Friends in the UK: you need to write to your MP on this one.. I know there's always another Petition or letter. The all matter, but I happen to think this one is super important.

'Our' government have decided that they need to pass "Emergency" legislation to authorise wholesale data collection by ISPs because the existing legislation was struck down by the EU Court of Justice as it is incompatible with EU Human Rights legislation. 

So they are ramming though new broader laws with new broad powers without proper debate or any parliamentary scrutiny. 

And there is no Emergency. Smells. Like. A. Stich. Up.

Please write to your MP on this one. It is important.
The Government announced legislation this morning forcing Internet Service Providers and phone networks to carry out blanket retention of your phone calls, your texts, and your Internet browsing history. The plans have the support of the frontbenches of the three largest parties.

HMRC to sell our tax data for "research".  Just like care.data fiasco.  No Thanks.  Petition to sign if you care:
HMRC wants to sell our tax data. It’s dangerous and wrong.

I'm very fond of the Dogecoin community.. Making a useful and heartfelt tipping and donation currency. And not a get rich quick investment currency. So it is great to see the press taking an interest.

If you'd like to play with Dogecoin, comment here and I'll send you a few coins.

And check out the dogecoin subreddit for the community.
Anonymous Twitter users are often associated with trolling the Internet, spreading rumors and promoting hateful rhetoric through their faceless accounts. But that's not the case with user @savethemhood, who just made Twitter history in the coolest wa...

To be lost as a man

Try it:
Be hard, be self-congratulating
Tough and loud Disparaging --
Taking no prisoners

And as one by one
your mates drift away into their own awakenings
There you still are:
Alone,
Woooden-hearted --
A prisoner

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

Oh Piano Minimal

I found Greg Haines after booking for a Greg Haines / Peter Broderick collaboration concert.  And wow.  He's added to the library.

Helping

Cherry red blood
Welling where its head should be
I murdered a beetle

Trying to help
Sweeping it off the tarmac
I lost its head

Nice couple of hours playing with waves at City Beach.  Result: Sand everywhere, half the Indian Ocean up my sinuses and that lovely slack-limbed feeling of good workout in the waves.

It is an amazing day, but there were just not that many people at the beach.  

My big experience of this trip to Australia is just noticing how few people there are around.  Lots of space.  I'd forgotten -- I'm now so used to being packed into South-East England.
