How should I get started with programming? Which language should I learn first?

I get these questions frequently. Keep in mind that I only “got started” programming once, and that was a very long time ago during which I was primarily thinking about which girls I liked (since I was 13 years old). But here’s how I think it works, especially for adults coming to programming for the first time:
The best way to get started is to rethink the question to be more pragmatic:
What do you want to make first?
Be specific. The answer isn’t “iPhone apps” or “websites”.

Hackers turn back the clock with Telnet attacks

A new report from Akamai Technologies shows that hackers appear to be increasingly using the Telnet remote access protocol to attack corporate servers over mobile networks.

Akamai, which specializes in managing content and Web traffic, issues quarterly reports on Internet traffic trends. The latest report, which covers the third quarter of 2010, shows that 10 percent of attacks that came from mobile networks are directed at Port 23, which Telnet uses.

The idea of the idea

How do you come up with an idea? That's a question I have often been asked by those outside the so-called creative world.

To be honest, I don't think I have ever come up with one. As far as I can recall, ideas have always come to me. In my opinion, ideas are free-floating bodies in the ether space and one's sensibilities are the receiver -- the sharper the receiver, the easier it is for ideas to get attracted.

Who said there're no viruses on Linux ???

We recently gave you a brief history of viruses on the Mac and as requested by a user we wanted to give you a history of viruses on Linux. Given the tight security integrated into Linux, it is difficult to take advantage of a vulnerability on the computer, but some programmers have found ways around the security measures. There are several free options for anti-virus on Linux that you really should use, even if it isn't always running - a weekly or monthly scan doesn't hurt. Free anti-virus solutions include: ClamAV, AVG, Avast and F-Prot.
