The article referenced on how to solve the housing crisis is economically naive and proposes solutions that contribute to the housing crisis or are experiments. Rent control and social housing lead to a privileged minority that got in early and have inexpensive rent that is a market distortion. Broadly increasing the supply of housing is the best way to stabilize or reduce rents. Economics 101.

@Bleikhman I fail to see how hacking customer credit cards counts as "exposing". I also don't see what is wrong with them collaborating with government intel. They are an analyst doing what analysts do. What did they do that was bad? It is not like they were spying on individuals like the NSA was. What Hammond did was witch burning. He called them a witch because they looked ugly to him and burned them.

@fogspider please elaborate on what Stratfor did that was so terrible that their customer's data deserved to be compromised? Without that clear evidence, Hammond tarnished the good causes promoted by hacktivism and deserves jail.
@RGO it would have been great if the policy had been no open carry.

I love the irony of TechCrunch and PandoDaily generating more page views by publishing articles about how the media is generating pageviews.

I was hoping for a little more discussion about online identity besides a plug on a people discovery service. Oh well. Identity 2.0 is still a long ways away ...
The title of this story is correct -- the real issue of the hack was the password reset policy -- it was not an authentication issue. Even with two factor authentication, you need a mechanism to reset if you forget your password and/or lose your second factor (whatever that is).

Proving who we are online will continue to be problematic until the internet decides it wants an identity layer. The best way to deal with social engineering attacks is social engineering solutions, not a better mouse trap.
