Abaixo, reproduzo a Carta da Sociedade Civil à presidenta Dilma Roussef, publicada em Excelentíssima Presidenta Dilma Rousseff, Esta carta é uma manifestação de pessoas e organizações da sociedade civil e busca expressar nosso extremo desconforto com as mudanças ocorridas no campo das políticas culturais, zerando oito anos de acúmulo de discussões e avanços que deram visibilidade e interlocução a um Ministério até então subalterno.

Sociedade Civil elabora Carta aberta à Presidenta Dilma Roussef – Ministério da Cultura

Frustrando aqueles que viam no simbolismo da nomeação da primeira mulher Ministra da Cultura do Brasil a confirmação de uma vitória, essa gestão rapidamente se encarregou de desconstruir não só as conquistas da gestão anterior, mas principalmente o inédito, amplo e produtivo ambiente de debate que havia se estabelecido. Os signatários desta carta acreditam na continuidade e no aprofundamento das políticas bem-sucedidas do governo Lula. A questão da retirada da licença Creative Commons do portal do MinC também merece ser mencionada, por seu simbolismo.

Tor (anonymity network) Tor (previously an acronym for The Onion Router)[4] is free software for enabling online anonymity and censorship resistance.

Tor (anonymity network)

Tor directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer network consisting of more than five thousand relays[5] to conceal a user's location or usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Using Tor makes it more difficult to trace Internet activity, including "visits to Web sites, online posts, instant messages, and other communication forms", back to the user[6] and is intended to protect the personal privacy of users, as well as their freedom and ability to conduct confidential business by keeping their internet activities from being monitored.

An extract of a Top Secret appraisal by the NSA characterized Tor as "the King of high secure, low latency Internet anonymity" with "no contenders for the throne in waiting".[7] Alice's Tor client picks a random path to destination server Steven J.
