What next for our PM…!!

First there was planking, then Gangnam Style, now… derp-face. Prime Minister John Key’s latest attempt to win the youth vote included pulling the silly expression with students at Victoria University. He was encouraged by students to make a “derp-face” – defined at KnowYourMeme.com as “an expression sometimes used online to signify stupidity”. (via Key pulls ‘derp-face’ for students – National – NZ Herald News)

The National Security Agency has been monitoring online games including World of Warcraft, Second Life and video games on Xbox Live, sometimes even using undercover agents disguised as trolls or orcs.

Since at least 2007, the NSA and its sister British spy agency the GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) have worried that terrorists might use online video games to secretly plan attacks, drive fundraising efforts or simply communicate on unmonitored channels, according to the leaked documents (.PDF).
