First ISIS swept down from Syria and through Iraq, installing a "caliphate" as they progressed. This was followed by new "intelligence" that uncharged mobile phones could pose a threat to air safety. To round things of there was a sudden rush in the UK parliament to introduce emergency legislation that will keep us all safe by warehousing all our digital data. While there…

English version below   De afgelopen demonstratie tegen de Israelische bezetting van Palestijnse gebieden en de onderdrukken van Palestijnen in het land waar zij leven liet weer eens goed zien hoe de algemene media opereert ten gunste van specifieke politiek.  We kunnen denken wat we willen over de vergelijking van Israel en Duitsland onder het Naziregime (zelf snap ik waar dat standpunt vandaan komt maar ik vindt het een slap argument), het feit blijft dat er twee personen (van de vijfduizend)…

I strongly support a more thoughtful and realistic response from IOPS to the current reality of mass government surveillance.
