    '“Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a mass disturbance.”

    That's a text message that thousands of Ukrainian protesters spontaneously received on their cell phones today, as a new law prohibiting public demonstrations went into effect.'

    "This decision creates a new crime of 'being too highly ranked [on a search engine]', or of having too great an influence'," Ms Doudet told the BBC.

    "What is perverse, is that we look for bloggers who are influential, but only if they are nice about people," she added.

    The judge told Ms Doudet to amend the title of the blog and to pay €1,500 ($2,000; £1,200).

    is idealism dead then? http://zenarchery.com/2014/08/everyo...brokenhearted/

    The joke, of course, is that every generation kills the thing they love. The hippies became yuppies; Gen X talked a lot about the revolution, and then went and got themselves some venture capital and started laying into place the oversaturated, paranoid world we live in now. A lot of them tried to tell themselves they were still punk as fuck, but it’s hard to morally reconcile the thing where you listen to Fugazi on the way to your job where you help find new ways to trick people into giving up their data to advertisers. Most people don’t even bother. They just compartmentalize. - See more at: http://zenarchery.com/2014/08/everyo....aSW0J3TY.dpuf

    Slides provided to me by the Dig's Chris Faraone show how the system was meant to work, with the software capable of distinguishing people by such characteristics as baldness, eyeglasses, skin tone, torso texture, and beards which, considering this was an indie rock concert may have overloaded their servers.
