Declassified: From Snowden to WikiLeaks to Crypto AG, these are the biggest leaks of the past decade and what we've learned from them

For decades, the CIA used Swiss company Crypto AG, which it covertly owned, to spy on both adversaries and allies, according to leaked documents published last week. The CIA called it "the intelligence coup of the century," but it's far from the only state secret to revealed in recent years. Documents leaked by whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning have shed light on everything from offshore tax havens to CIA torture to the NSA's mass surveillance of American citizens. Here ar...

Section 230 Protects Zillow for Bogus Submissions of House Details–924 Bel Air v. Zillow

This lawsuit relates to 924 Bel Air Road in Los Angeles, a house known as “Billionaire” (seriously, who chose that brand???). It is one of the most expensive houses in the world. The house is located on an acre+ lot in the Bel Air hills above UCLA. In 2012, a developer bought the property and built a monstrosity targeting the 1% of the 1% of the 1%. The nominal stats are pretty gauche: 38,000 square feet, 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms. However, it’s the little details that really make me shake my h...

6 PPC Network Alternatives to Google Ads

Pay Per Click advertising, or PPC as it is known to most, is an incredibly effective way to advertise any business or services on the internet. You create an ad, bid on some keywords, and if your bid is high enough, when people type those keywords in the search engines, your ad is displayed. Once you get the hang of advertising in this way, you can increase traffic and sales to just about anything you want to sell online. And because this method requires a search engine, the name GOOGLE quickly ...

The Importance of Offline Data in SHTF Situations?

Ok guys, it's been...easily almost 4 years since I posted here, but I guess I've re emerged after a few personal SHTFs that left me in some bad spots. Hardy har har oh well.
