A thought on internet security

For the most part, the park was a peacefully place. But the muggings increased and so people rightfully demanded safety and justice. The internet is no different. As cowards continue to assault people online we can expect increased law enforcement. Enter NSA et al. There will always be unfortunates for whom basic respect for others eludes them. And so, we need to protect ourselves from them. However, perhaps we shouldn’t be lead by the US model of law enforcement – as we have seen in recent events.

Due to changes in the Twitter feed algorithm there are now 40% more Tweets in my feed. Twitter’s value was its signal, and these sorts of changes make Twitter far less interesting now. Every time I open Twitter I see a Tweet in my feed from people I don’t follow. I’m not talking about ads, I don’t mind those, they keep Twitter going. I’m talking about random Tweets because a person I follow favorited it. It’s very noisy.
