Why we see lots of videos from Russian roads?

If you are watching a car accident or any other incident involving cars (like falling meteorite captured on video from a car) on Youtube, it’s most likely a Russian video. Has anyone bothered to ask why?

Russia is a specific country…That’s a diplomatic way of describing their reality. It’s traffic police and courts are even more specific… So Russian citizens have found a way for their corrupted police, and for their slow courts and judges who are unable to determine the fault on some traffic incidents.

Electronics aren’t so expensive nowadays, so lots of people can afford to own a camera permanently recording their every journey, they don’t need lots of memory… If nothing happens they just delete it. Unless there is a police patrol accusing you of something you haven’t done or meteorite falling from the sky.., or…

Banners for Euro2012: Tax-office facked us for 1,9 million

Image

Although there are no Euro 2012 Championship games in Polish city of Zamość, one of its entrepreneurs prepared special banners for Euro 2012. He’s yet another victim of famous Polish tax-office. The one that makes devastating effect on lots of Polish companies. Without any reasons or notices, the tax-office didn’t make a tax-return of 1.9 million PLN (about 430 k Euro) to the company. The entrepreneur – Zbigniew Stonoga had to fire 15 persons so his company wouldn’t close. The mistakes are on purpose, so he won’t get any ticket for this. If I were him I would expect millions of rutine controls from many different offices and state-bureaus which met robbed A2 highway constructors

The future isn’t about owning things, it’s about leasing them

John Lennon once sang:

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can

And as it turns out, he may have been right in predicting the future. No possession is an old idea, that did not work quite well, when it was implemented by the communists. But believe or not, like it or not our world may be heading into that direction once again. This time not because of the communism ideology, but sheer and honest capitalism greed :) So how did that happen? Continue reading

Kony 2012 from a different point of view – from Uganda

Western media are praising Kony 2012 campaign or criticizing it… if so, they do it mostly because it’s a yet another campaign run mostly on the Internet, without the TV or radio. It shows where the TV and other traditional media are heading. But Al Jazeera is a media company with a little different point of view and interests. That is why you should check out their report on the #Kony 2012.

Lets say you’re the government… and you see that something like the Internet goes out of control

GovernmentWith all this SOPA buzz going around lets stop for a moment and put ourselves in governments body. So you are the government, your goal? Wealth of the state? Kind of, because everybody cares mostly for himself, caring for the other organization like… the state is usually put behind the personal interests. Don’t forget about this fact in further reading of this post.

What governments like and what they dislike? Government like every other organization has its assets. Although in this case, these assets are vast – it’s the whole country, its resources, people, capital, technologies, infrastructure etc., etc. The government loves the idea of control over these assets.

What kind of people work on SOPA

SOPA censorshipHey there are pictures from satellites here, this isn’t good. Goddamn! I can see the White House, damn! My summer house is on that thing, I wonder if… nooo this is also on this website! We have got to take this of the Internet, how you call it? Google maps? I hope the Russians haven’t seen this already. This has satellite view of everything! Not safe! Very dangerous! I hope China had this site blocked, so they won’t see these pictures.

Laugh or cry? To us this level of Internet knowledge is funny, but let us not forget that these kind of people make the law in many countries, and even if they don’t, they do have the influence and power.

SOPA will kill Google firewall

Hard to believe? 2 years ago continues cyber-attacks from China were made public by Google. These attacks were targeting major big tech companies within US. Lots of sources claimed that China was attacking American companies for several years and Google was the first one to blow the whistle on the issue. The White House was put in a bad position by Google, they had to condemn the attacks, though they probably didn’t want to do that. After all their economy, thus political life depends on China and its money assets ready to finance Americas debt. So they’ve condemned the attacks, Google got out of China  and bloggers, reporters and journalists started digging.

Some pretty amazing facts came to light. Some internet security spec-ops guy started his career protecting government networks against foreign attacks. On that job, he became so preoccupied with the scale of Chinese hacking that a senior military officer told him to stop talking about it, with the gruff explanation that “the reason this is still going on is that the Chinese government now owns us.” Continue reading

There is 1 thing that worries me about clouditems

Just before I will share that disturbing thought with you I must say: I’m a BIG fan of clouditems idea, even though I haven’t seen it yet – it hasn’t been public yet. I love the idea of reusing, sharing, giving away etc. of items and materials that we don’t need but other people may want it very much. Check my post about sharing everything to know the idea.

Now about the potential downside… Recently there has been a lot of fuzz about occupy wall street movement. The 99 percenters demanded bringing to justice those rich bankers, they’ve showed their disapproval of the current situation. IMO they were all wrong. They were in the wrong place. It’s the White House that should be occupied not the Wall Street. It’s the White House that made those bankers feel safe and secure so they could risk all of our money and get away with it. They were bailed out, they knew they could do anything, because the government would help them in case of emergency. Continue reading
