Not a New Deal Kind of Democrat Why build schools or reasonable housing when you can build walls, dig moats and pour boiling oil on your neighbors? While recommending corporate tax cuts and raising the age of social security, senator Warner said,
The walls that are gonna have to be built, may not be at borders, they may be around neighborhoods the way they are in many Third World countries around the world

Bernie Sanders wins the #IndianaPrimary  Donate to celebrate! http://BernieSanders.com/donate/

With 71% reporting Bernie is ahead by over 6 points 53-47%. This is a DRASTIC turnaround from the initial results that had Clinton ahead with 65 then 55% of the vote. http://www.nytimes.com/elections/results/indiana

If you've been watching the corporate media tonight you might not have heard about this since they have once again been doing a #BernieBlackout . They gave less than a minute to his speech in #LouisvilleKY  then went to an empty Ted Cruz podium for over an hour before Cruzifiction himself came up to suspend his campaign, which soaked up another hour of broadcast time. Ignoring Bernie when the results come in in his favor has happened over and over this year and is part of a broader pattern by this establishment oligopoly to to sabotage Bernie's anti-corporate movement: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/12/07/donald-trump-has-gotten-more-nightly-network-news-coverage-than-the-entire-democratic-field-combined/

Also note that 538 once again got it wrong. They gave Clinton between a 7 and 11% lead in the polls (polls only and polls plus forecast), and a 90% chance of winning. They continue to give Clinton double digit leads claim there are insurmountable margins (which has the effect of suppressing turnout, volunteering, and donations): http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/election-2016/primary-forecast/indiana-democratic/

Another Free From the Firmware Up Laptop Libiquity's X200 cost less than $500, so I bought one. It performs better than an X61s and is the first Thinkpad I've had in a long time that is cool enough to sit in my lap.
Libiquity X200 Goes to Work. As nice as the X60 is, I broke down and bought a Libiquity X200. This is the first Respects Your Freedom Certified Laptop sold in the US. As the name suggests, it's a X200 Thinkpad that has been carefully refurbished with Libreboot, free software friendly hardware ...

I hope they get better and better (and not more expensive).
But remember we have been told Intel processors have, now, "black boxes" with potential spying tools, inside.

I just googled May 3, because it's my birthday, and found this awesome event that is so perfect for my birthday I almost can't believe it: https://www.defectivebydesign.org/dayagainstdrm/
On Tuesday, May 3, 2016, our global community will come together to celebrate ten years of the International Day Against DRM. We'll be gathering, protesting, making, and sharing, showing the world and the media that we insist on a future without Digital Restrictions Management. Will you join us?

Systems designed to track and spy rather than protect  See also the universal back door almost all cell phones have,
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/android-and-users-freedom.en.html
thanks to the radio control computer, you can't protect yourself by replacing your phone's software, which contains additional spyware,
http://www.gnu.org/proprietary/proprietary-surveillance.en.html

Intel and AMD have made all x86 as bad as cell phones by adding small, non free computers for hardware management.  The thing being managed is the user.  
https://libreboot.org/faq/  
The FCC has recently required wifi access points be locked down with non free software too. 

These are appalling developments that must be rejected.  Had people understood the harm non free software would do, they would have rejected it decades ago.  Visit the FSF's Respects Your Freedom hardware program to find hardware you can own and trust.  
Reports show that hackers are taking advantage of problems with a backchannel in global telecommunications.

Unclear rules and inconsistent but harsh enforcement maximize self censorship.
Over the years, Techdirt has been trying to keep up with the deepening censorship in China, as more and more ways are found by the authorities to keep online users in check. Given the political situation there, that's hardly a surprise, but what...

I'm not sure who taught who, but suspect this is an evolving science without borders. We built the great firewall of China, which was designed to be unreliable in this way. Did we teach or learn from our clients? Richard Stallman pointed out decades ago that the motive in censorship is less important than the results which are always the same harshness. Our system of profit guarding has given people power which has inevitably turned the system into thought and behavior control.

"A New York man known as the Red Light Robin Hood was arrested again this month after cutting wires to red light cameras where yellow light duration times were shortened by the city in order to generate more citations and revenue. The shortened durations at the traffic lights generate $32 million for Suffolk County, which is why the county allows the practice to continue despite their own study showing they lead to an increase in accidents with injuries."

Mother Jones does the Math on Journalism's Collapse  There's some smugness and contempt in this article but the overall story is grim and well told.  

One thing that struck me about the list of papers closing, is how many of them are on my favorites or at least off my contempt list.  The Guardian, Salon, and Al Jazeera America for example, have 
done great reporting.  That generally means rich and powerful people will want to shut them down by starving them of advertising in one way or another.  

all the big new digital shops today employ, between them, a few thousand journalists—compared with the ten-thousand-plus laid off in the great retrenchment of 2007 to 2010 ... A reporter doing even modestly original work might produce five stories a week (and that's not allowing for anything more than a few phone calls and a couple of rounds of editing per piece). If each of those stories gets, on average, 50,000 readers, and each of those page views generates $0.01 (again, a very generous rate), you'll end up grossing $2,500 a week, or $130,000 a year, with which you'll have to pay the reporter and her editor, their benefits, web tech, sales and ops staff, taxes, insurance, electricity, rent, laptops, phones.

*A Good Place for Routine and Performance Service* I bought parts and used computers for gnu/linux boxes here five years ago. It's a great place for computer repair, parts. The owner is friendly, low key, and knows what he's doing. Most customers seemed satisfied. The shop also looked like a good place to build a gaming/media rig. It was filled with exotic motherboards, graphics cards, sound systems, etc. The owner is a gamer himself. The owner is a treasure. I would give the place five stars if it were not for tobacco use which may put people off when they walk in. Don't let it. The owner managed to keep the systems clean by walking outside to smoke.
