  • Reading – Doctor Who Episodes – “THEY ARE NOT MISSING BUT DESTROYED THE END” (Rich Johnston) http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/06/20/doctor-who-episodes-they-are-not-missing-but-destroyed-the-end/ … 20:13
  • Drat. This means I need to manually post another daily summary. :-) 20:13
  • Fun Read -> RT @AthertonKD: Greenwald and Schindler, Fistfight in Secrecy http://sfy.co/s9Js  #storify #snowden #nsa 21:58
  • Looks like more Greenwald NSA stuff today (and I realized I missed a bit earlier too). I’ll have to catch up soon, but you know.. work. 22:40
  • From the bit I’ve skimmed though, seems like more “within the law” stuff. Bad law, allows way more than it should. But still legal. 22:43
  • Of course, point is making public just how expansively law is being used. Q is if enough people will think it is overreach to change law. 22:44
  • Wish the answer was yes. Suspect the answer is no. Majority of public OK with broad surveillance in exchange for perceived incr in safety. 22:45
