So I thought it might be worth creating a page where we can post links that we find that are interesting? Or maybe I can just use this to store my own interesting links.

This is just totally depressing, because these powers already exist in Australia. Despite the best efforts of a number of activists, lawyers, politicians etc spooks can hack our computers and our metadata must be retained for 2 years. It's a goddam disgrace. I wrote up a pretty cursory analysis here - cursory in part because the reforms were so massive, it was hard to do them justice without writing War and Peace.

It does make me think: is law meaningful or not at all? If they are already doing all these things (ASIO, GCHQ, NSA) why bother making it lawful? But then they are bothering because there must be some esteem they place in the system? Sometimes I think being a lawyer involves spending a huge amount of time linguistically dancing around the truth.

 I recently started using an email service,ProtonMail, which offers end-to-end encryption for emails between users and even to external mail addresses. It has been designed by some smart physics cookies at CERN.

The theme of who might be 'the villain' attacking our privacy has come up several times during our discussions in class. Well, I have not been able to use my ProtonMail? account for the last two days due to a DDOS attack, as reported in this ars technica article. This is my first first-hand experience that there are some powerful people out there that hate privacy. But when it comes to their own identity, it seems that these powerful bad guys very much like to protect their own privacy, too.
