GMail keeps your email safe. HTTPS only (HTTPS support for GMail was added 2008 and default 2010) and 100% encryption on internal data center links. Top that with another year beating the 99.9% SLA.

This is really cool.
 
Technologically assisted speed reading.  Your eyes don't move; the words do. Various forms of this trick, known as Rapid Serial Visual Presentation  have been around for decades. This new tweak uses a constant red letter placement for greater ease of reading. I can do 600 wpm easily. I'd like to try a whole book this way. Has anyone done that?

Privacy in the New Digital Age - Meeting with President Obama

Last week a group from the technology and communciations industry met with the President to talk about the recent government surveillance scandals.  I was fortunate to be one of them, and in a two hour meeting we talked about the nature and importance of privacy in the new digital age. The President, thoroughly familiar with the issues, listened to each and every representative and let us know he will try to finalize decisions in January.  After our meeting his Presidential task force released a report endorsing pretty much the same points we made.  The US and the President have an opportunity to take the moral high ground and show what the limits of government surveillance of citizens in a democracy should be.

Here are the principles we presented to the White House (which form the campaign you find at   http://reformgovernmentsurveillance.com ).  

The Principles

Limiting Governments’ Authority to Collect Users’ data

Governments should codify sensible limitations on their ability to compel service providers to disclose user data that balance their need for the data in limited circumstances, users’ reasonable privacy interests, and the impact on trust in the Internet. In addition, governments should limit surveillance to specific, known users for lawful purposes, and should not undertake bulk data collection of Internet communications.  (Bulk data collection can be misused, leaked and used by the government to track perfectly legal domestic activities.  Advances in machine intelligence can make this much more of an invasion of privacy for Americans.)

Oversight and Accountability

Intelligence agencies seeking to collect or compel the production of information should do so under a clear legal framework in which executive powers are subject to strong checks and balances. Reviewing courts should be independent and include an adversarial process, and governments should allow important rulings of law to be made public in a timely manner so that the courts are accountable to an informed citizenry.

Transparency About Government Demands

Transparency is essential to a debate over governments’ surveillance powers and the scope of programs that are administered under those powers. Governments should allow companies to publish the number and nature of government demands for user information. In addition, governments should also promptly disclose this data publicly.   This information, published legally, will calm down some of the outlandish claims being made by foreign firms and transparency is always a better regulatory approach.

Respecting the Free Flow of information

The ability of data to flow or be accessed across borders is essential to a robust 21st century global economy. Governments should permit the transfer of data and should not inhibit access by companies or individuals to lawfully available information that is stored outside of the country. Governments should not require service providers to locate infrastructure within a country’s borders or operate locally.

Avoiding Conflicts Among Governments

In order to avoid conflicting laws, there should be a robust, principled, and transparent framework to govern lawful requests for data across jurisdictions, such as improved mutual legal assistance treaty — or “MLAT” — processes. Where the laws of one jurisdiction conflict with the laws of another, it is incumbent upon governments to work together to resolve the conflict.

And Ryan Lizza’s history of NSA activity in this area

As well as this interview with Snowden

About time.
 
Definitely too late. 
Summary: Under a little known law, Queen Elizabeth II has pardoned Alan Turing, the computer and math whiz who helped break German code. It’s a posthumous move — Turing died nearly 61 years ago.

Still, too late. Shame on you Great Britain, one of your greatest minds, treated like a criminal for loving the "wrong" people.

Har använt aldeles för många kemtvättar genom åren. Hade jag vetat bättre skulle jag aldrig lämnat in mina kläder till någon annan än Cleaner i Sollentuna. Oerhört professionellt, enorm yrkesstolthet och inte ens dyrt. Till er som inte bor i sollentuna: det är värt att vallfärda hit!
