Robyn Pfaffman: Preferred Questions to Ask Alex Murdaugh
"This case and South Carolina Todd with mister Murdoch and his deceased wife, Maddie and son, Paul, who he called paw paw is riveting and insane. And I'm so angry because I've been watching it and if I was the prosecutor, Robin Hoffman prosecutor, I would just look at this guy after all of this on and on testimony and say sir, who do you think killed your wife and son? I personally believe he's totally guilty. It's a very wordy trial prosecutors kind of slow. This is not for the twitterverse crowd that likes it all in 20 characters. And I want somebody to say to this guy, who do you think killed your wife and son, sir, when only your phone is pinging at the tower, you're on star in your car and truck has you at the scene, your tire printer at the scene, it's your gun, you're lying to police, you're lying to all your housekeepers, and oh, by the way, there's three other people that are dead in relation to this case.

What Was China's Access to Biden's Classified Docs?
"This is an important tidbit, which is to say that China is a big funder of the Penn Biden center. And the where these classified documents found at the Penn Biden center. So one question that hasn't really been raised is what was China's access to those to that information. First of all, is what do we mean by classified information? Sometimes they classify stuff that's no big deal. But there are also national secrets and there is also stuff that we would not want to be in the hands of China. And yet no one's claiming that Trump's information got into Chinese hands, but hey, here we go, with Biden. It's a possibility. Right? Yeah, well, I mean, we know that Biden is his beyond. You know, she shouldn't pings and Maduro's. I mean, they have him where they want him. And so unfortunately, for us, because our media is so, so corrupt and so dishonest that they didn't bring any of this up before the midterms. And I think that they knew before the midterms. I really do. Well, you know, I saw something interesting about joy behar said on the view and she was basically saying, we know that Trump is a liar and a thief. And so we are going to approach what she was saying is, what would it take an identical situation and approach it completely differently? Because one guy we know is a liar. And I guess what she meant by contrast is the other guy we know is honest. And see, this is a way of getting away from the notion that you're applying the same rules to everybody. In fact, what you're saying is there are two teams, the evil team, them, meaning us. And the good team, which is the left. So the left can do anything. If the left engages in daring, well, that's good tyranny. If they engage in racial discrimination, it's good racial discrimination. If they use even racial epithets, while they're using it in a good cause. They're trying to promote diversity and equity. So suddenly you have a complete breakdown of all procedural norms.

What Stands Out About the Baffling Idaho House Murders
"I want to talk about the Idaho murder, there's something that really bothers me about the Idaho situation beyond the beyond the obvious and I'm going to walk through that. In a second here, so here's what this guy is by the name of Brian kober, 28 years old, allegedly allegedly allegedly. I want to just keep saying that. And the cops have done a great job looking into this. And so a couple of things. We're continuing to get more information about this. The man accused of murdering the four college students at the university of Idaho. It's become a rather incredible example of what forensic investigators are capable of these days. 40 years ago, this probably would have been an unsolved murder. And for almost a month, it looked like it would be, but thankfully, it has turned out that instead of being hopelessly lost, the police were steadily making progress, and yesterday we learned what evidence they were collecting. Coburger you'll remember was a graduate student in criminology at Washington state university in paulman. Which is only about 8 miles away from Moscow where the university of Idaho is. Co burger became a suspect because he was identified as the owner of a white Hyundai elantra. Which is an FBI analyst identified, which an FBI analyst identified as a vehicle of interest. From a mountain of surveillance footage recorded from nearby buildings in the area. From there, the evidence slowly came together as often the case these days. The suspect cell phone played a role according to investigators, koh Berger's phone show that he visited the murder House 12 time for the killings. Not only that, but he returned to the area of the house around 9 a.m. on November 13th before the murders have even been discovered. Not only take a pause here, if it's indeed true that he visited the house 12 times, then it does dispel the fear that this was just a random killing that he knew the victims. Now, why is that a fear? Because some people, I think, are now living in this state of mind that a knife murderer might just show up at your house. Now, by the way, he could just be staking out. We don't know we'll have to wait for the trial. But it turns out the most important piece of evidence against coburger might not be where his cell phone was pinged, but rather when it didn't. According to the evidence, released yesterday, coburger cell phone stopped reporting its location from two 48 to four 48 on November 13th, the exact time window where the killings occurred when his phone was turned back on. Coburger was driving on the road back to his university.

Mars rover captures 1st sound of dust devil on red planet
"The NASA rover moving about on Mars has captured sound on the red planet. I Norman hall, NASA says its Mars rover had its microphone on when a dust devil passed by. A whirling tower of red dust passed directly overhead, the racket was recorded. It captured about ten seconds of not only rumbling gusts up to 25 mph, but the pinging of hundreds of dust particles against the rover perseverance. The first of its kind audio sounds strikingly similar to dust Devils on earth, although quieter, since Mars thin atmosphere makes for more mute it sounds, and has less forceful wind. I Norman hall
The Twitter Files: Part One
"Files part one that get bits like a series apparently that they're going to be dropping on Twitter on everything that they're basically uncovering as they go through the mess that was the censorship and the manipulation of the discussion of the public discussion that was happening on Twitter. Specifically this started around where I think this really came to light most blatantly was around the Hunter Biden story and the and this is where the Twitter files starts in releasing all of this information. Now I know this isn't like Bitcoin quote unquote related. But a, it was a really long thread, and I know there's a lot of people who are interested in it. People had a couple of people ping me about it. But also, I think he is actually related because the excessive constant over politicization of everything is because of the systemic problems in the unbelievable confiscation, the control over all of our resources and all of our lives that the political sphere has. And not only do I not think that's separate from the problem of money, it is because it is explicitly the result of the problems that we have in our money. And I'll touch on that a little bit at the end, but mostly the rant is just kind of me going on with how painful and obnoxious the hypocrisy of the mainstream and establishment media and political system is. In particular, one of the other interesting things is just how they're treating this, how the establishment media is largely treating this release of obviously true data on a very real and very important story. And most importantly, the explicit lies told and spread and the fact that the intelligence system of this country invented a story out of thin air as to why this was not true. This

Kyle Seraphin: FBI Created Geofence Around Jan. 6 Rally
"And even some of the lefties are starting to ask questions which is shocking saying hey listen that's kind of strange You got all the cell phone data from Google without a warrant of all those people there Even if they were doing nothing wrong now you're a constitutionalist as strong a constitutionalist as anyone That kind of sounds to me like a prohibited general Warren does it And how antsy constitutionally are you going to get It's really dangerous So the FBI has a program that's called the cellular analysis survey team or cast And it's not very many guys that do it It's very very highly specialized Their agents that do it full-time And they do cell phone tower dumps where they pull all the data out of it Those are usually with a warrant They'll do it They do these geofence warrants They'll help kind of write them and they have ongoing contacts with places like Google and all the different cell phone providers and whatnot And yeah it sounds like a general war It's been upheld in the courts so far but I'm really uncomfortable with the way that it does it because it's essentially the FBI's ability to look back in time and find out who was physically in a place at that time without a specific allegation that those persons were involved There's no PC The only PC they have is that something happened but not that the people that they're looking at were involved in it And so the courts had held up but right now but essentially all they got to do is they got to say this is a time and a place that we're interested in This is a geographic location And this is the degree of certainty that we think like a cone of uncertainty that it kind of projects because these are not down to the minute the meter It's going to give you some plus or minus location information But Google grabs everything They grab where you bounced off somebody else's you know their Wi-Fi network as your phone is constantly out there with your Wi-Fi on pinging against it And so it logs all that information and it goes into your Google account And they keep that stuff on you forever So they know wherever you've done Everyone who's been wondering you know how your ad IDs work and all that This is all part of it And yeah they write a general warrant for it They find out all the cell phones that were in that area and that cell phone is almost always in fill in the blank person's pocket It's pretty easy to tie that to a person

Why MAGA Must Embrace Machiavelli In Order to WIN
"Machiavelli wrote, it is much safer to be feared than loved because love is preserved by the link of obligation which, owing to the baseness of men, is broken at every opportunity for their advantage. But fear preserves you by a dread of punishment, which never fails. What we're about to talk about here is an uncomfortable truth for many conservatives. It's something that many people do not like to say out loud, which is only one side is playing ball right now. We're playing ping Pong and the left is playing rugby. They're playing for keeps. We're playing checkers, they're playing chess. Last night, there was an announcement from Washington Post that they are going to indict Steve Bannon for the very same charges that he was pardoned for a couple of years ago. So they raid James O'Keefe's apartment, they raid Rudy Giuliani's apartment. They go after a diary. Why is that the FBI's business? They raid Mar-a-Lago. They indict Peter Navarro. They've indicted and convicted Steve Bannon for different charges. They go after Roger Stone, they go after Michael Flynn. They go after dinesh d'souza, when are we going to wake up and realize that only one side is using political power in this country? This will not change with outrage. It won't. It won't change with op eds and us saying we need to reform the FBI. We need to have a discussion about this. This only changes when the left starts to fear that they will be in handcuffs for their crimes. Let me be very clear. I don't think we should do what the Democrats are doing where they say show me the man. I'll show you the crime. This is how they do it. This is how corrupt these people are because all they care about is power. Their Bible is the prince by Machiavelli. It is their gospel. It is their north star.

Kyle Bass's Reaction to Xi Jinping's Comments on Capitalism

A crisis of confidence and their self conviction has wavered Western countries have begun to reflect an openly or secretively compare themselves against China's politics, economy and path Gigi ping on the inevitability of socialism about here immediate reaction to Gigi ping's musings on the inevitability of the Chinese future. It brings a smile to my face. We all know communism is never worked. And they are the second largest economy in the world say if we give them the benefit of the doubt or the conversion of their currency into ours, but they still have a closed capital account. They have to build a wall to keep their own people in. They have to rinse the Internet of anything that's not Chinese propaganda that's going to their people. China is really a joke to the world and yet they pretend to be the model for stability and prosperity and we're going to see going forward that that's just not the case. And we're right on the precipice of that.

Dinesh Examines the Ongoing Feud Between Trump and Musk
"There is a public skirmish going on between Donald Trump and Elon Musk. Which I think is unnecessary and in fact kind of pointless for both sides. But let me describe it first and then comment on it. So this got started when Trump was in Alaska. This was a rally that Trump did for Sarah Palin. But also for Kelly shabaka, who's been on the podcast running against Lisa Murkowski. And Trump began to talk about left wing censorship. And then he goes, quote, Elon is not going to buy Twitter, he goes, where did you hear that before from me? So this is actually Trump being correct. Trump actually predicted that that Musk would give up on the Twitter deal and pull out. And in fact, when Trump said that, no one really else was saying that. Most of us thought, well, Musk is going to want this platform, and even if he ends up overpaying for it, what's it to Musk? I mean, when you have $250 billion and you spend 44, yeah, it's a sizable chunk, but on the other hand, you get to have fun on Twitter, you are the boss. And so this is not I didn't think and others didn't think that Musk would sort of nickel and I am this. But Trump was right. So now, Trump comes back on to say, well, he might later. He's got a pretty rotten contract, not a good contract. So Trump evidently thinks that Musk is over a ping. For Twitter, but then Trump goes on to say he's actually talking about Musk's statement that he first voted. His first Republican vote. Said Musk was from Myra Flores. Another one of our pals, who's been on the show, but Trump then kind of marks Elon Musk and he goes, you know, he said the other day, oh, I've never voted for a Republican. And then Trump says, he told me he voted for me. So evidently, Musk met with Trump for earlier. And apparently Trump says that he told Trump, I voted for you, so that's the case, obviously Musk has voted for a Republican before, and then Trump this, I think, is the unnecessary part, calls Musk a quote BS artist.

Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips on Geo Tracking Technology
"But let's kind of start from square one just to kind of refresh our audience. Both of you went and did the tough work to go get the pings or the geolocation technology that anybody could access if they had the money to do so. Is that correct? Yeah, there's a whole lot of data brokers out there. I think there's 40 or so data brokers out there, some of them are quality, some of them are not. In our case, we use a specific set of data brokers buy from different ones. We get different types of signals. We get a different range of signal. Put them all together. Of course, all the media once talked about is, well, you can't do that with cell phone towers and okay, well, it's not self from towers. So what do they mean? What do they mean by that when they say that? The old technology around sort of GIS proper would end your cell phone would triangulate a signal around towers. And that triangulation depending on how many towers there were or whatever there was. It might or might not be accurate. We just don't use that technology. So they're all a little confused. And kath and I ask that anybody can access it meaning that you didn't use some sort of government clearance, right? This is out there for the world if they had the means to be able to actually get stepped through it as well. Yeah, absolutely. It's out there and it's been out there for a number of years. And it's impacts all of us every single day, whether we know it or not. Yeah, and turning it off on your phone is very unlikely. We're getting tracked all the time. You even say in the movie that you could be tracked with your phone off, which is extraordinary. And so this technology is out there, and it's been used by law enforcement for other projects. Talk about that. Well, I mean, I think the most notable of late is the January 6th event. The government was quick to embrace, as was many of the corporate media, quick to embrace the use of the geospatial technology that now they have used as a backdrop to arrest and imprison many Americans. So the accuracy clearly was something that law enforcement looked kindly upon. And in that situation.

