Friday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Online Privacy: New laws were passed yesterday, aimed at cyber criminals, legislating that telcos now have to retain the browsing history and data of those suspected of being involved in crimes such as fraud or downloading child pornography. A warrant will be required before police can view this data, but I’m thinking that the fact that telcos are retaining data in the first place is pretty telling. More here.
Prime Minister Gillard: Julia Gillard spoke out today against (my favourite Julia phrase ever) ‘misogynists and nutjobs’ who have (falsely) raised allegations about her (alleged) misuse of trade union funds nearly 20 years ago. She says the claims are defamatory and she’s pretty furious that they have resurfaced. Read more and see Julia’s press conference about the nutjobs here.
Digital Photography: Wow. (!) Designers have come up with a new textile printing technique, seeing them convert digital photos into negatives which can be used to print images on to any natural fibre. Wow. Good says ‘ The Lumi Process is the creation of Los Angeles dye manufacturer Lumi. Their chief product is a water-based, environmentally friendly dye called Inkodye, that develops photographic images directly on fabric with sunlight. “We’re working to bring photography out of the dark room and into the sun,” says founder Jesse Genet.’ There’s a Lumi app which will convert your phone photos to negatives and then presto! You can print them! Read the full story here.
