Link 20 Apr 5 notes The Government is Silencing Twitter and Yahoo, and It Won't Tell Us Why | American Civil Liberties Union»

The ACLU is troubled, as the Court should be, by the government’s overuse of gag orders to prevent public and judicial scrutiny of its invasions of citizens’ privacy. Transparency concerning judicial documents like the ones at issue ensures fairness, decreases bias, improves public perception of the justice system, and enhances the chances that the resulting orders will be well-justified and narrowly tailored. These interests are particularly acute where, as here, the government relies on a controversial statutory authority affecting the First Amendment rights of private individuals and where at least one court has openly questioned the applicability of that authority.

Neutral is a new typeface from Kai Bernau — underway since 2005 — that aims to homogenise a number of popular 20th-century sans serifs “to create a typeface free of all connotations or associations that could distract a reader from the text, a font that delivers the character of the written material untouched by the character of the typeface design”. His influences included Plato’s doctrine of Ideas, the Conceptual Art movement, and, most interestingly:

… the ideas of 16th-century tea ceremony master Sen no Rikyū, who greatly influenced the wabi-cha style of chanoyu tea ceremony. This style tries to attain perfection in the essential aspects of the ceremony by the removal of anything which could divert the focus from the essential elements: the tea and the interaction of host and guests.

The entire history and rationale is an enlightening read.

The Computer Security Group of The University of Texas at Dallas has a tumblr with some enciphered short stories (good reads too) if you’re interested in trying your hand at cryptanalysis. They are demo problems they used to teach the use of CrypTool, which is definitely worth a look as well.

:D
People sharing my crypto problems!

Earlier this week, we wrote about the latest defense by Homeland Security of their laptop search policies that (they claim) give them broad coverage to search laptops within 100 miles of the border. The latest bit of news was that an internal review found that there was minimal benefits to one’s civil liberties in not searching their laptops, so it was okay (think about that sentence for a bit). 
Two thirds of all Americans live in this zone.

The Library of Congress has made a ton of images available of women working during WWII — actual real-life riveting Rosies. You can see a bunch more at Stuff Mom Never Told You.
