Jd Geier883My Top 99 CircleThe #top99   #sharedcircles  are going around... I figure I don't share circles that often, so here's mine.  I tried to filter out family, businesses, non-users (deleted?)... but I may have missed one or two.If you're notified of this post, you're in it. :)Want to make your own?Go to circles. Make sure 'sort by relevance' is selected at the top. Drag and drop to select roughly 100 people. Make a new circle. Maybe edit out a few personal people etc.. but thats it.. pretty simple.. Share the circle with the little share button in the middle of the new circle and tag it with #top99. Done :)2012-07-25 02:14:3499102
Sophie Wrobel9,700Where Google+ fails: My shrinking geek circleWhere did all the real geeks go?This is my second circle share, and (like the first one) a very small circle. It is also one with many lesser-known faces. These are people who are not necessarily hackers, but they all have one thing in common, something that annoys everyone who doesn't understand geek culture, and that turns other geeks on - they will ruthlessly and methodolically take apart the semantics of anything you say, and go to utmost lengths to defend their reasoning. They will keep you sharp.I'm also sharing this circle as a call for help. This circle is the one circle that I curate that has shrunk considerably in the past few months. I figure it is high time to share it before it reduces itself to zero. Some of its ex-members are now homelessly wandering without a new platform to gather on. But where have the rest of this geek exodus gone off to?And, oh yes, the question which we all suspect an unspoken answer to but don't want to acknowledge it: why is Google so seemingly desperate to drive the geeks out?2012-06-28 06:11:2192115

Sophie Wrobel6,893Cream of the cream: My mentor circleThis is my first circle share. I've been rather hesitant to share circles as I feel that circle shares are incredibly impersonal: you get a pile of suggestions without any real idea why, or where they fit in your world. Then +Gideon Rosenblatt proposed a wonderful idea: a Google+ Mentors Circle. The idea being, you add people to this circle who you want to be your mentor, target them by following their posts and building a relationship with them so that you can win them as your mentor. And: what a circle to share! That is the 'cream of the cream' circle.While I don't follow that definition so strictly - I've always been one to silently observe and pick and choose qualities that I'd like to attain, and then copy particular 'role models' without necessarily asking for a more formal relationship - I did start collecting people whom I want to learn some particular quality from into a circle. Potential mentors, you could say. And then I realized: This wasn't a circle I could share. Some of those people were G+ lurkers. Others were using G+ as a Twitter-crosspost-outlet or Reader-sharing-outlet without actually engaging in conversation. So I removed them and was left with a circle of people whom I want to learn something from, who post insightful content and who respond to conversations actively. And that, fellow readers, is this circle. Since these people happen to also be 'big noisy people' on the most part, I expect you are already following some of them. If not, feel free to meet and greet, and/or guess what I'm trying to learn these days. :)I'll share a second circle, one with my favorite 'not-so-noisy' people to read based on content quality, later - again, as an attempt to counter the trend of sharing circles with too much noise.2012-04-01 22:44:0518303

John Kellden4,179The Moneyball TeamGoogle+ Visionaries, take 2An update of the circle I previously shared. I've removed most of the big hitters.I figured they're in the ten thousand range or more and will survive being cut. Will share them in a new circle in the not too distant future. I also removed some Google Pages. This is the Moneyball Team of Google+. And I mean that as the highest possible praise.#sharedcircles #sharedcircle #circleshare2012-03-19 13:04:39500648
John Kellden4,179Google+ VisionariesThese 365 people are mandatory to interact with. I suggest you set aside a moment each day for each one in this circle. Which is why I've added 365 people. Seriously, do.Ok, so it's not humanly possible to do that. Think of it as a Google+ smorgasbord of awesome people then.As with my previously shared link of 500 Great Google Plus People, I've looked at these people from a number of different angles. They passed with flying colours. :)#sharedcircles #sharedcircle #circleshare2012-03-19 11:09:54365231829
John Kellden4,057Great Google Plus PeopleWorth Waiting For. I've thrown every heuristic and the kitchen sink into this, pondering from a great many angles, with the intention of creating a shared circle that is nothing other than mindblowing. You won't get instant fame, fortune and world peace by interacting with this bunch of people, but pretty damn close. This is like an online portable, accessible, interactive Chautauqua. And then some. Enjoy!2012-03-17 15:45:4949913914
Todd Vierling1,010The Lesser Celebrities of Google+My first broad-based shared circle. These people aren't super-prolific posters with thousands of commenters like Scoble or +Mike Elgan (there's nothing wrong with that; his content is nifty, but I simply can't keep up).These folks may not have follower counts in the hundreds of thousands, but they regularly post things that are interesting, geeky, funny, thought-provoking, and generally worth the read. A good addition to anybody's stream.First point, this circle seriously needs more women, and I plan to reduce the gender divide (and increase the diversity in general) before re-sharing this circle. And secondly, after cobbling this list, I'm sure that I left out a dozen or more folks whom I intended to add here. So this circle will probably be a tad bit larger the next time I share it.2012-03-02 19:19:1026102

