If you can make it to London and are worried that the Digital Economy Bill is ploughing ahead with a provision that will disconnect whole families from the Internet if one member is accused -- without trial -- of violating copyright, come along to the Open Rights Group "Stop Disconnection" demonstration tomorrow (Weds) afternoon at 1730h at Old Palace Yard (opposite Parliament, next to Westminster Abbey).

The demo will be held at Old Palace Yard (opposite Parliament, next to Westminster Abbey)

Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
