web - Killer Mike Educates Stephen Colbert - Killer Mike tells you what you should do with your free time

A friend of mine forwarded me a video link with an interview from Killer Mike where he explain that he is talking to kids what life is all about and why Bernie Sanders should be the next president of the United States of America.
Well, president is something else, but what he said about "what to do with your life" and how I got it is pretty cool and fitting to my beliefs.
Go out of your community, especially when you earn enough money to pay your bills and buy stuff you are not need. Spend time with other people. You don't have to gave them money, but show them how to get things done and teach them things. This will give you more than money can buy. Whatever you want to buy will became irrelevant because your heart will be filled up with love.

web - living in a country with a telecom indsutry monopoly? Try to build your own network

[...]
Despite Mexico’s reputation for horrendous, Slim-driven telecom service and policy, it’s far from the only country that struggles with providing rural cell phone access. According to the GSM (for Global System for Mobile Communications, the standard technology behind a 2G network) Association, a consortium of commercial mobile providers from all over the world, 1.6 billion people in rural parts of developing countries don’t have access to mobile networks. That’s why Bloom and his collaborators at Rhizomatica say that if you really want to make the benefits of cell phones available to the people who need them most, it’s not enough to democratize the hardware by making the phones themselves super cheap. You have to democratize the infrastructure, the network itself. And that’s a lot harder to do.

I have no idea how much I have to honor the people around rhizomatica. They are doing things right and making the world better. In germany, we only have problems bring the internet to the people (and with internet, I mean something with higher bandwith) and even this is not an easy task (special thanks to the politics and the nearby telecom monopol). The good part about our internet problem, the hardware is there. To build up a mobile phone network (that is stable and scalls well) is something different.
Super cool that I was able to read that article. Faith in humanity restored, you know :-).

web - activist showed politicans what it means to became wiretapped

[...]
At this conference, activists Gustav Nipe and Elin Andersson set up a honeypot open wi-fi, and labeled it “Open Guest”. About a hundred of the worst surveillance hawks used the honeypot access point during the conference. The activists were logging all so-called “metadata”: which servers were contacted and how. They present their findings in an op-ed in Swedish.
[...]
They also note that the people who are responsible for the very security of the country happily use open and unencrypted wi-fi to fetch governmental correspondence, and draw some conclusions from that:

Always "good" to know how well trained the people about a topic or technology are, that are know as "the rule makers" :-(.
Nevertheless, high five for this hack.

web - Verfassungsbeschwerde gegen Kfz-Kennzeichen-Scanning

"Aufbau einer Überwachungsinfrastruktur"

Dies würde letztlich "den flächendeckenden Aufbau einer Überwachungsinfrastruktur" nicht nur für Nummernschilder, sondern auch für eingeschaltete Mobiltelefone, Telekommunikation, menschliche Bewegungen und Stimmen zur Verhaltenserkennung, Gesichter oder auch die Iris ermöglichen. "Eine solche Welt allgegenwärtiger maschineller Erfassung wäre das Ende eines unbefangenen Lebens und das Gegenteil informationeller Selbstbestimmung und Privatsphäre", heißt es im Papier.

Die Bedeutung des informationellen Selbstbestimmungsrechts wird Kauss zufolge grundlegend verfehlt, "wenn der unbescholtene Bürger widerspruchslos jegliche Überprüfung hinnehmen soll, ob er vielleicht von 'behördlichem Interesse' sein könnte". Die Grundrechte würden so unter einen Staatsvorbehalt gestellt: Nicht die Obrigkeit solle mehr eine Rechtfertigung für ihre Maßnahme vorweisen müssen, sondern der Bürger hätte sich permanent einer "Unbedenklichkeitsprüfung" zu unterziehen. Diese einseitige Fixierung auf das staatliche Eingriffsinteresse verfehle den Zweck der Grundrechte fundamental.