Forrest Thiessen382Cure for Slim Stream Syndrome (SSS)I was discussing with +Phil Tubb the other day that--in my experience--the way people use Facebook and Google+ are quite different. I've seen people follow family members and old friends and classmates on Facebook to learn about how friends are getting along, who's dating whom, what people had for dinner, etc... and when they come to G+ many of those people they follow on Facebook aren't here yet, so their stream is still and quiet ("just the sound of crickets", as +Aisha Thiessen told me). Unlike Facebook, though, G+ is much more about finding new friends and people whose interests you share, though--with a little poking around and a little "gardening" of your circles, you can find all kinds of interesting people... but how to get started finding those folks, and curing "Slim Stream Syndrome" ("SSS")?There are a growing number of ways to do this (searching G+ for a topic that interest you, for example), but one is to load yourself up with a "starter set" of G+ people that someone recommends to you as having interesting things to say (or at least that share funny cat photos...). I just spent half an hour quickly going through my circles and pulled together this "shared circle" of people who (a) post regularly on G+; (b) say interesting (or entertaining) things, and do it well (whether I always agree with them or not); and (c) encourage discussion. (It's not an all-inclusive list by any means--please don't be offended if I didn't include you!).If you're suffering from SSS, consider clicking on the "Add circle" link below--that will copy all these folks into a new circle in your G+ account, and away you go. If you don't like or enjoy what you're seeing from them, take them out of your circle, and they're gone; if you do, see who they're sharing things from and discussing things with, and you'll soon find other new people on your own to add to your circles.Have fun with it!2012-01-22 03:06:0739323

Suppose that a friend of yours received a National Security Letter and wanted to talk about it. For them to tell you would break the law, and would also make you required not to tell anyone lest you break the law too.

Telling you would impose a burden on you (if you tell anyone, both of you go to prison) and relieve burden on them (by having someone to talk to).

Not telling you would impose a greater burden on them (by having nobody to talk to) and some strain on your relationship (by having a thing that can't be talked about) but no burden on you personally.

Would you want them to tell you or not?

(Assume that you aren't exempt by being their lawyer or the like.)

Dear lazyweb: I'm having difficulty transcoding the TSA video to something that Final Cut Pro & YouTube will accept (e.g. to parse, not have the frames all stuttery, etc). VLC plays it fine, QuickTime doesn't. How can I transcode it into something standard (e.g. 1280x1080, 29.97p h264 mp4) and both FCP&YT-friendly?

ffmpeg -i says I have an avi with these properties (no audio):
  Duration: 00:48:48.73, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 2497 kb/s
    Stream #0:0: Video: h264 (Main) (V264 / 0x34363256), yuv420p, 1280x960, 2495 kb/s, 9.99 fps, 9.99 tbr, 9.99 tbn, 19.98 tbc

Just got a care package from TSA: two DVDs of video. One of them (SFO, I think) was too badly damaged to recover. The other, however, is a 49 minute 1280x960 video of the secondary screening I was subjected to at BOS. (From only one camera angle, and missing all of the events leading up to that screening.)

That's the video whose very existence BOS airport claimed was SSI and refused to confirm or deny, where it shows TSA supervisors  _reading_ confidential papers, preventing me from writing while mute, and confiscating my pen & paper after I wrote a protest of their illegal search.

Will upload to YouTube once I can annotate it adequately.

Google just launched FIDO U2F based hardware 2FA. And there's at least one (brand new?) manufacturer selling 'em for $8 w/ shipping.

U2F specs: https://fidoalliance.org/specifications/download
Security reference: https://fidoalliance.org/specs/fido-security-ref-v1.0-rd-20141008.pdf

Should be interesting to see this get more thoroughly vetted… say, at the next BlackHat. ;-)

Several intersecting Circles here in this "new" essay from Isaac Asimov published at +MIT Technology Review. The following pullquote may become my new e-mail sig line:

It is only afterward that a new idea seems reasonable.

But this one is all right too:

Obviously, then, what is needed is not only people with a good background in a particular field, but also people capable of making a connection between item 1 and item 2 which might not ordinarily seem connected.

Original article: http://philpapers.org/archive/VANRCI.pdf

This is a thought-provoking article on the nature of factual belief and of religious belief, and how a single person can often seem to hold two contradictory beliefs. The idea (as proposed by Neil van Leeuwen) is that there is a flaw in English: we use the word "belief" for both of these, but these actually represent two quite distinct psychological processes.

Essentially, the idea is that religious belief -- at least for most people -- is what you might call a type of narrative belief, where you hold the story in your head, reason about it from within its hypotheses, and derive meaning from it. This type of belief is only held within its context, and "factual" belief -- information we have about the outside world -- can intrude upon it, but not the other way round. (Lombrozo gives a related example for comparison: "Even when engaged in pretend play, for example, children know that they shouldn't really bite the Play-Doh "cookie"; the factual belief that Play-Doh isn't food infiltrates imaginative play.")

