Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The beauty of the Internet is that you can do your part all by yourself, without waiting for anyone else to get their shit together first. You don't need to start a movement, you don't need to tear anything down or build some international organization to oversee everything.

If other people want to continue using commercial / government crap, well, that's their prerogative. If it's as bad as you say then they'll eventually see the light and the Internet will be a better place for them too.

This case has nothing to do with spying on foreign powers. It's about federal agents searching through the private effects of an individual, which is explicitly, specifically, Constitutionally illegal without a warrant.
Well said. You saved me the trouble of writing a comment not half so clear and complete.
Ask professional drivers. These "ethical" questions are ridiculous. Avoid obstacles if possible; if not, slow down. It's better to crash into something you can't avoid as slowly as possible. It's also best to maintain control just in case the situation changes.
