Anonymous: the biggest Internet shit storm EVER!

Remember, remember the 5th of november
the gunpowder, treason and plot.
I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.

November the 5th,
Hadopi vs anonymous
The biggest Internets shitstorm EVER.
For great justice (and lulz)

We are anonymous.

We are Legion
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

Expect us...


NASA about to announce prove for extraterrestrial life?

While everyone is talking about Wikileaks and Julian Assange there seems to be some way much bigger news in the making. Just a few hours from now NASA will hold a press conference with the goal to:

"discuss an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life. Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution and future of life in the universe."

Where science meets art

This would be a nice picture for the category "But what is it?", but we spare you the frustration. This is the winning picture of the Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition® which recognizes outstanding images of life science specimens captured through light microscopes, using any magnification, any illumination technique and any brand of equipment.

Basically this is a competition for another kind of geeks, the ones really handy with microscopes, light and photoshop and a special interest for the extreme small specimens on this earth. You're looking at a frontal section of Phalangium opilio (commonly known as Harvestman or Daddy longlegs) eyes, an ordinary animal you probably wouldn't pay much attention to. As a geek freak I'm now wondering if I should buy a microscope, I mean how cool is this?!

Anyway, it just reminds me there's beauty all around us everyday but most of the time we (at least I) fail to notice it. Check the other amazing pica's here.

Power to the engineers!

Who says you gotta be an entrepreneur to hit the jackpot, strike the mother load? No need to risk your money, reputation and marriage on a risky stressy startup. Check this. Google offered one of their engineers $ 3.5mln in restricted stock (meaning he can't sell until he met the requirements of the agreement) to not go work for Facebook. The unknown engineer probably put on his pokerface, faked a long thought process, hesitated a bit before "reluctantly" accepting the offer.

Clearly Google is getting really tired of people wanting to make a move to Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin and has now resorted to some major muscle showing. This following a particular case where a Google engineer, earning $ 150.000 per year, declined a 15% salary raise and shares worth $ 500.000. So after that loss Google decided it was enough and made the next guy an offer he couldn't refuse.

So what's next? On Linked in someone raised the question whether Google was right to do this. Impulsive I wanted to react "Of course!" but when you think of the consequences.... We all agree that $ 3.5mln is a lot of money, enough to make people go crazy, to make people jealous and to change their agenda. As Arrington said: "such measures may be effective to retain staff, but may damage the moral atmosphere in the company."

Well, we say "Power to the engineers!" The guys that make it happen, your time has finally come! Credit where credit is due! Guys at Koprol and Kaskus, applying at Facebook here, Linked in here and Twitter here. Good luck!

To all our own much appreciated and valued engineers: Forget it. No way. NOT GON-NA HAP-PEN! Sweet dreams and be in at 9:00 or we cut your salary (Potong Gaji, mengerti?)!


[NSFW] Geeks love fashion!

A recent wild guess reliable survey by Sangatpedas shows that 89% of our visitors loves to spend their time watching women fashion. Just walking around in the Tokobagus office I noticed our male colleagues taking an interest in fashion, mainly women fashion but that must be a coincidence. Our support department is diligently moderating and nurturing our fashion category (which is now the biggest one out there) to make it the best of the best , thanks guys for your unselfish efforts!

Anyway, with the weekend coming up who are we to deny you the latest trends, the creme-de-la-creme, the cream of the crop? After all, Sangatpedas is all about shamelessly providing the information our readers want, so what the heck, maybe we can even welcome some more female readers.
