The Japanese have some weird computer game concepts. Take, for example, MaciGame, in which the goal is to put panties on a cartoon cat's head. (Kibo, via RobotWisdom)
Another Null Device: This one's an industrial/EBM/synthpop band, one of whose members is type designer Eric "Kiwi Media" Oehler (whose fonts have become a goth-club-flyer cliché).
"...Wrong daughter." Some US legislators want to restrict online genealogical databases, because some people use their mother's maiden name or similar as a password, and such databases make it easier for cyberterrorists to find out people's passwords and wreak havoc. Give me a break. Using something that is public knowledge as a secret password is stupidity, much in the same way as writing your bank PIN number in your phone book. And anyone who thinks that their mother's maiden name is a secret is deluding themselves.
