Interwebbed: Cyber and Crypto News for November 14

T to the GIF, kittens! Another week (wifi-less, no less) done at Cryptosphere Global HQ, currently located in a hive of feminist subversion and mayhem, a mere otter’s toss from the Pacific on beauteous and internet-deprived Vancouver Island. Come Monday we’ll be back at our regular base, coincidentally also within reach of a truly ambitious tsunami.

Not that we want to give anyone ideas, you understand.

But it’s not really, officially, a weekday in the English-speaking world until you’ve digested your morning news, so here it is in one easily-digested chunk. Except that Adrian Chen article on Anonymous. That’s pretty undigestible if you axe me, which I note you did not I’m just sayin’, but then that’s almost certainly because you hadn’t heard about it till I told you, so there is that.

Whatever that is.
