CISPA - They Never Quit

The Internet privacy crushing Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act -- it's just like every other chilling piece of legislation destroying civil liberties and rights as citizens. The War on Privacy has picked up the support of 800 major corporations: They want to know everything about you, for sales! The votes is coming with lightning speed as well. Tasks for the activists are not getting any easier.

Beware of gift phones. They may be set up to spy on you, and not just a little. Anybody can do it, and every part of the phone's use becomes available for inspection through the procedures. (.pdf)

Facebook officially changed some of their "1337sp34k" settings so that females are no longer "54ndw1ch m4k3r5."

In case you missed the news, Coachella is on live on Three stages.

Harden you Android phone like a rock- secure, encrypt, anonymize

If Aereo can win this court case it will revolutionize device broadcasting. They may win on fair use because of the hardware they employ, or may even simply be exempt from interference. Futuristic tape dubbing via remote.

Neon Indian delivers a super-hyped, comfortable stage presence, but they still sound like shoegaze to some of us. They played Coachella today. They were even better at Spanish Moon in Baton Rouge in 2010. The amplifiers negated the pop sound almost entirely

The Next Projects

Friday, April 13: Recording vocals. Roommate's latest album is retail errywherr; that deal is open, so I'll be working on the new abum wih it in mind that it will be sold on a "Pay If You Like It" basis and on iTunes...

-note on the timeline: swamped IRL right now, seriously, so next release is gonna be a minute.
-video production in progress with kdenlive (stalled because of rain)
-more soundfonts. I burned up the last 20 (wait, so not true, just needed to look at them more closely [listen to them])
-next album a slower tempo acoustic track will divide all hi-BPM songs, so like starting in a few minutes...

- The United States Postal Service has vast digital spying data. The data could be used to violate rights, or it could be considered an extremely high value corporate asset. The people: target or price tag?

Learn things.

[So tired of people asking if I use Fruity Loops. No I do not use Fruity Loops. Windows: Kill it with fire. What about this site suggests anything related to Windows? Fruity Loops... candy ass, lame-o, entry level BS, pfft.]
