ORG Hosts Workshops for Talking to Your MP about DEB

With the deliberations around the now tabled Digital Economy Bill in full swing, Cory shares news on Boing Boing of the Open Rights Group hosting workshops this Saturday specifically on how to discuss this problematic bill with elected representatives.

If you are in or near any of Manchester, Sheffield, Edinburgh or London, check out the post for full details. You can follow ORG on Twitter for their live tweets of deliberations over aspects of the bill and its proposed amendments to get spun up on the relevant issues, too, as the workshops look to be focusing more on manner of approach. I’m sure they’ll provide any necessary background as well for any interested folks who may need it.

TCLP 2010-01-17 News

This is news cast 203, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.

In the intro a quick overview on my convention schedule for this year.

This week’s security alert is just an in depth discussion of a concerning interview that revealed some internal privacy issues at Facebook.

In this week’s news I spend more time on Google’s announcement that it is reviewing its operations in China. Wired has more details from an inside source. Glyn Moody suggests a reasonable hypothesis of why now. And Mac Slocum has a bevy of opinions at O’Reilly Radar. China has also already responded. The other stories this week are an essay on the benefit of viewing HTML source and its potentially endangered future and a new initiative that may ultimately allow users to build their own laptops.

Following up this week a further refinement of the FLOSS license icons and the UK offers a compromise on the pirate catcher powers in the Digital Economy Bill.
