Four short links: 21 January 2011

  1. Proof-of-Concept Android Trojan Captures Spoken Credit-Card Numbers -- Soundminer sits in the background and waits for a call to be placed [...] the application listens out for the user entering credit card information or a PIN and silently records the information, performing the necessary analysis to turn it from a sound recording into a number. Very clever use of sensors for evil! (via Slashdot)
  2. Cloud9 IDE -- open source IDE for node.js. I'm using it as I learn node.js, and it's sweet as, bro.
  3. The Quantified Self Conference -- May 28-29 in Mountain View. (via Pete Warden)
  4. Bram Cohen Demos P2P Streaming -- the creator of BitTorrent is winding up to release a streaming protocol that is also P2P. (via Hacker News)

Four short links: 20 January 2011

  1. Ajax Code Editor -- MPL/GPL/LGPL-licensed Javascript code editor that can be embedded into web sites. This used to be Mozilla Skywriter which used to be Mozilla Bespin. (via Mozilla Labs blog)
  2. Sun A Year After: The Open Source Projects -- roundup of what happened to Sun's open source projects after the Oracle acquisition. It's like the plague struck: some are dead, some are dying, some are fearful, others plough on resolutely.
  3. libcpu -- open source library for emulating CPUs, built on llvm. (via a Stackoverflow answer on emulators)
  4. MIT Open Courseware Supports Independent Learners -- they've taken some popular classes and made sure the material stands alone, by writing new material to replace references to closed/offline/etc. textbooks. OCW Scholar is not a distance-learning program, but rather educational materials provided for free without the support of an instructor or teaching assistant. The trade-off for this content-based approach without interaction is that OCW Scholar can be used by a very large audience for only the cost of digital distribution. How long until cheap teaching universities spring up, offering the MIT courseware with on-site TAs?
