If you are in a photo that has been uploaded to Flickr, IBM may have used your face to train facial recognition technology that could eventually be used to surveil you.
Nearly a million photos were scraped from Flickr to do so.
somehow managed to miss out on one of the most exciting 'hacks' demonstrated during #35c3 : the rental housing syndicate in Germany.

Take part of #acidDecember this year!!
A thousand year old tradition from the polar interwebs, that encompasses everything fun and acid music.
You can contribute anonymously, or send your your bestest links and pics and incredible story that'll make you look amazing on the acidweb, just as long as there is a piece of #acidmusic acompanying it, which you are ok with having freely distributed.
This is the 2015 edition:
Boost so others may join the creative acidity!
Just pull the plug on europe already Do something cool with your evil powers, tech giants! Unless we EU citizens do something to swap them, we have the leaders we deserve. Give us the mayhem they've asked for us. Better yet: let's us look but not play. No more uploads, no more input fields, no more share button. This could incentivise even the most selfish selfie narcisist to activism. Do it a week and watch the leaders crawl under angry mobs of a People's European Union. #SaveYourInternet
