Excellent summation!

"The laws of Australia prevail in Australia, I can assure you of that," he said on Friday. "The laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia."

Words, I have none...

What's the current status with net neutrality? That would be a good place to start.

The FCC, ignoring public and even some congressional protest, is steam-rolling ahead with their plans to eliminate net neutrality. The fix is well in.

Not concerning at all:

The request from the DOJ demands that DreamHost hand over 1.3 million visitor IP addresses — in addition to contact information, email content, and photos of thousands of people — in an effort to determine who simply visited the website. (Our customer has also been notified of the pending warrant on the account.)

That information could be used to identify any individuals who used this site to exercise and express political speech protected under the Constitution’s First Amendment. That should be enough to set alarm bells off in anyone’s mind.

What a journey.
So, I've been reading/pondering about internet routers who either have/use VPN and/or TOR network "Built-in" or by default.

If you learn anything I'd be interested in hearing. I've finally ponied up for VPN service and would like it to be more seamless. The client for Private Internet Access appears to be a resource hog even when idle.

Oh you want to use a VPN well that will be double the cost.
