SPIEGEL reveals that the German foreign intelligence agency is spying on Turkey, big time.

Meanwhile, our government considers providing aid to the Kurdish forces in northern Iraq, including weapons. And our Foreign Minister, over the course of this discussion, referred to Kurdistan as a source of stability in the area.

Neither one of those two pieces of information is of particular interest, but the combination indicates a shift in the relationship with Turkey. Erdogan's gonna be pissed, especially if the EU provides support to the PKK through Kurdistan.

I foresee fun times ahead.

You thought right.

In a fitting coincidence, today was the last day of prep before my first class of students arrives on Monday. I took a job as a high school science teacher at a school for kids who have been kicked out of their zoned schools for academic and behavioral issues--students others have written off and worse. I've been watching and passing around the Taylor Mali and Rives performances all week. After years fighting what I now believe to have been my destiny all along, for the first time in a long time, I feel I am doing what I am supposed to be doing.

Thanks for the heads-up on the link.

Wired piece on Snowden, page 5:

By the time he went to work for Booz Allen in the spring of 2013, Snowden was thoroughly disillusioned, yet he had not lost his capacity for shock. One day an intelligence officer told him that TAO—a division of NSA hackers—had attempted in 2012 to remotely install an exploit in one of the core routers at a major Internet service provider in Syria, which was in the midst of a prolonged civil war. This would have given the NSA access to email and other Internet traffic from much of the country. But something went wrong, and the router was bricked instead—rendered totally inoperable. The failure of this router caused Syria to suddenly lose all connection to the Internet—although the public didn't know that the US government was responsible.

So it wasn't the Assad regime after all. Who'd have thought...

If you wondered what caused all the hiccups on the internet yesterday, may I direct you straight towards Verizon.

Through some fuckup, some of their autonomous systems pushed ~10-15k new routes into the routing table, pushing the total to about 510-515k on average.

Wouldn't be a problem if it wasn't for old-ass Cisco routers which, in default configuration, only have enough memory alloted to their IPv4 routing table to handle 512k entries.
