+ - Interview with EFF on their case against AT&T->

Submitted by
ntk
ntk writes "Glenn Greenwald from Salon has a long, informative interview with Cindy Cohn, the EFF attorney leading the suit against AT&T over their warrantless wiretapping of their customers. It talks about why the White House is pushing for retroactive immunity against the telco, what the suit has revealed so far, and how little Congressfolk appear to know about how Internet traffic is being monitored."

+ - Senator Holds Fast Against Telco Immunity->

Submitted by
Danny
Danny writes "Looks like the White House hasn't got its wish quite yet. Senator Chris Dodd has announced he'll put a hold on any Senate legislation that includes retroactive immunity for telcos involved in the dragnet warrantless interception of phone and net communications. There's still time to contact your own members of congress to see if they too will oppose amnesty for lawbreaking companies."

Submitted by
ntk
ntk writes "Britain's Open Rights Group sent technically knowledgeable members to act as electoral observers in the UK's first e-voting trials, with disturbing results. Their report mentions, among other foul-ups, that officials forgetting to scroll in Excel almost led to the wrong party winning control of the Scottish parliament. More in their full report here."
