Breaking: Judge to Twitter: Give Up Wikileaks User Info

Privacy and free speech take another kick to the rubber parts today. In Alexandria, a judge decided that prosecutors can get Twitter account information as part of their Wikileaks investigation.

*sigh* I guess it is time to start replacing Windows with Linux on our laptops, downloading some anonymizing software, and scrubbing our web trail every chance we get. Why, it’s almost as if our goverment feels that it’s easier to control citizens who can be convinced to relinquish control of their privacy for the “greater good”.

/sarcasm.

I have to go to a meeting soon. In the meantime, learn more about it here:
