President Obama came into office 2009 with a promise to make his administration the most “open” in history in terms of revealing information to the public about the inner-workings of government, a claim that has been challenged vociferously. But to further advance his open government ambitions, the President today issued an executive order requiring all major federal agencies under the executive branch to make their data “easy to find, accessible, and usable,” with an important caveat: ” wherever possible and legally permissible.” The White House also released a new set of open source software tools on Github that federal agencies can use to get more of their data out onto the web in software developer and user-friendly formats,…
After hackers attack major U.S. media companies, the administration gets tough.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration announced steps taken Tuesday to step up the nation’s response to emerging cyber-threats.
President Barack Obama signed an executive order hours before delivering his fourth State of the Union to Congress to strengthen cooperation between government agencies and the private sector to identify and respond to threats — including hacking — by sharing classified and unclassified information.
The order also calls for the National Institute of Standards and Technology to develop a “technology neutral” framework for protecting critical infrastructure.
The administration also issued a Presidential Policy Directive to streamline government efforts to protect physical and cyber infrastructure, including updating the National Infrastructure Protection Plan and completing a “national critical infrastructure security and resilience research and development plan within 2 years.”
“Critical infrastructure must be secure and able to withstand and rapidly recover from all hazards. Achieving this will require integration with the national preparedness system across prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery,” the directive says.
The measures come weeks after revelations that major media companies and government agencies have come under hacking attacks. Neither the executive order nor the directive mentions any alleged perpetrators of large-scale cybercrimes— most often linked to China, and sometimes traced to elements of its government or military.

Still waiting for a 128GB iPad? One could come sooner than you think. According to 9to5Mac, Cupertino is preparing to add a new SKU to its fourth-generation tablet line up, slotting next to the existing 16GB, 32GB and 64GB configurations as a premium model. A source at a well known US retailer shared the devices’ SKU information with the outlet, marked up with internal Apple terminology that described both WiFi-only and cellular-capable slates in black and white facades. The devices’ description column features a lone adjective, too: ultimate.
9to5Mac couldn’t confirm that the description meant a 128GB model was inbound, but the assumption seems reasonable enough — developers are finding references to 128GB iOS devices in iOS 6.1 beta code, and icons for the size were found in iTunes 11. Moreover, “good,” “better” and “best” have all been used to describe different iPad configurations in the past — ultimate seems like the next logical step. Strong evidence, to be sure, but we’ll hedge our bets until we see something official. Read on to see the leaked SKU information for yourself.
You may not be able to share those retrograde pictures of your dinner direct to your Twitter worshippers any more, but at least you can commemorate Kobe’s latest slammed-dunkings. ESPN has signed a deal with video sharing service Ooyala that’ll see highlight videos embedded inside tweets so you never have to leave the warm embrace of your live feed. Ooyala’s also offering its SDK for others to follow suit, and while the press release below talks of “monetization” and “optimized engagement,” we prefer to think the pair are doing it to fill that Instagram-shaped hole in our tweets.
Ooyala Delivers In-Stream Video Viewing on Twitter
Twitter Video Card solution creates new ways to discover, share and monetize video; ESPN first to adopt
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ooyala, the leading video streaming and monetization platform provider, today announced that it has developed a Twitter Video Card solution, in close collaboration with Twitter, that enables Ooyala customers a turnkey solution to embed videos directly into their Twitter streams for instant playback. Previously, users were only able to include a link to a video in Twitter. This solution inserts a thumbnail of the video directly into the stream so followers can click and play directly without leaving Twitter.
“Consumers today are at the intersection of social and mobile, and demanding easy and fast access to video content. Our ability to deliver video directly into the Twitter stream is a major step forward for publishers who want to drive viewer engagement in real-time.”
First deployed by sports broadcaster ESPN to better serve its 24 million online video viewers, Ooyala’s Twitter Card solution provides media companies, broadcasters and brands a new way to distribute and monetize video content delivered via Twitter across desktops and mobile devices. In addition, the solution can increase the discovery and sharing of video content and optimize engagement through social and mobile by eliminating the barriers to view content directly on Twitter.
