Interwebbed: Cyber and Crypto #News for September 15



We’re back from our wireless vacay, pirating the wifi in a pirate radio station off the Left Coast. There’s a big, hairy dog on the floor, a discussion of minimum wage on the air, and while there is no picture of Che on the wall, I’m sure at least one person here owns that t-shirt. So our news roundup may be somewhat more patchouli-scented than normal, but it’s cool, man. It’s all cool.