Data brokers and true the vote are the real villains of 2000 meals movie, right? So the idea here, this is a very coming from a very different angle than we've seen. The idea here is that the movie deserves this is the movie deserves condemnation for performing widely invasive research on thousands of people's location data.

The Media Has Not Done One Inch of Investigating Ballot Harvesting
"I had an opportunity to speak to a reporter and she was actually a very nice person for a mainstream media publication. Now, if I told you the publication you would know it, but we were off the record and unlike the left, I actually want to honor off the record for both of us. So she was off the I was off the record. I don't know if she would consider herself throughout the record. But I'm not going to say who this was. We had a nice conversation. And I looked at her very plainly. I said, when you watch this movie, you're going to be blown away by the evidence, and she was like, oh, come on, I've heard all this stuff before. And I walked through, I said, no, no, you don't understand. Geo tracking technology as when you see videos of people coming out of the cars with piles of ballots at three 30 in the morning. And do you know what she said? She said, but that's not illegal, is it? I said, you're a national politics reporter for one of the largest of course it's illegal. You can't ballot harvest in Georgia. You can't ballot harvest in Arizona. You're only able to maybe do it for a week in Pennsylvania and then the court overturned it. I was just blown away by the media hasn't even done an inch of investigation into this. And it just goes to show by just kind of how they have no literacy. There might be a better word for that. But they really have no understanding. I suppose is a good filler term of any of the laws or the technicalities around it. But if you were to ask kind of did Donald Trump break federal election law, yeah, no grasp. Thank you, Connor. That's exactly right. No grasp. If Donald Trump break federal election law for some phone call and Fulton George like every political reporter will be able to tell you what criminal code he violated what how he was breaking precedent for calling some person in Georgia even though he did nothing wrong in that whole thing. But if you were to say, hey, don't you find it suspicious that people were going from one ballot Dropbox to the other with piles of ballots at 3 o'clock in the morning we could prove it through pink, cell phone ping technology and pair it up with videos, isn't that even at least bit compelling?

Salem SVP Phil Boyce's Takeaways From '2000 Mules' Film
"Now there's two things in the movie that I would ask people to watch for if they haven't seen it. One is the video surveillance. We've got 4 million minutes of video surveillance where you will see these mules stuffing tons of ballots into these open air ballot boxes that are not being monitored by anybody in other than in some cases a surveillance camera. And you'll see them do it, and that's proof number one. Please number two is what they did, which was brilliant with the cell phone geo tracking. So, you know, your cell phone pings every couple of minutes and it'll tell somebody where you are. It's sort of like if you walk into a store and all of a sudden you get a text message from that store saying, hey, don't forget to buy blah blah blah. It's the same technology. They know where you are and where you're going. So we track these mules and in order to make the cut of the mules, you had to have gone to at least ten different ballot boxes in the weeks leading up to the November 2020 election. Now, why would anybody go to ten different ballot boxes? Unless they were up to no

Players would take turns serving the ball with their paddle over to the other side of the net and then their opponent would return the ball by hitting back. If a players returned didn't hit the table on the other side of the net then their opponent gets appoint. Good heavens in my teacup again.

Verification system verified uses could then choose to only interact with other verified users allowing the majority to be in a safer place but also letting people maintain anonymity if they need to many historic you as a workable compromise. I'm just generally quite oppose to. Id verification again. This comes back to like the kind of people that i work with. And who is excluded from hundred mainstream conversation anyway and how that works. If you're someone who's undocumented for example using social media is probably one of the only ways that you can get your voice hud and have your story told and if you need to have some kind of id verification and then people can optionally choose not to hear you. If you don't do the are. I think that's quite detrimental so i just don't really see a place for private social media. Companies to have the data and then the relationships between now and government on private corporations also scares me so i'm annot Charles's probably something that you you've thought about. Maybe maybe written about is this. I mean this would create a two-tier system. I suppose is a way of shielding people from. I suppose the worst side of of anonymity which is abuse while allowing other people to to took a felony empty. It's always initially very promising. But actually it's sort of exists already on a lot of the twins will say i don't show me tweets from people verified account by find number two it though sorta disrespected senate. Email that you never get these emails from people. Say hello on a whistle blower at a big company. Why don't we have verifications for people who want to post and social media the part of the power social media. I pump the strength of it. Is that pretty much. anyone can put something up. You know the judge floyd film was crucial and no unverified her. She just put up there and it was. It was a document which we stand up true so the superficial attractiveness of it the the white solve this problem is much more better moderation because the systems do exist for that and certainly the ways of preventing effectively unverified accounts from posting on very famous football accounts and stuff do exist.

And what on earth does this person think works that we had radicalization but it was a it was a way in which the whole outright began to coalesce around it because they started to sing the power simply saying things not necessarily being true and the power that can have and the way that re tweets and quite tweets could sort of start to just grind someone down and it also spilled over into real threats so that you had a phenomenon where things started to shift into the the real world and really showed. The way that that this wasn't just is not just the internet. it's actually everything. I know a moderator failure at that point right very much so twisted just didn't really think it was free. Two hundred time filled of itself as the the free speech wing of free speech policy and the idea that you would Wholesale remove people from twitter. Basically harassing people. Endlessly was a mathematician that they've changed a lot since then which which i think is interesting. It's in the aleutian. But even at the time there it was eight years old as an organization. An older lessons about moderation had long since been learned in all sorts of other forums. Down the net. You know it's not as if people being informed people sending messages to each other as new. Yeah that's been going since one thousand nine hundred ninety s and all the lessons about how to build good communities versus bad ones. You know the the troubles out you make it possible for them to use your system and that's the way you build good communities that's been known for us. This is pretty striking bit in the book about the the mechanism of the re tweet which unfortunately had an effect on me and now makes me think every time i do it which i know is what you wanted. But you've made me analyze myself. And i've always tried to avoid that. Can you talk about white. Sort of the retreat is part of that sort of social warming and the potential damage that it can do and and maybe how we should have. We should think about that as a mechanism for information exchange. Well remember the thing about the way that this social woman happens is it's about the outrage and the amplification and walk with tend to look at what tends to grab notice what can tends to be pushed into feeds. Either by people will buy the algorithm. Is things that we find outraging so you know it tweet. That may be completely true but which we think. Oh my god that's just that's just awful. It's so easy to between. Jesus hit the little. The little singling. I they have. You may not taken the trouble to check whether it's true but look it's you found the thing that and it's this amplification. That's that's the thing that that happens and one of the ways that it's most powerful is when you have what what are called scissor statements which is not a phrase. I made up. What was your head. It's gushing scott alexander Who runs the Slate style codex block scissors statements of phrases. Which will split any group reads into two so you are the ford or against it.

"What they should have done is used the opportunity of summer to bring the number of infections all the way down. So they could have kept masks on social distancing and utilize the school holidays and the good weather and then that would have meant that they were not so many infections kind of before school starts on the rate that it's going. It seems to me that they will have to do something unless they want a proper lockdown in september because as soon as school in in uni starts again that's going to lead to a spike and again if you're concerned about the risk of a new variant. You should probably be thinking about how to to level off the numbers of infections. I feel like they'll probably do that first. So they can stop short lockdown because they won't be as many deaths because the vaccine is working to extend but that will be a lot of people needing to isola- and i guess in terms of needing a lockdown.

"Could create the ping by accident in two thousand fifteen scientists from the university of california. San diego led by peter. Worcester conducted the canada basin acoustic propagation experiment or canopy from two thousand. Fifteen to two thousand. Seventeen worcester's team submerged transmitters in the arctic ocean which broadcast low frequency radio waves underwater. He hoped to learn about how the changing ocean conditions altered the way the seafloor sounded perhaps canopy distressed wildlife and inadvertently created the ping. Several canadian journalists interviewed the scientists behind the project asking if it was possible that canopy had unintentionally driven the seals out of the fury and hecklers straight worcester dismissed concerns noting that the signals they broadcast had only a maximum range of about two hundred miles. Nowhere near the distance they would need to travel to reach nunavut. He added that even if a sound wave could make it that far. They couldn't get around the many islands between canopy and the ping other accusations. Implicated the baffin land iron mines corporation as we mentioned before the windsor Was caused by factory.

Goodness in one small can and now back to the story. The nunavut paying allegedly drove wildlife away from the fury and hecklers straight around two thousand sixteen possible explanations for the sound have included scientific sonar devices antisocial hunting activists. Ufo's and unauthorized military submarines. Since submarines use sonar to navigate some theorists. How suggested the boats in the fury and hecklers straight. Were detecting rogue subs if true. Nobody knew where they came from. Historically russia has been notorious for its widespread submarine operations. Their subs frequently patrolled the borders of sovereign waters nearly violating north american territory. Plus the federation also had a history of attempting to claim arctic land international law states that the north pool and the region around it cannot be the property of any single nation however several countries have tried to seize neutral territory most notably canada and russia if they succeeded arctic holdings would give russia a distinct advantage in trade and for military purposes as the ice cap shrank. More waterways open between russia and canadian than ever before perhaps russia's scouted these passages to see how close they could get to north america in the event of a global war. It might sound like a wild theory. But in march two thousand twenty one of video surfaced on the internet showing russian nuclear submarines breaking through the arctic ice sheets. This proved they'd been running submarine drills in the arctic and they weren't the only ones the pin could also be a chinese sub around two thousand sixteen when the ping first appeared the chinese government outlined plans to start using the northern arctic passage to trade more efficiently with north america others have suggested american submarines may be running drills as well ultimately. It's hard to say with these subs come from. Because there's no hard evidence suggesting where they originated or even if they exist and although it has several traits in common with sonar. It's not even clear. If the paying is a sonar wave moreover the fury and hecklers straight would have limited strategic value. It does connect the northernmost arctic seas to the hudson bay. But it doesn't really lead anywhere else. The straight is also dotted with many small islands. That make it difficult. For large cargo ships to easily maneuver the region could only be so useful for.

"In two thousand sixteen. A man piloted his sailboat. Through the fury and hecklers straight in the northern canadian territory of nunavut as he cut through the water his sonar equipment emitted a peculiar sound. It was a single long tone high pitched and shrill to consistent to be run of the mill background noise after a few moments. The sound stopped but it had already kick started a mystery. The sailor was the first person to hear the nunavut ping. We don't know how word spread but soon news of the pain had reached the local at town of igloo. Lick as with many small hamlets in northern canada. A lot of glue lick residents relied on the ocean. They made their living hunting seals and other water mammals and they usually found their prey in the fury and hecklers straight. This waterway boasted an abundance of seals and was free from ice year round but recently hunters had struggled in the fury and hekla straight. Nobody knew why but the animals were disappearing win. The glue lick heard about the ping. They assumed a connection. The southbound must be driving the seals out of the fury and heckler straight even more concerning the ping hadn't done away over the next few weeks other hunters and if few vacationers on yachts detected it as well. If they listened carefully they could hear it through their hall but it appeared clear as day on sonar witnesses described it as a beep abuzz or most commonly ping no one could figure out where it came from

