Some links to peruse:

  • I’ve previously blogged about a case involving a defendant’s 5th Amendment right to refuse decrypting her laptop – the case is now moot, as the Prosecution was able to gain access to the files in question without the defendant’s help (likely from a password provided by her cooperating co-defendant). That said, in another case, a different court recently ruled the opposite, that a man accused of having child pornography was NOT obliged to decrypt the hard drive.
  • A good piece on the implications of the religious liberty argument regarding contraception and health care provided by religiously-connected institutions. The author points out that allowing that argument to be invoked by anyone would have some disturbing implications – just one more reason why no meaningful health care reform can happen until health care coverage is decoupled from employment.
  • I love old maps, and this website has a really cool interface for looking at an area and searching for them in that area.
  • Via Bruce Schneier’s blog, a FBI agent and pilot’s perspective on the useless nature of the TSA. My favorite quote among many:

I was bypassing screening (again on official FBI business) with my .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol, and a TSA officer noticed the clip of my pocket knife. “You can’t bring a knife on board,” he said. I looked at him incredulously and asked, “The semi-automatic pistol is okay, but you don’t trust me with a knife?” His response was equal parts predictable and frightening, “But knives are not allowed on the planes.”

And lastly, this is a fox, looking at another fox, on Firefox.
