    Science and Technology : Why we are adding free VPN in Opera

    It doesn't seem like it would be wise to rely on Opera for this feature, but it's an interesting move for them to try and increase their market share. The privacy angle is big these days.

    Law Forum : Attorney General Lynch Hopes Apple Will Comply With Court Order

    The FBI is feigning technical powerlessness while getting the secret changes they wanted for the rules, approved by FISA court, governing the access of the NSA's prism treasure trove.

    Black People Politics : Is The Black Vote Necessary To Win the US Presidency?

    Nah you're not wrong. I was just making a different point is all. If you grabbed a bunch of White women and a group of White men, sat them down, and started asking questions about their political leanings, the liberal among them would most likely be women for a number of reasons. It's also part...

    Black People Politics : Is The Black Vote Necessary To Win the US Presidency?

    It's necessary for the more moderate or left of center parties to win (basically Democrats), and it's been the reason conservatives have been trying to go after the Black and Hispanic vote. The last few exit polls for presidential elections show that most White people vote conservative. In...

    Black People Politics : If Edward Snowden Is Right About Clinton's Emails, Bernie Sanders Will Win a Landslide Victory

    NYT has an interesting piece about how Clinton's story has changed by comparing initial statements with stuff said or reported later on. They offer some commentary too. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/10/20/us/politics/hillary-clinton-emails-statements.html

    Black People Politics : If Edward Snowden Is Right About Clinton's Emails, Bernie Sanders Will Win a Landslide Victory

    I think the article raised some good points about Hilary Clinton's personal e-mail server. It's basically a repository of extremely sensitive data completely outside official control. Personally, I wish they'd talk about the setup more. Was it patched? Did she use encryption when she sent data...

    Science and Technology : Atom - The Hackable Text Editor

    Glad you like it. To be honest, I paid ~60 for one of the text editors I use (sublime text 2) and Atom really does all of what it does for me at no cost. I needed an editor for Windows instead of trying to do everything i need to setup vim. It is a little daunting to open up one of these...
