Invisible On The Internet

Invisible On The Internet

Invisible On The Internet

I like to browse the Internet in private. Not because I am doing something dodgy, as if I would look at two naked women smearing butter all over each other….NO! I like my Internet browsing to be private because it makes advertisers job that little bit harder to serve their clients latest thing ‘to help my life to be better’, harder.

However, sometimes my life on the Internet is invisible because the stuff I want to do I cannot do because of various reasons such as no Internet connection, lost passwords, no website, corrupted website, denial of service attack and other weird and wonderful activity. This is not ’Cyberchondria’ or anything major such as nomophobia – the fear of no mobile reception it is not doing stuff that you want to do which seems to me much worst.

Hopefully things have been resolved, but I will not be doing a jig of joy. It seems the more we get on board with the Internet and it becomes a major part of our life the more it seems to be more fragile.


A Business Plan For BitCoin Entrepreneurs

Silk Road Logo

Silk Road Logo

Since we live in a virtual world where reality and dreams can mix, lets devise an idea that will truly free the people from all responsibilities and laws.

This is a libertarian wet dream but now it seems we can does this in reality and still maintain some resemblance of normality. 

Immediately a Silk Road style website is launched. Yes I know the authorities have probably subverted Tor but there must be another way of being anonymous on the net. Next We create a online poker site which takes BitCoins. As well as the online poker site we will also create a way of exchanging BitCoins for real cash so that it is easy to get your money for the real world.

Then we create a world wide call girl/boy sex ring so that men and women can pay for sex using BitCoins anonymously. Again there will be logistics problems but Craiglist seemed to have got over this problem….so I have been told!

So in 3 steps we have circumvented the nation state and let loose cheap quality drugs, unlimited online poker and a take away style brothel. All we need to do now is create a religion which will allow us do these types of activity morally, and everything will be hunky dory. Or will it?

Who is going to work in the factories and the fields while we are off our heads on smack, down on our luck at cards and in rehab for sex addiction? Will we rely on third world child labour to cut down on cost? Will the plutocrats who run the world, and, have been slowly accumulating massive wealth; suddenly take away the Internet after taking all our cash and assets? How would we survive such a shock to the system?

Beware of the Internet! It can be taken away from you and reliance on it will be humanity’s undoing. 

 

 


The Twits On Twitter

Crossing the Bar

Sunset and evening star,
  And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
  When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
    Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
    Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;

For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have crost the bar.

© Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Twitter is the perfect example how technology can change society. When we first got into Twitter in 2008 it was seen as a perfect tool some idiots to spout nonsense 24/7, and, my first reaction was it will be like MySpace. How right and wrong was I?

.

First things first. Twitter is for talking crap! That is the whole point of it. If you take Twitter seriously then you are just as silly as the response you get when you post something contentious on it. The only thing is that others take these things seriously and I cannot change peoples mind or do a digital Canute and turn back the tide of technological change. Just as the captain in the poem by Tennyson does not know what is on the other side until he ‘crost the bar’.

.

One of the funny things that is going to be on Twitter in the next few weeks is the online spat between Rupert Murdoch international mogul and Kevin Rudd the Australian Prime Minister. Kevin Rudd has accused Rupert Murdoch of unleashing his newspapers and other media outlets to attack the Labour policy of connecting all the homes and small businesses on the internet super speed highway, because it will direct allow competition to have a good chance against FoxTel Mr Murdoch’s cash cow. Obviously Rupert Murdoch denies this and say his publication have the freedom to do what the want.

.

Therefore this is the democratisation views and opinions. Anyone can join the debate and send tweets to whoever they want. The only problem is that when you allow anyone to say anything, a lot of people will say what they want. So to hear that people are threatening rape because Jane Austin has been put on a ten pound note is not surprising. Of course it is wrong but it shows that some people are not right in the head. Allowing anyone to get involved in any debate will get a load of garbage because people talk a lot of garbage, including me, well especially me!

.

There is no answer to this if you want a free Internet and free comment. We have all trolled someone or been trolled by someone we disagreed with. Being baited or trying to illicit a response which would show how easy we or they were to get upset, why? Well mostly because we disagreed with their opinion, but, didn’t have any respect about the views espoused. It is the action of lazy thinking and closed minds, but, when there is nowhere else to go in a debate then abuse follows.

.

