Today I found a very interesting article (sorry, German) which is dealing with all this NSA and PRISM stuff:

When I read this, the film, which is mentioned in the title of this article, came to my mind.

I'm really curious how this surveillance nightmare will influence our society. We all should for sure stand up and show that we are against this surveillance system. This system is not just used to fight against terrorism any longer.

efaLive 2.1 is released. This is the first "international version". Documentation is available in English and German. You can run the live system in English or German, the installed system supports all languages which are supported by efa.
The new efa 2.1 with many great new features is included in this version of efaLive. It is based on Debian GNU/Linux 7.1 (Wheezy) and should bring better support for the latest hardware. For the download and more information about the changes you can check the efaLive page.

I have started with some Firefox OS app development experiments. It looks promising and I think this is one of the big mobile platforms in the future. You can read more under Computer -> Firefox OS.

A German IT news site now has the proof: Skype, which is owned by Microsoft now, is reading our messages. Read the article here: http://www.h-online.com/security/news/item/Skype-with-care-Microsoft-is-reading-everything-you-write-1862870.html.
