Interwebbed Cyber and Crypto News for June 3



Did you miss us, kittens? First we were at Social Media Camp, then we spent a week in the arms of our old friend Post-Conference Flu, then ALL THREE of our computers died THANKS OBAMA, and now we’re back. For now. As long as we can jam the pc up against a wall to hold the power cord in place.

Wish us luck. And duct tape.

Anyhoodle, you must be starved for news, kittens, so we’ll get right to it. Please ensure your seat is in the upright position, with trays fastened before proceeding.
