Source: Digiday

Just when publishers thought they had the Web figured out, proposals for a faster, more secure and mobile-optimized upgrade to underlying Web technologies could present them with a new set of challenges. Developers at the Internet Engineering Task Force are finalizing a new Web standard called HTTP/2, an upgrade to HTTP 1.1, which was designed by Tim Berners-Lee and the Web community in the ’90s.

The QI host said there was "something squalid and rancid about being spied on" and using people's fears about terrorism as a means to spy on citizens was "duplicitous and deeply wrong".

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
