Interesting Things on the Internet: July 13th 2014 Edition
This week's "Interesting Things" brought to you a day earlier than normal, as there's still a small window of opportunity for UK citizens to contact their MP about tomorrow's vote on the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill. It's easy to send them an email, just head to www.writetothem.com. My letter looked like this.
- Colonising the Clouds. Could Google, Facebook, etc. start thinking of themselves as the new states?
- Forcing through the surveillance laws is a further erosion of political trust
- Something terrible could be happening in Parliament on Monday and I need your urgent attention.
- DRIP: a shabby process for a shady law.
