Paging George Orwell …
This week, the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald posted a classified court order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that ordered Verizon Business Network Services to produce the following “tangible things”:
All call detail records or “telephony metadata” created by Verizon for communications (i) between the United States and abroad; or (ii) wholly within the United States, including local telephone calls.
And this just in, apparently the Guardian has a 41-page Powerpoint training document containing the National Security Agency’s training document for collecting user data “directly from the servers” of Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google, Facebook, Paltalk (people still use this?), YouTube, Skype, AOL, and Apple.
Also on today on #TWiBRadio, we also talk about the consequences for a reporter who overstepped and I read some hilariously translated Google voicemail transcriptions.
And this morning on #amTWiB, L.Joy, Imani, and the rest of the #TheMorningCrew started the movement to FREE DANE COOK! … sort of, making “annoying a police officer” a felony, and challenging gender stereotypes.
