Google+ is letting me post for the first time in days. Here's last Thursday's article on Techno-Liberty, on Sessions' appointment as Attorney General. Tomorrow I've got a piece on connected cars ready to go. Please use those sharing buttons on the blog! (Or here, if you prefer, but shares directly to the blog are better.)

There was a very good reason (from SUP's viewpoint of self-preservation) for LiveJournal's moving its servers to Russia. It's the same reason Russia has permanently blocked LinkedIn: A law requiring data on Russians to be in Russia, on servers with back doors for the government.

I've put the full account on Techno-Liberty. As far as I can tell, no one else had previously put these pieces together in one article.