"Four favourite facts from the last seven days and in particular order. Here we go starting with fact number one. That's my fact. This week is that firefighters use ping pong balls to put out wildfires. Do they fire the ping pong ball from enormous ping pong bats. You'll thinking perhaps at the ping pong balls are also enormous on the. Oh yeah were you thinking that the the wind from waving the bats might push out. Well i was thinking of one massive one per wildfire and he just loaded up with water. And then you drop it on. They filled with water. They're not and i should just clarify for the listener. Andy is wrong as well. How do it what this is. In fact is these are little ping pong balls. They call them ping pong balls. I couldn't officially find if they were taken from a ping pong ball bag. But they look exactly the same and they carry the ping pong ball by you. Laughing at fullback. James i saw i was i was laughing at the idea that someone might have invented a specific bag. It's encouraging according to dan stephanie. Nothing is a ping pong has been taken your mate go to table. You've got your you got your you to bring you bowls in a bag blowback pingpong right. I wouldn't usually bring me in voles. I've i've only ever arrived at the table and they've been there. I've never shoot him yet. That my friend has got his own balls and basically you have to be such a pro that you think bringing your own balls is going to improve your game that much. This different color bulls. You're allowed to use different levels if you're is a better for orange bulls. Let's say than the white bull you don't want him getting an advantage. But like james says that does imply you're taking it quite seriously like bring your pool cue to a park and then you do you risk looking like the biggest idiots ever walked into that room. I know a lot. Love people have blue. Green color blindness. You think a lot of people struggled to see the color whites can't see the color orange thing. I always thought added advantage. Pitfall orange bulls with only playing in the snow okay. Myths dispelled excellent. Start to the show. So when i tell you about the actual facts. Which is that. This is used by wildfire firefighters and they fly up in helicopters and the idea. Is that if there's a massive fire you want to contain the fire by fighting the fire with fire. This is a classic thing that firefighters on the ground. They have blow torches dear is that you burn any surrounding would brush whatever it is on the ground and it means nothing can feed the fire. That's trying to escape. Further outside. contain it so they worked out that if you put pong balls up into a helicopter and you injected it with different chemicals and you've created a bomb in the sky by mixing these chemicals live up there you drop them down and by the time they hit the ground. They burst into flames and put themselves out very quickly. So it's a really effective thing so these chemicals potassium permanganate and glycol and it's basically put these chemicals together and they create fire and spent like how rocket engines work they have to chemical then they go together and they turn into flame but potassium permanganate. Which is the main one in these ping pong balls. It's also used to kill fungi on your skin. So you put it on your skin. It creates oxygen which kills the fungi or gems. It's used to treat water issues to keep bananas for longer. It's used to age props in movie sets and it's used to purify ca-came all those different things. Oh multi-purpose not is very cool. It tells me bananas. They're extremely flammable present day or is it is it washed all. Will you get a banana. And it's covered in this stuff. The if i just hold it the way it will spontaneously combust. It's a slightly different things. So it's the oxidisation. So bananas create ethylene. Which makes them ripen. And actually. that's why if you put an with other fruit sale. Make them all ripen. Really quickly but this potassium permanganate will oxidise the ethylene. I'm remove it and so it will ripen lands. It's really cool in these helicopters. Have bull machine that all the bulls assisting in and they already have the potassium permanganate sitting inside it. And when they're getting ready for release they they head down the bull machine to the end where they're all individually injected with the glide club just before dropped so it's live bomb-making basically yeah. Did you guys see the previous methods by which they used to do this because there there was the hell torch which is a helicopter with a hose attached to the bottom of attached to a fifty gallon drum of fuel it feels a bit less precise than using the ping pong balls to be honest. But you do get to be called the burn boss if you are the one flying the helicopter so i'm still slightly confused. You drop the balls. Then they don't ignite they ignite on impact. How come they don't just explode the helicopter. Because it's the chemical reaction takes about twenty seconds for it to ignite within the ball so we'll see you. You really have to send them out really quickly. It's like holding a grenade. It's been led exactly. That's exactly what it is. It's pulling a pin on a grenade and then you love them out of the helicopter so they can actually go and flames before. They've made impact but they fly at such a height that the idea is that once they've landed that's about twenty seconds and then they can light up on the floor so cool and i think on bulls. It used to be incredibly flammable. Anyway there was a change in twenty fourteen and they were made of celluloid. We've talked about satellite before. Because it was used an old cinemas and it was why cinemas kept on setting on fire in the twenty s but same the ping pong goals. And if you go online it says everywhere that back in. The olden days ping-pong was used to just explode into flames mid-match because of the heat of friction and everywhere says this and it is possible if you get hot enough because it is very very flammable and i haven't found a single piece of evidence of a single table tennis match where any balls exploded into flames. You'd have to hit it pretty. Yeah yeah. I didn't know about this thing they used to have in ping pong which has now been banned speed glue. Had you guys out of this now speak. Lou is a special glue that you use on your paddle. You blew the rubber on special blue speed. Glue about half an hour before the match begins. And that's soaks into the layer of sponge between the rubber and the blade. And what it does it makes the racket way more elastic than it. Normally is because the rebels expand in contact with this clue and it stretches out so it's like a trampoline for the ping pong ball every single shot. You play is incredibly effective making you much better a table tennis and it's been banned by the olympics. Two thousand and eight was the last time speed glue allowed and they now have to have official paddle controllers at the olympics to check anyone's dope the paddle. Yeah that's really interesting. You think the opposite glue on your bats. You'd think it would be like one of those velcro and bull games. He played beat. Just stick you if you put it on the wrong side. It's very easy to detect stupid speed. Glue dopers if they decide. Have you guys past. There's a place in holborn. I remember walking past it once. And i was just looking at the wall in london blue plaques which tell you about its history up there on the wall. It says that. This is where ping-pong was invented and patented in nineteen. Oh one yeah it's worth. There's there's a table tennis club on now. Is nicole balance. I think on that. Yeah so like where it supposedly was invented is still where you go to play. It's but i couldn't. I just couldn't find anything online to verify that including bounces on website which seems to have no interest in this remarkable bit of history that is connected to it to be found to bounce. It's a museum. Its aim is to tell you. The history of ping-pong. It's really a place. You go to play games. It's you you don't go to a bowling alley and expect the history the but if it was the home of polling if it was the site of neolithic bowling would be remiss not to use that as part of the publicity materials apart from anything else. Yeah you're right yeah. They should employ us for all of their here. This is a global game. This should be a mecca of location book. That was called everything you know is peng and it was claiming that ping pong is the most widespread of all the sports the most Important than that we have. I mean the guy was bias. He was trying to sell a book on ping pong. Obviously you went for that line. But i do know. It's historically at amazing location. Just me just may okay. This why i have a ball. Begging you guys don't so. I was reading about thirties table. Tennis and there used to be a thing called finger spin which is basically you as it sounds spin. The ball with your finger. That was allowed was that before the rally started on. You couldn't like catch the ball. You know as you were serving you could spend and it basically meant you could have an impossible to return serve and the game became pointless and they had to universally panned out in one thousand nine hundred seven but then there are other changes as well so for example. This is from britannica. They report that slow or defensive. Play used to be hugely popular in the field of ping pong and really just sitting back waiting for your opponent to make a mistake..

You went back into your live journal account and found an entry that you wrote when you were about fifteen or sixteen that stated i'm going to be an illustrator so you stated it way back when that day. How did you feel reading that injury so many years later and seeing how you manifested your reality. I think that when i got accepted to college. And maybe it was just stow declaration of my major. It's actually a very pleasant thing to hear. Because i don't oftentimes get to tap into past me and i guess in a way. I'm thankful for past me's determination and almost blind ambition in wanting to try this as a life. Because i don't know what else i would've done. I feel very fortunate that i've been able to. It's certainly not a career that i was able to do by myself. I had a lot of support and help along the way. I hope to also continue to help others who are interested in doing this as a life as a career. My last question is this when you won the art directors club. Young guns award. You were asked to finish the sentence despite what you might think illustration is not blank. You finish the sentence by stating that illustration is not about illustration so my last question is. What do you think it's really about. I at the end of the day is a job and i feel that these past few years. I've really tried to distinguish the difference between wet. A job is and what my life is. So much of my early years were focused on dedicating my life to illustration rather than trying to set certain boundaries in order to maintain a level of balance in my life and i wanted to be able to continue to be my career and something that i can use as a tool to keep myself alive and also make work. That's interesting and communicates and hopefully inspires people. I guess it's a little complicated these days. But i i hope to shift the scales a little bit on the things that are in my life to in order for this to continue being part of it and also for other parts of my life to also have opportunities to grow. Can you talk a little bit about why. It's become complicated. yeah. I think the fact that i've used a lot of my own experiences a lot of my own thoughts and ideas to make work better or make work good comes at the expense of my own energy and maybe instead of being able to work on a project or something that would be fulfilling for myself. It's then spent on something that's for someone else so it's kind of like finding your personal boundaries between your professional life and your personal life. Yeah well really really look forward to seeing where you go next. And i can only imagine that it'll be wonderful thank you. That's that means a lot and thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me and giving me this chance to hopefully share a little bit about myself absolutely pink..

