+ PGP key signing party Online News Association Chicago ONA14

Last week on Twitter, I floated the idea of holding a PGP key-signing party at this week's Online News Association conference in Chicago. [ http://ona14.journalists.org ]

Based on the response, I take it that few attending are using PGP. Last call: If you're interested in participating in a key-signing party, get in touch with me by Monday, September 22 at noon Eastern Time. A PGP key-signing party requires advance preparation by everyone involved, so time is short.

+ Kandahar Journals documentary film Kickstarter Louie Palu Murray Brewster Devin Gallagher

NOW: Final 90 minutes to support the Kandahar Journals documentary film Kickstarter campaign by friends Louie Palu, Murray Brewster, and their colleague Devin Gallagher. The film is based on Louie's journals while he was covering the war in Afghanistan, and gives a largely ignored look at what happened there. Please lend your support however you can.

+ TweetDeck security vulnerability Twitter

If you have a Twitter account and have ever used TweetDeck (even if you no longer do so):

1. Go to https://twitter.com/settings/applications and revoke TweetDeck's account-access permission.

2. Change your password.

There is an unresolved security vulnerability in TweetDeck that apparently exists in multiple versions of the tool, not just the Chrome version as some have reported.

+ Sochi Russia Olympics Vladimir Putin freedom of speech expression human civil rights journalists journalism Reporters Sans Frontieres RSF

Vladimir Putin's Russia is one of the greatest enemies of free speech and civil liberties in the world. The media is largely controlled by Putin and offers up virtually nonstop favourable coverage. Anyone who dares to question or criticize or illuminate wrongdoing faces consequences that range from threats and intimidation to censorship, imprisonment, and assassination.

As the eyes of the world turn to the Winter Olympics in Sochi this month, remember that the spectacle and sport came at a cost to many people whose names we will never know, and whose livelihoods and lives will remain under threat long after our enjoyment of the Olympics ends.

Reporters sans frontières / Reporters Without Borders / RSF is one of a handful of organizations that aims to defend journalists working in the public interest as they report the real news and truth about the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

Defend independent journalists.

+ Canada Day

The more I travel, and the more I see in countries near and far, the more I appreciate coming home every time.

I am constantly reminded of the many things that make this country great, particularly in conversations with ordinary people in foreign lands, in which their questions often begin: "Is it true that in Canada…?" Those questions end in many flattering descriptions of life here, and I feel proud to be able to confirm all of the good things that people have heard.

Canada Day is the perfect time to reflect on our good fortune to be Canadian, and all of the good things that are possible because of it. We truly have something great here. And if you're not Canadian, you can count yourself lucky to know one! 

A special greeting to all of those Canadians who find themselves away from home today. That you are out there somewhere seems like a natural outcome of being from what may be the most multicultural society in the world. 

Happy Canada Day, everyone.

+ The day we fight back against mass surveillance media press freedom journalism source protection whistleblowers free expression NSA CSE CSEC GCHQ ASD GCSB spying civil rights liberties freedoms


Today, February 11, has been designated "the day we fight back" against mass surveillance by our governments and their secretive spy agencies.

This is a free expression issue as much as it is one of privacy, and has real implications for source protection and the freedom and ability of journalists to work in the public interest.

The Committee to Protect Journalists has published a brief history of surveillance of journalists and its use to undermine their work or even kill them. Although it largely focuses on actions by U.S. agencies, the incidents, issues and principles raised are not unique to that nation, and is well worth reading by journalists and citizens of any country:

Go to thedaywefightback.org or eff.org or if you're in Canada, eff.org/canada to learn more and take action.
