Echelon's SpookWords Generator For instance, Simon Davies, director of Privacy International, warns that the list of 1,700 suspicious "trigger words" will not outsmart the global surveillance system : "The Echelon system works on a very sophisticated system of word relationships, rather than strictly on keywords.

They know their lives are at risk, yet each year thousands of people from Africa, the Middle East and beyond — war refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants — leave their homes and try to reach the promised land of Europe. On the third of October 2013, more than 360 would-be emigrants drowned off the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa. A catastrophe of this dimension grabbed the media’s attention for a while and won the sympathy of the general public.
Encrypting Your Laptop Like You Mean It Time and again, people are told there is one obvious way to mitigate privacy threats of all sorts, from mass government surveillance to pervasive online tracking to cybercriminals: Encryption. As President Obama put it earlier this year, speaking in between his administration’s attacks on encryption, “There’s no scenario in which we don’t want really strong encryption.” Even after helping expose all the ways the government can get its hands on your data, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden still maintained, “Encryption works.

Google: "Goggles Does NOT Do Face Recognition" The big news out of Hot Chips on Monday was Google's promise to have its Goggles visual search app ready for the iPhoneby the end of 2010. Google Goggles project lead David Petrous also provided the inside scoop into how Goggles deciphers your images in the cloud. But the most interesting takeaway from Petrous' talk was his repeated insistence that Google Goggles does not do facial recognition—interspersed by a long tutorial on how well it would work if it did. Augmenting your reality Augmented reality is a step toward intuitive search, like having an insightful personal assistant following your every move, answering not just "what am I looking at?"

Though the new sign-up process added one more screen, conversions went up 29%. How? Gradual engagement.
