This story broke last week, but the Atlantic has the best arguments about why such a simple thing can be so scary.

Its targets extend beyond suspected terrorists—and some rhetoric that the First Amendment would protect is singled out.

LONDON, Oct 28 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday his government was likely to act to stop newspapers publishing what he called damaging leaks from former U.S. intelligence operative Edward Snowden unless they began to behave more responsibly.

Announcement!  +The Powerbase is now offering 1 free Steam game a week, every week, for the next 8 weeks!

Here is the catch...  We pick two games up for grabs every week, and the winner has to choose between them.  You want free games on #Steam ?  Here are the rules:

1.)  +1 this post.

2.) Circle us.

3.) Share the original post.  https://plus.google.com/u/0/116936589869593794919/posts/RtDNgw8TXgs

4.) Reply to this post "all done!"

Pretty easy, eh?  Failure to meet any of these steps with result in a disqualification.  So, what are this week's games?  If we are already in your circles, that's fine.  You may meet the requirements in any way.

Surgeon Simulator 2013 & Dungeon Defenders!

Oh, and one last thing.  We support freedom.  If Steam is not your platform of choice, we will gladly pay your winnings through another vender, like #Ubuntu Software Center, or #Desura .  :)

Winner will be announced this Friday!

These guys still need a lot of supporters to make their target, and I think this movie needs to be made. One of their goals is to make it accessible to non-techies, so hopefully it'll be good material for waking up fans of proprietary software.

As soon as the order was announced, the companies quietly dropped their motion against the FISA court, declining to comment beyond a short prepared statement:
Ever since leaked NSA documents first started popping up this summer, the battle against NSA surveillance has proceeded on multiple fronts: legislators pushing for new laws, journalists pushing for...

Am I correct in assuming that when using *-git packages, there are no updates to be found with a quick cower -u and that makepkg just builds the package from the source as it is in that exact moment? If so, is there a best practice for how often one should usually update these packages?

Luckily I only use two such packages, so keeping an eye on them shouldn't be too much trouble. Thanks.

OK folks here it is. We're launching a crowd funding campaign to create a new Linux magazine that puts the community first. That means we'll donate half of our profits back to the community. There's loads more details on the campaign page:

Am I just imagining it, is there something wrong with my eyes, or does installing Arch, in Virtualbox, with KDE result in the font being somehow difficult to read? At first I thought I was just imagining it, but after a while my eyes got tired and I got a headache. It's a bit difficult to quantify how exactly it's difficult to read. It's not exactly blurry or anything, but it's difficult to focus on. Has anyone else had this?

Can any of you recommend any "big players" in Linux and FOSS in general to follow on Google+? I'm already following Linus Torvalds, Greg Kroah-Hartman and Jono Bacon, as well as the Linux Foundation. Now I'd like some more stuff in my feed.
