UK seeks to ban users from Facebook, Twitter, etc. http://j.mp/uB1XJf (Register) "The Ministry of Justice and the Home Office will consider and scope the development of a new way of enforcing these orders, using 'cyber-tags', which are triggered by the offender breaching the conditions that have been put on their internet use, and which will automatically inform the police or probation service. If the approach shows promise we will look at expanding cyber-sanctions to a wider group of offenders." - - - Maybe they can use little "yellow stars" as the tag. That was popular with a different oppressive regime toward the middle of the 20th century. Of course, any "cyber tag" system to be even part-way effective would need to operate in conjunction with a comprehensive, mandated digital identity regime, to capture usage at other people's computers, including publicly accessible ones. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (email@example.com): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren Twitter: https://twitter.com/laurenweinstein Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com
