Yup and Google has denied even knowing about PRISM. - Robert Scoble
I sent a tweet with a photo of the Guardian front page and it is being retweeted all over the place - Francine Hardaway

Why are all of the Tech Companies pleading innocence? - Moe Glitz

Not to mention the chilling effect on the free press by all the surveillance of the press - Euro Maestro
There's the British POV. I agree with Keith - Francine Hardaway
They're not covering the protests against Monsanto in 400 cities. - Murray Macdonald
Robert is right but at the same time, that type of surveillance isn't allowed in France - Euro Maestro
They make the choice with an assumption of the Privacy Policy being true. - Murray Macdonald
The Bilderberg Conference must be discussing this PRISM Topic right now in London. - Moe Glitz

http://weiweicam.com/ lets all go live like ai wei wei - Arnie Klaus
But this is really about data, isn't it? - Francine Hardaway
You only have to look at the hollywood films from the 40s and 50s criticizing the nazis for asking to see your papers to see if your papers were in order, and now the us is going down that route - Euro Maestro
Murray: that varies from state to state. Recording someone else's voice in California without their permission or a court order is illegal. - Robert Scoble
The IRA Movement started Fortress London. - Moe Glitz
Accumulo + Palantir = pointer to the bad guys (but as Kevin says, who has access?) - clive boulton

Google's stock wealth is tied to privacy - Arnie Klaus
if google is so innocent why don't they build encryption into their email by default? - mal
I think Americans are naive if they think these powers can't be used against us. I am less afraid of terrorism than of a runaway government. I feel that way about the IRS, too - Francine Hardaway
So what does this mean for Canadians and citizens of other member states of the UN? - Murray Macdonald
Wow, interesting comment by Steve - Euro Maestro
NSA should sell ads based on content like google does - Arnie Klaus
Arnie++ - Murray Macdonald
SSL is in by default, so it's encrypted between gmail users. it's when you email other people it goes clear - Kevin Marks
ostensibly that's where the government would get it... - mal
that predates Page's latest statement - Kevin Marks
Murray, citizens all around the world are now all subject to US law or even worse the whim of the President of the United States - Euro Maestro
The President is just a puppet - Moe Glitz

There are other powers in place that run the country. - Moe Glitz
I'm a Bad Guy! - Moe Glitz
Why not push for encrypted email transport. The existing standard is CRAZY and could easily be changed. - Murray Macdonald
The precise meaning of "direct access" is today's "sexual relations" moment. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Bring back the carrier pigeons! - Alex de Soto
PGP is an extension, not a transport standard. - Murray Macdonald
The apple encryption is so good that the government has been complaining about it ! - Euro Maestro
Google just said they're not familiar with any PRISM in their servers http://bit.ly/11xM81f - Nir Ben Yona
Gmail to Hotmail is unencrypted. - Murray Macdonald
The power to build graphs from huge key value stores using machine learning is understated (hope enterprise adopts, not just the social networks and NSA) - clive boulton
S/MIME is a standard - Kevin Marks
S/MIME is supported by which mail clients/servers? - Murray Macdonald
so if such service exists for these bad players, what makes one think surveillance of unencrypted mail is going to lead to major breakthroughs - Euro Maestro
China owns less than 25% of US debt. Most is owned by Private US citizens. Japan has 20% - Murray Macdonald

It's called single caller consent. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Murray Macdonald

