i’ve been thinking about making a new topic about how to rule the world ( at the moment its mostly links from wikileaks) but i am interested in crime – i’ve always thought i would make a good/middling criminal. bank robberies that sort of thing. maybe when i’m older.
i came across these two unconnected stories and something clicked in my head (probably from too many dystopian sci-fi novels/movies).
it seems to me that these two stories are the keys to the future of crime. grand scale, complicated logistics, secrecy, technology, profit. and it works. the atm story is actually pretty amazing when you think about it – a half hour window, people across the world working together. the captcha story is a reflection of globalisation. talented, hard working people – taking on giants.
