Darknet Explorations

A few articles caught my attention this weekend. This one is pretty awesome What happens when a software bot goes on a darknet shopping spree? via TheGuardian.com

These and other questions are all explored in a new exhibition, The Darknet: From Memes to Onionland, at The Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, an hour east of Zürich, Switzerland.

A robot deployed on the dark web over the past few weeks has bought a pair of fake Diesel jeans, a baseball cap with a hidden camera, a stash can, a pair of Nike trainers, a decoy letter (used to see if your address is being monitored), 200 Chesterfield cigarettes, a set of fire-brigade issued master keys, a fake Louis Vuitton handbag, and 10 ecstasy pills.

I found my way to the Guardian story via io9.com – who used a still from Jake Schreier’s Robot and Frank to illustrate the story. Nice work Jake. 🙂 I’m using one here too.

There’s also a nice story on Forbes.com theorizing on similar subject matter:

A Robot Really Committed A Crime: Now What?

New York Comic Con

Thanks everyone for an amazingly awesome New York Comic Con 2014!!!!  We had a blast, met a lot of fans. We were blown away by how many people remembered us from last year, and we didn’t even have a book to sell!  But this year we did and the response was fantastic.

We’re going to post a little video sometime soon, of footage our friend Rahil shot for us.  Until then you can peep my half-assed instagram feed. Luckily I was too busy selling comics to actually shoot many photos. 🙂

Star Wars Surveillance

I am trying not to read too much of the Star Wars Episode VII rumors, but this one caught my eye. This is some straight-up crazy spy action. My mind warped not b/c some nut is flying a drone over a film set, but because this undoctored photo is so practical/nautural/cool scifi. That location is incredible, the space ships look so at home there, there is no reason to even blink. Is this the CIA looking at North Korea, or a dispatch from an imperial probe droid.  You know, just a fly-by over the Rebel’s star port…

This is in from Toybox @ Io9.com via Latino-Review.
