TCLP 2009-03-29 News

This is news cast 173.

I will be traveling from the 4th of April to the 13th and will not have my audio gear with me. This is a family trip, not a conference or convention. I should be able to keep on writing for the show but no promises on the blog. There will be no news shows on the 5th or the 12th but I should be able to produce a second feature this week to post on the 8th. I’ll include reminders in the next couple of shows of the missed news shows.

This week’s security alerts are FireFox fixes two critical flaws including one exploited at Pwn2Own at CanSecWest and the first 3D CAPTCHAs are implemented which reminds me of my discussion of next generation CAPTCHAs from back in January.

In this week’s news Shepard Fairey talks about the infringement claims against his Hope poster, a new tool for crowd sourcing JavaScript testing, a breakthrough using Graphene for computing elements, and Google announces a project to speed up Python.

Following up this week controversional section 92a copyright amendment completely scrapped in New Zealand and the troubling EU telecoms package is back along with its three strikes amendment.
