A List Apart

by Harry Brignull

November 1, 2011

We might not like to admit it but deception is deeply entwined with life on this planet. Insects evolved to use it, animals employ it in their behavior, and of course, we humans use it to manipulate, control, and profit from each other.

With this in mind it's no surprise that deception appears in various guises in user interfaces on the web today. What is surprising, though, is that up until recently it was something web designers never talked about. There was no terminology, no design patterns, and no real recognition of it as a phenomenon at all. If it wasn't a taboo it certainly felt like one.

An expanding text area is a mutli-line text input field that expands in height to fit its contents.

This UI element is commonly found in both desktop and mobile applications, such as the SMS composition field on the iPhone. Examples can also be found on the web, including on Facebook, where it's used extensively. It's a good choice wherever you don't know how much text the user will write and you want to keep the layout compact; as such, it's especially useful on interfaces targeted at smartphones.

Unlike the web, which often feels like aiming for next week, architecture is a discipline very much defined by its permanence.

A building's foundation defines its footprint, which defines its frame, which shapes the facade. Each phase of the architectural process is more immutable, more unchanging than the last. Creative decisions quite literally shape a physical space, defining the way in which people move through its confines for decades or even centuries. Working on the web, however, is a wholly different matter.

Are cops constitutional? In a 2001 article for the Seton Hall Constitutional Law Journal, the legal scholar and civil liberties activist Roger Roots posed just that question.

Roots, a fairly radical libertarian, believes that the U.S. Constitution doesn't allow for police as they exist today. At the very least, he argues, police departments, powers and practices today violate the document's spirit and intent. "Under the criminal justice model known to the framers, professional police officers were unknown," Roots writes. The founders and their contemporaries would probably have seen even the early-19th-century police forces as a standing army, and a particularly odious one at that. Just before the American Revolution, it wasn't the stationing of British troops in the colonies that irked patriots in Boston and Virginia; it was England's decision to use the troops for everyday law enforcement.

A New York judge who says a police officer struck him after apparently mistaking him for a heckler is blasting Queens District Attorney Richard Brown for refusing to prosecute.

Judge Thomas Raffaele claims Brown is orchestrating a cover-up, the New York Law Journal reports. A press release explaining the refusal to prosecute is full of falsehoods, Raffaele told the publication. "Everything they say is a lie." Raffaele has said the incident occurred on June 1 when a crowd had gathered as officers were making an arrest. One officer was ramming his knee into the back of a screaming handcuffed man, and the crowd was jeering, according to Raffaele's account. One officer appeared to be getting angry, and he ran toward the crowd and began hitting people, Raffaele said. Raffaele said he was the first one hit in "a full-force, open-hand blow to the front of my throat."

Several states with high unemployment rates are outsourcing their food stamp services to call centers in India, angering many residents.

Americans have never liked the idea of jobs going overseas. But for many, it's more offensive when taxpayer dollars -- including those in the federal stimulus plan -- go to create those jobs. And when those jobs deal with food stamps, unemployment insurance and other public benefits, well forgot irony, to many it's just downright plain insulting.

A foster couple is accused of taking in thousands of dollars meant for child care and spending it on themselves.

They are also accused of trying to collect more money after the children had left their care. Over the past six years, Purcell and Laverne Johnson were trusted with taking care of nearly 90 foster children in their Riverside County foster home. For that, they were paid a salary of $144,000 a year.

Anyone can say they're part of Anonymous. It's the perfect cover for hackers with motives more sinister than fun and propaganda.

Could that be why private intelligence firm Stratfor was just hacked? The Operation AntiSec collaborators Anonymous and LulzSec dominated media coverage of online security through 2011, taking credit for hacks of Sony, AT&T, the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency and News International newspapers - even though the more serious cybercriminals continued working on the money-spinners. The Stratfor hack looks like all the others. It was announced via Twitter accounts associated with Anonymous. Samples of the pilfered data were posted online as evidence. The hackers taunted the victim about its pathetic defences. And the data vandalism was dressed up as political action.

They say they're calling from Windows Support and that your computer has been sending error messages. All you have to do to fix it, they say, is follow their directions.

Scottsdale resident Linda Hard answered a call like this a few months ago. "I want you to go to the start button and pull up your program list," was the first thing they told her to do. But, that's as far as they got with Hard. "At that point, I said 'this is a scam and I'm hanging up,'" she said. "But there are people out there that wouldn't know it's a scam." And lots of those people have been falling victim to it.
