Now this (and things like this) would be awesome if we could get it here.

Want to know where the meth houses were around you or if you're buying one? You can in Indiana!

This is my post of the day. It's actually not a new story as there are similar cases to this in the past and an EFF warning about how not following the terms of service (TOS) of a site may land you in prison.

This is just wrong.

I understand not allowing hacking in a system. But to think that publicly accessible files can still fall under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) even if used by a journalist to do their job as a watchdog is simply frightening.

Heck, I think I dance on that line in some of the things I do with public data. Am I actually breaking the law if the City & County puts a line at the bottom of their site that data cannot be used in other ways than displayed? The answer is yes. Luckily, they haven't pursued open data advocates as I think they would be up for a fight in court... but the CFAA may end up losing that fight for the public.

This is something that needs to be fixed. I tend to think of this like the "open-fields doctrine" of the Fourth Amendment as there is no expectation of privacy if you're leaving something in the open online.

Disturbing to see it used to squelch a legitimate journalistic investigation. First time I've heard of that wrinkle.

I'm throwing this out as the post of the day... and I actually don't think I agree with the piece. However, I'm not going to throw in my thoughts at this time as I want to see the opinions of anyone that's willing to throw their two cents into the fire.

I really do believe this is an important discussion to have about the Internet, social media, and commenting.

I hadn't heard about this yet either. I'm curious what you disagree with in this piece?

A little bit of promotion is too bad, right? Just wanted to put it out there that KHON2 News does have a Google+ page. So if you're so inclined... you can put it into a circle.

Since I'm at +KHON2 News now... we've changed a lot of procedures and are currently going through a complete overhaul of how we're generating content and distributing it.

So if you ever see something you have questions about, don't hesitate to ask.

However, I'll throw in this caveat that there are cases that I won't be able to make comments on if they relate to things outside of my control.

I must admit, I am excited for the programming this season on Fox. And amazingly not just for '24,' which will be AWESOME.

The best of the shows? It's this one, "Nonfiction also is in the works, with a new version of Carl Sagan’s 1980 PBS series “Cosmos,” this one hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and produced by a serious-minded MacFarlane."

What?! Neil deGrasse Tyson is coming to Fox? With Seth McFarlane? AMAZING!

Post of the day, if not the month. Now if you haven't figured it out, I don't post all the awesome stories I read if I think it gives me a competitive advantage. Hey, it's a dog-eat-dog world out there in media. However, I think the question of copyright and what is acceptable use/fair use is an important topic that we all have to understand.

To be honest, all of our parent organizations have their own rules and interpretations of the law. Much of that formed through years of getting into lawsuits from mistakes or misunderstanding.

This post gets into the weeds of how journalists can use, or not use, material that's out there. Just so my media friends don't think I'm crazy, "works prepared by the federal government generally are not copyrightable" has always been my stance and I think that also covers state and county material. Heck, not only are "we" paying for it with our taxes... governments generate a lot material specifically to be distributed (well, except for law enforcement and spy stuff... NSA anyone?).

I believe this is a must read for those in the business and the download is free!

I've been neglecting Google+ for a while as things got a little busy. Just saw from +Ryan Ozawa that things have changed... and they sure have!

Hmm. Not using the mobile app? Haven't tried the web version on my tablets. I probably should!

Just saw a similar announcement from a post from Olin Lagon.

Congrats, Provo!

Why Utah? "The University of Utah in Salt Lake City was home to much pioneering computing research, and was one of the original four nodes of ARPANET, the predecessor to the internet. And, as Google points out, Provo is second in the nation in terms of number of patents filed."

2nd?! Amazing.
