Subject: O'Reilly Podcast Includes NSA Wiretapping News Scoop
To: kcpm-moderate at davidnicol.com


"Distributing the Future" this week features a scoop we
thought was worth sharing:

Wiretapping doesn't require someone lurking in the bushes with a
directional antenna and headphones, or a pair of aligator clips and a
tape recorder, or someone sneaking into your room while you're out to
place a transmitter on your phone. In the U.S., if it's the government
doing the wiretapping, it's technically simple. At the O'Reilly Emerging
Telephony Conference Jack Herrington, author of "Podcasting Hacks"
interviewed Electronic Frontier Foundation Chairman of the Board Brad
Templeton about the technical, social, and political aspects of
wiretapping. At the end there's a nice juicy hint about upcoming action
from the EFF with regards to the recent NSA wiretapping case.
