    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.

Court Order Seeks Email Data of WikiLeaks Volunteer

From The Wall Street Journal Online: Court Order Seeks Email Data of WikiLeaks Volunteer Jacob Appelbaum

From the article: “The U.S. government has obtained a controversial type of secret court order to force Google Inc. and small Internet provider Inc. to turn over information from the email accounts of WikiLeaks volunteer Jacob Appelbaum, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.”

No matter what you think about WikiLeaks, the way the government can without warrant request and receive your personal information from on-line services, information they couldn’t receive that way if it was on your personal computer at home, is really terrifying. Until some protections are enacted by Congress, anyone who allows their email to sit on a server more than 180-days is subject to this information request, so make sure you download everything to your home machine and delete from your provider to avoid “fishing expeditions.”
