I agree with @Steve_Lockstep here. That yarn was focused on technical security risks in response to arsehats. twitter.com/Steve_Lockstep…

@brettrann And to say that makes me realise they don’t need names. There’s enough data in a Census record to re-identify most of them.

via TweetDeck in reply to brettrann

@brettrann I know they’re hashes, but of what, exactly, I don’t know. And when names and genders change, what then? Hash with other answers?

via TweetDeck in reply to brettrann

@semibogan @snare I’m sure that’s the case, yes.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@semibogan @snare Yes, the ol’ slip $50k to a junior staffer is probably still effective.

@darkhorse166 That is one very weird coincidence.

In Victorian times, London ran a Cat Census to find and fine households without adequate protection against rats and mice.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I’m tempted to start making up some to see how far the disinformation spreads.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“When the Romans took over Judea in 6CE, the legate Publius Sulpicius Quirinius organised a census for tax purposes.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“The Domesday Book was undertaken in 1086 CE by William I of England so that he could properly tax the land he had recently conquered.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

That is to say, a Census was about enforcing government powers, not “research”. Hence the compulsion and penalties.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

That was the Roman Census. In ancient Israel, God commands a per capita tax to be paid with the census in Exodus 30:11-16.

The Census began in Roman times to “track all adult males fit for military service” en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Census twitter.com/LiamPomfret/st…
