the timings required to set off the compression plastique segments simultaneously, thusly rendering a nuclear bomb ineffective without it?
That may be a good thing, as smaller business can now compete on this with larger businesses. This will in turn create market pressure on the bigger businesses.
until you disclose how much data *exactly* of how many users on average you're handing over to LEOs per request, I'ma not gonna trust you ever again.
Not just spin doctors. Commenters on the internets. Public opinion is made today by manipulating virtual peer groups on social media, discussion boards, online newspaper comment sections, newsgroups etc.
That's exactly the kind of psy-op that has been going on for weeks now in discussion forums all around the internets.
Slowly, but steadily comments pop up that put Snowden in a slightly bad light, for no good reason at all. Depending on the target audience of the forum, it's anything from "because 'MURICA" to what you just said.
Doesn't anyone notice that?
That's also why such programs are so enormously dangerous. Who in the world would know best how to manipulate public opinion? Only those whose sole reason of existance it is to peek into other peoples lives
A roommate is on there, and it works like a charm for him, he earns a wee bit of money selling bitcoins. He's thinking about how to protect himself against robberies, but I guess it's the same with any sort of dealing that involves value. So far there weren't any problems beyond the occassional buyer flaking out.
The figures for my country aren't accurate: http://world.tax-rates.org/austria/income-tax says 35% for the first bracket from 0 to 11000EUR when in fact it's 0% ( http://www.bmf.gv.at/Steuern/TippsfrdieArbeitneh_7636/SteuertarifundSteue_7922/Steuertarifund.htm )

Do you know that we are paying farmers not to grow too much crop?
We don't use corn syrup in europe, as it's production is limited and you can't buy it in stores. Solutions of white sugar or molasses are commonly used by beekeepers around here.

Sorry for the delay, I forgot that I commented here.

...it's not even funny.
I honestly think that this is a great idea. It's a novel approach to extending a kernel, especially considering NetBSD doesn't have that big of a market share and expressly focusses on supporting as many platforms as possible. Prototyping new features or certain drivers in a portable scripting language may give them a leg up in the functionality aspect of the race.
Also, LUA is super fast, small, easy to learn, concise and the C API/embedding it is straight forward.
You may knock it all you want, "because kernel land is C land", but after all bias being said and flamed, this may turn out to be a really fun, interesting and possibly very useful idea.
There's been enough GNU hurt on the desktop.
