When the U.S. really pisses off Switzerland, well, umm... ... I'm kind of assuming that's pretty hard to do.

Switerland's Common Sense Recommendation: “Take all necessary measures to ensure an independent and effective oversight by all Government branches of the overseas surveillance operations of the National Security Agency, especially those carried out under Executive Order 12333, and guarantee access to effective judicial and other remedies for people whose right to privacy would have been violated by the surveillance activities of the United States."
On Monday, US officials went before the gathered United Nations Member States in Geneva and were greeted with a message that was loud and clear: all surveillance, no matter where it takes place or whose data it involves, must comply with human rights law. As Congress and the Executive Branch ...

I periodically watch this music video just to remind myself: same problems, different decade. Shouldn't we be further along with solutions to some of these major issues?

Hacks/Hackers launches global program for media entrepreneurs

A new initiative called Hacks/Hackers Connect launches today, aiming to offer a series of free one-day events for media entrepreneurs.

The program is a partnership between Hacks/Hackers and the News Lab at Google, and aims to support journalists and technologists by enabling them to learn from each other and receive mentoring from key figures in the industry.

"Our aim is to spark the next generation of media start-ups", said Burt Herman, co-founder of Hacks/Hackers.

The idea behind the project is to give people who are passionate about innovation and the future of media a chance to interact easily, whether they are "start-up veterans who've been in the trenches" or people with a current job looking to bring an idea to life.
...
"We need the things that journalism did in order to have a functioning democratic society", Herman pointed out, "even if the future doesn't look like what conventional journalism looked like in the past."

Nice!

"We’re excited to team up with Google to bring Twitter’s unique, real-time content to Google’s search results. Starting today, U.S. users searching in English will see relevant Tweets in their search results within the Google app (iOS and Android) and mobile web. The desktop web version is coming shortly, and we have plans to bring this feature to more countries in the coming months."

Secretary of State John Kerry said: "The fact is, an individual’s aspiration to be free may be the most single powerful force on Earth. It’s an aspiration that may be able to be slowed sometimes, maybe intimidated sometimes, it may even be eliminated temporarily by violence in certain cases. But I’m telling you its power within the human soul is so infectious that it will always resurface in one form or another, even in the most extraordinary circumstances.

And history – history has proven that again and again and again. Throughout history, we have seen that men and women will do whatever it takes to find a way to make their desire for freedom known. We saw that with the authors of the pamphlets that helped to spark the revolution that gave birth to my home country in the 1700s. We saw it with the dissidents writing newsletters and producing radio broadcasts behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. And we see it today, in places all over the world, where young people are challenging injustice – armed only with their smart phones.

The internet is, among many other things, an instrument of freedom. It’s a tool people resort to in response to the absence and failure or abuse of government. So of course, some leaders are afraid of it. They’re afraid of the internet in the same way that their predecessors were afraid of newspapers, books, and the radio, but even more so because in this case, because of the interactivity that allows for a free-flowing discussion and the exchange of views – activities that can, and often do, lead to change."

Most companies would have just rolled over.  Google didn't.  Good.  Very Good.

"[W]e can now confirm that we challenged 19 NSLs and fought for our right to disclose this to the public. We also recently won the right to release additional information about those challenges and the documents should be available on the public court dockets soon."