The proposition that religious belief works through the mechanism of narrative and story isn't (by any means) to say that it is either unimportant or untrue: narrative is our most profound means of experiencing situations other than our own and of reasoning about ourselves in those situations, and is key to the way in which we develop core faculties such as empathy and ethics. (Pinker gave a fairly extensive, data-based argument for this in The Better Angels of our Nature, pointing out the emergence of widely available written fiction as a potential causal agent in a sharp decline in interpersonal violence at the same time.) The stories which I re-read, time and time again, I re-read because they are in a profound sense "true," even if I do not believe (in the factual sense) that Darwi Odrade read Leto II's message in a cave on Arrakis, or that Fermina Daza ever fell back in love with Florentino Ariza in her old age. 

I'm not yet certain where I sit on this hypothesis of van Leeuwen's. There are some aspects of it which ring true to me -- I recognize the mechanism by which I suspend disbelief and accept a narrative as real, not simply when I am reading a book but much later, when I think about it and the characters and the story, and I recognize a similar method when thinking about religious stories, both in myself and in others. On the other hand, I see behavior in other people which doesn't seem to match the hypothesis as cleanly: where the rule that "factual beliefs can intrude upon narrative beliefs, but not vice-versa" seems to fail, and in particular narrative beliefs are indeed held as factual beliefs.

So I suspect that what van Leeuwen has captured is one aspect of the question, but far from a complete summary of it. Nonetheless, I think that this is a fruitful idea, and may help me understand many things about people's thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors -- including my own -- in the future. So it's food for thought.

Researchers Untangle the Biological Effects of Blue Light

Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/neuroscience-melanopsin-blue-light-1461.

A tug-of-war is revealed in the response of the eye to blue light, with implications for the study of light sensitivity and seasonal depression.

The research is in PNAS. (full open access)

Research: “Opponent melanopsin and S-cone signals in the human pupillary light response” by Manuel Spitschan, Sandeep Jain, David H. Brainard, and Geoffrey K. Aguirre in PNAS. doi:10.1073/pnas.1400942111

Image: Drs. Aguirre and Brainard and graduate student Spitschan found that melanopsin, a protein and short wave-sensitive S-cones, both in the retina have opposite effects and compete for control of the pupil in response to blue light. Credit University of Pennsylvania.

An interesting piece about how the English civil wars may be reflected, by heterogenous immigration, in US culture wars of today. It would be interesting to verify this experimentally — e.g. by seeing if the DNA of people voting in various blocks (who are of English descent) tracks as pictured to the various parts of England at the time.

TIL: The American Council for the Blind successfully sued the US Treasury (under the Rehabilitation Act) to force them to redesign US bank notes to be blind-accessible.  Despite the enormous cost of doing so, and some arguments about whether they'd adequately gone through administrative processes before filing suit.

The Gods of the World: A group called "The 40 Foundation" put together this rather extraordinary infographic of the world's religions and how they're (historically) related to one another. It's a phylogenetic tree of the gods.

I can't say that this diagram is complete, nor that it shows every possible cross-pollination; it would be very hard to do so, given just how intricate this aspect of history is. Likewise, it's hard to define the boundaries between various sects, at times; while the Protestants are very famous for each sect having its own name and being firmly opposed to those schismatics from the Popular Front of Judea, many other religious divisions have been more subtle, two groups simply moving away from each other over time, or one group simply adopting a radically different theology without telling anyone.

"It was a scene right out of a Hollywood movie. On August 21, 2010, after more than a month of planning, teams from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office descended on multiple target locations.

We first held nineteen years ago that conducting a run-of-the-mill administrative inspection as though it is a criminal raid, when no indication exists that safety will be threatened by the inspection, violates clearly established Fourth Amendment rights. We reaffirmed that principle in 2007 when we held that other deputies of the very same Orange County Sheriff’s Office who participated in a similar warrantless criminal raid under the guise of executing an administrative inspection were not entitled to qualified immunity. Today, we repeat that same message once again. We hope that the third time will be the charm."

TSA updates:

1. I emailed the TSA a negotiated-settlement offer with two simple preconditions:
a) they send me the Rehab Act responses they were mandated by law to send me over a year ago, by 11pm on 16th, and
b) they send me an initial settlement offer, by 11pm on 30th.

TSA did respond yesterday… saying this:

"TSA is not in a position to provide a formal response or engage in settlement discussions at this time. We will provide you with a response to your two complaints when final review is complete. Thank you."

… so they're deliberately violating the Rehabilitation Act mandatory 180-day deadline (which expired over a year ago). Presumably for political reasons.

