The Declaration of Accelerationist Politics" and subsequent works rejected the left-wing blind worship of so-called "folk politics": flat democratic organizations, space restrictions, slowing down of romanticism, and folk localism.

There's a truism that I like to share with as many people as possible: if you don't want other people to see something, then don't post it online. It is, you might think, a pretty simple concept to grasp. After all, you wouldn't stroll into a bar with a megaphone …

The Onion Router, better known as the Tor Network, is often thought of as being the dark-side of the web. Not least as the anonymity provided by Tor meant that sites hosted on so-called hidden service servers were free to trade in just about anything from drugs and guns through …

Not exactly the most surprising news ever, that Anonymous is [planning an all out DDoS war on World Cup corporate sponsors](http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/world-cup-2014-hacktivist-group-anonymous-plan-cyberattack-on-world-cup-sponsors-9467786.html) during the football tournament. Personally, I wish them luck. Cannot stand football, in fact hate it with a passion and the world cup period is a nightmare every four …

Today is another of those 'Hallmark' IT security days; in the case of Tuesday the 11th of February 2014 that means 'Safer Internet Day'. I'm not going to start yet another rant about the pointlessness of this, and why every day should be Safer Internet Day. If you want to …

On a site I am helping develop, there seems to be a problem with code executing while not logged into Sharepoint 2010. When logged in as administrator, everything works fine on the site. Code executes as it should. However, when we visit the site without logging into SharePoint or as …

Over the last few hours of the day GoDaddy's (and GoDaddy managed) websites have been [on the fritz](http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2012/09/10/godaddy-has-glitches-anonymous-claims-responsibility/) as webmasters and visitors alike are unable to access millions of websites held within GoDaddy's datacenters in an apparent Denial of Service [(DDOS)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack) attack. GoDaddy is currently scrambling to restore service to …

The FBI took claims by new hacking group The WikiBoat that it was going to bring down the likes of Apple and Tesco last Friday at 4pm so seriously that it sent email warnings to those targeted. It's now Sunday morning, and the threatened DDoS attacks do not appear to …

Following the arrest of 25 suspected members of the Anonymous hacking collective in Europe and South America, the INTERPOL website went offline. Coincidence? I don't think so. After all, Anonymous has already proven it isn't scared, or indeed incapable. of taking down law enforcement sites. Earlier in the month it …
