The insanity continues...

How's your legal expertise? "A typical smartphone might be covered by some 250,000 patents."
Tech companies and law school professors argue the design patent laws are outdated.

Some Twitter-talk about race & religion for MLK Day.

Alvaro Bedoya

Across our history, people of color have been the disproportionate victims of unjust surveillance. Justification? National security.

NYPD (with CIA help) tracked thousands of innocent Muslims in bookstores, cafes, places of worship.

And yet our surveillance debate doesn't touch on this. It's Edward Snowden vs. the military; national security vs. the hackers.

Every day we hear about the power of surveillance. We are losing sight of its victims. We are losing sight of the color of surveillance.


Dave Aitel

"we need backdoors on phones so minorities can't organize" is a bad sales pitch though

A safety inspector "does not have a valid need-to-know" if he or she plans to use that information "for regulatory purposes."
There's a reason you never hear about major hacks of power plants, manufacturers and banks. Federal law keeps them secret.

This explains it well.

"Imagine if government said every safe should have a standard second code, in case cops want in. That's the encryption debate right now." ~Justin Pot

The UK's Parliament has to legally debate banning Donald Trump from the Country because so many Brits are appalled at his antics.

First the post that claimed to have brought peace to Syria in 2015. (Waves to George "Mission Accomplished" Bush.) Now we have this nice PR recovery BS.
A spokesman said "the operative word is bringing, not brought."

Ahhh. Trump mimics Palin in attracting psychos to his campaign. 😃

A post on his Facebook page said he would follow Trump “to the end of the world.”
A neighborhood in Richmond had to be evacuated Sunday when police say a man was making explosives in his home with the intent of harming the Muslim community.

"Concerned about the militarization of law enforcement, a source within the intelligence community has provided The Intercept with a secret, internal U.S. government catalogue of dozens of cellphone surveillance devices used by the military and by intelligence agencies. Some of the devices are already in use by federal law enforcement and local police forces domestically, and civil liberties advocates believe others will eventually find their way into use inside the U.S. This product catalogue provides rare insight into the current spy capabilities of local law enforcement and offers a preview of the future of mass surveillance of mobile communications."

If the FBI is successful in revoking the use of encryption by citizens & businesses in the US, how many people at the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. will that put out of work? How much of the $53 billion spent by these security services will be returned to the government's coffers to be use for social and infrastructure programs?

And how much will sales of playing card decks (and other tools for by-hand encryption) go up?
