Yesterday i felt like i had some horrible chemical exposure during meeting for business. The headache and malaise stayed with me the rest of the day.


Before the impact of the chemicals, i wondered what Benjamin Franklin would have thought about "metadata" collection in the mail. This morning i find that collecting data of the cover of your mail is prohibited (except law enforcement yadda yadda). I'm not in the mood to let myself be distracted to find out if one needs a court order to read someone's mail or collect the "metadata," but i find it telling that the information on the cover of mail has been considered privileged. Metadata, harumph.

Back to messenger pigeons?

this week's Linux Action Show had a lot of talk about peer-to-peer ways to try to encrypt or evade intrusion. http://youtu.be/iyiaiF_-A2M

I was not very intrigued with all that, for the reason that it seems a little naive to me.

Privacy died years ago, but its last gasp is probably pre-technical, I imagine.
