Mozilla Calls CISPA an "Alarming" Threat to Privacy

CaptSwifty Perhaps this can be a catalyst (107 comments)

Perhaps this can be a catalyst for other tech companies opposing this bill; we can hope it could cause enough bad PR for companies that are supporting CISPA that they reverse their position.

Zuckerberg Made Instagram Deal Alone

CaptSwifty What will do to Facebook's future IPO? (307 comments)

What will this do to Facebook's future IPO when potential investors see a "maverick" CEO who does what he wants without consulting the board? I can't imagine a lot of fund managers will like the idea of putting billions of dollars at stake with someone like Zuckerberg spending huge sums of money without getting input from people who already own a large percentage of the company.

How does Zuckerberg own only 28% of the stock but have 57% of the voting rights? Are there really that many non-voting shareholders?

Dmitry Sklyarov Gains High-Profile Defense Lawyer

CaptSwifty Re:Let's not forget... (nope) (228 comments)

Yeah, that is a bunch of bullshit. According to that, he could be charged with it. Lets just hope that it doesn't get passed, and the DMCA is overturned. (I can hope for the best, right?)

On a side note, isn't Kevin Poulsen (the author of the article) some notourious (ex)computer criminal that was charged with espoinage? The Watchman : The Twisted Life and Crimes of Serial Hacker Kevin Poulsen by Jonathan Littman was the book I read about it. Is this the same guy?
