No feature, this week. Look in the feed, though, and there is a new special edition.
Wouter sent in a note, continuing the conversation about the research conducted into hacking the Dutch e-voting systems manufactured by Nedap. Seems Nedap thinks a law suit is an appropriate response to constructive criticism.
The hacker word of the week, this week, is bogon.
In this week’s news, a comparison between C++ generic coding and Java frameworks, the Swiss seem to think they can use malware for wiretapping despite the risks, a clever, aspiring CS student writes programming greats and they respond, and the Debian kerfuffle over Firefox’s logo copyright.
This week’s follows are both about Nedap. The Chaos Computer club calls for a ban, stating that the Nedap systems do not comply with German law. And the Dutch government attempts to secure their Nedap systems.
