I was just roaming the internet for some interesting reads and I came across [this very interesting paper](http://www.priv.gc.ca/information/research-recherche/2011/forcese_201107_e.asp) about how to define a legal framework for the "reasonable expectation of privacy" when it comes to our new cyber-existence. I thought I'd share it with you guys, and see what you think about agencies being able and allowed to collect and analyse huge amounts of data about any individual they like. The main point of the article is that the conventional wisdom that says that when you roam outside, in public places, you can't expect privacy (i.e., people (incl. authorities) could …

Before I start, sorry if this is in the wrong place and also I am aware that this is not a legal forum and thus I should take proper legal advice but any heads up would be appreciated. Ok, So I am looking to create and host my own website and also host a friends website on my server, both of which would allow third parties to submit content in the form of forum posts and comments. I have been doing some research into this and now I've become terrified of all the laws and potential consequences that I didn't …

3. Consider the Boolean expression F(A,B,C) = ABC + A'C' + A'B'. (a) Using the laws of Boolean algebra, derive an expression that uses only AND and NOT operators. (b) Using the laws of Boolean algebra, derive an expression that uses only OR and NOT operators. First, I am sorry for my poor grammar. :'( I have tried every laws I could find and still couldn't solve it, heres 1 example of what I have done: ABC + A'C' + A'B' = ABC + A'C'(B + B') + A'B'(C+C') = ABC + A'C'B + A'B'C' + A'B'C + A'B'C' = …

Imagine my surprise when I learned this morning that an [URL="http://news.cnet.com/8301-13924_3-10216733-64.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-5"]IBM researcher believes[/URL] that Moore's Law-- that the number of transistors on a micro processor would double nearly every two years-- could be nearing the end of its run. Amazingly Moore made this prediction in 1965 and his law has stuck pretty much dead true for almost 45 years. So it's Friday and it got me wondering, if Moore's Law is going down, what could this mean to other famous laws: [B]Murphy's Law: Anything that Can Go Wrong Will Go Wrong.[/B] Over the next several years, some researchers believe this …

Unless you were unplugged and on living on a Himalayan mountaintop last week, you no doubt heard about the Great Facebook Flap of 2009. If not, then be sure to read [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4008.html"]Ron Miller's excellent recap[/URL] at TechTreasures. ComputerWorld's Frank Hayes posted a great article this morning that takes a look at how the [URL="http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=334476"]"Facebook fiasco shows how much is out of IT's hands[/URL]." Hayes says last week's issues with Facebook speak to a increasing problem facing IT departments these days -- there's no longer a simple linear relationship between computers users and IT professionals. Now there business partners, vendors, suppliers, …

Under new a new law adopted in the UK, the British police are now permitted to access data stored on home computers without benefit of a search warrant. Worse yet, officers are allowed to hack into computers remotely without notifying its owner. Even though officials say these methods would only be used in extreme circumstances, civil rights groups are understandably agitated. According to the [URL="http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/politics/article5439604.ece"]Times Online[/URL], "Under the Brussels edict, police across the EU have been given the green light to expand the implementation of a rarely used power involving warrantless intrusive surveillance of private property. The strategy will allow …
