Google Plans to Release 20 Million Infected Mosquitoes in California

Sometimes you have to think that scientists don’t ever read science fiction, and thus have not even contemplated all the things that could go wrong when they do something like creating 20 million mosquitos in a laboratory, infecting them with a bacteria, and then releasing those mosquitos in Fresno, California.

American Tech Giants don’t want an Open Web

The Exponential Growth of Insecurity

There is no such thing as cyber security. The only choice is more security or less security, as the recent hack of the National Security Agency demonstrates. Hackers stole from NSA a cyber weapon, which has been used in attacks (at time of writing) on 150 countries, shutting down elements of the British National Health Service, the Spanish telecommunications company Telefonica, automakers Renault and Nissan, Russia’s Interior Ministry, Federal ...Read full article...

Lost Privacy Rights in America

All our moves, transactions and communications can be recorded, compiled and stored for easy access. Anything we say or do can be used against us. Bill of Rights protections no longer apply. Collecting meta-data communications on Americans is unrelated to national security. Judicial oversight is absent. Congressional ...Read full article...
