A very interesting paper on the effect of Nano-Bio-Info-Cogno (NBIC) technologies, empowering directed human evolution and transhumanism, on global security. These technologies seem inevitable and allow for powers yet unimaginable for human beings. However as of now most humans don't appear to be ready to handle such power. And this is mainly the problem this paper focuses on.

DRM is Dead, RIAA Says


It can't really get any more "official" than this. Only about two years ago we were all, figuratively speaking of course, up in arms over DRM. Some were even dressed in hazmat suits with "Eliminate DRM" signs all in hopes that one day we could say we defeated DRM, it's dead.

And that future is here. Gotta appreciate the instances of good guys winning in a world otherwise so full of fail.

Lost Liberty


An excellent and intriguing video ad for a site which aims to "strike the hidden root of violence"; Lost Liberty Cafe. Violence is oppositional to liberty, but unfortunately most people don't see the sources of violence hidden in plain sight because they learned to doublethink it away.


Electronic Frontier Foundation has established a Surveillance Self-Defense site at ssd.eff.org which appears to be a rather complete resource on how to legitimately defend yourself from government (and other) surveillance.

"Microsoft has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against TomTom alleging that the device maker's products, including some that are Linux-based, infringe on patents related to Microsoft's FAT32 filesystem. This marks the first time that Microsoft has enforced its FAT patents against the Linux platform, a move that some free software advocates have long feared could be disastrous."
