Telecoms whining and threatening to take their ball and go home if they don't get 100% of what they want 100% of the time is something the US and Canada both share.

I remember going to lunch with a younger (I was younger too) back in my law school days, hooking up with him after the Berkeley Mac Users Group meeting. Did the early internet activists blow it?

Another slap in the face to my former intel colleagues. Grenell is a partisan bombthrower whose only skill is defending Trump. Trump’s decision not to nominate a permanent DNI underscores that he has no use for intel and no regard for national security.

I don’t know what a good job at trial would even look like for a Roger Stone lawyer. But he’s earning his fee in the depo.

I don't have the patience for much of this, but I did listen long enough to have a certain amount of pity for Stone's lawyer.

Goddamnit. I'm going to live tweet the Roger Stone deposition by Larry Klayman. Which is like watching the most obnoxious people locked in a fishbowl together.

Stewart Baker's mischievous Sec. 230 suggestion: "In particular, why should they be immune from liability for utterly predictable criminal use of warrant-proof encryption?" Don't forget the utterly predictable criminal use of the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments.

Only a troll would suggest that my correcting my mistakes through deletion proves something bad. Since you now have established that you're troll, goodbye.

Did the early internet activists blow it? < A guardedly optimistic take on the cyber-libertarian spirit of the early days of the Net and its applicability today, from – yes, *that* Mike Godwin, of the eponymous Law.

1. Some basic thoughts on . It is not clear how bad will be globally, but in this moment of uncertainty, the most important thing is to have a government that tells the truth.

No, no, it was the invention of writing! oogle "Plato" "Thamus" "Phaedrus" and "Theuth." Written numbers led directly to capitalism! See also:
