Just Talkin’

1238631_sad_dogFor those still lingering over your morning coffee, here are two quotes worth distracting you from the Sunday funnies:

Michael Arrington (TechCrunch Founder): “I’m worried about privacy–the companies out there gathering data on us, the stuff we do on Twitter, the publicly scrapeable stuff on Facebook.  It’s amazing how much data there is out there on us.  I’m worried that it can be abused and will be abused.”

Phil Malone (Harvard Law School, Director of Berkman Center for Internet and Society’s Cyberlaw Clinic explaining that viruses can deposit illegal pornography on unwitting individuals’ computers causing the innocent to be branded sexual deviants): “Sometimes the dog does eat your homework.”

Thanks to Time and the Washington Times.

    Apropos Phil Malone’s quote, yes, but it’s rare and proper forensics can tell the difference; see also http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-10394352-83.html

  2. “Thanks to Time.”

    Don’t you mean “Thanks to Time AND the Washington Times”? since the WTimes was the the source of your second bit.

    …and kudos to you for linking to the Washington Times – is that a first for CO?
