THOUGHT CONTROL AND SCIENTOLOGY: "How and why people surrender their critical thinking skills and succumb to 're-education' has been the subject of study and controversy since the 1950s, when researchers began to encounter forms of coercive persuasion, or ideological re-molding, that were developed in China and the Soviet Union and were used on prisoners of war and on civilians in a variety of milieus. The methods of thought reform identified by such groundbreaking investigators as Dr. Robert J. Lifton (3) and the late Dr. Margaret Thaler Singer (4) have been shown to be present in virtually all high-demand religions presently operating in the United States and the Western world. (5)"

Comfort: Mediocre
visibility: Poor
entry/exit: Athletes only
instrument panel: Fair
gear operation: Only possible for long armed pilot's
steering friction: Unacceptable
takeoff: Stick all the way back to break ground
landing: Simple, with good glide path control
stability: Difficult to assess, since the stick remains where it is put due to friction
pitch response: Normal
roll control: Unfriendly, some flutter in turbulence.

Loophole lets 'Freedom' ring in Chinese MSN blogs | | CNET "Loophole lets 'Freedom' ring in Chinese MSN blogs"

Committee to Protect Bloggers: "OPENNET'S IRAN REPORT
The OpenNet Initiative has released their report on Iran's internet. From the report:

Our report on Iranian filtering of the Internet shows that not only are freedom of speech and access to information under threat, but that there is a growing commercial market for the technologies that diminish them. By providing filtering systems to non-democratic regimes, the US company, Secure Computing, is complicit in Iranian breaches of the UN Declaration of Human Rights. This thriving Internet censorship market -- spread like a virus from China to Iran to an increasing number of countries worldwide -- calls into question not only the trumpeted slogans of high-tech firms that the Internet represents 'freedom' and 'connectivity,' but simplistic divisions between 'us' and 'them' as well."

Eric Sinrod has a completely nonsensical column in yesterday's USA Today about how MP3 players are going to be the next big risk to personal privacy. His entire column is based on a piece Dr. Larry Ponemon of the 'Ponemon Institute' (that ain't the Pokemon Institute, it's a 'privacy think-tank'—that's rich) wrote back in February for Darwin magazine about the privacy risks of MP3 players. His evidence? One anecdotal piece of evidence about a ten-year-old girl who got a 'shiny MP3 player' for Christmas (they don't say what kind it was); the girl, who only goes by the name 'Olivia,' started downloading hundreds of songs, only to be deluged a few weeks later with targeted ads for rock concerts, CDs, and 'pop clothing star sales.' Her 'computer-savvy' mom called the manufacturer to complain about how her daughter's MP3 player had violated her privacy, only to be told that it was impossible for the device to do that.

Sounds like Olivia probably got hit with some spyware after downloading some not-so-legal music, right? Not according to Sinrod, who claims that '[MP3] players can collect personal information and track user musical preferences,' and that 'th"

Secret codes enbedded into pages printed by some colour laser printers pose a risk to personal privacy, according to the Electronic Frontier Fundation. The US privacy group warns the approach - ostensibly only designed to identify counterfeiters - has become a tool for government surveillance, unchecked by laws to prevent abuse."

Against TCPA | TCPA would TAKE your FREEDOM | This is NO FAKE: "The bills:
In the USA there's a planed bill, the so called CBDPTA (Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act). First it was callen SSSCA (Security Systems Standards and Certification Act). The new name reads much more harmless. Looks like the first name made it too easy to discover the purpose of this bill.
This bill plans to legally force secure (TCPA-conform) systems. So in the USA it would then not be allowed to buy or sell systems that are not TCPA-conform. Passing this law would be punished with up to 5 years of prision and up to $500.000 fine. The same would apply for development of 'open' software. Open means that it would work on systems that're not TCPA-conform.
Even if this bill would only valid in the USA it would have catastrophically effects worldwide. Because US companies are not allowed to develop and sell 'unsecure' software, others would have to jump onto the TCP-train, so they would give total control over themself to the TCPA (USA?), or they would have to live completely without software and harware from US-companies. No Windows, Solaris, MacOS, Photoshop, Winamp or to say it short: The largest part of all software that's used on this planet would not be usable.

Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace: "Ada, The Enchantress of Numbers"

Charles Babbage Institute: EXHIBITS > Who was Charles Babbage?: "And, though Babbage’s work was formally recognized by respected scientific institutions, the British government suspended funding for his Difference Engine in 1832, and after an agonizing waiting period, ended the project in 1842. There remain only fragments of Babbage's prototype Difference Engine, and though he devoted most of his time and large fortune towards construction of his Analytical Engine after 1856, he never succeeded in completing any of his several designs for it. George Scheutz, a Swedish printer, successfully constructed a machine based on the designs for Babbage's Difference Engine in 1854. This machine printed mathematical, astronomical and actuarial tables with unprecedented accuracy, and was used by the British and American governments."
