8:55 PM | The Shellshock Bug In About Four Minutes Remember Heartbleed?...
The Shellshock Bug In About Four Minutes Remember Heartbleed? Well, this is probably worse. Here’s a (somewhat simplified) explanation of what Shellshock actually is. Don’t worry: I haven’t included instructions on how to actually exploit it. The moral of the story is: keep your security patches up to date! Uploaded by: Tom Scott.

2:02 PM | Vinton Cerf warns about digital oblivion
After the fall of the Roman Empire, a dark age came in which a large part of the ancient knowledge was lost in Europe. Manuscripts were destroyed in wars and fires, or became illegible before getting transcribed. Much of their content had to be re-discovered, but it took centuries to recover it. We may be at a similar turning point, according to Vinton Cerf. The computer scientist and “father” of the Internet warned at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum that we... Read more

11:40 AM | Vint Cerf on being forgotten or remembered
Anna Valmero, participant #hlf14: Humans of today will be ghosts in history unless the challenge of digital preservation is addressed. This was the challenge posed to attendees of this year’s Heidelberg Laureate Forum by Turing Awardee Vint Cerf, TCP/IP co-designer who, together with Bob Khan, is regarded as the father of the Internet (although he himself insists that it took the work of thousands of people to realize the Internet from its military roots to a powerful, complex organism […]

Thilo Küssner, official #hlf14 blogger for the german blog section: If mathematicians want to illustrate the development of their discipline in the last 30 years in Korea (where I am currently working) they like to mention that the number of publications of Korean mathematicians in scientific journals increased during this period from 3 (three) in 1981 to currently more than 50,000 (fifty thousand) each year. These figures might give the impression that there would have been no Korean […]

6:00 AM | First Impressions of the Second Heidelberg Laureate Forum
Last year, I wrote with some envy about the first annual Heidelberg Laureate Forum. This year, I'm there! I mean, here! Yes, after several flights and a few train delays, I'm finally in Heidelberg, and if the fog clears and drizzle dissipates, the surroundings will be beautiful! The Heidelberg Laureate Forum is a chance for stodgy old Turing, Abel, Nevalinna, and Fields laureates to get an infusion of fresh ideas from the 200 young math and computer science researchers who graciously...
