Happy Monday, kittens! We’ve got the latest on prison death cults from Barrett Brown, Vint Cerf, who basically invented the internet, on the future of the internet, when good people put bad things on Facebook (Facebook hides them), your policing tax dollars at work (cooking meth, blowing up government property), a new twist on the old DDoS attack, the Return of Jihadi John, and more!

And, yes, more Ashley Madison news. That hack just keeps on putting out.
