This review by @DavidKlion captures what's great about the new Dune film: It translates the book's world into movie language, not literally but faithfully, and so brilliantly that (to me) it sometimes felt more Dune than Dune. newrepublic.com/article/163984…
Replying to @a_greenberg
(I do think it also faithfully translates some of Dune's "white savior" problems too, which look worse on screen in 2021 than they did on the page of a book published in 1965...Hoping Part 2 will do more to subvert/complicate it.)
 
In reply to @a_greenberg
Endlessly grateful again for your invite, and for our hasty but dense post-screening discussions which you can see echoes of in this review
Replying to @DavidKlion
Really glad you could make it...for me it was roughly the equivalent of Woody Allen summoning Marshall Mcluhan in the movie line to back up his argument

Putting on my CyberwarCon socks as I head out to #NYFF to see a screening of Dune, in honor of that other Sandworm and their christener @JohnHultquist

Any position on performance enhancing psychedelics that may result in horrific addiction and mutation into a giant psychic slug?

John, it sounds like you're a little upset I used our sandworm-riding-friends gif with @WylieNewmark. Please understand there's plenty of room on this sandworm for all of us
 
In reply to @a_greenberg
I could’ve stayed in that conversation for days, man. Days.
Replying to @WylieNewmark
I usually reserve this gif for Hultquist but you earned it with the seven single-spaced pages of notes you brought to that interview

Going on the record with @a_greenberg to talk about parallels between Dune and modern conflict was one of the most surreal and spectacular moments of my career. Very grateful for the opportunity.
Replying to @WylieNewmark
You were my first call!

I also loved this piece by @jkehe about how Dune quietly inspired Burning Man—which in turn inspired contemporary Silicon Valley. "Regardless of your feelings about that, its hypocrisy or at least hilarious irony, consider this: It all goes back to Dune." wired.com/story/dune-bur…

Finally @WaterSlicer gives us the nerd service journalism we need, talking to the costume designer for the new Dune film to break down the design of the movie's stillsuits. Best viewed in the pages of the magazine, which you should probably subscribe to! wired.com/story/dune-how…

One of those military Dune readers is @jdbratten, who wrote his own short piece about how Dune illustrates the Carl Von Clausewitz idea of "schwerpunkt" or "center of gravity" in war (in Dune, it's the spice, duh) and how that applies to modern conflict. wired.com/story/dune-spi…

People read Dune to be about ecology/religion/psychology/genetics (it is) but I've always read it as a story about warfare and human conflict. It turns out a lot of military strategists read it that way too. Post-Afghanistan, those themes feel inescapable. wired.com/story/dune-geo…

The brilliant people on Wired's culture team put together this package of stories about the half-century legacy of Dune, that spicy sandworm-infested sci-fi epic we all know and love (or are about to) and they were nice enough to let me do a piece for it: wired.com/story/the-dune…

Incredible reporting on how WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 release of secret CIA docs in 2017 drove the agency to consider kidnapping Assange or even killing him. “Pompeo and other top agency leaders ‘were completely detached from reality…they were seeing blood.’”news.yahoo.com/kidnapping-ass…
 
I interviewed DeSnake, the #2 at AlphaBay who eluded that black market's seizure in 2017, the biggest dark web bust in history. He's back, has revived AlphaBay, and told me how he plans to keep it online. (Step 1: Run it from a non-extradition country) wired.com/story/alphabay…
Replying to @a_greenberg
Lots of doubts re: DeSnake's motives from security analysts/dark web folks. (He verified he controls his original PGP key, might still be compromised or planning an exit scam) DS counters if he were laying a trap, he wouldn't limit adoption with rules like accepting only Monero
 
Replying to @HowellONeill
Sorry I ran out of characters for "run it from a non-extradition country *for real this time*"

So it’s taken me a while to write this but early last month I had a breakthrough case of COVID. (I was fully vaccinated/had both shots), and I know it would’ve been much worse if I weren’t—but it was still plenty awful for me.
Replying to @shanvav
Sorry to hear what you’ve been through and hope you fully recover soon!
 
A few weeks ago I proposed to the person I love and was blessed by her saying yes.

