QOTD: Bad Civic Hygiene

It’s bad civic hygiene to build technologies that could someday be used to facilitate a police state. No matter what the eavesdroppers say, these systems cost too much and put us all at greater risk. —Bruce Schneier

    People just get blinded by shiny new technology (not a bash on Apple! Promise!) and don’t stop to think about other possibilities.

    Some of my friends don’t understand why I read science fiction, but really a good dystopia novel is mental excersise for what not to do. I guess I don’t understand why some people don’t read sci-fi…

    Of course, one can be a Counter-Revolutionary and work on ways to turn the Tech against the State Security Apparatus for fun and profit, right?
