    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Bill proposes Wi-Fi logs retained for two years

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 6:46 pm

From CNN: Bill proposes ISPs, Wi-Fi keep logs for police

From the article: “Translated, the Internet Safety Act applies not just to AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, and so on–but also to the tens of millions of homes with Wi-Fi access points or wired routers that use the standard method of dynamically assigning temporary addresses. (That method is called Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, or DHCP.)”

I am sick to death of politicians using the “protect the children” mantra as an excuse to erode your civil rights. This data retention isn’t to save kids from child molesters, it’s to make sure the government can track you whenever it wants. Owe back taxes? The government will use this data. Complain about the local police? They will be able to mine this data looking for anything they can use. If this becomes law, civil cases will eventually be able to use this retained data in lawsuits, divorces, etc. This is absolutely absurd, and needs to be stopped now.