It's a pity, really; they could've gotten a negotiated settlement more favorable and less costly. Their choice not to. Next stop, full scale litigation…

b) I just filed my response/reply to TSA's strike/dismiss, bringing up the fact that BDO/SPOT (aka "TSA's try to tell if you're lying by your facial expressions program" is totally ineffective, as a basis for striking 49 USC 114(r) ("sensitive security information") redaction: http://s.ai/tsa/legal/#66

The attack is called POODLE, and it was developed by Bodo Möller, Thai Duong and Krzysztof Kotowicz of Google. To paraphrase Bruce Schneier, attacks only get better -- they never get worse. The fact that this attack is called POODLE also tells us that attack names do get worse. But I digress.

The rough summary of POODLE is this: it allows a clever attacker who can (a) control the Internet connection between your browser and the server, and (b) run some code (e.g., script) in your browser to potentially decrypt authentication cookies for sites such as Google, Yahoo and your bank. This is obviously not a good thing, and unfortunately the attack is more practical than you might think. You should probably disable SSLv3 everywhere you can. Sadly, that's not so easy for the average end user.
[...]
Hopefully this will be the straw that breaks the camel's back and gets us to abandon obsolete protocols like SSLv3. But nobody every went bankrupt betting on insecurity. It's possible that ten years from now we'll still be talking about ways to work around POODLE and its virulent flesh-eating offspring. All we can do is hope that reason will prevail."___Test your browser:

I'd like to make a section of my room (about 52" wide x 111" long x 91" high) a total-blackout enclosure. I've figured out how I could do this using one 25 yard roll of 54" Roc-Lon Budget Blackout drapery lining, about 14 yards of velcro, and some velcro cable ties repurposed for pole straps and flap rollup straps*… but I'm having some trouble with what to do for the poles.

Basically, I want eight friction-fit roughly-8' poles (at each wall plus on both sides of the 52" center "door", x 2 sides)… in some sort of reasonably cheap, sturdy way. Possibly functioning much like a friction-fit shower curtain rod.

Any suggestions?

(Things I've considered:
* actual tent poles: too expensive, usually not meant for verticals w/ potentially catastrophic shear force, and don't have ends that would fit wide grippy endcaps
* two pieces of 4' pipe with a compression fitting joint: the joint probably would not be structurally sound against shear force, hard to adjust
* curtain rods: way too expensive, also have problems w/ ends)

One thing that it seems I wasn't clear about there: the number of police involved was on the order of a dozen … while I was sitting in a chair because I was too weak to stand even with the assistance of two walking sticks. EU's law about police actions having to be "proportionate" comes to mind.___

Just got ~500 pages of documents (mostly emails, but also complaint logs) released to me by TSA regarding the SFO and BOS incidents. (See s.ai/tsa.) There's a huge amount of redaction by (b)(5) (inter/intra agency decisionmaking process privilege), but I'd bet that a significant portion of that is talking shit about me. (That was true of documents similarly redacted in other cases where the redaction was ultimately overruled in court.)

And of course none of it was provided in the form I asked; it's all images. So it'll take a while for me to go through the whole thing and reconstruct what the original was.

There's also a whole chain of high-up HQ types who are evidently very familiar with this… and with the fact that it's been delayed for months (> a year) now. And some straight up incriminating bits. It'll be very interesting fodder for subpoenas and depositions in a civil suit later (assuming they refuse to settle before I sue, which seems unfortunately likely) — as well as for challenging the FOIA/PA redactions now.

Oh, and they're evidently mailing me the BOS surveillance video whose very existence they initially refused to confirm or deny.

Will put it all up as soon as I'm able to process it. May take a while.___

I recently learned about the attached posts by +may may, telling people to kill themselves. I knew maymay a few years ago; we collaborated briefly. In all my interactions with them, they were a very kind and gentle person, genuinely concerned with making kink less taboo and calling out abusive people to protect their victims.

I hope that they may change, and I don't know why their behavior has changed so dramatically… but their behavior now is objectively abusive. So in honor of the maymay I once (thought I) knew, I'm going to do what they would have recommended in this situation: post our interaction as a warning to others.

I'd normally expect that you would be one of the first people to speak out against this kind of abuse. Honestly, I was fairly shocked to learn of this, as it's totally against what you at least used to stand for.

I hope you know that it's really not okay to talk to anyone like that.

If you're getting that infuriated, may I suggest you got take a break or something?

IOW, fuck you and be gone, out of my life, I want nothing to do with you anymore.

FACEBOOK HAS STARTED ENFORCING ITS NAMES POLICY

Just days after Google announced it would no longer police the names chosen by users on its social network, Facebook decided to take up the battle cry, stressing a name policy it’s had on the books but rarely enforced until now.

"Facebook is a community where people use their real identities. We require everyone to provide their real names, so you always know who you're connecting with. This helps keep our community safe," says the popular social network on their recently-edited name policy page, which tells users to list "your real name as it would be listed on your credit card, driver's license or student ID."

FACEBOOK HAS STARTED ENFORCING ITS NAMES POLICY

Just days after Google announced it would no longer police the names chosen by users on its social network, Facebook decided to take up the battle cry, stressing a name policy it’s had on the books but rarely enforced until now.

"Facebook is a community where people use their real identities. We require everyone to provide their real names, so you always know who you're connecting with. This helps keep our community safe," says the popular social network on their recently-edited name policy page, which tells users to list "your real name as it would be listed on your credit card, driver's license or student ID."

The Facebook policy is meant to cover all users, but -- much like it happened with Google's "real names" policy on Plus -- it's overwhelmingly impacting people whose names don't look sufficiently "real." A person going by John Smith is unlikely to trigger review, whereas someone named +Violet Blue (which is, by the way, her legal name), is much more likely to do so. Partly because of this, drag performers whose names tend to fall short of the "real"-looking name criteria currently appear to have been singled out by Facebook's name policy-enforcement squad.

Miz Cracker, a performer and contributor to Slate, told Slate’s J. Bryan Lowder that at least 20 performers in her network have had their profiles suspended. TechCrunch has the number in the hundreds, though no single definitive list exists.

"I've been Sister Roma for 27 years," said Sister Roma, performer and member of the well-known LGBT-rights advocacy group Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, in an interview with Ars Technica. "If you ask anyone my name, in or out of drag, they will tell you it's Roma. Is it the name on my driver's license? No. But it is my name."

A far more worrisome mechanism within what's being called a "drag queen dragnet," is Facebook’s insistence that users tell on those they believe aren't using their real names. It's very easy to see how such a reporting mechanism may be abused in order to remove individuals whose identity doesn't match what someone might consider "appropriate."

"Given the high number of queens being 'hit hard,' as Miz Cracker put it, someone has clearly made a serious project of reporting drag profiles to (or perhaps from within) the company," Lowder writes.

Robyn Pennacchia at Death and Taxes agrees, "Given the proliferation of non-legal names used on Facebook by non-drag queens and cisgendered people just trying to be whimsical, it seems as though these communities have been specifically and unfairly targeted."

Lending credence to these allegations, last week TechCrunch posted a screenshot of a post on the anonymous network Secret from someone claiming to be targeting drag queens for names policy violations on Facebook.

When Slate reached out to the network, Facebook acknowledged that their suspensions were a response to reports of name violations made by other users. However, Facebook soon began to backpedal, telling TechCrunch three days later that suspensions were the result of an algorithm that had "discovered the drag queens."

To date, none of the married couples I know who share a single Facebook profile with a mishmash or portmanteau of their names seem to have been affected, giving weight to the allegation that specific groups are being targeted.

Intent doesn’t matter

This policy stands in direct opposition to Facebook’s February move to include 56 gender options on its profiles. Ones driver's license may not list one's sex as "gender fluid," and that's okay with Facebook. And as Violet Blue points out, Facebook was well represented at San Francisco Pride in June -- so it may not be intentional discrimination so much as its far more insidious twin, clueless privilege.

Ultimately, whether or not Facebook is targeting drag performers doesn't matter. They've erected a mechanism that enables anyone who wishes to target a vulnerable population to do so, and they are enforcing a policy that will cause harm no matter how well-intended it is.

There are a number of excellent reasons a person may choose to use a pseudonym online, the most obvious being ensuring personal safety and control over how much personal information is made publicly available and when. In this age of increasingly targeted online abuse against women, minorities, LGBTQ individuals, and just about anyone who has the audacity to speak out against the status quo, the ability to create a separate identity so people can speak their truth and still sleep at night without fearing for their lives is a nontrivial thing.

The answer is not to force everyone to give their legal names -- especially when the people being forced to go first are overwhelmingly members of a group that faces such an extraordinary amount of violence, discrimination and abuse already.

"Not everyone is safer by giving out their real name," writes social media researcher +danah boyd. “Quite the opposite; many people are far less safe when they are identifiable. And those who are least safe are often those who are most vulnerable.”

As drag performer Jeza Belle put it in a piece at the Huffington Post:

Gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender people -- and drag queens can often belong to more than one of these groups -- know full well the difficulty that comes with coming out to the people with whom they are closest. For that reason many drag queens, while leading fulfilling lives both on- and offstage, have not let family members or employers in on the news of their alternate personae, as it's a deeply personal and hard conversation to have -- sometimes more difficult than coming out the first time.

Coming out as a drag queen has led to more than a few broken families, lost employment, and strained friendships. This is why, while cultivating relationships with individuals online using their stage name, not all queens are fully comfortable with letting certain family and friends into their world of drag. Facebook's policy forces these queens to either choose between maintaining a social-media presence and risking losing their online support system and carefully balanced identities.

David Campos, a San Francisco-based attorney and member of the city’s Board of Supervisors, warned Facebook that its policy was likely to result in the opposite of what they seemed to intend.

"Facebook may not be aware that for many members of the LGBT community the ability to self-identify is a matter of health and safety," Campos said in a statement. "Not allowing drag performers, transgender people and other members of our community to go by their chosen names can result in violence, talking, violations of privacy and repercussions at work."

Scott Wiener, an LGBT advocate and another member of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors, addressed the issue on his Facebook page last week: "While many drag queens are 'out' about who they are, not all drag queens have that luxury. Plenty of discrimination, hate, and violence toward the LGBT community still exists in many parts of the world, and various people have drag personas that they feel the need to keep separate from the rest of their lives. People who disclose their non-drag identity -- and who, conversely, announce to the world that they are drag queens -- should do so because they want to, not because Facebook is forcing them to do so in order to continue using their profiles."

Facebook told the BBC that its name policy was designed "to protect the community and increase accountability," but who’ll be held accountable when drag performers, trans individuals, sex workers, activists and others suffer the social, emotional, psychological, economic, physical repercussions of being out on Facebook?

Cancer spreads. That's just what it does

"This is really about a lot more than just a bunch of drag queens bitching because we can't use our stage names," Sister Roma said to Ars Technica. "I've heard from women who are trying to escape an abusive relationship, sex workers, burlesque performers, and activists who don't want their real names exposed for fear of discrimination in the workplace and trans people who have finally found peace with themselves and their sexual identity who are being forced to revert to names that they associate with a dark and dismal past. These are the messages that affect me the most."

Indeed, the policy is beginning to ripple beyond the epicenter. The independent adult director and performer Julie Simone had her Facebook profile suspended for a names violation just days after Google Plus announced the end of their names policy. According to Simone, Facebook changed her account name to her legal name without her consent before locking her out of it for 30 days. This move effectively handed her legal identity to fans and stalkers alike, and outed her to any friend or family member who didn't already know about her involvement in sex work. 

Enforcement of the policy escalated mid-September, and it's only increasing. A week and a half ago, a Hawaiian user was locked out of his account because his middle name, Nahooikaikakeolamauloaokalani, didn't appear sufficiently "real." For him, it was a matter of posting his birth certificate. But should Facebook be able to demand this type of information? What do they do with it?

Over the weekend, the photographer +merkley merkley was shut out of his Facebook account for a name violation as well. Unlike many who face stigma or don't have the means to do so, Merkley decided to make his name change legal to get the social network off his back.

"I filled out forms and paid 500 bucks and now I have to wait about eight weeks for a judge to approve it," he told me over instant message. "I sent Facebook the paperwork as they requested and 24 hours later I got what seemed to be an automated response that didn't even acknowledge the files I'd sent but instead just asked me for my real name again and said they wouldn't unsuspend until I gave it to them."

The e-mail he received from Facebook included the following sentence: "If you ever come across another account with a name that violates our policies, feel free to report it by using the 'Report/block this Person' link located on the account's Timeline."

It's so sinister, it almost feels like we're playing Paranoia. But this is real life, not a game.

Shattering communities

Many people use different identities to safely navigate living in a world where it's not yet safe to be out as trans, gay, lesbian, bisexual, a sex worker, or to have a visible political identity, among many other completely legitimate reasons. Many of these people need the option of another identity not because they wish to harm, but because they want to stay safe. And because these identities are so much a part of a very real aspect of these people's lives, many individuals within such groups don't know one another by their legal names. So what happens when part of a community changes their names and the other gets their profiles deleted?

Trannyshack founder and drag performer Heklina tried to strike a compromise when her account was suspended by leaving her drag name as a first name and adding her legal surname as a last name on the social network, only to have Facebook delete her profile entirely. Because she doesn't know the legal names of people in her community, Heklina now has no way to get in touch with her friends and support system.

This policy isn't simply exposing vulnerable populations to harm -- it's also fracturing communities whose members often already feel alienated and ostracized in our society.

Facebook's response

After a group of drag performers threatened to storm Facebook's Menlo Park campus in protest, the networking giant finally caved to a discussion about its policy. Last Wednesday, San Francisco Board of Supervisors member David Campos and a number of performers met with Facebook representatives, but they were discouraged to find that no one attending on Facebook's behalf had the power to alter the policy.

The only promise that the network's representatives could make was that suspended accounts would receive a two-week grace period so users could take the time to make an informed decision about how to proceed.

"This will give [drag performers and others who have been affected] a chance to decide how they'd like to represent themselves on Facebook," said a statement from Facebook to TechCrunch. "Over the next two weeks, we hope that they will decide to confirm their real name, change their name to their real name, or convert their profile to a Page."

Changing to a legal name, as Sister Roma found out, may not actually require submitting an ID. According to Ars Technica, when Sister Roma input her legal name, her account immediately returned to a functional state without requiring further documentation.

"They seem to know my real name already," she told Ars.

It's not impossible that Facebook is using billing records for electronic birthday gifts, game credits and other purchases made through the social network to sniff out people who are using alternate identities, and to verify their real identities once these are put in.

