Cory Doctorow on the scary rhetoric coming from the Conservative Prime Minister, just before the next General Election:
David Cameron says there should be no “means of communication” which “we cannot read” — and no doubt many in his party will agree with him, politically. But if they understood the technology, they would be shocked to their boots.
Every time I hear senior politicians talking about technology (usually in the context of “security” and “safety”) it becomes clear they really don’t know what they’re talking about.
