The only questions worth asking today are whether humans are going to have any emotions tomorrow, and what the quality of life will be if the answer is no.

The BBC is running an article today, reminiscent of a Pigdog article posted over the weekend, about the UK cyberstrike against metered local calling, and Bob Glickstein's call for a general strike of computer professionals in the 33 countries that signed the Wassenaar agreement, an international treaty that imposes new restrictions on cryptographic software technology. The article also mentions several other similar online "strikes" throughout Europe, and a protest to free two imprisoned Chinese scientists. The trend is clear: CRAZY ONLINE BOYCOTTS. And once again, Pigdog Journal SCOOPS.