That means that if you use a pseudonym on Facebook and you've purchased something through the social network, you might have something to worry about, even if your name looks "real."

The only option other than changing one's account to reflect a legal name or confirming one's name is to change a Facebook profile to a page.

Unfortunately, Facebook pages are incredibly limited in terms of features. For instance, a page does not have chat functionality. A page isn't a platform for meaningful interaction so much as it is a broadcasting mechanism -- and one that Facebook increasingly wishes to monetize.

According to the social network, a page only reaches around 16 percent of its audience on average. The network claims that this is similar to the reach profiles have, but while a profile can "highlight" a post to give it more visibility, a page needs to pay money in order to "boost" its content. Additionally, pages can't initiate friend requests, initiate Facebook message threads to profiles or pages, or comment on posts on profiles -- even if that profile belongs to one of that very page's administrators. There is no setting users can modify to allow pages to interact with their profiles normally.

Given the limited functionality of pages, it is unconscionable to request that non-brand entities who are using Facebook for community-building and -strengthening consider switching. Switching is simply not a viable option.

"We are not businesses selling products, we are encouraging our friends to come to our events and performances, promoting charitable causes, and making calls to political action, with occasional mundane daily life updates like every other Facebook user," said the Seattle-based performer Olivia LaGarce in a Change.org petition.

So far, her petition has received over 30,000 signatures.

"Maybe Facebook is not their social network if it doesn't offer the protection that is needed," writes Michelle Quinn at the San Jose Mercury News, who apparently sees no problem with creating a ghetto where all vulnerable populations and people who don’t meet Facebook's standards of "real" can go live.

But even if users considered leaving a reasonable option, the two-week grace period that protesting users recently received isn't a typical part of this process. Before the internet rose against the policy, people were shut out from their accounts without the ability to use Facebook’s data export feature. There is no telling what the process will look like after things go back to "business as usual" at the social network. 

And if they do have a chance to export their content, they still have to find a way to prove to Facebook that they are the owner of the profile being exported. When you select the "download content" option, the following message pops up: “We will then ask you to verify your identity in order to help protect the security of your account.”

If one has a pseudonym, how can they verify their identity?

The issue continues to develop. The hashtag #MyNameIs is being used for what appears to be a second chapter of the ‘Nymwars. Facebook, it seems, is only willing to copy Google Plus when it comes to features -- not policy.

Suppose that a friend of yours received a National Security Letter and wanted to talk about it. For them to tell you would break the law, and would also make you required not to tell anyone lest you break the law too.

Telling you would impose a burden on you (if you tell anyone, both of you go to prison) and relieve burden on them (by having someone to talk to).

Not telling you would impose a greater burden on them (by having nobody to talk to) and some strain on your relationship (by having a thing that can't be talked about) but no burden on you personally.

Would you want them to tell you or not?

(Assume that you aren't exempt by being their lawyer or the like.)

Guitarists: I'm thinking of getting a starter guitar. Criteria: cheap; works with Rocksmith 2014; preferably playable acoustically; and at least reasonably decent sound & playability (w/ small hands).

(I'm willing to do DIY, but have zero experience with guitar maintenance. I previously used my housemates' electric guitars on Rocksmith, which is what caught my interest.)

http://www.amazon.com/Thinline-Acoustic-Electric-Guitar-Picks/dp/B003YVPELM/ is ~$100, and reviews seem good but mention some unclear issues w/ Rocksmith (seemingly from its having a passive pickup, though some have mentioned swapping that out with eg a EQ 505R).

Is this a good candidate for me / is there something better / should I mod it with a different pickup / etc?

Assume I know very little about guitars, but have tried to google this already. ;-)

Looking at an auto insurance quote, I wanted to see the actual policy contract, riders, exclusions, endorsements, etc. Yet +GEICO Insurance said that they wouldn't send me that until after it was signed and paid. Take a look at their website — their actual contract terms aren't there.

This is something I have never encountered before, which seems blatantly illegal and unethical. Even Comcast — hardly a moral exemplar — makes their full contract terms available online. This is especially an issue with insurance, where the exact terms of a policy will be used later to determine whether you get covered or not.

I asked for a supervisor, who said he'd try to maybe get me the documents by email, and I contacted the state department of insurance, which said they don't have it online but might be able to get me a copy if I email them.

But this shouldn't be something one has to ask for. A fundamental principle of contract law is that all parties must know exactly what they're agreeing to before they agree to it. You can't get someone to "agree" to something whose full terms you refuse to show until after it's signed.

Seems like a class action lawsuit to me. >:-(

ETA: Update — email I just got from GEICO saying nope, they will not show me the contract they want signed until after it's signed:

"I reached out to our legal team and unfortunately we are unable to provide a copy of our contract to customers we do not currently have contracts with. If you were to begin a policy with GEICO, we will then mail out a GEICO policy contract.

I do apologize for the inconvenience, if you have any further questions please email me or call me at the below phone number.

Thank you!

