  1. (Some very serious warnings…)

    1. The US government can already decrypt whatever they want to:

    And, pay attention to revelations concerning “bugdoors” present in cryptographic software, like the “Heartbleed” bug:

    2. Also, every proprietary (/”non-open source”) computer operating system – like Windows, iOS, and such (and, even partially “open source” operating systems, like Android) – can have backdoors already installed in it, from the source, without people having the practical means to even know it. And, in fact, ever since the later versions of Windows 95 (when people started to seriously use the “World Wide Wiretap”) that Windows is suspected of having a backdoor in it:

    So, if you’re not using one of the main GNU/Linux distributions, without any proprietary (/”closed source”) software installed, you can forget about security.


    If you really want to send messages not supposed to be read by the powers-that-be, forget about using the Internet – and, even computers with new Intel chips, for that matter:

  2. I’m downloading the video to watch it later, but I must comment that the title “Obamessiah Meets Pope Francis as Misleaders Converge on UN” is more than worth the price of admission.

    Most who frequent New World Next Week will probably find this just another example of excellent work. However, I suggest thinking deeply about that title. It alone is worth a long conversation over dinner. It is elegance with a punch.

    Well done!

    Make of this what you will, but there will be an overabundance of EMF at the site.

  4. macburns says:

    Hey-hooray!! (he’s probably a socialist though :/ )

  5. When there is the next great “911” type cyber-attack that will introduce the “iPatriot Act”, it will also be boosted no doubt all the series of “hacks” and “cyber-attacks” that have occurred over the course of the last decade.

    It’s the perfect cover for establishment officials to say, “See? It’s not just this here great attack that is the reason for this legislation that we need, it’s because this has occurred for so long and we never did anything about it until something big happened, so therefore this legislation is justified.”

    And as we’ve all mentioned, it’s so easy to fake and manipulate cyber-attacks precisely because it’s easier to cover your tracks. All the media has to do is report from their “anonymous sources” that “that’s what happened” and there is no way to vet out that information.

  6. I am a bit more cautious of the good news. Libraries that provide for checking out 3D printing machines are great, but the “library of things” seems eerily familiar to the “internet of things” which is one of the centerpieces of transhumanism.

    I believe it’s a very sensitive and fine line between promoting technologies such as 3D printing which allows for the sharing economy and empowers individuals, versus technology that can potentially enslave individuals in the increasing “Smart Grid”/”Smart City” wet dream of transhumanists.

      I quite agree with you AoC. In preparation for some kind of “debate” with my various types of students on the topics of fablabs, smart cities, living labs, smart grids, technocracy etc. I came quickly across the following links (the first a 2013 blurb in French for a conference sponsored by “fondaterra):–espaces-de-coworking-fablab-living-lab-et-smartcities.html

      that I thought you might find interesting (if you haven’t already seen them).

      Well! What a rabbit hole! Exploring the notion of the “Living Lab” requires becoming versed in such concepts as “Ambient Intelligence” and the “Experience Economy”!

      And one very clear element emerges: The Massachusetts Institute for Technology has (unsurprisingly) been cooperating with big business and the DOD in creating “ambient intelligence” and “living labs”:

      “…Oxygen is an ambitious project involving some 250 researchers at LCS and its sister Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (AI). Its goal is to develop computer systems that cater to people, rather than the other way around. The project will bring an abundance of computation and communication to users through natural spoken and visual interfaces, making it easy for them to automate repetitive human tasks, find the information they need, and collaborate with others through space and time… We are delighted that, together with our partners in the Oxygen project, we can now go after the worthy goal of pervasive, human centered computing.”

      Gotta love that word “Pervasive”!

      The MIT Oxygen project was initially launched in the Fall of 1999 with seed funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The Oxygen Alliance may include one or two additional members in the future.”

      “… In the years after, these developments grew more mature. In 1999, Philips joined the Oxygen alliance, an international consortium of industrial partners within the context of the MIT Oxygen project,[3] aimed at developing technology for the computer of the 21st century. In 2000, plans were made to construct a feasibility and usability facility dedicated to Ambient Intelligence. This HomeLab officially opened on 24 April 2002…”

      The term living lab has emerged in parallel from the ambient intelligence research communities[13] context and from the discussion on experience and application research (EAR).[14] The emergence of the term is based on the concept of user experience[15][16][17][18][19][20] and ambient intelligence (AmI).[21][22][23]…”

        What does that mean?

      • nosoapradio says:

        “The official version of the Citizen Driven Innovation Handbook is out!

        “We are glad to inform you that the official version of the pre-announced “Citizen Driven Innovation Handbook”,

        co-production of World Bank and ENoLL, is published now.

        This work is a product of the staff of The World Bank and members of the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL).

        The guidebook aims to bring citizen-driven innovation to policy makers and change agents around the globe, by spreading good practice on open and participatory approaches as applied to digital service development in different nations, climates, cultures, and urban settings.

    well… Mr Corbett’s 4-minute-ish “How to boycott big tech” video would seem somehow pertinent…

    Having spent just a couple hours looking into fablabs, smartcities and their roots in elite agendas…looking at the unmitigated and unsurprising enthousiasm of the world bank, the UN, universities worldwide along with that of municipalities and more or less grass-roots associations around the world…

    the question is not about the near-absence of skepticism on the subject or the hypocrisy of the notion that open source fablabs/smart cities come from the “bottom up”, come from the people who collaborate in this project thanks to the library of things and the blessing of the fortunes and DOD-stamped cutting edge know-how that validate the ‘ordinary” citizen’s initiative and make it possible…

    the question is not about libraries or people’s witting or unwitting involvement in realizing the big data grid lock on humanity… It’s not about whether the Library of Things is connected so to speak with the worldwide MIT/DOD fablab/Agenda 21 network or this network’s connection with smartcities or whether smart cities are built on the necessity of ubiquitous sensors, or whether the elites have bought up the ambitious and/or well-meaning mayors of the world to finance sustainable new businesses to promote and feed this project and have a light years advance on any dissidence…

    It’s about finding a way around this grid lock, finding an unmonitored parallel universe tunnel running through this well-advanced and undeniable project for creating environments designed for the vast majority that monitor humanity’s most silent footstep. Just in case this “dream” turns out to be a nightmare.

    If the library of things helps us find that tunnel then it qualifies as good news.
