Here's some guidance on sensible handling of passwords from the British government - from GCHQ, in fact.  Debunks a few myths.

That's very good. It covers a lot of areas where I've banged heads with data-centre and general company managers.

Europe votes to break the Internet.

This ensures that US companies will continue to increase the number of sites which block European access.  And while this may be seen as a (sole) positive reason for leaving the EU, I dare say that many US companies are sufficiently hazy about the difference between the EU and the continent of Europe that the UK will continue to be blocked as if it were in the EU even if we leave.