Interesting new study linking RNA markers to depression and CBT effectiveness. Small population size, though, and it's a shame they didn't measure serum levels of oxytocin etc while they were at it. Will be very interesting to see if this gets replicated with a larger population.

It's just in time for their hearing "Safeguarding Privacy and Civil Liberties While Keeping our Skies Safe" (2pm Eastern on Thursday 18th, livestreamed @ http://homeland.house.gov/hearing/subcommittee-hearing-safeguarding-privacy-and-civil-liberties-while-keeping-our-skies-safe).


It would help a lot if you contact them as well.

Phone is usually best; email works too. Between 9am and 2pm on Thursday Sept 18 would be even better. ;-)

Just talk about your own experience in your own words and say what you'd like them to do to fix it. Feel free to crib from the executive summary (page 2 & 3) of my letter. (Asking them to please meet with me wouldn't hurt either. :-P)

Rynearson v USA, No. 13-5114 (5th Cir. 2014). Argued a couple weeks ago — challenging the legality of an immigration checkpoint stop that took 34 minutes and spent virtually all of it on stuff unrelated to the citizenship of Rynearson (an Army major). Listen to the court's questioning of the government lawyer (starting around 15m in) — it's extremely critical, and the judge actually watched the video. (Kudos to him for being unflappable under fire, though.)

a) Should be an interesting opinion.
b) Remember to always record police, 'cause video trumps everything. :-)

Another interesting criminal case — basically, the 9th seems skeptical that having child porn on Limewire P2P software can constitute separate counts of possession, distribution, advertising, and transportation, when it's just a single act. And "advertising" is a 15 year mandatory minimum. (Skip to the prosecutor's part, ~15m in. The defender's, first, is some random stuff about conflict of interest and attorney assignment that's not very interesting IMO.)

Personally I find it very difficult to believe that P2P participation really constitutes meaningful "advertising" on par with the normal meaning of the term, especially when "advertising" has a harsher sentence than "transportation" but on the Internet one has to first "advertise" the availability of a file before it is "transported" to the other party.

This is pretty awesome.

Since Orwellianism seems to be the theme of the day, (it's the theme of every day, Citizen!) I present to you this rather disturbing little game, "Nothing to Hide." It's very simple: you have to get from one end of each level to the other, and stay in sight of the cameras at all times. Because the cameras are your friend, and they ensure that you are safe. You want to be safe, don't you, Citizen? 

You can play a demo at http://www.nothingtohide.cc/ -- and it's quite playable. In a disturbing sort of way.

Something between credit and blame to +Peter Norvig for pointing me at this.___This is pretty awesome.

An interesting case argued before 9th recently: a cop stopped someone on a pretext. He told the stopped person that he wouldn't be given a ticket. He claimed on to smell meth, took 19 minutes to run a bunch of background checks and wait for his partner, and then ran his drug dog around it.

There's a lot of argument here where the DA is really struggling to justify prolonging the stop to run the background check at all. The resulting opinion should be fairly interesting, so watch for it.

Hm. TSA, in a sworn statement submitted in my lawsuit on June 25, said that they would finish their review of documents I asked for, and provide them to me, within 45 days. That's August 9 — a month ago.

Given that the documents I got so far have substantially affected my argument, I think I'm going to move for an extension of time for the current issues (reply re reconsideration of amendment of complaint, response to motion to dismiss / strike) until the remaining documents are given to me, and request permission to compel their production.

Time to call their bluff.___Filed. We'll see how it goes…

Three states' anti same-sex marriage laws just got argued back-to-back before the 9th Circuit: Idaho (14-35420 Susan Latta v. C. Otter), Nevada (12-17668 Beverly Sevcik v. Brian Sandoval), and Hawaii (12-16995 12-16998 Natasha Jackson v. Neil Abercrombie).

The Hawaii argument was only about mootness and vacator, and not all that interestingly. So tl;dw, notable (IMO) arguments by the Idaho/Nevada attorney: 

* "genderless marriage" wouldn't send as clear a message to potential parents, especially fathers, that they have to get married before they have kids
* it would undermine "the child's bonding right"

* no-fault divorce has harmed children (by sending a message that parents can walk away from a marriage), to Idaho's "regret", though it hasn't yet reversed that law

Amusing moment at the very end of Latta v Otter (1h1m), where Judge Reinhardt says overtly that the Supreme Court — specifically, Justice Kennedy — is going to ultimately decide this. (Which really makes me want courts to just say "look, there's no way we're going to be the final word on this, so just skip us go ask the next court up".)___

Suppose a state's constitution were amended to say that
a) no law may be defended on any basis not stated explicitly in its legislative history (i.e. even for rational basis review, the basis can't be invented in legislation litigation);
b) for post-amendment laws, the reason must be stated in the law itself (or in a later resolution), e.g. a "whereas / in order to" clause; and
c) legislative fact-finding is given only the status of rebuttable presumption.

What would break?
