Embedded Video and Your Privacy We've recently started embedding video from YouTube and elsewhere into Deeplinks and other areas of EFF.org. This posed a challenge: On one hand, embedded video is an important tool that we want to be able to use. But, on the other hand, embedded video has worrisome privacy implications that we thought we should do something about.
One aspect of the Egyptian uprising (among the others, most ongoing) that was overpowered by the wild acclamation of social media is something that has been quietly but powerfully changing societal norms over the last decade. It is simply the inclusion, on almost every mobile phone sold, of a digital camera. When 90% of the active population can, at any time, record an event they are witness to, and transmit it to the rest of the world instantly, many rules begin to change. It’s not new, of course: “citizen journalism” has a long history before mobiles were prevalent, and the growing trend of “you report”-style news and things like Twitter streams in live reporting are as plain as the lens on your phone.

Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters like BlackBerry, social networking Web sites like and software that allows direct “peer to peer” messaging like — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order. The mandate would include being able to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages. The bill, which the Obama administration plans to submit to lawmakers next year, raises fresh questions about how to balance security needs with protecting privacy and fostering innovation. And because security services around the world face the same problem, it could set an example that is copied globally. James X. Dempsey, vice president of the Center for Democracy and Technology, an Internet policy group, said the proposal had “huge implications” and challenged “fundamental elements of the Internet revolution” — including its decentralized design.

Big [B]Other: Thoughts while reading the Rhizome piece Thoughts while reading the Rhizome piece Reaction to Osfavelados and his Rhizome for dummies Maybe Hypertexts do indeed not exist, because we cannot perceive them, we can only follow its branches but it is very hard for a human to perceive all the branches at once, it is hard for humans to comprehend the totality of all possibilities. We think in lines, follow paths, go back on our tracks. If that is hypertext, then maybe it does exist, but chances are that we are only confronted with chaos. I am a phenomenologist: I believe that I can only perceive the world with the aid of myself.
