A new Google Chrome extension will allow Twitter users to read tweets from US President Donald Trump in the form of a child's handwriting.
"Make Trump Tweets Eight Again" was created by the team at The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and transforms the tweets into messy and colourful scrawl.

The lava lamp usually gets a bum rap as some kind of lowbrow psychedelic entertainment system for people who are too strung out to enjoy any stimulation of real substance. In fact, it turns out that a wall of lava lamps is a critical component of the encryption effort responsible for about 10% of internet traffic.

While there is no doubt that this feature is very useful to some end users, in prior versions it was available only as an add-on. Now integrated and turned on by default, it's just become another memory hog, requiring fewer open tabs or constant relaunching of the application.

Massive proxy service Cloudflare's CEO made a hard call yesterday: he kicked The Daily Stormer, a neo-nazi white supremacy website, the hell off his service. While he had every legal right to do so - they reserve the right to refuse service to anyone - they have to grapple with some very real ethical implications of their actions. Whether you find the Daily Stormer's content and worldview repellent makes no never mind - true freedom means we tolerate opinions and viewpoints we don't share - this act brings us down the very slippery slope of censorship and net neutrality.
His blog post goes over what was done, how they came to the decision to do it, and what it means for their - and our - future online.

Anyone of wealth can publish their thoughts anonymously here, limited to 980 characters. To prove that they truly are among the 1%, they pay $980. There are no identity verifications. This way, they can tell the whole world, including one another, what they truly think and feel, under the cloak of anonymity. Their published message will be visible to the whole world to see, under a randomly generated pseudonym for extra anonymity.

So your work computer isn't much good for goofing off because the man has installed a firewall that prevents you from going to all the good sites (like here).
The odds are that these sites are blocked also, but well worth giving it a go. And hey, since your ISP is selling your browsing habits without your permission now, maybe you need to use these at home and on the road also.

After nearly fourteen years of operation, Gawker.com will be shutting down next week. The decision to close Gawker comes days after Univision successfully bid $135 million for Gawker Media's six other websites, and four months after the Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel revealed his clandestine legal campaign against the company.

Blockbuster Video is still alive... sorta. There's one store left, a non-corporate location struggling with being the endling of a titan in a now-defunct industry. And they have a twitter account.
Got a great infographic here produced by an SSL certificate website called SSLs.com that is full of information about internet 1sts. Read about when the 1st email was sent, when the 1st domain name was registered, when the 1st image was uploaded, when the 1st blog was launched and more.