What was kept secret is that before proposing, I secretly reviewed her code for quality, cleanliness and proper programming practices. I didn’t want any hidden surprises
Replying to @kaepora
Congrats Nadim on your fiancée’s code being up to spec! (Hope she reviewed yours before saying yes)
 
I didn't think any trailer could convince me to take a break from thinking about a certain other movie about a big pile of sand full of worms, but I was wrong youtube.com/watch?v=9ix7TU…
 
I’m on semi-vacation so finally listening to the Lazarus Heist podcast. It’s very good, the most detailed narrative reporting I’ve ever encountered on North Korean hackers. Geoff’s book will no doubt be great too.
Happy news!
For those who enjoyed The Lazarus Heist, our BBC World Service podcast about alleged North Korean computer hackers - delighted to announce I'm now writing the book of the series for Penguin, published mid-2022. MUCH more detail to come!

A heartfelt thank you for the outpouring of love and support in response to this thread. I'm going to unplug now and take a walk. I'll respond later.
Replying to @dangoodin001
This sounds incredibly hard, Dan, but you’re a great dad (also have remained a great reporter throughout all of this btw!) and I’m sure you’re doing the right thing and the best thing for your son. ❤️
 
This is a fair, thoughtful piece by Andy. Recommended read.
 
Seems like Apple's idea of doing iCloud abuse detection with this partially-on-device check only makes sense in two scenarios: 1) Apple is going to expand it to non-iCloud data stored on your devices or 2) Apple is going to finally E2E encrypt iCloud? wired.com/story/apple-cs…
 
Maybe you, like me, didn't get to Vegas for Black Hat/Defcon this year. Luckily you can still watch a hacker who's presenting there today as he hijacks the network-connected lights, ventilation and beds of a Japanese-style capsule hotel: wired.com/story/capsule-…

Agree, but don't be humble, Sandworm is dense, damn good reporting as well. Entertaining and scary AF. Cheers Andy!
Replying to @HargroveAlex @audible_com and 2 others
Appreciate that Alex but PRK's work is pretty humbling! If you liked Sandworm I would recommend Countdown to Zero Day, an earlier cyberwar story deep dive

At Defcon next week, two hackers will re-launch (after a years-long hiatus) PunkSpider, a search engine for hackable websites. It will publicly reveal hundreds of thousands of unpatched web bugs—in the hope of shaming site owners into fixing them. wired.com/story/punkspid…
Replying to @a_greenberg
Big questions re: ethics/legality of the tool. Even the EFF sent me a statement criticizing it. Others like @k8em0 argue it will be a net positive: “Vulnerabilities themselves are what lead to the hacking of websites. A tool like this just makes those vulnerabilities visible.”

Have any parents experienced the horror show that is Disney+ making all your downloaded videos not available when your iPad is offline? They all show as downloaded, you check five times, get on a 9 hour flight and nothing…?

Yes! This just happened to us too. Critical parenting vulnerability, CVSS score of 10.0

I am excited to watch it 3 times in a row on my couch the night it gets released
(And maybe then drop $20 in Denis Villeneuve’s gofundme for Part 2)
 
In reply to @a_greenberg
We were pretty disappointed, yeah. We sat there eating our burgers for a while, and then one of us—I think it was me—said, “well, at least the sandworms were cool.” Also I remember liking the personal shields.
Replying to @jetjocko
Hopefully the nerd in line was even sadder
 
In reply to @jetjocko
I’ve watched it a few times since then, of course, and it has a lot of great stuff. Sting in the metal briefs, the weird thing with the antidote-cat, Brad Dourif….
Replying to @jetjocko
It seems, like the Star Wars prequels, it was a huge disappointment that turned out to have enduring cultural value purely for memes
 
In reply to @jetjocko
So *that* was awkward. We tried. And then we got in and finally got to watch the movie we are all so excited for.
Replying to @jetjocko
...and were you incredibly disappointed?

In reply to @a_greenberg
I guess it could also mean “pass, your time to pull” but that’s not the correct way to do it
Hopefully he didn't mean this since I had a 5 year old on the back of my bike. Although the big plastic kid seat would create a much bigger windbreak
 
In reply to @a_greenberg
They are not universal and he might have meant just that. But I would do this to say there is a pothole or car parked to your right, look up and avoid it
Replying to @moltke
I'm going to choose to believe the best about my fellow New Yorkers and go with this more generous interpretation
 
In reply to @a_greenberg
That means obstacle coming - slap right hand on butt, means car etc on the right. When you are riding in a paceline you rely on the persons ahead to do this.
Replying to @moltke
Oh nice! I totally misread him. I thought he was literally telling me "[get off]...[my ass]"😂
