Ashcroft wins Internet wiretap system
Yep, it's now official. All new technologies must include designed-in surveilance capability. It's time to get serious about encryption, folks -- the only way to stop the government from listening in is to make it impossible for them to listen in.
In theory, there's a public comment period on the implementation details, like how much time the providers are allowed to rework their networks. In practice, why comment? The decision's been made, the only thing left to debate is how much effort the government will require without any form of compensation. (Funny, they used to call that slavery).
In the meantime, surely we can generate some useful energy by harnessing the Founders as they spin in their graves.
