My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair...
When the Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) first caught the eye of educators in the late 90s and early 2000s, it invigorated hope that education technology might begin to align with the digital age. In fact, these IWBs were respectfully dubbed a “window-to-the-world.” Today, Futuresource Consulting re

This seems to be an abuse of statistics. Not because statistics might get it wrong, though they can but because we have the right to expect that these decisions would be made at a deeper and more considered level than this.

A US District Court ruling that Microsoft must surrender data will have ramifications for US tech companies trying to do business around the world.

Is was a ruling waiting to happen. When those laws came into action is was pretty clear that this was just what was the intention of those laws.
Here in the Netherlands we had the issue of health data being stored by US subcontractors in the Netherlands. All they offered was some kind of side letter saying that they would comply with EU law and not mentioning anything the US laws.
They are not even allowed give information about it, if you read more on the subject.