"Do you get your clients. Do you pursue them. Do they to use a combination of both. I started my career with an agent. And i did that because i thought maybe that was the answer to how to get these clients. That don't know who i am yet. And i don't know if she was my silver bullet in any way. I think i learned a lot about that experience. Just as how. Maybe how. I wanted to run my business more so than who the clients necessarily should be. It's always hard to answer this question. Only because most of the time you never really know how someone saw your work it could be something in the times it could be someone else mentioned your work. It could be so many things. So i was fortunate enough to start my career and the early waves of social media and it was the time when things were still quite pure and people were very interested in other people and seeing how these things work so i was using instagram for taking photos of my food and nonsense things and eventually i was just kind of taking photos of snapshots of drawings that i was making. I was lucky because people started just following me or they would leave comments. I would see their work. We started building these small little friendship groups on social media and i imagined that that had something to do with exposing my work to different groups of people early on but i do think like the editorial realm when i did do a few new york times pieces like maybe two or three new york times pieces later. People were kind of reaching out more consistently than they were in the past. And i think there was definitely a combination of lake luck and taking jobs that were at least had like a blade and big readership. And i also think it's great to have help from your peers. You know like we've pulled our director names before just so that we can all get a chance at sending things out to be able to hopefully get a chance that having them see your work and maybe you if not now then maybe months from now they'll think of you for something that's just the hope so the consistency and in staying on the radar has definitely been something. That's helped me. Jessica hitch the great Illustrator and lettering artist recently did a workshop on pricing which it seems like every designer in the world wanted and needed and tried to take. How have you learned about pricing. Your work can you talk a little bit about for the young designers and illustrators out there that are seeing you as a role model. How do you know how much to charge someone. I actually used jessica's pricing back. When she wrote the article for fast company and i thought it was really helpful because there was really no other information out there like that and since then i think she's made an updated version which is great but a lot of the pricing comes from just the budgets. That are already existing. I find that editorial pricing stays very much within the same brown like a few hundred dollars to a few thousand depending on the size of the peace. And i also think most of the time clarity have a number that they're coming to you with but if they don't a lot of the times i refer back to a job that similar to that or i consider what they're going to be using it for consider if i'm ever going to see it again if i can never have ownership over it again and all. Those things are measurements of. Not just your work but the future work that you could do and also pass work that you've done. It's a reflection of your personal value as an artist which i think a lot. Of the times we devalue or it's hard to stand behind how much you think you're worth so there's a lot of benefit in talking to other and hopefully friends or peers. Who are open about those conversations. There's a great website called light. Box dot info that is a crowd sourced website where illustrators have contributed their information on what they've made for certain jobs and it's you know who the client was that they pay on time. What were the asks so on and so forth and it's a great way for people to at least see what other people have at least made so if you don't have an immediate community of illustrators it's nice to be able to go on there and have a reference point for any of that so talk about your process for creating your illustrations. Do you still work primarily with wash these days. I've actually been working a lot digitally for different products which is nice but the feeling of painting with paint is never going to be replaceable. For me. i work on paper and i keep it as simple as possible really. I have a drawer of paints. And i use a pencil to put my line work. After i've sketched out an idea on the computer printing out those xerox like blind drying and then using a light. Patrick trace it on to the paper that i use. I've also over time have realized it's been easier for me to kind of do a color sketch on the computer with digital colors. Because i don't want to be making those decisions while i'm painting and it's saved me a lot of reduce actually as well so i also have scanned in all the swatches of the paint that i have in order to kind of make sure that digital colors that i'm using in my sketches are the same as the ones that i can actually be produced in person so a lot of fluorescent colors are really great in the computer. They just don't really exist in real life. So i want to train creators realistic of a road map for myself as possible. And then when i moved onto painting the actual thing it's almost like that's when the actual Active just like making the peace. Come together if.

