Search engine can now be used to retrieve search history (and more) of anyone in the UK.

Yay!!...the U.K. has just passsed a bill, known as "the Snoopers Charter", which gives the state some of the strongest powers of surveillance in the world. ISPs are now required to collect and store masses of data on their customers and their online activities. Worse than this though is that ALL the data is searchable by the police and other authorities without the need for silly checks like warrants and the like. They don't even keep a record of who is using the search engine. But it's ok....they can of course be trusted not to abuse this access.

The bill also force some companies to install back-door access into devices and software as well as weakening encryption. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh and this data is being shared with friendly countries such as the U.S. Trump will now, in theory, be able to sit at his desk and look up anyone's online activitities. But if you're not a criminal, then of course you have nothing to worry about.......

Capital Trail 2016

The weather was awful. A bit of rain, but mostly wind. Crazy wind. It was a few days until the start of the second Capital Trail bikepack adventure...or race…depending on your personal disposition. I'd already signed up and was now slowly getting my stuff together in my kitchen.
