Opinion | Motherhood in the Age of Fear - The New York Times
«In the end I was lucky. The prosecutor agreed not to pursue charges in exchange for 100 hours of community service. My family and close friends stood by me. I was not placed on a registry of child neglecters. I didn’t lose my job. The truth is, I don’t feel that bad about what happened to me anymore. Instead I worry about all the ways our country seems to be at war with children, even as we insist our greatest responsibility is to protect them.»

Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook hearing was an utter sham - Zephyr Teachout
«Facebook is a known behemoth corporate monopoly. It has exposed at least 87 million people’s data, enabled foreign propaganda and perpetuated discrimination. We shouldn’t be begging for Facebook’s endorsement of laws, or for Mark Zuckerberg’s promises of self-regulation. We should treat him as a danger to democracy and demand our senators get a real hearing.»

removing everything from github
"Github recently drafted an update to their Terms Of Service. The new TOS is potentially very bad for copylefted Free Software. It potentially neuters it entirely, so GPL licensed software hosted on Github has an implicit BSD-like license."

Eben Moglen on GPL Compliance and Building Communities: What Works | | The source for Linux information
"Spontaneous compliance is the only conceivable way to run a legal system, I must tell you. The United States is a country with an extraordinary amount—apparently—of complaining about taxes every four years or every two. But every year, Americans pay their taxes, and they don’t do it because they see crowds of people sent to jail. They do it because spontaneous compliance is the way law really works."
