Nov 28, 2010 The TSA is invasive, annoying - and unconstitutional

QUOTE: Neither virtual strip-searches nor intrusive pat-downs should be considered "routine," and therefore courts should rule that neither can be used for primary screening.

Washington Post
Jul 21, 2010 The Web Means the End of Forgetting

QUOTE: So much of what we say, and of what others say about us, goes into our permanent — and public — digital files. The fact that the Internet never seems to forget is threatening, at an almost existential level, our ability to control our identities; to preserve the option of reinventing ourselves and starting anew; to overcome our checkered pasts.

Jul 04, 2010 Adrian Johns's "Piracy: The Intellectual Property Wars From Gutenberg to Gates"

QUOTE: In his invaluable book "Piracy," Adrian Jones argues that the tendency of intellectual property battles to undermine privacy is not new.

Washington Post
Nov 28, 2008 Google’s Gatekeepers

QUOTE: As more and more speech migrates online, to blogs and social-networking sites and the like, the ultimate power to decide who has an opportunity to be heard, and what we may say, lies increasingly with Internet service providers, search engines and other Internet companies like Google, Yahoo, AOL, Facebook and even eBay....some House Democrats and Republicans have introduced a bipartisan bill called the Global Online Freedom Act, which would require that Internet companies disclose to a newly created office in the State Department all material filtered in response to demands by foreign governments.

Apr 13, 2007 Who’s Watching the F.B.I.? (The Way We Live Now)

QUOTE: The latest and most serious post-9/11 civil-liberties abuse to emerge from Washington ... [involves] “national-security letters,” which the F.B.I. has secretly used to scrutinize the financial data, travel records and telephone logs of thousands of U.S. citizens and residents. National-security letters are especially susceptible to abuse because they’re not subject to independent review by a judge or magistrate and because the recipients are forbidden to discuss them.

New York Times
Mar 09, 2007 The Brain on the Stand

QUOTE: The influence of what some call neurolaw is clearly growing. Neuroscientific evidence has persuaded jurors to sentence defendants to life imprisonment rather than to death; .... Should courts be in the business of deciding when to mitigate someone’s criminal responsibility because his brain functions improperly, whether because of age, in-born defects or trauma? As we learn more about criminals’ brains, will we have to redefine our most basic ideas of justice?

Aug 11, 2002 Obstruction of Judges

QUOTE: The confirmation process for federal judges is in something of a meltdown…Appellate nominations are now provoking a level of partisan warfare that used to be reserved for the Supreme Court.
