  8. The US and UK governments have issued official statements today formally accusing Russia's military intelligence agency, GRU, with carrying out a coordinated cyber-attack on thousands of Georgian websites in October 2019. From a report: The incident, widely reported at the time, was considered the largest cyber-attack in the former Soviet country's history. According to a report at the time, unidentified hackers broke into at least one web hosting provider and defaced more than 15,000 websites with an image of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, with the text "I'll be back" overlaid on top. The former Georgia President was known for his fierce pro-Western agenda but is now a Ukrainian citizen after leaving Georgia in 2013, citing a political witch-hunt on corruption charges. The messages were reported as appearing on sites for the Georgian government, courts, NGOs, news media, and local businesses. In some cases, the web host disruption also took down broadcasting services for some radio and TV stations. Read more of this story at Slashdot. View the full article

  10. Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Twitter has tweaked its UI to make it easier to add new tweets to old threads. (No, it’s not an “edit tweet” feature.) As you’re composing a new tweet, you’ll be able to pull down a view of your past tweets and threads into the composition window. Previously, you’d have to go back and find the thread, then add the new tweet at the end.

Now you can add a Tweet to one you already Tweeted, faster! pic.twitter.com/j3ktAN6t5o — Twitter (@Twitter) February 19, 2020 Here’s how it will work: while composing the new tweet, choose which older tweet you want to connect the new tweet to.

  15. Image: Netflix Netflix is kind of like your quiet friend who grew up to do way more than anyone thought they would. Work with me on this metaphor. That same friend, who suddenly became the most popular person in school, is now taking a chance by moving abroad. It doesn’t matter that the group of friends Netflix has amassed over the years is suddenly vying for its spot as the cool kid; Netflix is only focused on the new friends it’s going to make. Without those new friends, Netflix can’t increase its popularity, and that’s all Netflix really wants. That’s a long way of saying that Netflix likely isn’t going to get much more popular in the US over the coming years. But knowing that, it’s heading abroad with the hopes of beating out its biggest... Continue reading… View the full article

  23. Photo by Lane Turner/The Boston Globe via Getty Images Uber and Lyft have fundamentally transformed the way people get around cities. There is no disputing this. But there’s also no getting around the ugly externalities of app-based ride-hailing: hundreds of thousands of low-paid drivers at the mercy of an uncaring algorithm, women passengers subjected to sexual assault and rape, cities choked with traffic congestion, public transportation systems struggling to maintain ridership. It may shock you, but you don’t have to use Uber or Lyft. The apps have become so ubiquitous, especially for people who live in or travel to cities, that the idea of trying to get around without either sounds daunting or even impossible. But let me assure you, there are better, more ethical methods of... Continue reading… View the full article
