Remember Everything You Read

memory

Most of us quickly forget most of the information we are exposed to. Our brains have developed to do that. It’s a good thing, because most of the information we are exposed to is unimportant.

Stifling creativity the AMERICAN way!

WWW | “rien ne vas plus?”

Under pressure from the music and film industries, France had pushed hard for tough measures against illegal downloaders. French President Nicolas Sarkozy had advocated a “three strikes and you’re out” rule, under which Internet use would be tracked and users caught downloading would be warned twice before their Internet access would be cut off for a year. Britain is also considering such a move, lawmakers said. Read the rest of this entry »

Swedish Update: Piratbyrån

Hopefully you have been following this fiasco?
If not, we will be keeping an eye on it for you.

BACKSTORY: a group of file-sharing bastards in Sweden were arrested, charged, tried and convicted to the tune of X millions of (American) dollars. OF COURSE the “powers-that-be” are the usual suspects, RIAA et al. and undoubtedly the Hollywanks.

ISP’s have resolved to restrict the Internet to a TV-like subscription model where users will be forced to pay to visit selected corporate websites by 2012, while others will be blocked, according to a leaked report. Despite some people dismissing the story as a hoax, the wider plan to kill the traditional Internet and replace it with a regulated and controlled Internet 2 is manifestly provable.

Why does AT&T want to know what you’re downloading?

A baffling proposal to filter the Internet


Illustration by Mark Alan Stamaty. Click image to expand.Chances are that as you read this article, it is passing over part of AT&T’s network. That matters, because last week AT&T announced that it is seriously considering plans to examine all the traffic it carries for potential violations of U.S. intellectual property laws. The prospect of AT&T, already accused of spying on our telephone calls, now scanning every e-mail and download for outlawed content is way too totalitarian for my tastes.
