mass observation day 12may.

13 May

london 6.27pm 12C cloud saturday 2017

yesterday was mass observation day it seems, when everyone is asked to write a diary of their day and submit it to be archived. if u look back on that day, what would u have seen? it might produced a lot of rambling accounts. haha. or it might show a snap shot of what people are like , doing their day to day activities in this year 2017. of course u can do your own archive and write about your day in your blog. that would be a day of record too. and might be the one that researchers mine in the future to find out what people did day to day. i wont be submitting my account. too lazy. 

last May 12th 2016, i found a carpet.

i have noticed when i go back on my blog and read of what i did at one day in the past; that i dont write things i am interested in now and write things that are uninteresting instead. it seems what i thought important then was not really what i would like to read about now. i wish that i could go back and live that day again but with my future sensibilities so i can be more aware of what and how things have changed.

i find i have forgotten a lot of things of my past. i daresay a lot of momentous things that happened in the past i have completely ignored. or made a fleeting passing mention. this is because either i am so caught up in my own world, that i ignore what goes on around me, or something happened or something discovered that at that time, no one suspects it would be so influential in changing the world. i wonder what new thing that happen now that would change everything in future.

the recent ransomware attack on the nhs part of an all -round- the- world cyberattack it seems is from stolen NSA (national security agency. the US govts secret service) documents .

edited. 9pm found this 

It is not clear who is behind the attack, but the tools used to carry it out are believed to have been developed by the US National Security Agency (NSA) to exploit a weakness found in Microsoft’s Windows system.

This exploit – known as EternalBlue – was stolen by a group of hackers known as The Shadow Brokers, who made it freely available in April, saying it was a “protest” about US President Donald Trump.

A patch for the vulnerability was released by Microsoft in March, which would have automatically protected those computers with Windows Update enabled.

this is now in the public domain, so i guess there will be more of these attacks from now on. though how successful future attacks will be , once security is rammed up by this attack remains to be seen. it seems it is the windows OS that is targetted.

has anyone with a blog been affected? i got a chromebook and i am not affected. nowadays all this virus stories pass me by and i dont have to bother safeguarding myself against it, as it is automatically been taken  care of.

    Wish I had known about this before as it’s an interesting project. I did read a book some years ago about a mass observation project during WWII. Can’t remember the title but it was quite interesting, especially as they did include some information about the participants and what happened to them after they had stopped contributing to the project.
