Dark Stalking on Facebook - Paul Fenwick

For a while I've been using Facebook's API and Facebook Query Language (FQL) via Perl's WWW::Facebook::API module to run fairly innocent queries on my friends. If I visit a town, I'd like a reminder of who lives there. If I want to go rock-climbing, it helps if I can easily search to see which of my friends share that hobby. This is good, innocent stuff, and makes me glad to be a software developer.

Last week I decided to play with event searches. If a large number of my friends are attending an event, there's a good chance I'll find it interesting, and I'd like to know about it.

Internet providers face child porn crackdown

Posted 2009-09-07T12:29:24Z - 6696 comments

UK Internet service providers that fail to curb child pornography on the web would be criminalised in a crackdown to be introduced in the Queen’s Speech this autumn. The Home Office is drawing up plans for what, in effect, would be the first form of state intervention in Britain in relation to the internet. British ISPs would face heavy fines for failing to block sites containing images of child sexual abuse, according to the contents of a leaked Home Office document. This would appear to be another headline inspired move the is big on words and small on action.
