The Washington Post have an interesting historical article about a group of hackers testifying before the US Congress about internet security, back in 1998 - and how little has changed since, thanks mpot. The seven young men sitting before some of Capitol Hillís most powerful lawmakers werenít graduate students or junior analysts from some think tank. No, Space Rogue, Kingpin, Mudge and the others were hackers who had come from the mysterious environs of cyberspace to deliver a terrifying warning to the world.

Closer to home, an Australian anti-piracy crusader wants to tell everyone why illicit downloading is bad. Graham Burke is obsessed with three things right now: online piracy, Queensland rainfall trends and his bathroom scales. I'm at Rockpool Bar & Grill in Sydney's CBD to have lunch with Burke, perhaps the most influential person in Australia's internet piracy debate and a man known to stalk parliament as a lobbyist.

It's not delivered by drones, but Amazon have launched a one-hour delivery service in London. Nope, not April 1st, I checked. Amazon.com Inc launched its one-hour delivery service, Prime Now, for select areas of London on Tuesday and said it would expand the program to additional cities in the United Kingdom by the end of the year. For a fee of 6.99 pounds, Amazon Prime members can have orders worth 20 pounds ($31.43) or more delivered in one hour, the company said on its UK website on Tuesday.

Google Earth is 10 years old. 2005 was the beginning of Google Earthís evolution, as well. In August of that year, Hurricane Katrina showed us how useful mapping tools like Earth could be for crisis response efforts. Rescue workers compared before and after Satellite imagery in Google Earth to better locate where people were stranded. And in the years after, with more than 2 billion downloads by people in nearly every country in the world, Earth has enabled people to discover new coral reefs, journey to the Moon and into deep space, find long-lost parents, clear landmines and much more.

Microsoft are looking at how to use Minecraft in Education. Iím personally excited by how educators are incorporating Minecraft into their curriculum and what their students are picking up in this immersive learning environment. Elementary students in Seattle are learning foundational math skills by calculating perimeter, area and volume in Minecraft during a Saturday math program. Middle school students in Los Angeles are learning about major world religions as part of their humanities class. They are visiting sacred sites in their city, researching international sites and then building them in Minecraft.

MIT are working on software that can fix itself. At the Association for Computing Machineryís Programming Language Design and Implementation conference this month, MIT researchers presented a new system that repairs dangerous software bugs by automatically importing functionality from other, more secure applications. Surely just one more step on the road to the future enslavement of mankind!
