NYU students discover open listserver for 40,000 students and faculty. Let the fun begin…

As NYU explained: “NYU uses something called E-Mail Direct for most mass emails. That system is meant for one-way emailing. E-Mail Direct does not allow for reply-alls, therefore you cannot respond to most mass emails. Several NYU departments still rely on the older, discussion-based ListManager program, however. ListManager also sends mass emails, but allows discussions (in the form of reply-alls), unless the settings are adjusted, disabling group discussions and only permitting emails from admins.” And yeah, someone sent an email using the old ListManager and exposed all 40,000 email addresses of NYU students and faculty. Once the students recognized their newfound powers, the fun began.

Man arrested after trying to board airplane wearing this cool watch – TSA thinks it’s the bomb

Steampunk rears its ugly head again. An Oakland artist and teacher was arrested at Oakland International Airport for wearing a suspicious watch. Geoffrey McGann, 49, was arrested at 7:45 PM on Thursday after airport security found him wearing a watch with wires, toggle switch, and fuses protruding from it. Airport security thought the watch looked like either a bomb or a timing device for a bomb and called in the bomb squad to investigate. After handing the watch around amidst a chorus of “oohs” and “aahs”, the watch was deemed safe and classified by TSA as “pretty cool”.
