Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I just lost any interest once they used the cheesy flying toilet paper in the wind with Matrix-style print to Cyber-ize stuff. That shit's was ok for kids 20 year ago, not for adults.
The sad thing is I just know they will keep this program on air for its true purpose: Scare the shit out of technophobes so that the government can pass more laws to spy on us.
So we should all use that line of defence:
If speeding, go faster to prevent arrest ==> Win!
If running over somebody, run away and kill witnesses to prevent arrest ==> Win!

If [hurting other people for profit], pay government or Kill/harass people to prevent arrest ==> Win!

I bet if they came out with a game where you are an NSA agent snooping on other players to make them do things would be banned, too.
I'm more worried about MS EEE'ing FLAC/MKV.
Yes they will. Just like cable companies, they will get the best laws that money can buy.
I predict in 10 years: money is privacy
No money == no Certs == No privacy
After all, money is speech (Thanks, you corrupt USSC!)
No money == STFU
Replace Cisco, and Akamai and then maybe I'll be convinced it's better than the current situation. But it's still oxymoronic service: A central authority that *REQUIRES* trust for people who don't trust anybody.
And what do you do for countries with draconian Cert laws like England? (They want a copy of your root cert)
The resulting entity would have to be incorporated in Iceland or something. FAR away from 5-eye's dragnets.
