The Wachowskis Are Making a Show for Netflix — Vulture

leave a comment »

It was announced today that Andy and Lana Wachowski will be producing a show for Netflix with Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. Beyond being great news for fans of “skis,” the show, Sense8, will be the Wachowskis’ first foray into “television.” Its ten-episode first season is scheduled to premiere in late 2014. There’s no word yet on what the show will be about, but considering the source, we imagine it’ll involve future-space-robots.

BBC News – Global internet slows after ‘biggest attack in history’

leave a comment »

The internet around the world has been slowed down in what security experts are describing as the biggest cyber-attack of its kind in history.

A row between a spam-fighting group and hosting firm has sparked retaliation attacks affecting the wider internet.

It is having an impact on popular services like Netflix – and experts worry it could escalate to affect banking and email systems.

Five national cyber-police-forces are investigating the attacks.

Spamhaus, a group based in both London and Geneva, is a non-profit organisation which aims to help email providers filter out spam and other unwanted content.

To do this, the group maintains a number of blocklists – a database of servers known to be being used for malicious purposes.

Recently, Spamhaus blocked servers maintained by Cyberbunker, a Dutch web host which states it will host anything with the exception of child pornography or terrorism-related material.

Breaking Bad Script Stolen From Bryan Cranston’s Car

leave a comment »

Depending on how you feel about spoilers, this could be bad news or good: Last December, someone broke into Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston’s car in Albuquerque, where the show is filmed, stealing the actor’s bag containing an iPad and a copy of a Breaking Bad script from one of the show’s final episodes.

At least, that’s according to a criminal complaint filed in Bernalillo County; KOAT in New Mexico reports officials at Sony Television, which produces the show, have no record of a missing script.

The relevance of Paula Broadwell’s security clearance – CNN Security Clearance – CNN.com Blogs

leave a comment »

As a commissioned officer in the military reserves, Paula Broadwell’s security clearance would be “secret” or “top secret,” which would allow her access to classified documents, according to military officials.

But exercising a security clearance depends on the type of job a person has, said the officials who spoke privately about the matter because Broadwell is entangled in an investigation of her ties to former CIA Director David Petraeus.

She has been identified as his mistress. The affair forced the former four-star general to resign his post last week. She also co-authored a biography about him.

As CNN first reported, her government security clearance was suspended pending the outcome of ongoing investigations, two U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the matter said.

At Overthinking It, Law & Order is analyzed by two separate yet equally important groups: the people who watch the show and send in the data, and the people who build the spreadsheets. These are their findings…

Google named 2nd best company to work for in the world | Internet & Media – CNET News

leave a comment »

Google is the second best company to work for across the world, at least in the opinion of CNNMoney.

Ranking the top 25 global workplaces, CNNMoney praised Google for its coaching services. The company offers a “CareerGuru” program in which 43 of its senior leaders provide career coaching to employees. These gurus are available in 14 offices around the world.

Google engineers can also discuss issues and concerns with senior engineers known as “EngAdvisors.” More than 900 engineers have taken advantage of this program since it launched in 2009, CNNMoney said.

Currently, Google gets 61 times as many job applications as it has existing jobs. Last year, the company ranked No. 4 on the list.

But software company SAS took the top spot among the 25 candidates, up from second place last year. Located in North Carolina, SAS provides business analytics software and services to its corporate and government customers.
