[REBOL] More scary Morpheus "news" coverage

From: joel::neely::fedex::com at: 20-Mar-2002 6:37

Slashdot is carrying a purple-prose cover to the story at the following link: which has the headline: Morpheus gives Web surfers a detour and reports that ... it has begun installing a Web browser add-on that sends some Morpheus users on an invisible Web detour aimed at capturing data about file swappers' surfing habits. ... the affiliate program that sends Morpheus users to participating shopping sites will provide them with some reward in return. He [StreamCast Chief Exec Steve Griffin] declined to give any further details, however. ... By invisibly inserting the redirect into Web surfers' browsers, StreamCast can make it look like it is referring traffic to shopping Web sites without the shopper ever being aware that the Morpheus technology was involved. Given the increasing level of out-rage/-cry being raised over such tactics, I hope this isn't being done with REBOL, and that nobody in the press pushes a connection between Morpheus and REBOL at this point. -jn- -- ; Joel Neely joeldotneelyatfedexdotcom REBOL [] do [ do func [s] [ foreach [a b] s [prin b] ] sort/skip do function [s] [t] [ t: "" foreach [a b] s [repend t [b a]] t ] { | e s m!zauafBpcvekexEohthjJakwLrngohOqrlryRnsctdtiub} 2 ]
