Maintenance Koch Spy Agency Led by Voter Fraud Huckster The Kochs have been complaining about a "lack of civility in politics" as they seek to boost their public image--but one of their top operatives helped propel perhaps the most egregious case of race-baiting voter fraud hucksterism in recent years. At the same time that the Kochs have been on a PR blitz, publicly spinning an image of themselves as well-intentioned patriots trying to make the world a better place and decrying "character assassination," they've been quietly ramping up a clandestine surveillance and intelligence gathering operation focused on their perceived political enemies, Ken Vogel reports at Politico. At the helm of this "competitive intelligence" operation is a man named Mike Roman, Vice President of Research for Kochs' Freedom Partners and who was paid $265,000 last year, according to Freedom Partners' recent tax filing.

Timelines of History Some implications of networked sensing for privacy in public space: Toward a taxonomy of public objects | Urbanscale The following article presents some structured thinking about potential threats to privacy presented by networked objects operating in public space, developed for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. I want to make it clear that in all of what follows, we’re not talking about personal mobile devices, nor are we considering any system that takes effect exclusively on private property; the taxonomy we establish here only applies to systems operating in spaces that are (de jure or de facto) public. Our intention is to delineate a threshold of capability past which it may be appropriate for a community to place limits on what they will permit to be deployed. You might well consider any attempt to define and regulate such objects an exercise in futility, given that almost every single person on the contemporary street is carrying a device inherently capable of gathering and sharing the most sensitive facts of location, association and behavior. and particularly, 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Frameworks for Citizen Responsiveness: Towards a Read/Write Urbanism Map based illustration of 311 street sign service calls : US census tracts connected by city roadways. Illustration: Jane Kelly {*style:<b>Seeing the City as Software </b>*}In the past, I’ve often enough described cities as being “ “: about the necessity of negotiating various waits, complaints and fears. 311 provides an online point of entry, but its primary form of engagement is a phone call between a citizen with a question and an operator able to point her towards the proper resource or department. How might we close the loop? We can begin to treat urban environments as system resources, rather than a mute collection of disarticulated buildings, vehicles, sewers and sidewalks. Technology entrepreneur has suggested stealing a page from the practice of software development as a way of addressing shared problem spaces more generally. This kind of urban issue-tracking board would have to be visual and Web-friendly, simultaneously citizen-facing and bureaucracy-facing. (a) . (b) . (c) .
