This is NO joke

"The UK is reportedly considering legislation that would require service providers to share web browsing, email, and phone calling data with the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) in real-time. The British government's Home Office (responsible for anti-terrorism and crime prevention) confirmed that this legislation could be introduced as "soon as parliamentary time allows." The GCHQ can't currently access the contents of people's emails or calls without contacting a service provider with a warrant. However, these new laws would require ISPs to share who people contact, how long the are in contact for, and what websites users visit — the contents of specific messages would remain protected without a warrant."

Zumindestens als "Produzent" von freier Software finde ich die Argumentation gut.

Nils: ja, das hatte ich schon gesehen. Finde es aber weiterhin erwähnenswert.

The ways to Frankfurt


Frankfurt am Main is relatively close to the center of Germany.

The ways to reach it are

* By airplane

If you come to YAPC::Europe from somewhat abroad, taking an airplane to [Frankfurt Airport]( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfurt_Airport) (IATA code "FRA") is the recommended way of getting to Frankfurt. It is the central hub of Lufthansa / Star Alliance and serviced by many other airlines as well. The airport is about 30 minutes away from the city center by train. Another airport , somewhat misleadingly named [Frankfurt-Hahn Airport](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfurt-Hahn_Airport) is located at almost equal distance from Frankfurt am Main and Luxemburg, but is serviced by airlines that try to avoid the landing fees at Frankfurt Airport. A bus dives from there to Frankfurt Central Station ("Hauptbahnhof") in about two hours.

* By train

Many trains go through Frankfurt am Main. Of the three stations, "Frankfurt (Main) Hauptbahnhof" (Central Station) and "Frankfurt (Main) Südbahnhof" (South Station) are in or near the center of the city. The airport railway station "Frankfurt (Main) Flughafen Fernbahnhof" also has some ICE trains passing through and you can reach the city within 20 minutes by switching trains there. Arguably the best site to plan your train journey is [http://bahn.de/] , which even offers itineraries (but not fares) for foreign countries.

* By car

Frankfurt is close to the A5 , A3 and A66 highways. You will likely have little problem getting close to Frankfurt with your car, but make sure that you pick the right Frankfurt in your GPS navigation system. For driving into Frankfurt City you will need to have an "Umweltplakette", a green sticker that tells the cops that your car is "environment friendly". You can buy such stickers at [this website](http://www.umwelt-plakette.de/foreign_cars.php). Getting caught in Frankfurt without it will cost you EUR 40, which you as a foreigner likely have to pay on the spot.

The airport is about 13 (not 30) minutes away from the city centre by S-trains (lines 8,9).

I'm amazed at the production value on this parody ad!

Pro oder Kontra #ACTA?

„Die ACTA-Befürworter müssen die Frage beantworten, in welcher Gesellschaft sie leben und wie sie die geforderte strenge Rechtsdurchsetzung konkret durchführen wollen. Ohne einen Überwachungsstaat wird dies kaum möglich sein.“ schreibe ich im folgenden Gastbeitrag fürs Handelsblatt:

http://www.handelsblatt.com/meinung/gastbeitraege/acta-diskussion-in-welcher-gesellschaft-wollen-wir-leben/6361756.html

Aber der Vorplapperer vom Heveling – CDU-MdB Günter Krings – meint, ACTA sei unvermeidbar, ohne zu sagen wie er seine Forderungen konkret umsetzen will:

http://www.handelsblatt.com/meinung/gastbeitraege/acta-diskussion-meckern-maulen-und-motzen-reicht-nicht/6361700.html

Leider baut seine Argumentation im Wesentlichen auf falschen Unterstellungen und Sachen, die ich nie behauptet habe. Eine Rhetorik, die ich bei der CDU häufig antreffe …
