What really interested me towards certain articles was the more human element to them. In the one article about hacking for good, it drew me to the common believe that hacking is a bad thing, when in fact, as demonstrated by the French Hacking Group, can be used against terrorism. It also made me question, to what point does a bad action become a positive and accepted by society. I feel like there is a very fine line here and can be largely based on the society it is in.

The other article about using social media to interfere with the stock market was really of interest to me. First it demonstrated that a mass number of people are influenced by social media, whether the information is correct or not. As well this was a cybercrime that was committed without actual hands on interference pith a system or software. It just demonstrates how wrong actions can take place on the internet in a whole variety of ways.
