Edit: Looks like I am wrong, the satellite is fixed in orbit :(
I think in the next few hours we will have a clue of the whereabouts of this plane. The picture taken from the new york times website shows where the plane could be after the last signal was received from the plane.
But because this plane was sending signals periodically you should be able to figure out the whereabouts of the plane. As the satellite is not at a fix position the arcs created should hopefully paint a path and rule out some destination due to time and speed of what the aircraft can cover... lets see and hopefully wait for some news in the next few hours when it is morning in Malaysia.
A small update. There was problems with the conversion as I was using an Open Source converter deployed on app engine which was hitting their max daily usage. Now I am hosting this on my own app engine account so now it should be much better.
Look out of version 1.1.4 as this has the new code!
I don't want to speculate but can radar be turned off? If so could someone possibly hijack the plane, turn off radar and then divert the plane somewhere else and land it? It is very weird that they cannot find the plane in the sea especially with good visibility and good weather it just seems weird especially we are hitting near 48 hours when the plane went missing....
An hour long video but worth it. Some main points I took away.
- End to End encryption is basically the way to go, but to make it more adoptable we got to work on better UX designs. I think figuring out a way to verify public keys are indeed genuine and making it easily accessible is key, however that is hard and I am not that smart to figure out how this can be done :)
- Encryption has a solid background in Mathematics and therefore all technology companies should adopt this which will drive up the cost of Mass Surveillance.
- Mass surveillance has not proved that we are stopping more crime. NSA spending too many resource on trying to look at Facebook and Google Database instead of concentrating on good sound intelligence, which could for example prevented the Boston Bombing.
- Security Communities are pissed off, hopefully will lead to better encryption in the future.
But my main takeaway is that you can go for convenience or security. Take Google for example. Google is free and your privacy is not on the top of their agenda as it is AD supported. I don't mind Google having my data because I feel it benefits me, but you are compromising your privacy and security as the government can and issue a warrant for that data. Keep data for as long as you need it is key. In the UK we have the Data Protection Act 1998, but thinking about this I think it will need to be relooked as it may be out of date...
