferencing system. Two years later, there are answers – or the beginnings of answers – to many of the questions observers have raised about the project, on everything from the way the seminars will be organized to how much tuition the San Francisco-based university will charge and how it's gaining accreditation. And in an interview published today, Nelson share more details about how Minerva plans to use technology to improve teaching quality. 'If a student wants football and Greek life and not doing any work for class, they have every single Ivy League university to choose from,' Nelson says. 'That is not what we provide. Similarly, there are faculty who want to do research and get in front of a lecture hall and regurgitate the same lecture they've been giving for 20 years. We have a different model,' based on extensive faculty review of video recordings of the seminars, to make sure students are picking up key concepts. Last month Minerva admitted 45 students to its founding class, and in September it expects to welcome 19 of them to its Nob Hill residence hall."

California Utility May Replace IT Workers with H-1B Workers

Slashdot - szo, 2014-04-19 00:09
dcblogs writes: "Southern California Edison is preparing to offshore IT jobs, the second major U.S. utility in the last year to do so. It will be cutting its staff, but it hasn't said by how much. The utility is using at least two offshore outsourcing firms, according to government records. SCE's management culture may be particularly primed for firing its IT workers. Following a workplace shooting in SCE's IT offices in 2011, the utility conducted an independent audit of its organizational and management culture. One observation in this report, which was completed a year later, was that 'employees perceive managers to be more concerned about how they 'look' from above, and less concerned about how they are viewed by their subordinates. This fosters an unhealthy culture and climate by sending a message to employees that it is more important to focus on how things look from the top than how they actually are down below.'"

How Nest and FitBit Might Spy On You For Cash

Slashdot - p, 2014-04-18 23:22
Nerval's Lobster writes: "Forbes offers up a comforting little story about how Nest and FitBit are planning on turning user data in a multi-billion-dollar business. 'Smart-thermostat maker Nest Labs (which is being acquired by Google for $3.2 billion) has quietly built a side business managing the energy consumption of a slice of its customers on behalf of electric companies,' reads the article. 'In wearables, health tracker Fitbit is selling companies the tracking bracelets and analytics services to better manage their health care budgets, and its rival Jawbone may be preparing to do the same.' As many a wit has said over the years: If you're not paying, you're the product. But if Forbes is right, wearable-electronics companies may have discovered a sweeter deal: paying customers on one side, and companies paying for those customers' data on the other. Will most consumers actually care, though?"

Holtz 1.4.0

Freshmeat - p, 2014-04-18 23:21
Holtz is an implementation of the abstract strategy games Zèrtz and Dvonn from the GIPF project. Zertz is about placing and capturing marbles on a shrinking board. Dvonn is about moving stacks of pieces. The higher the stack, the faster it moves, so the tension increases until the very end. Holtz allows playing locally, over a TCP/IP network, or against a rudimentary AI. It also offers some user hints for an easy start into the game.

Release Notes: New game supported: Bloks. Bloks is a strategic board game for two or four players. Every player has twenty-one differently shaped stones. Alternately, they place one of them on the board according to some simple rules until no space is left.
