Nah, sorry, I’ve got a duck though

There were plans to post this earlier, but they never eventuated into reality. Which is totally fine. Just see what we have in here to make up for it. Or don’t. Right now, it’s not a big deal.

In here today we have links that range around hacking and the law, the concept of irony, online privacy, combining the two most popular games of the year, ladies wearing cream, stills from movie sets, clothing humour, a new take on movie posters, ecological technologies, wearable surveillance, mapping fiction, encrypted emails, fortune telling, pornographer revelations, virtual card games, playing asteroids in real life, frustration leads to anger and not the dark side, and bionic implants making a difference for everyone.
