Free iPad App from IBM and Eames Office, Reinvents Iconic ’60s-Era Infographic on History of Math

To celebrate the history of math and its impact on the world, IBM (NYSE: IBM) has released Minds of Modern Mathematics, an iPad app that re-imagines a classic 50-foot infographic on the history of math created by husband-and-wife design team Charles and Ray Eames and displayed at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City. The app, which can be downloaded from the iPad App Store, is an interactive vintage-meets-digital experience for students, teachers, and tech fans that illustrates how mathematics has advanced art, science, music and architecture. It reinvents the massive timeline on the history of math from 1000 AD to 1960 that was part of Mathematica: A World of Numbers…and Beyond, IBM’s milestone World’s Fair exhibit.

Using simple seccomp filters

The Linux kernel will (hopefully) soon support „seccomp filter” (or „mode 2 seccomp”). Ubuntu 12.04 LTS has it available now, and Chrome OS will be using it shortly. This document is designed as a quick-start guide for software authors that want to take advantage of this security feature. In the simplest terms, it allows a program to declare ahead of time which system calls it expects to use, so that if an attacker gains arbitrary code execution, they cannot poke at any unexpected system calls.
