        “Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scrubs their Fukushima Cesium radiation contamination data. The test results from 2011 and 2012 seem to be gone, and some of their 2013-2014 data seems to be missing. Could it be tied to the arrest of anti-nuclear activist Dana Durnford?”

( if anyone is following this blog)

Often I think to put something here, thinking it is in danger of being 'lost,' and then do not.

I have come to think my standards too stringent.  

It occurs to me that it may be useful as a mirror of many things that I read.  I am of course reminded that as a child I was horrified by what became of the library at Alexandria, and so, as I grew, amassed quite a personal library, notable for its breadth as well as depth; this comes to mind because, while the central libraries, open to the public, yet remain, most of my personal holdings perished in a house fire.  So  must say this endeavor is useful only assuming that there is never a future difficulty with the hosting platform.  (Note to self....)

I will, however, endeavor to always include a non-breakable URL link to whatever links I post.

Thank you.  Leave a comment: surprise me.

Be seeing you.

FBI Removes Public Endorsement Of Encryption From Website

  • I got this tweet when Cory Doctorow published it, but couldn't find the missing info -- that is, the endorsement of encryption is still up, as a press release for the Los Angeles division of the FBI.  Upon seeing Techdirt's writeup (link below), I had the address of the scrubbed page in question -- and upon seeing it archived only once by the Wayback Machine, thought I would do a post...

  • BACKGROUND LINK #1: "As crypto wars begin, FBI silently removes sensible advice to encrypt your devices" BoingBoing
  • BACKGROUND LINK #2: "FBI Quietly Removes Recommendation To Encrypt Your Phone... As FBI Director Warns How Encryption Will Lead To Tears"-- Techdirt.
  • BACKGROUND LINK #3: "Everybody Knows FBI Director James Comey Is Wrong About Encryption, Even the FBI" -- Techdirt
