Google Can Now Tell Youre Not a Robot With Just One Click | WIRED

On Wednesday, Google announced that many of its “Captchas”—the squiggled text tests designed to weed out automated spambots—will be reduced to nothing more than a single checkbox next to the statement “I’m not a robot.” No more typing in distorted words or numbers; Google says it can, in many cases, tell the difference between a person or an automated program simply by tracking clues that don’t involve any user interaction.

The Real-Life Community Inside the ‘Abandoned’ Skyscraper From Homeland | WIRED

The luxurious skyscraper, erected in 1990, was later abandoned to the locals and transformed into a unique, self-governing community. The eclectic marriage of squatter’s ingenuity and crumbling architecture has made it a place of fascination, one most recently seen in an episode of Homeland. Photographer Alejandro Cegarra documents the citizens who laid claim to the empty giant, chronicling an unusual community within its walls. via WIRED
