… must … feed … (week of 6.1.2014)

June 8, 2014

This week I tagged about 150 stories of interest – which is a bit much to cull.  It’s likely due to interest in totally off-topic bits, like this: This Map Shows You The Fastest Way to Get Anywhere In Your City — Alissa Walker / Gizmodoand this:  CIA tweets for the first time, and it’s doublespeak — David Kravets / Ars Technica

When there really is important stuff going on out there, like

NSA Intercepting ‘Millions Of Images’ Per Day In Order To Fill Facial Recognition Database — Tim Cushing / Techdirt

Reddit, Imgur, DuckDuckGo, BoingBoing And More Will Participate In Anti-NSA Protests This Week — Sarah Perez / TechCrunch

No worries: NSA chief says facial recognition program is totally legal — Cyrus Farivar / Ars Technica

On 6/5, 65 Things We Know About NSA Surveillance That We Didn’t Know a Year Ago — Katitza Rodriguez and Nadia Kayyali / EFF

… and in the same context, but more fun …

NSA-Mocking Easter Egg Found In Google’s New Email Encryption Plug-In — Alex Wilhelm / TechCrunch

And remember, it’s not illegal to film law enforcement doing their jobs in public …

Woman charged with wiretapping for filming cops wins $57,000 payout — David Kravets / Ars Technica

That’s all for this time…  too much to process.
