I'd not realised that the reason so few hotspots existed in Italy was becuase of the tight bureaucratic control placed on anyone wanting to establish one. This is a good move, although as one commentator in the article points out it only gets Italy back to the starting line rather than taking it forward. Pity this won't have taken effect by the time I visit Bolzano this coming weekend.

I'm not sure I go along with this particular public beating of Google. In this example, if the author logged the output of kismet he may well have “inadvertently gathered personal data” if the names of the networks reflected information about the owner (as, for example, several of the networks on my street do). It’s quite possible to interpret Google’s confession as over-caution by lawyers rather than an admission of extreme guilt.

At a recent debate in the House of Lords on the Digital Economy Bill, a number of amendments designed to ensure citizen rights (as opposed to most terms of the DEB that limit citizen rights in defence on corporate rights) were rejected by the UK governmnet on the basis they would upset the delicate balance of UK law.

Yet here we see the very same Bill seriously disrupting the delicate balance of rights voters already enjoy. You'll no longer be able to offer your guests easy wifi access, ruining evolving and desirable modes of work and interaction in order to shore up the 20th century monopolies of Lord Mandelson's media friends.

I've not heard nearly enough from the opposition parties on this stuff, making me fear they will just do more of the same - not a surprise, it's advance preparation for ACTA ratification. It's election time; we need to make sure the politicians know we care about this stuff.

Once a standard is internationally ratified, it should be impossible for any patent that was not declared during the standardisation process to be exercised against implementations of the standard. This case is a poster-child for that proposed policy.

Anyone tried this? It looks like an interesting way to get photos straight onto Flickr from JavaOne, for example.

It had to happen in the end. Watch ROMs make a comeback.

I got an e-mail about this today from FON since I have a FON base station at home. Very cool, I guess this means I can cancel my BT subscription.

When you create an open community with a mind of its own, you have to expect that community to intervene in your business when you make poor decisions. It's happening to FON right now.