“Twitter is a growing source of inbound referral traffic and outbound content distribution for online media publishers and broadcasters,” said Jonathan Wilner, senior director, business product management at Ooyala. “Consumers today are at the intersection of social and mobile, and demanding easy and fast access to video content. Our ability to deliver video directly into the Twitter stream is a major step forward for publishers who want to drive viewer engagement in real-time.”
As a result of the close collaboration with Twitter, the Ooyala solution has been certified by Twitter, meaning customers can quickly and easily integrate and distribute video content directly into their streams across all platforms — including desktop, mobile web and native smartphone and tablet apps for both iOS and Android — and trust that the player will work seamlessly within Twitter. The solution works via an Ooyala Twitter SDK and automatic hosting for Twitter Cards. The turnkey API from Ooyala automatically generates the necessary Twitter tags so that a video can be inserted onto a video landing page to enable Twitter Cards.
Powerful Solution when paired with Discovery
The technology works seamlessly with Ooyala Discovery, which enables video content providers to increase view-related revenue by algorithmically recommending highly relevant content within the Ooyala Player. For example, if a user watches a highlight from a football game within the ESPN Twitter stream, they could receive a recommendation to also watch highlights from the post-game press conference. Personalized content recommendations can further drive user engagement and monetization for each video share in Twitter.
Opening Revenue Streams
In addition to benefiting consumers, this technology opens up new revenue streams for Ooyala customers. It enables the distribution of ad-supported video content across client-owned and consumer Twitter properties, magnified by sharing tendencies of Twitter users. It also opens the door for video integration into Promoted Tweet advertising campaigns across Twitter.
Customers that take advantage of Ooyala analytics will also have extensive data on the performance of their videos through Twitter Video Cards, in addition to the data they already receive on their websites and/or apps, allowing them to further optimize their video content.
Ooyala delivers personalized video experiences across all screens and is the leader in online video management, publishing, analytics and monetization. Our integrated suite of technologies and services give content owners the power to expand audiences through deep insights that drive increased viewer engagement and revenue from video.
Companies using Ooyala technology include Telstra, ESPN, Pac-12 Enterprises, Miramax, Bloomberg, Telegraph Media Group, Telefonica, The North Face, Rolling Stone, Dell, Sephora and Yahoo! Japan. Headquartered in Mountain View, California, Ooyala has offices in New York City, London, Sydney, Tokyo and Guadalajara, Mexico. The company works with premier reseller and technology partners throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, Japan and the Asia-Pacific region. For more information visit www.ooyala.com.

The fight to prevent California employers and universities from demanding your Facebook login as a condition of employment or enrollment officially ended on Thursday, as California Governor Jerry Brown announced his signing of Assembly Bill 1844 and Senate Bill 1349. The two laws passed in the state Senate last month.
AB–1844 prevents employers from asking workers for social media usernames or passwords, or logging into social media in their presence. It also protects workers from employer retaliation in the case they fail to comply with these kinds of demands. And university students and employees are gaining new protections as well. SB-1349 provides the same rights to students (either prospective or attending) at the state’s public…
Note: Full-res variation RIGHT HERE to print out and hang in your workplace (conserve the data to see it also bigger).
Okay so “updated” may not be the right word, since it’s the precise same geek zodiac I posted last year, just a nicer looking variation. Think about it as like when a cereal business changes their box art. It’s still the exact same penis-shaped sugar bombs on the inside, however now there’s a cartoon kangaroo on the front of the box. “Excellent analogy, GW.” I feel like you’re making fun of me.
Thanks to J2yan, who didn’t tell me exactly what his indication is however I wager he’s a pirate.
Right on routine, Microsoft has actually merely revealed on its Windows Group weblog that Windows 8 has actually arised from its long development and screening phase, and will certainly quickly be in the hands of producers and OEMs for installation on new Computers and tools.
