PRISM is very cheap!

Ok, so I just have one question relating to whole PRISM affair: how come it is so cheap? It is supposed to cost the taxpayers only 20 million $. That’s the retail price for all the servers NSA needs to have to gather, store and analyse the desired data from the famous 9 tech companies. Don’t you think that’s a suspiciously low price? Well if it’s real than I would like the NSA to do the hosting for me, looks like they are freaking cheap.

So maybe the core of this affair lays somewhere else: they are not using any of their servers. Maybe everything is being processed on tech companies servers?

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…

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

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.

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 for dummies

For the past decades you voted on politicians mostly basing on things you have seen/heard/read in traditional media. They always had some control over these media. Now it has changed and social media became more powerful, they (governments/ politicians) don’t have such power or control over these media. This can lead to unexpected change of power, or other events not wanted by the people ruling our countries. That is why they want to gain that control through SOPA.