It works for me. My relatives died by the Nazis - Francine Hardaway
But the Nazi society evolved over time, that's the problem ! - Euro Maestro
Moe: You know ALL the drug dealers in your area? LOL - Murray Macdonald
BBM has a govt backdoor - Kevin Marks
Its a small world Murray - Moe Glitz
Aha! Kevin is right. Everything has a backdoor. - Alex de Soto
Steve is absolutely right ! - Euro Maestro
The question is how is it used? Will my opinions be used against me when I apply for citizenship in a new country? Will I be excluded for being an Environmentalist? - Murray Macdonald
Pre-crime. - Alex de Soto
I don't trust the government - Francine Hardaway
Isn't the law in this case being "reviewed" every 90 days? - Alex de Soto
Not trust: "Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process." - Bruce Lewis
Keith is exactly right, goes exactly back to what Ben Franklin said, and I tend to agree with Francine ! - Euro Maestro
"How should service providers NOT included on the PRISM list feel today?" - clive boulton
My Brother-in Law worked at the Woolwich Baracks. Kings Troops. A lot of anger brewing. - Moe Glitz
We give social networks information willingly because they don't have the force of law behind them. Government agencies have to be much more constrained in their data collection because they can lock up people unjustly based on that information. - Kevin Bryan
I think Steve needs a Frenchman on to discuss this issue ! :) - Euro Maestro
Right. We have to keep being vigilant - Francine Hardaway
Just joining, but has anyone pointed out that "anonymized" big data is a myth? Once data on this scale has been collected, individuals and their behaviors are easily identified. Even commercial data crunchers know this. - Andrew Hazlett
I find Aljazeera to be less baised than Fox and MSNBC. BBC and CBC are my favs. - Murray Macdonald
Murray, me too - Francine Hardaway
The dialogue is important - Francine Hardaway
Fox still thinks JFK is in power - Moe Glitz
Andrew, I don't think anyone's brought that up. - Bruce Lewis

So the CIA/FBI/NSA operating in Montreal should conform to Quebecs privacy laws? - Murray Macdonald
The Google Glass is cracking - Moe Glitz
Good point Francine. - Euro Maestro
I think of the example of Target discovering a woman was pregnant (before she told anyone), based solely on her purchases at Target. (http://www.nytimes.com/2012...) Imagine analyzing ISP data + gov + commercial info - Andrew Hazlett
Get Off Of My Cloud - Moe Glitz
Quebec hosts lots of porn due to it's tough privacy laws. - Murray Macdonald
Overseas? Like Canada? - Murray Macdonald

is Canada Overlakes? - Kevin Marks
we are us - Tina Chase Gillmor
Or Rivers - Michael Roberts

More the reason to be informed, participate in governance as counterweight to concentration of power. Organize - Da from Android
"friendly fire" has been a factor in warfare at least since spears and arrows. I bet drones are no worse , or probably better than alternatives - Andrew Hazlett
Does anyone know when the 'War on Terror' will finally end? - Moe Glitz
I think many Americans will change their tune pretty quickly, if Mexico ever used a drone to attack Mexican drug lords in the US, and Americans were killed in the process as collateral damage, Keith or Robert ? - Euro Maestro
The blowback from these drone strikes is not worth the benefit of getting rid of a few enemies. - Kevin Bryan
How long until other nations start droning things with US look-alike clone-drones? Everyone will think the US did it. - Murray Macdonald
well the drones don't - Tina Chase Gillmor
I think it was Euro Maestro who asked that question Keith - Euro Maestro
good points Keith! - Michael Roberts
We need Apps for participatory government otherwise its a spectators sport. - Arnie Klaus
One man's terrorist is another man's patriot - Francine Hardaway
I hope I get to meet Keith Teare in person. I do agree with his theories about the nation state. I've been saying for a while that it's an outmoded concept, sort of like a real estate play. - Francine Hardaway
Steve, Quote from Frank Zappa : "The illusion of freedom [in America] will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater." - Euro Maestro
Apparently, Gerald Seymour said that in Harry's Game. - Nir Ben Yona

I think it was mentioned before, but how will this affect advertising as tools to talk to your phone improve - Michael Roberts
Google Search could be a Dinosaur on Mobile :Murray - Moe Glitz
Multi-Window support exists on Samsung, and is needed on Android and Apple. As devices get HDMI support the OSs require multiple windows. - Murray Macdonald
Kevin is completely right about fragmentation in the iOS screen sizes. iOS doesn't have tools to handle it, and it causes developers to either design their own tools or make an app that looks ridiculous on different iOS devices. - Kevin Bryan
On behavior monitoring, 80 pct of new cars have telemetrics by 2017, UKs Lysanda implementing for young drivers [good privacy application] http://www.lysanda.com/index... - clive boulton

I think Swiftkey may be allowed in. Any bets? - Alex de Soto
Google Voice Search trumps Apples - Arnie Klaus

google's isn't personalised like swiftkey's - Kevin Marks
Alex ... maybe - Tina Chase Gillmor
30% of the top 100 apps in Apple's app store are written in.... ready for it? ??? Flash/Air. - Murray Macdonald
