Entry: 2015-01-16 15:06:01.840074-08 On our relationships with technology by Dan Lyke comments 2

I've been hanging out with the Indie Web Camp folks, and as such have been exposed to other people who feel as I do about social media, about owning our own content, managing our own backups, maintaining our own web presences, things like that.

The arguments are nothing new, we've all seen photo hosting and blogging sites go away and take their archives with them, we've all seen repurposed content, changes in terms of service, communities painstakingly built up over years disappear with a student graduating a college and losing mailing list privileges.

Or so I thought.

A few weeks ago, I was involved in an email exchange with someone who's technically savvy, and he questioned my use of trimming and interspersed posting, rather than top posting. I was kind of taken aback because I figured he was steeped enough in tech to be a 'net native, but I suddenly realized...

Facebook has, at this point, been around for almost 11 years, and is really the first place that most modern net users have actually built some sort of web presence. We talk fondly of ~username on our home ISPs back in the day, and then GeoCities and Tripod, and of watching Orkut and MySpace and Tribe and whatnot crash and burn, but this is a sort of history that most people haven't dealt with.

Similarly, we have 3 decades of files that we've moved from machine to machine, and had to organize and curate and have directories of stuff that we've just copied and hope are still okay. Images that we had scanned to PhotoCD back in the days of film. Raw files from digital SLRs. JPEGs from early point-n-shoots.

Most people have the slides their dad took back in the day of SLR film cameras, and selfies from the camera in their smart phone acquired in the boom of the last half a decade.

There is an experience here that I think mirrors the same way that we who'd been on BBSs back in the '80s saw the coming of the net: In the same way that we saw the early 'net from adapting to the lifestyle, of email and online forums spread into (and be taken over by) the mainstream culture, the problems of personal data and online presences are about to become a deal to the culture at large.

I don't know how we profit from it, yet, but I think there will be huge opportunities in the next few years, because I think most people need it, but don't yet know that the do.

Entry: 2015-01-16 10:45:51.36319-08 limiting asset seizure by Dan Lyke comments 1

This is a good first step: Holder limits seized-asset sharing process that split billions with local, state police:

Holder’s decision allows some limited exceptions, including illegal firearms, ammunition, explosives and property associated with child pornography, a small fraction of the total. This would eliminate virtually all cash and vehicle seizures made by local and state police from the program.

While police can continue to make seizures under their own state laws, the federal program was easy to use and required most of the proceeds from the seizures to go to local and state police departments. Many states require seized proceeds to go into the general fund.

You’re not as strange as you think: sex study:

In a recent study, researchers with the Université du Québec and the Philippe-Pinel Institute of Montreal surveyed 1,516 people in the province — about half of them men and half women — to learn about their sexual fantasies.

“There are many things found in the general population that don’t fit the definition of ‘normal,’ ” said Christian Joyal, the paper’s lead author.

As this newspaper first reported earlier this week, the investigation began with a single incident: Harrington's conduct during the Aug. 29 arrest of the San Ramon woman. The woman discovered that photos had been stolen from her phone five days after her release, when she noticed on her iPad that the photos had been sent to an unknown number. A record of the messages had been deleted from her iPhone, but the phone had been synced to the iPad.

Spying On Celebrities: NYC Taxi Metadata Exposes Celeb Locations And Strip Club Clients

Then, to illustrate the individualized surveillance power of the seemingly anonymous data, Anthony Tockar of Neustar Research cross-referenced the information with publicly available photos of the celebrities getting into cabs with identifiable license plates. That allowed Tockar to declare that Cooper's "cab took him to Greenwich Village, possibly to have dinner at Melibea, and that he paid $10.50, with no recorded tip." He also revealed that "Alba got into her taxi outside her hotel, the Trump SoHo, and somewhat surprisingly also did not add a tip to her $9 fare." (If Cooper or Alba tipped with cash, that might not show up on the records.)

RT Christopher Soghoian ‏@csoghoian:

The Michigan Supreme Court, 1922: Cars are tools for robbery, rape, murder, enabling silent approach + swift escape.

The accompanying picture is this text.

The automobile is a swift and powerful vehicle of recent development which has multiplied by quantitiy production and taken posession of our highways in battalions, until the slower, anmal-drawn ehicles, with their easily noted individuality, are rare. Constructed as covered vehicles to standard form in immense quantities, with a capacity for speed rivaling express trains, they furnish for successful commission of crime a disguising means of silent approach and swift escape unknown in the history of the world before their advent. The question of their police control and reasonable search on highways or other public places is a serious question .... The baffling extent to which they are successfully utilized to facilitate commission of crime of all degrees, from those against morality, chastitiy, and decency to robbery, rape, burglary, and murder, is a matter of common knowledge. Upon that problem a condition and not a theory confronts proper administration of or criminal laws.

I think this ties nicely into the "OMG, encrypted communications are for pedophiles" current law enforcement pearl clutching.

Marijke Vonk: The Myth of Trafficking:

“It’s as if prostitutes don’t want to be saved,” said a surprised manager of a Rescue Foundation shelter in India. The rescuers had once again made a raid on a brothel, after which the women had been forced into a shelter they weren’t allowed to leave. Again and again women escaped, continually protested their imprisonment in the shelters, and returned to their old workplaces as soon as they were able to make a run for it. It was as if the women were working as prostitutes of their own accord, didn’t view themselves as victims, thought of the rescue missions as threats to their human rights and livelihoods and for the most part felt victimized by the rescue industry.

Growing up poor with three parents. Talking about being poly and privilege...

If privilege can be defined as unearned advantage, then for my family polyamory was not the result of privilege. Rather, it was a source of it. I can see now that my parents’ triad provided them with the resources and mutual support they needed to be so conscientious in raising me and my two siblings. It freed them from many of the difficult decisions a poor, working family often has to make: attend the PTA meeting, or put in some overtime? Actively raise the children, or make enough money to feed them? A three parent household has 50% more time, income, and experience than a two-parent household. That counts for a great deal.

I sincerely hope that absolutely none of the victims involved in this current leak takes any form of “responsibility” or apologizes for anything. The victims involved have committed no crime and committed no sin by creating said photos in the first place or in “allowing” them to be stolen. What occurred yesterday is a theft and a crime, plain and simple. It is a personal violation of a prurient nature, with photos of an explicit nature that were intended for private or personal use now unleashed online for anyone to see, for free no less. ...
