Web Semantics: Modern German black-hat hacker handles – “What’s interesting, though, is how entirely businesslike some of these are nowadays. If you call yourself “Extasy8” or “M3THLOV3R” or “MasterCards,” those are basically ads. And why not call yourself an ad for your own services?”

When her son Phil, 23, is asked what she does for a living, “I say my mom’s a secretary for federal inmates… Basically anything they want us to do, we can do it.” Phil’s specialty is getting the prisoners on dating websites, helping them meet women, and then explaining to those women that their new acquaintance might not be able to grab that drink for a while.”

Herdologie, oder Worum syt dir so truurig? – “Prähistorische Geschlechterdebatten und salopper Rassismus in den Medien: Soll man sich darüber ärgern, gar “Kritik üben”? Nicht immer und nicht nur: Sich an seinen Gegnern abzuarbeiten, macht abhängig, traurig und handlungsunfähig.”
