While working in Canada I had a boss who was a US citizen, but he had been born in Canada to US married parents. He had the tax id for his parents to claim him as a dependent till 18. But he did not have a SSN number. He refused to work in the states because he didn't want to get a SSN number and thus have to pay taxes for the rest of his life, but he was still a US citizen. I have no clue if that was legal or not. And I have no idea if this matches your circumstances, but it may be something you want to look into. See if they will be forced to pay taxes even if they don't have an SSN number just the tax id (which is different for children, or so I've been told).
I am shocked that someone posted something potentially informative.
Sarkeesian was the first to really stand up to it in a very public way, did a lot to draw attention to the problem and documented it in detail. I think it's fair to say that we wouldn't have come this far without her.
For me it's hard to pick between her and Snowden. Both have done a lot to draw attention to important issues, at great personal risk.
Snowden blow open something I already knew. But Sarkeesian let me in on the child thread of the above post. I was utterly unaware that so many readers of Slashdot were...well...whatever one calls those kind of people.
I guess they are trying to argue that the placement of the items is the connection?
Pretty much. I suspect this is one of those situations where "correlation != causality" is an appropriate comment.
I would say instead that, given a sufficiently large enough data set, patterns and correlations are bound to appear. The likelihood that thousands of paintings were analyzed in this way and no matches were found, purely on a random basis, is very small.
large, flat, a couple of nice drawers, place to keep pens, pencils, a stapler, my kneadable eraser, and room for a teevee, good loudspeakers, and a nice computer. and a comfortable chair. now that's a nice desktop environment.
Don't forget a motorized standing desk. Who wants to sit all day?
It doesn't matter. Either there's an airgap, where nothing can get out regardless, so it doesn't matter, or their's a hop along the path you don't control so the security of your device doesn't matter.
If you have an Intel processor, then there is already a radio backdoor built in. See http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/enterprise-security/what-is-vpro-technology-video.html
We need some developers to setup-in and develop in-browser Firefox/Chrome extensions
And we need a USB keyboard with encryption, in order to avoid key-loggers.
