A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace by John Perry Barlow <barlow@eff.org> Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather. We have no elected government, nor are we likely to have one, so I address you with no greater authority than that with which liberty itself always speaks. Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. You have not engaged in our great and gathering conversation, nor did you create the wealth of our marketplaces. You claim there are problems among us that you need to solve. Cyberspace consists of transactions, relationships, and thought itself, arrayed like a standing wave in the web of our communications. We are creating a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth. Davos, Switzerland

Ghostery The CIA and Acid | Carpe Noctem - Seize the NightCarpe Noctem – Seize the Night LSD was invented in Switzerland by Albert Hofmann, a researcher for Sandoz pharmaceuticals. The CIA was on to acid long before the flower children. It did not spontaneously appear among the youth of the Western world as a gift from the God of Getting’ High. So, for that matter, were upstanding citizens like Time-Life magnate Henry Luce and his wife, Clare Boothe Luce, who openly sang the praises of their magical mystery tours during the early sixties. While the cognoscenti had the benefit of tuned-in physicians, other psychedelic pioneers took their first trips as part of CIA-controlled research studies. At least one person committed suicide after becoming an unwitting subject of a CIA LSD test, crashing through a high-story plate-glass window in a New York hotel as his Agency guardian watched. MK-ULTRA was the code name the CIA used for its program directed at gaining control over human behavior through “covert use of chemical and biological materials,” as proposed by Richard Helms.

Mozilla Lightbeam Shows Who's Watching You Online In the spirit of online transparency, and for those paranoid about organizations watching your every move, a new tool from Mozilla lets you monitor who is following your digital footprint. Lightbeam is a free extension available for download on Mozilla's Firefox browser that promises to "illuminate the inner workings of the web." It uncovers which third-party companies are watching your online activity — most likely brands and advertisers looking to share your data or directly target ads. "As a part of Lightbeam, we're creating a big-picture view of how tracking works on the Internet, and how third-party sites are connected to multiple other sites," Mozilla said in a statement. The company aims to give web users control of their data and privacy by using interactive visualizations in the form of graphs, clocks and lists. "The visualization grows with every site you visit and every request made from your browser," Mozilla said in the statement. Have something to add to this story?

Аккумуляторы будущего будут изготавливать из ревеня Исследователи из Гарварда создали новый вид аккумулятора, в котором используется электрохимическая реакция между органическими соединениями вместо металлов. Эта многообещающая технология позволяет надеяться в скором времени на решение проблемы создания дешёвого и высокоэффективного аккумулятора. По словам изобретателей, в их разработке используются хиноны, органические соединения, идентичные тем, что содержатся в ревене. Стоимость добычи хинонов низка, их можно вырабатывать из растений или синтезировать из нефти-сырца. В отличие от батарей с цельным электродом, проточные батареи содержат два химических компонента в виде растворов в отдельных резервуарах. В аккумуляторе гарвардцев используется водный раствор хинонов, что делает его пожаробезопасным. По словам одного из разработчиков, Роя Гордона (Roy G. Майкл Азиз (Michael J. В отчете Американского Химического Сообщества от 2011 года сообщается, что всемирная выработка ветряной энергии в 2006 году составила 74,3 ГВт, а в 2007 — 94 ГВт.

The Tin Hat | Simple Online Privacy Guides and Tutorials FEBE How the NSA's Domestic Spying Program Works The NSA’s domestic spying program, known in official government documents as the “President’s Surveillance Program,” ("The Program") was implemented by President George W. Bush shortly after the attacks on September 11, 2001. The US Government still considers the Program officially classified, but a tremendous amount of information has been exposed by various whistleblowers, admitted to by government officials during Congressional hearings and with public statements, and reported on in investigations by major newspaper across the country. Our NSA Domestic Spying Timeline has a full list of important dates, events, and reports, but we also want to explain—to the extent we understand it—the full scope of the Program and how the government has implemented it. In the weeks after 9/11, President Bush authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to conduct a range of surveillance activities inside the United States, which had been barred by law and agency policy for decades.
