The dark side of the web -- exploring darknets | Kyle Terry | TEDxSalem

  • Published on Nov 17, 2014
  • This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The internet is a powerful tool with many layers. Kyle Terry shares his exploration of one of the deepest layers: the darknet.
    Kyle Terry was destined to become a computer historian. Having worked as a systems administrator, software engineer, and senior devops engineer, he's explored many aspects of computing and is qualified to speak on a broad range of topics. See his history of the internet presentation here:
    About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

      @ST- -MD lol the question is do you think all Creator's are being paid the same or what they should be I'll answer for you no they aren't and if a video has adds it is gaining revinew for TVclip not just the poster and fyi the creator is not even then poster half the time my point still stands if there are adds there is greed.

      Any video with ads is a product.
      A product somebody created.
      Created to entertain and/or inform.
      Research, production value, presentation, editing and processing.
      If you begrudge an ad here n there, then you're saying people shouldn't get paid and TVclip should cease to exist.
      If you're saying that, then you're also saying people who put time, money and effort into creating videos don't deserve some level of payment.
      Any channel with 1k+ subs qualifies for monetization.
      How does it affect you negatively? Apart from either skipping or simply letting the occasional ad play out?
      How is that a problem in your life?
      The only reason it could be an issue for you is that you're just envious and bitter that you're not making money from TVclip - that is the only thing.
      You need to get a better job or try harder with your channel. You only need 999 more subs and to produce actual videos instead of hosting successful channels' videos on yours.
      Don't be sour. Jealousy isn't an attractive trait.
      Work harder. Get better. And stop resenting others for making money.
      Also, here's a big "the more you know" insight for you...
      Even channels that aren't monetized are having ads put on popular videos by Google. This is because Google still get ad revenue, even if the channel doesn't qualify for Adsense or simply hasn't activated it.
      This is also a part of why we now see an unskippable 16+ second promotion and potentially 2 more skippable ads more often.

    The people who code Tor at this point couldn't be more disassociated with the current corrupt government, and couldn't be more anti-police-state. An experienced hacker offered me his service through the deep web. Ever since I have been finding unsual way around everything tech.
    This hacker executed various tasks for me based on Web ( HTML, PHP, SQL, APACHE), C/C++, Assemble, Delphi, 0day Exploits, highly persornalized Trojans and boots and DDoS. You can hire him for any kind of website hacks, phone hack or phone spying, email hacks and credit card/bank hacks. All you need is to be discrete and text his email

    Labor pains is how it will be, happening sooner and sooner each day. Becoming more fierce just like labor. Let me tell you because I have had a child and I understand about labor pains. Love your videos as always, keep spreading the news. Just as a child will come so will be Jesus Christ.

    lol all the comments saying IF THE GOVERNMENT FUNDS IT I DONT TRUST THE PRIVACY. You don't understand how Tor, VPNs, or encryption works. The government also funds public roads, they dont know if you speed on a country road

    Why does ' an ostensibly 'intelligent person scar/mark themselves with all that tribal graffiti ?
    Privacy is a hopeless myth/wish. When you close your bathroom door...that is as close as you can get if you remain silent. No soliloquys ; e.g., "Of course, I killed them all", (R.Durst)

    If you're worried about reading a webpage in your own home, because it might be "too leftist", then you should just stop calling yourself "the land of the free", it feels like it is meant sarcastic.

    Why can't anybody who's trying to communicate something to the General Public do so in a way that appeals to them? He did not explain how the darknet is secure. He just said it was. Like we are going to believe that? I'm so sick of this s***. Does anybody out there have an IQ above 100?

    The deep web is a term used for pages that you normally can’t acces from a search browse.
    Whereas the dark web is what you’re talking about, tor, .onion sites, etc.
    Please get your terms right.

  • Stand up for GOOD

    Its where all the Senetors and Hollywood producers go to get their kiddie kicks.
    Dont worry, because SOPHIA learned on the dark web first, now "shes" moved into the regular internet.
    Every message, text, email, video, picture anyone has ever sent, she has record of it.
    Why is Drumpff draining the swamp ?? And who are the monsters ??
    We will soon know, and it will be shocking to most, but Not us woke folk.
    Qanon knows, but who is Q ?? (Hint...JFK will be avenged))