Like I said there will be no answer to this and the fact that the police are going to have to become more involved in the arbitration of online spats things will get more silly and expensive. The only way not to be influenced or upset with Twitter is to ban Twitter. The crossing of the bar is complete.

Hacker At Work

When you get hacked it is annoying, but, what is worst is when the hackers offer their services as a security consultant so effectively blackmailing you to pay them to stop hacking you. If anything will drive the internet into the hands of the government and plutocrats is this type of behaviour. In fact why wouldn’t those dodgy who choose to rule the masses not encourage hackers to do their bidding when it will eventually help the oppressors keep power?

Wikileaks has done some good in that it taught us that in high level politics things are not always as they seem. With such monumental escapades will have the alternative sheer hooliganism and dark criminal activity. 

Anyway hopefully these people will do stuff about the abuse of human rights, rampant religious intolerance and the over reach of global plutocrats instead of humble website owners and bloggers having a presence on the net.

It has been a long time coming, and we will soon realise that you don’t have to be a superstar poker player to have a good game! Pokerknave is going to stream live card games from pubs via the Internet. We will show all types of card games from poker to brag, from nap to bridge. 

The difference is we will show your every day Joe’s and Joanna’s. Sometimes we will feature one of our Poker Totty’s, but on the whole it will be those who treat poker as a recreation and not a profession, although the standard of play can be quite high. 

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xtz3wh

Also on the horizon will be live streamed 8 ball pool matches. This will follow the format of English pool which is played by 2 million people in the UK alone. So keep checking us out and if you know of any venues from pubs to casino’s that may be interested let us know via the contact form.


Internet Security and Online Poker

Geek Hacking

The scary subject of internet security was shoved into my face this week and it is not a nice thing to have I tell you. All though everything was Ok in the end, it seems that ‘Joe Public’ will be attacked and hacked by all sorts of individuals and organisations who want to poke around your stuff and either steal it or destroy it. I suppose it is equivalent to a Friday night in Newcastle or Birmingham in which anti-social behaviour is routine.

This leads me onto another story of a online poker player having his account hacked after he clicked onto a link which then placed a trojan onto his computer and stole his password giving the hacker the ability to steal over $100,000! The method used was the double extension in which .jpg is followed by .exe. A lot of people see the ‘jpg’ bit and forget the ‘exe’, which then does the damage. 

It seems that online poker does get it regular hacking stories as tories get in trouble for sex scandals. Do you remember the Zynga hacking story in which a guy stole billions of Zynga money token which worth around $10,000,000+! The thing that surprised me was the ‘value’ put on a game without any real monetary objective except the chance to buy imaginary money.

I hate to refer  back to our US brothers and sisters but we online poker players really do need a US regulated market on board. Having the US on board will not stop hacking, but, it will help to regulate best practices and allow players to go to sites which will perform to higher standards, which mean better security for the players money. It is so easy to see stories of online poker firms disappearing with money from unsuspecting depositors.

Just look at what happened with ‘Hackgate’ and The LIBOR scandal all which was rooted out in the US first and thank god for that. I have in the past made fun out of the crazy politics and really childish behaviour exhibited by some high profile figures. However, having a written constitution which gives people the right to challenge authority and seek the truth via open debate is a great thing and the sooner they bring this standard of behaviour to online poker. I suppose the chance of a fully fledged federal law allowing online poker to properly exist in the US will have to wait until the election on November 6th, 2012.

What Bots?

Is this your poker opponent?Is this your poker opponent?

There is a complaint going through California courts at the moment and part of the complaints is about alleged use of bots by Full Tilt Poker.

If this does turn out to be true then there will be big ramifications, since it implies that the online game is not legitimate and in fact could be nothing more than a online casino game.

This follows on the big case a while ago which concerned the illegal use of software to look at players hand and nearly led to meltdown of at least one company and recriminations that will never go away.

In the end it was an employee of AbsolutePoker which abused the system and stole the money but this is not good when millions of people are sending money to all sorts of businesses around the world.

There was also the case of UltimateBet where the company tried to cover up the fact that people were being ripped off.

As anyone with passing interest will internet poker knows the forums are full of conspiracy theories and the sooner the poker firms get their house in order the better it will be for everyone. I

n the end this situation will need more regulation of poker firms, not because we players do not trust poker firms but continuous doubt will be the downfall for online poker.

Obviously I will return to this issue again.

Watch this video as it show how the scam was done. The cheater could see the hole cards of his opponents thereby making his move at the best time possible.
