I must say that this Thread -- now over a YEAR running -- HASN'T attracted much Interest, or even Attention ...


The "Free Julian Assange" Movement:


"!!! SMASH The State !!!" ... "!! Abolish Condoms !!" ... doesn't seem really very popular at all ...


(It seems that MOST Thinking Persons aren't at all inclined to follow or support a Hacker-Burglar Privacy-Invading Adolescent Personal Responsibility Dodger like Julian Assange ...)

Break the blockade!

Supporters based in the US are now in talks with Assange to establish a US-based foundation aimed at funding organisations cut off by private companies in situations with first amendment implications.


At the forefront of the efforts are Daniel Ellsberg, the man who leaked the Pentagon Papers to the US media, and John Perry Barlow, the former lyricist for the Grateful Dead and co-founder of the US online rights organisation Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).


Barlow said: "The foundation will aim to support WikiLeaks and others, like bloggers, who have been targeted by such blockades.

Feudalism.

The USPTO is considering a rather interesting request straight from lobbyists via congress: that certain 'Economically Significant' patents should be kept secret during the process (PDF Warning) of being evaluated and granted. While this does occur at the moment on a very select few patents 'due to national security' for things like nuclear energy and the like — this would allow it to go much, much further. 'By statute, patent applications are published no earlier than 18 months after the filing date, but it takes an average of about three years for a patent application to be processed. This period of time between publication and patent award provides worldwide access to the information included in those applications. In some circumstances, this information allows competitors to design around U.S. technologies and seize markets before the U.S. inventor is able to raise financing and secure a market.'

Interesting ...


"Feudalism" and "Anarchy" WOULD partake a similar Ethos, yes ... ??? I.e., neither would involve a Governmentally guaranteed Democracy and Civil and Human Rights ... but rather, any "Order" in Society would be imposed by the Whim and Fiat of The Most Powerful ...

Test your Internet connection for censorship.

Tor developers Arturo Filasto and Jacob Appelbaum have released OONI-probe, an open-source software tool designed to be installed on any PC and run to collect data about local meddling with the computer's network connections, whether it be website blocking, surveillance or selective bandwidth slowdowns. Unlike other censorship tracking projects like HerdictWeb or the Open Net Initiative, OONI will allow anyone to run the testing application and share their results publicly.

Internet UK.

Nevertheless, motivated by national security concerns, the state has provided for vast surveillance measures over online communications. Moreover, certain filtering and tracking practices do take place. Such practices are sometimes encouraged by the state but most often voluntarily implemented by private operators.

Tough at home.

Australia’s Internet censorship regime is strikingly severe relative to both its neighbor and similar Western states, and it is helping to push the normative boundaries of filtering for an industrialized democratic state.

Google sniffs Wi-Fi.

A NY Times report has identified Marius Milner as the software engineer at the center of the uproar over a Google project that used Wi-Fi sniffing Google Street View cars to collect e-mail and other personal data from potentially millions of unsuspecting people.

I don't trust such "Offers," given the Fact that some supposedly *FREE* Offers of a Plan or a Test or a Bit of *FREE* Software turn out to be MalWare that foolish Persons install and ... then suffer ...


No Thank You ...