"Nine hundred final months of college. You visited new york city to gather some firsthand illustrator experienced by bringing your portfolio around and not on doors and brian ray had given you the contact information for leeann chapter and the great greatly and chaplain. Who at the time was the art director of the op. ed section. she's also an extraordinary illustrator and she agreed to meet with you. Talk about that meeting and then what happens subsequently lucky that she was willing to meet me. I was so grateful to brian for giving me the context that he had. This is the time before having an iphone or ipad and all that so bringing the physical portfolio felt like. It still made a lot of sense. And i work in painting so all this stuff was like in a classic portfolio is like i look like clipper going to like my i did with. Brian suggested i. I wrote emails. I trusted him and she wrote back to me and she was very generous with your time and said that i could come by the new york times office and show her some work and actually going to the times building felt so it was like a pilgrimage itself. Every time i feel the exact same way no matter how their mecca exactly and she looked as she was earnestly interested in my work. We talked about it. I explained what the projects were you know. Showed her some of the stuff. I did in. Brian paul's class and it was very overwhelming. Anyway so i end up just going home. I think i was leaving new york in like a couple of days and lianne emails me here. I think two days before. I left and offered me a job which was just i mean. Everyone remembers their first jobs. I was i. Didn't i don't even know if i've really read everything that she was asking me to do. I just saw lake. Would you like to and then by this day and just like skim. That email was like yes. Yes yes yes please. Yes and it was for the now non existent op. Ed letters page. It was just like this. Tiny little stamp stamp-sized image. That was a response to people's letters that they had written in. And i think my article was about the difference between reading out loud versus reading in your head or something like that. And so at the time i was very invested drawing animals and using animals as like this kind of connective tissue between articles and like art. So i also learned that. That's not necessarily the most functional way to make illustrations because they don't always translate as far as visuals go. You can't just like put like a burden just because the articles like it has nothing to do with birds and you just want us bird characters as most. Sometimes it just doesn't make any sense. So in this case. I remember sending her a bunch of little sketches and one of them was like this elephant like reading out loud to like a. I don't know like another group of elephants or something which like an image. That's going to be like to buy one inch like. Could you even draw crowd. It was very. I wasn't thinking at all about like what dimensions were like. How much detail would be rendered. I was just excited at the time. She said they were all really cute and nice but that like having an elephant reading could be misinterpreted as something that was like about republican politics or just things that i never thought about and would not have been thinking about so it was really great to have someone who was able to kind of explain to me for the first time that not everything can be used to say. Everything's so you know. I immediately changed all of that to humans instead. Because you know on another level like animals don't free. They had nothing to do with reading. So i ended up making it a scene in the subway because i felt like maybe just as a no march to my new york visit that it would be nice to kind of use the subway as a location where people were constantly reading to themselves. But in this case we're reading out loud to each other or something like that so that was the end of my first job and i felt very much blake. Is this possible. It actually felt possible for the first time because that whole thing wasn't an actual disaster. So what did you parents think. When they saw your first published piece in all things are times they were pretty much like. Oh it is real like this job is real a and it helped confirm a few things for them and my mom bought the paper she also like when i finally did get paid for that job she like made a fake jumbo check and laminated it for me which was very sweet so it was. It was nice. You've stated that there are a lot of similar habits and procedures that you've learned from your work with the new york times that you follow in your other editorial assignments and i'm wondering if you can share with some of those are it's a lot of the same sort of problem solving there's always some context for the illustration there's always going to be dimensional restrictions. There's always going to be things that are director wants. And i think the the process in making an editorial piece varies of course based on whatever the article may be but i i try to use each of those opportunities to explorer like things that i'm interested in or techniques or colors like these tiny opportunities so that might work doesn't all end up looking the same again and again but the way that i figure out how what i wanna make oftentimes involves like a lot of writing and note taking in the beginning just kind of almost were dumping and really rough thumbnail sketching just in order to not continue to think about those things as i'm trying to think of ideas on top of that so i make a lot of lists. I do preliminary sketches. I kind of try and figure out what the color language could be for each of these assignments. Because i feel like half the information is just the emotional connection with the colors themselves and those combinations and how that translates so i also trained gauge. How are directors and clients are as far as what they're looking for what they reference when they are hiring me to do something. Is it something that i've done before. Is it something entirely new or have an opportunity to push my ideas a little bit more until i can abstract realm or should we stay more literal. Can we use animals again. Can we go back to people. It gets a little bit of just feeling it out as much as you can through like an email so you graduated shortly after your first published piece in the new york times and you've been a freelance illustrator. Ever since in that time you've worked with some of the biggest and most prestigious clients and brands in the world. The new yorker google delta coca cola pedagogy pentagram worby parker reebok and so many more. That's just a real shortlist as well as illustrating books and we'll talk about that in a bit..

"Actually in retrospect ya you stated that while you're in school you were constantly apologizing for your work but it's also where you learned to stop apologizing fieldwork. How did you learn that well. That's something. I think. I'm still figuring out to me because it was in part. I felt like i was wasting people's time putting up work. That wasn't good or wasn't strong. This is mainly. Maybe the first two years two or three years. When i was in school and i just i just didn't have any confidence. I had no idea what i was doing. Everyone else seemed very much like they did their research. They knew they had references. They had an understanding of our history. And just just a general perspective. That was much more rich than mine. So i think the apologies just came from like. I'm sorry this is my best work. I'm sorry this is like rushed. I'm sorry i did this wrong. I didn't have time to do this. I didn't i didn't. It was all like things that i could have done or i wanted to do. And it was nothing about what was actually in front of us and there was no conversation. I wasn't opening a conversation about what i was trying to do. And i think that. I probably wasted a lot of moments and critiques. Were just talked about where things could be better rather than like. Imagine this situation around my work. I think people were all there to learn and it took me a while to realize that and growing from that really did help to kind of move past and therefore figure out how to become like this illustrator. What everyone was there for a really with their time in college where you felt equal to your peers or where you began to understand your and your talent or did that come later. I think it's hard to say only because with being young it always kind of felt like i was playing catch up. And it's hard to know if you're seeing equally because somehow it was like everyone's like little sister or like you know trying to fit in with everybody else and that could still be something that i'm working on now to train. Make sure that. I respect my own work and make sure that i could stand up for it and what it's valued at but i i would hope that people saw me as an equal just because it's so isolating on. Its own any way so hard to say. Do you think that sense of yourself. Fueled your ambition. I think so. Because i kind of felt like that. Underdog an away. Maybe no one knew who i was and i could just come out of anywhere. I could go in any direction i didn't. I didn't have a style already or anything like that so in that way. It made me pretty excited to think. Like well i could. I could try other things. I can figure things out along the way while. I'm here but i you know. I think there's a natural competition that you experience when you see a lot of very talented people and you can't help but just either one alike. Follow the the drift. That's behind them just to kind of keep up with them because it was inspiring. It was great to be around people like that. I think a lot of my really close friends are from that time in my life and the age range spans between like people who were the same age as me versus you know people who were like married with children already and there was. It was cool to be able to have that during that time. Talk of the bed class. You attended with brian ray. The former art director at the new york times and the current modern love column illustrator. And your professor at the time. Rogers they are great. They've helped me so much when i was in school. And those are memorable turning points for me. Because i was meandering a lot during my college years where i just wasn't sure you see someone do something great and you want to try and go in that direction and then you kind of loose sense of what you're actually interested in. So i think by the time. I took that class. I think it was a combination of brian and paul being instructors but it was also my a other classmate owen freeman. Who was there. Ta that class really did help. Explain illustration away. No other class had really explained to me before which was oh. Here's something that i'm familiar with. Which is like media newspapers and you can see on a daily basis. Here's our within and here's a very broken down way of making art in order to do this like oneplus to this could be your career at least an entry way into one so i was where a lot of things started making sense. It was like. Oh here's an article. And there's so many articles in this world that need art accompanied with a just like books need covers just like posters. Need information there's all this these applications so it was very much like a real world experience type of class and it was thrilling to be like. Oh i don't know if. I have one day to do this or if i have one week to do this. And maybe i have dilemma. My ideas it was this kind of speedy fund boot camp that i had multiple opportunities to try different things within that context and it was very fun and it was. It was very nice to be able to believe that it was real as well. The class was based around the op. Ed page in the new york times and from what i understand when you're working for the bid page it's an assignment that you have to come up with an idea in two hours dry. Explain it and i think to quote you not lose your head in the process. So i mean whenever i talked to anybody. That's done work for the up ed pages whether it's pulsar or brian. I'm just astounded that. It's actually possible to do something like that to get an assignment be told what it is you have to create an illustration for come up with a range of ideas. Come up with a kick ass idea. Sketch it dry file. It two hours really two hours. It can be quite quick. And i do think that the exciting part was when i was able to make a piece that was based on just something that everyone got it at the same time you know like we were all illustrating the same articles for class and it actually was a nice confidence builder because it felt like we were all kind of starting in the same place. It was almost like this kind of pop quiz. Where are you and how do you see things right so right. It was nice. Because i felt like i could keep up. I felt like i had ideas that were able to make sense in this context and i didn't necessarily have to be like this expert or lived very many years. I was reading this information. And what we're gleaning from. It is just how we're understanding the words and the context and building a scenario from that so it was a mix of course your own understanding and knowledge of things. What kind of metaphor is you could bring in. And i think it was nice because it was validating for the very few experiences that i did have an also things about you know having grown up with like chinese parents. Chinese immigrant parents like other life experiences like that. All of a sudden coming in where it was like language or the way that i saw things or things that i learned from my painting teachers who spoke to me and chinese and metaphors in chinese that made sense language wise. Sometimes there's very strange juxtaposition 's and it's not talking about the thing that it's explaining but it's used in a way to explain a bigger situation and i feel like a lot of this kind of like cut and paste and kind of collage of what i had already on. Hand was what i had as a tool kit for any of this type of work is just that so it was validating and it was confidence building. It was fun and exciting. So yeah i think the time limit thing was actually a positive as well because i think i would struggle with long term projects. I had a week to do it. I'd wait until the last day to do it. You know and all of a sudden you're here under this time. Crunch were two hours was all you had so there was no time to really let your mind wander. You just had to kind of pour out the things that you could think about at that moment and.

