Welcome to the new world, something like the old world. But with internet hackers, the flexing of muscle resembling the rumbling of keyboards, and uh. Such.
Google is dropping knowledge bombs that should surprise approximately no one who reads any sort of tech-geek site. They are slathering us with the tots ph33r that our government is increasing its internet surveillance. Got to catch the bad guys! Watching furry porn.
YouTube is taking the first step towards all your mommas shaking their donkey trunks on the internets. They’re dropping facial blurring technology, so now all of the bitties out there can definitely slough off whatever pride they had and get freaky.
Man. Total (predictable) bummer. Not even a week after European Parliament axed ACTA has it slithered out of its grave to make another attempt at implementation.
On Fuck Yeah! American Freedom (To Eat and Consume!) Day here in the States, our fellow humans over in the European Parliament have uppercut a dirty son of a bitch much to our internet folks’ pleasure.
ACTA, the serpentine beast awaiting to prey on our internet privacy is going to a vote on Wednesday in the European Parliament. Here’s hoping it’s nailed to a board and thrown to sea.

I’m not sure why I’m covering this, since I’m not a lawatician or anything, save for the fact that I find it really interesting. The US Department of Justice sent a reprimand to the Baltimore Police Deparment this past Monday being all like, “citizens can video tape you on duty”, high-fiving civil rights for once.
Pretty ridiculous, you know. In a futuro-awesomeness sort of way. The German Pirate Party is actually winning seats.
