A picture from Ormoc just a few days when Haiyan hit. This is from the pier where other volunteers were bringing relief goods (was helping out in private capacity along with some other friends).

A week ago, we went to Bantayan island to help distribute relief goods to people affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan. This sunrise photo I took there reminds me that despite of bad things happening, there is always hope.

Just. Awesome.
For some reason, this seems to be The Week of Awesome Videos!
If you haven't seen this one yet, YOU MUST. 

Admittedly, not really being up on my quantum physics, I don't understand about 90% of what he's saying, BUT HE DOES IT SO WELL THAT IT DOESN'T MATTER. 

So THERE. ;-)

In conversation with some of my American friends, I have listened to them express in despair how nobody cares enough to do something about the worsening situation with regards to human rights in the USA.

The wonderful thing about humans, is that when most pressed they will come through. Meet Ladar Levison, an American who has run Lavabit LLC on US soil for the last decade, providing secure online communication services for people. And today? Well, here's from Lavabit's current home page:

"I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit. After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations."

Here is a person making the difficult but right stand. His company is even taking this thing to court to fight it out. Mr. Levison takes on Washington ..

In the meantime, he has this suggestion:

"This experience has taught me one very important lesson: without congressional action or a strong judicial precedent, I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States."

This is only a stop-gap measure, however; the US must reign itself in and address it's inability to respect the very human rights that inspired its founding, its Constitution and some of its greatest moments in history.

There is a donation link on the Lavabit page now in case you'd like to help out with the legal expenses they will incur standing up for what is right.

I actually agree.
Very interesting opening keynote at #Akademy 2013, by +Eva Galperin (of #EFF ) about the surveillance of the NSA to non-US persons. #KDE #Akademy2013
