Why is it less of an intrusion into my privacy to sweep up all of my electronic data, than to plant listening devices in my home. I think it is just as big an intrusion. #dontspyonme #gchq #drip  
Sir David Omand by Chatham House/Flickr. The increasing use of encryption technologies in everyday emails and messaging services will lead to “ethically worse” behaviour by the intelligence agencies, a former head of GCHQ has predicted. Sir David Omand warned there would be greater intrusion on ...

In fact it is generally less intrusive to the population to plant bugs because placing bugs must, by definition, be targeted at particular individuals, whereas access to everyone's electronic data is directed, potentially, at all of us.

This ends with a great quote:
<blockquote>And what of the entertainment industry and its "piracy" problem? Well, back in 1939, the science fiction writer Robert A Heinlein published his first story, "Life-Line," that contained his truest prediction:
"There has grown up in the minds of certain groups in this country the notion that because a man or corporation has made a profit out of the public for a number of years, the government and the courts are charged with the duty of guaranteeing such profit in the future, even in the face of changing circumstances and contrary to public interest. This strange doctrine is not supported by statute or common law. Neither individuals nor corporations have any right to come into court and ask that the clock of history be stopped, or turned back."</blockquote>
Those pushing for 'solutions' to piracy risk eroding the net's integrity and freedom from surveillance, censorship and control

On Sunday went for a walk and puzzled by patches of yellowing wheat in the field. The patches were perfectly square. My theory is that this was a bag of a different batch of seed, that has matured slightly more quickly that the surrounding wheat.

Love this proper British programming language.
When Rasmus Lerdorf first put PHP together, he - quite sensibly, despite his heritage - chose not to write it in Greenlandic or Danish. Good job too - that would have been rather unpleasant to work with. He opted instead, being in Canada at the time, for the local tongue.
