It seems counter-intuitive, but maybe electronic transmission of data is actually more secure than physical transport? Wipe all devices before crossing borders with them, then pull the backup over the internet (through a properly secured connection, of course).

BitCoins are too much in use to ever really go down in value for any length of time now that China is in the game.
They've dropped steadily for most of 2014, though. One could argue that that all of that was still correcting the bubble in late 2013, but that correction has lasted well over a year now. There hasn't really been a good time to hold on to Bitcoin since then, with a few short-term exceptions.
Yeah, Ukraine would never trade Snowden to the US for military aid against Russia.
Well, if the US were willing to risk an armed conflict with Russia in order to get their hands on Snowden, they don't need to wait...

> What a fucking babby.
how is linus formed
Also, most places that do use them internally (eg. the apt repositories) seem to only use the adjective and ditch the animal.
acting with such impunity, you can get in trouble with the law

While his original idea has some sound points, the ideological militancy with which he pursues it does more harm to free software than good at this point. BSD-style licenses are not the enemy of free software.
Shunning BSD goes far beyond attacking non-free software; it's shunning free software proponents who don't shun non-free software. What's next, refusing to work with developers who also contribute to BSD projects? Refusing to work with developers who don't refuse to work with those developers? Take that far enough and you're basically on your own.
That's pretty optimistic for a centralized site that seems to do exactly what the Pirate Bay got shut down for...
