Are Snowden supporters ready to concede he is an ass?
Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who was granted asylum in Russia, made a surprise appearance at President Vladimir Putin's annual televised call-in session to ask whether the country conducts mass surveillance like the United States does.

+Hayden Coonan *Nothing* gives us the full picture -- that's a silly standard to hold anyone or anything to. In fact, there's no such thing as the "full picture" -- the "full picture" is a platonic ideal that doesn't exist in real life.

Whistle blowers don't give us the full picture. That's true. They do obviously give us a fuller picture than the military and intelligence press divisions. They're also a vital piece of the media's ability to give us anything resembling the full picture.

Would you prefer every news outlet just politely ask the DOJ if they're doing anything illegal on page 1, and paraphrase NSA press releases on page 2?

As long as there are filthy rich and deeply secretive organizations who are in the habit of breaking the law or bending it for unjust ends (which is to say for the foreseeable future) we need whistle blowers and others willing to break unjust laws themselves for the greater good.

The unchecked secrecy of our defense and intelligence agencies is a great threat to freedom and justice. This state of affairs may have been deemed legal, but it is a grave mistake to confuse legality with moral or ethical acceptability -- or to place law above ethics. As MLK wrote: "One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws."

I'd still love to hear how else you think anything can or should ever get out of the black boxes that our defense and intelligence agencies have become. It's easy to criticize whistle blowing, but it's also pointless unless you're offering a viable alternative for finding out what evils the most powerful organizations are up to behind closed doors.

Facebook 2.0
This time not based on predictions but told by Zuckerberg.
I understand what he is saying about small apps being more effective than FB behemoth to accomplish what you want to do.
But Facebook holding power is that you can do everything in there and all the people are in there. If you start breaking up the pieces then you won't hold people anymore. And you are on even foot with everyone's apps.
It looks to me that the FB killer will be from within.
Let's see where we are in a year or two.
