Electronic Frontier Foundation cofounder Mitch Kapor will neither confirm nor deny reports in yesterday's New York Times that he resigned from the board of Groove Networks Inc. because it is selling its peer-to-peer information software to the Total Information Awareness program. Well, it would be nice to believe the initial reports were true.

  5. Duh…when was the last time congress put an end to any bull shit?

  6. From what I’ve read, they (TIA) were using grooves (secure) collaboration software to develope TIA projects. I.e., using something not vulnerable to TIA to build TIA.

  7. Duh…when was the last time congress put an end to any bull shit?

    Well, there was welfare reform, although that kind of thing is the exception, not the rule
