“One year ago, we learned that the Internet is under surveillance, and our activities are being monitored to create permanent records of our private lives — no matter how innocent or ordinary those lives might be. Today, we can begin the work of effectively shutting down the collection of our online communications, even if the US Congress fails to do the same. That’s why I’m asking you to join me on June 5th for Reset the Net, when people and companies all over the world will come together to implement the technological solutions that can put an end to the mass surveillance programs of any government. This is the beginning of a moment where we the people begin to protect our universal human rights with the laws of nature rather than the laws of nations. We have the technology, and adopting encryption is the first effective step that everyone can take to end mass surveillance. That’s why I am excited for Reset the Net — it will mark the moment when we turn political expression into practical action, and protect ourselves on a large scale. Join us on June 5th, and don’t ask for your privacy. Take it back.”

A month or so ago I realized the community needed some nice interactive maps of KSP bodies, and decided it might make a fun side project. Some time last week I uploaded the last of the maps and made an announcement forums and the subreddit. Here it is, in case you missed it.

Guenther makes a good case against the floppy as a symbol for saving. I'm still undecided on the premise of his argument, but I'm not at all a fan of his proposed icons. Please comment on original post, some decent discussion going on there.
New blog article by +Guenther Beyer:

Floppy – Happily Saving Since 1980
An Iconic Proposal

http://blog.opoloo.com/articles/floppy-happily-saving-since-1980

Why in the world do we still use an outdated metaphor for a process so fundamental as “saving”? We should not grow accustomed to things so much that we become unable to question them. It makes progress and imagination harder to achieve. Here is a proposal, a case for change.
