Swedish law draft: police and domestic intelligence to gain rights for automatic ‘net wiretapping

Did any silly sod believe even for a minute that the wiretapping rights actually wouldn’t be expanded from the Swedish military intelligence to domestic agencies? Because, you know, it is the Russian internet traffic that was so crucially important to capture?

Also, an article in Svenska Dagbladet (in Swedish).

Weird Google Street View Scenery

Related to an article with the usual panicking about Google Street View.

Protip for complainers: build a fucking fence if you don’t want your genital warts photographed when you walk naked in your suburban garden.

Yes, Google and the likes are really privacy issues in the scale of spanish galeons on monster truck wheels.

High resolution, freely available street maps with metadata are, however, some of the most useful types of services ever, and someone building this doesn’t even enter into the “ethically dubious” category.

Shut up and start looking at the real issues, such as real time video surveillance and online data mining.