"ping" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Called pings. Ping is a very simple message that computers used to test connections between them on a network. It measures the reach ability of another computer. So consider that the Internet is a network of networks and between your computer and some other computer on the Internet. There may be hundreds of machines. Some of them are routers. Some of them are switches. Some of them are computers for your computer to communicate with this target computer. Traffic has to go through the network from your computer to the distant one and then drive. It needs to be able to come back from the target machine to your machine. And a ping is a test to see if such a thing is really possible and measures the round trip time for a message to be sent out from computer, eh? To go to computer B and then return back to computer. A. The name comes from an older technology, which would be sonar in sonar. Where we use sounds underwater to detect objects by listening for echoes. We would send out a sound a ping Or from a speaker essentially underwater, and then we would listen in on a microphone for a returning echo. So you sent out a ping If you get an echo of that, ping, you know there is something out there under the water. That is reflecting that sound back at you. In fact, you may remember in movies like the hunt for October. They talk about this a lot. They use pings in order to send secret messages to each other. But In the Internet. We send out a small amount of data, and then we essentially listen back for its return and use the travel time to judge the connection strength between the two computers are really just how much time does it take for a message to go across the Internet and back again? Mike must created the Ping utility back in 1983 to help test I P network connections. A quick Ping could indicate if there was a connectivity problem If you send out a paying, and nothing comes back, you know there's a problem with that connection if you sell out ripping and it comes back, but it comes back pretty like there's a pretty long gap, and we're talking on the order of Less than a second typically, but it still could be a long gap if you're talking about actually sending real data across the network. Again. I can tell you. Oh, you need to really take a look at your network and see where the problem is. There might be a broken element that you need to replace. It's also a great tool if you want to use bandwidth heavy applications. Because it can indicate whether such a connection is even possible. So let's say that you want to play an online computer game. Maybe it's a multi player computer game competitive. You want to make sure you can find a server that doesn't have AH, along, Leighton See issue between you and the server. You wanna ping Get a good time. And it may be that that's a game that has multiple servers. So you want to find the server that has the best connection between your computer and that server so that you can have the best experience when you're playing. Well, if one were to send an enormous number of ping requests to the same target computer, such as a Web server that target could become overwhelmed by all those requests. It would attempt to respond to each request, which takes up resource is it would otherwise use for normal operations. So let's say a hacker has targeted the website hosting that musicals forum I wanted to pop into And instead of going in there and starting a flame war in the forums, they just start sending ping requests and uncountable number of Ping requests to that forums Host computer, which is trying to respond to each Ping request. Dutiful Lee. I mean, that's what it does. And as a result, the system becomes unstable and crashes and I get an error message. When I tried to go to that forum site, this tactic is called a ping flood. It's just one denial of service tactic. I'll go into a lot of other ones later on. Now, I mentioned earlier how a DDOS attack can be effective by leveraging thousands or hundreds of thousands of machines in a coordinated attack. But how does that happen? How do you get to a point where hundreds of thousands of machines can work together? How does an attacker get control of that many devices will sometimes It happens by people volunteering to be part of this group. There are hacktivist groups that will send out a message and say, Hey, if you want to be part of this movement, you can download the software and then we can use your computer to be part of this attack on whatever the target is. But in other cases, it's happening through trickery. It ends up being a compromise device. Right. So for target computers, a hacker either writes some malware or more likely makes use of existing malware. There's tons of malware that's already been written out there. A lot of the people who use these tactics Aren't necessarily coders or programmers. They are what some folks dismissively referred to as script kiddies. They go and they find Code that will do what they wanted to do that someone else has already written. And then they'll essentially download that and use that kind of as a just an attack package. So they're not having to make it themselves. They're already It's kind of off the shelf hacker sort of software, so They then use this malware to create a way to infect numerous machines, typically by fooling people into executing a file on their computers or their their computing devices. The malware contains a way for the hacker to direct those computers to send messages to a specific target. Then maybe completely automated. You just hit a little button, and then everything does it. You know, the hacker might put in the I P address for the target machine, but otherwise Everything else gets taken care of automatically, and the hacker uses those devices to turn all their focus onto the target machine, And then they bombarded with countless messages. Or the hacker might exploit a known vulnerability and various Internet connected devices such as routers or even stuff like smart TVs or Internet connected thermostats. Essentially the Internet of things and the smart home movement have created the potential for truly enormous coordinated attacks because again they don't have to send Really sophisticated information across the Internet. It could be a simple as pings pings are behind the most basic messages you can send. So if you just get devices that are capable of sending a paying, then you're all set to go. And part of this is because that Internet of things develop faster than companies could create good security measures to protect those devices from people who would compromise them, and part of it falls on the consumer's shoulders. Because a lot of people don't bother to ever update their security settings, right, they'll get a new thing out of the box. They'll plug it into their network, and they never bothered a update the log in and passwords on their devices, So they're using the default settings for their log in and passwords and that can create the opportunity for a hacker. To access those devices if a company is using essentially a the same sort of log in and password for all of its products along a certain line..
