Truth and Free Speech Are Being Taken Away From Us
As a country loses its liberty, legal scholars who formerly would have protected liberty turn against it in order to curry favor with power.

His account was suspended (apparently for a completely innocuous post) and eventually reinstated all with no meaningful explanation.

See No Evil — Real Life
"There is a house on Street View that Google has deemed impossible. 2207 Seymour Ave, in Cleveland, Ohio, was the four-story unit where Ariel Castro kept and tortured three women from 2002 to 2013, until Amanda Berry managed to escape and alert neighbors to their captivity. The acts that Castro committed were so heinous that a controlled demolition of the building was required in his plea bargain. A former neighbor told the Guardian that razing the house was important to show “that monster … is behind bars and that he’s never going to get out.”

On Street View, the block remains frozen in the year 2009. The image was taken while the crime was still taking place, and although an early screengrab circulating on message boards shows a house with boarded windows, Street View now blurs the house beyond recognition as a thing of brick and mortar. (..)

Clicking up and down the unpopulated block, you have that exact sense of being unhelpful and alone in your terrible knowledge of what is happening right in front of you. It’s 2018; it happened. It’s 2009; it’s happening. The survivors of Castro’s violence remain in that blur on Seymour Ave, where you cannot see them, they cannot see you, and neither of you can offer each other comfort."

Poland saved Europe from ACTA: can they save us from ACTA2? | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Six years ago, Polish activists flooded the streets to oppose ACTA, an incredibly damaging, secretly negotiated Internet treaty hatched in the US to push both America and its European trading partners well beyond anything that could be democratically arrived at.
Six years later, as the EU fumbles its way to an even more extreme Internet censorship proposal through the new Copyright in the Single Market Directive, the spark of rebellion is being rekindled in Poland, where the Directive is being referred to as "ACTA2."
A massive coalition of 15,000 Polish creators whose videos, photos and text are enjoyed by over 20,000,000 Poles have signed an open letter supporting the idea of a strong, creator-focused copyright and rejecting the new Copyright Directive as a direct path to censoring filters that will deprive them of their livelihoods.

schors: *usher2
"Один умный человек вовремя напомнил, новость шокирующая: В Австралии приняли закон, согласно которому все технологические компании, работающие в австралии (включая вебсайты, да), обязаны по первому требованию сотрудничать с полицией. В качестве форм сотрудничества предусмотрены помощь во взломе, встраивание малвари, снятие шифрования и даже разработка бэкдоров, которые потребует полиция. А если компании откажутся — их ждут штрафы, прям не маленькие.

По сути, к вам могут придти и потребовать вставить бэкдор в ваш софт, потребовать приватные ключи для расшифровки сообщений и тд. И все это под флагом "общего блага" — чтобы бороться с детским порно и терроризмом. Не знаю как у вас, а у меня сейчас самые неприятные ощущения. Не дай бог к этому движению присоединятся другие страны. Включите себе "r.e.m — It's the end of the World", отличный саундтрек к вечеру parlinfo.aph.gov.au

Tumblr, Consolidation and The Gentrification of Internet. – Wetmachine
Platforms that become popular get acquired by larger companies. These companies shape these platforms to maximize advertising revenue. That means sanding off the rough edges that make a platform less attractive to advertisers or the larger mainstream audience that likes to feel hip and edgy but not quite that authentically hip and edgy.
