The Kernel is back. If you just read what it says on top: WE'RE BACK, BITCHES The Kernel's chief executive and publisher, Aydo Schosswald, welcomes readers to Kernel 2.0." Looks like its full of new people who share some kind of kernel knowledge. Top stories are "HOW SILICON VALLEY POWERS TERRORISM", "I POSED ONLINE AS A WHITE SUPREMACIST", "GOOGLIEBERS", "HOW TO GET PICKED UP BY THE NSA", "APPLE IOS7 AND THE PSYCHOGEOGRAPHY OF TECHNOLOGY", "CHAOS ON CAMPUS: ISLAMISTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA".
Kernel has no rivals since no other tech mag tackles the facetious, devious side of the net. Gawker tried it once here but the Kernel invented it.
The magazine seem to have survived past controversies. Some recent tweets:
