Electronic Frontier Foundation2,094,853We're live on Google Hangouts! Watch the digital teach-in here: http://youtu.be/yb1sYK8aGGISubmit questions via Twitter using the hashtag #404Day  On April 4th, EFF is partnering with the Center for Civic Media at MIT and the National Coalition Against Censorship to bring attention to the long-standing problem of Internet censorship in public libraries and schools for 404 Day. Join us on Friday, April 4th from 12pm-1pm PST for a digital teach-in with some of the top researchers and librarians working to analyze and push back against the use of Internet filters on library computers. Mark your calendars, and check back soon for more information about how you can tune-in.Speakers:Deborah Caldwell-Stone, Deputy Director of the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom.Chris Peterson, a research affiliate at the Center for Civic Media at the MIT Media Lab.Sarah Houghton, Director for the San Rafael Public Library in Northern California.Moderator: April Glaser, activist at the Electronic Frontier FoundationWe also invite librarians and concerned bloggers across the country to blog about Internet filtering in libraries on 404 Day to raise awareness and share stories of free speech infringing censorship in schools and libraries. Want to blog about it? Write an email to april@eff.org to let us know.About Children's Internet Protection Act & Censorship in LibrariesOver 10 years ago, Congress passed the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), a bill that brought new levels of Internet censorship to libraries across the country. The law is supposed to encourage public libraries and schools to filter child pornography and obscene or “harmful to minors” images from the library’s Internet connection in exchange for continued federal funding. Unfortunately, aggressive interpretations of this law have resulted in extensive and unnecessary censorship in our cherished public libraries, often because libraries go beyond the legal requirements of CIPA when implementing content filters. As a result, students and library patrons across the country are routinely and unnecessarily blocked from accessing constitutionally protected websites.404 Day: A Day of Action Against Censorship in Libraries2014-04-04 21:00:0067 
Electronic Frontier Foundation2,094,853We invite you to join us for a live Google Hangout on Tuesday October 1st at 2 PM Pacific / 5 PM Eastern to learn more about the TPP's copyright provisions and their impact on users, their effect on U.S. copyright law, and how we can work together to protect our access to knowledge, digital rights, and internet freedom. There will also be time for Q & A.Even though we successfully killed SOPA and ACTA, special interests groups continue to pour millions of lobbying dollars to push policies that would further restrict our rights to knowledge. Unable to pass such measures through our legislative process, they’re using secretive, non-democratic tactics to fold harsher copyright restrictions and enforcement measures into a larger trade agreement. The latest and biggest threat on this front is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a multinational trade agreement being negotiated between the United States and 11 other Asia-Pacific countries.Speakers:* Lori Wallach: Director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch* Krista Cox, Staff attorney at Knowledge Ecology International (KEI)* Maira Sutton, Global Policy Analyst at EFF* Parker Higgins, Activist at EFFTPP, Copyright, and Users' Rights: Google Hangout with EFF, KEI, and Public Citizen2013-10-01 23:00:00105

Electronic Frontier Foundation2,094,853On October 16, join EFF and technology users around the Internet in celebrating women in science, technology, engineering, and math. Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration that gives us an opportunity to publicize the contributions women make to technology and technology policy.Defending rights online means more than just standing up for abstract principles. It means supporting the users and developers who want to make technology better, and women play an essential role.Please join us -- it's easy! Just blog, tweet, post on G+, and tell your friends. You can write about women in technology who have inspired or influenced you, or you can write about technology issues that particularly affect women. If you're on Twitter, use the hashtag #findingada .EFF is proud to participate in Ada Lovelace Day. We'll be blogging, tweeting, and re-posting some of our favorite articles on our blog and social media accounts. We're especially interested in posts that connect civil liberties, technology, and women. If you write something, send a link to kellie@eff.orgLearn more:http://findingada.com/https://twitter.com/findingadahttps://twitter.com/effAda Lovelace Day2012-10-16 19:00:00143 
Electronic Frontier Foundation2,094,853Happening now! Watch/participate via https://twitter.com/efflive. You can see the tweets even if you don't have a Twitter account. And if you are on Twitter, join the conversation with hashtag #Dodd.MPAA Chairman Chris Dodd's is giving a talk about "Creative Content and the Cloud" at the San Francisco Commonwealth Club -- and EFF's activism team will be on hand to cover the event through our live Twitter account,@EFFLive. We're going to provide a steady stream of humorous and thoughtful commentary throughout Dodd's speech, so please join us online or in San Francisco.Chris Dodd pushed hard to pass the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), a bill that would given content holders new tools to censor the Internet in the name of stopping "piracy."  Dodd has also said that he is "confident" negotiations for a SOPA revival are taking place. While it's tempting to write off that confidence as the result of watching one too many zombie movies, it should be no surprise that the MPAA is pushing for a new backroom deal. That's why EFF and other Internet freedom advocates are committed to fighting for an uncensored web.Follow our live coverage on Twitter @EFFLive or buy tickets to attend in person: https://doddandnewsom.eventbrite.com/ EFF Livetweets Chris Dodd's Speech in San Francisco2012-10-03 03:00:0059

Rusty Ferguson54,564♥★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★Ripples of Love -- * Rebuild the Philippines *, V2 from +Rusty FergusonNew Version Updated: May 27, 2014★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★♥This is a circle that supports +Habitat for Humanity’s program to Rebuild the Philippines. To support this circle, you can share it or donate or both.Today was the first day of school in Tacloban. I learned that someone I’m very fond of that is in the second grade needs to bring a portable light to school!  They have no electricity so there are no fans either. Hard to ignore that and I don’t understand it but that tells us the need in the Philippines is still great. We can wait for the government to do it so we need to help as much as possible. These funds will not go to the government but to Habitat for Humanity who is building homes themselves.For some this will be a reminder. Please understand that A lot of people doing a little will have a huge impact. We are making ripples when we post on Google Plus, FaceBook, Twitter and other social media. Why not make those ripples mean something positive?When you make or share a post, those post spreads out across the Internet like tossing a rock into a pond. The Internet is an infinite pond, so our impact can also be as infinite as our zeal to support something worthwhile. What is a little? If only I could get more people to understand that $2.00 is enough if everyone participates we could easily build an entire home for a Filipino family as the cost is under $4500 to build an earthquake and super typhoon resistant home in the Philippines. A home much nicer than most Filipinos live in.If two dollars is all you can give than please give that. It’s enough! Some donated less than a dollar and that too is enough! Every drop expands the ripple.http://www.give2habitat.org/member/rustyf/haiyanHowever, I realize times can be hard. You may not have a dime tospare but you can still help. When you reshare this circle, others will see it.  Though you may not be able to contribute they may be able too. Or they may share it too. The ripple will grow.A week or so ago, I got an email from Habit for Humanity (HFH) requesting additional help for the victims of Typhoon Hiayan.Here is a portion of their email:♥★★★★★★★★★★★★Your commitment to help rebuild the lives of the families who were displaced by Super Typhoon Yolanda inspires me and my coworkers.  Because of you, Habitat has been able so far to repair 22,000 damaged homes and to start constructing the first 1,000 of the 30,000 houses it aims to construct for the Yolanda survivors.I'm writing to you right now -- exactly six months after the tragedy -- in behalf of the Yolanda survivors.  Most of the displaced families are still living in makeshift houses, tents, and evacuation centers.They are currently enduring a hot summer but soon it will be replaced by the country's often very wet season.  I urge you, therefore, to help us remind others about them.♥★★★★★★★★★★★★There was a PDF included that revealed this:♥★★★★★★★★★★★★It’s been six months since Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), made its tragic landfall in the Philippines on November 8, 2014. Aside from the more than 8,000 Filipinos who died and are still missing, the typhoon affected…14 million FilipinosDestroyed or severely damaged more than a million homesWiped out or impaired millions of people’s livelihoods…And dreams.But there’s hope. You can support them by donating through >>>>> http://www.give2habitat.org/member/rustyf/haiyan(Additional options for donations b2014-06-02 12:07:07457161182152

For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people. It is constantly updated.  Send people in my circles or communities invites and other spam and you’ll soon find yourself blocked. If they are not following you, I really dislike that.  If you’re doing it, I will know and you will soon be gone.I don’t need to be the number one most shared circle to the point that it means loading you up with a ton of people I wouldn’t follow. I won’t do it.This is a circle made up of mostly of those that are known to share circles. However there are also over 100 profiles with incredible content or promote worthy causes. Most profiles are from those that have shared my circles in the past.To remain in this Circle do this:Plus this post.   Comment on this postShare this CircleAdd this Circle to your circles When you get re-shares of circles that you share, you’ll find that you are in more circles.  It is in your best interest to share it to your stream and tell others about the benefits of shared circles. Are You New to Circle Sharing?Here are some quick tips for you. When you add a circle, many of the people in it will add you back.  Many more will if you have a profile picture of your face. To further improve on that complete your tagline and employment fields found in your profile. Instead of saying you work for IBM or Walgreen’s tell us something about you in that field. What you do at your job or what you’d like to do. It doesn’t matter. What I want to know is what you are interested in on Google Plus.  You’re profile should tell us about what kinds of post you make.The other day, someone told me some of the people that add the circle will delete it. She’s right, they will. So what you need to do is engage with the people you add. Leave comments on their post. When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important. Google is trying to get us to improve our postings. I believe that’s the main reason they recently added it to our profile.  It’s a caret. Read between the lin2014-05-02 08:55:50452101017

Bobo Fett4Those of you flocking here from the horror that is Facebook, or any that have been here for a while, or maybe even never a part of FB, some pointers to get you started.First thing to know if you type a question mark pretty much anywhere (as long as you don't have a text field in focus, in other words a blinking cursor where you would type text) in G+ you get a little pop up that gives you some handy basic keyboard shortcuts.If you are new here and and you are looking to make your feed more active, click the two little circles labeled Find people in the icons down the left side of the G+ page.  There you can search for people you know and add them to your circles.  Circles are what G+ uses to allow you to organize your friends list.  G+ starts you off with a few default Circles to use, you just need to add people and/or pages to things you enjoy to one of those circles.  Once you have you will see grey buttons at the top of your main feed (The page you get to if you click the big Google+ icon in the top left hand corner).  The first button is the default All circles button, here you will see all of the posts of every person/page you have added to any of your circles.  Next to the All button you will see buttons with the names of your circles.  If you click one of them you will of course see just posts from people/pages in that circle, but also on the rightish side, not quite at the top of the page, you will find a button that says Settings.  That is a drop down that gives you two check boxes.  One is "Show posts in home stream" the other is "Get Notified of new posts".  They pretty much do what they say, and "get notified" means any posts from this circle will make the number between your name and the + Share button in the top right hand corner increment and go red.  You can click that number at any time (even if it's red and 0) to get a drop down window which will show a condensed version of all posts from circles you get notified about. It will also notify you any time someone circles you back, and any +1s you have received in posts or comments you have made. As well as, comments in posts you have also commented on. On this Settings button you will also see a grey area that says Amount.  If you hover over that you get to choose More, Standard, or Fewer.  Which controls how frequently the posts from that circle appear in your feed.If you combine the above tools with the fact that you can change the name of any circle, add as many as you like, and also have people in more than one circle, you have very granular control over what posts you see and when, and exactly who can see your posts.  You can also share your circles with other people, as I have done below.  If you click the View shared circle button below, you will be able to see all the pages in a circle I call, go figure, Pages.  You can look through it and if you like everything you can just add the whole circle as a new circle.  Or, you can pick and choose which things you find interesting and add just them to your own circle that you already have or create a new circle.  Moving stuff from circle to circle is as easy and dragging the rectangle for that particular page/person and dropping onto the circle you want it to be in.  You could also just add this circle in full and then just delete the stuff you don't want (little x in top right hand corner of each rectangle when you hover over it).  Or just view this circle to get ideas for what sort of stuff can be searched for, and use the search box at the top of the Find people/Circle page to find stuff you like.Now once you have some friends added to circles, and pages/people you would like to follow added as well, your feed will get much more interesting. Now on to posting your own stuff.  In the Share what's new... field at the top of pages, you can of course type anything you like2013-05-03 19:55:12143001

Hugo van der Merwe450My Pages circleMy G+ Home stream is pretty overwhelming, it would not be possible to read everything if I hadn't significantly dialled down some circles. I can and do read everything in my "Friends" circle, not too hard as many people aren't very active. ;) (I also limit my "Friends" circle to fewer than 100 people: I have an Acquaintances circle dialled down to the recommended "most posts", rather than "every post").A large portion of my Home stream consists of news-related posts from pages, with a good dose of geek and personal interests mixed in. I have a couple of non-overlapping circles that I use specifically for pages. A "Google Pages" circle contains, you guessed it, a whole bunch of Google pages. I also have a plain "Pages" circle which doesn't contain Google pages. In fact, here I'm sharing my "Pages" circle, for what it's worth. It is not particularly well curated, it's a mixed-value bag, but some of the pages in this circle are highly recommended! ;) What are your favourite pages?(BTW my pages circles are dialled down to one notch above zero, i.e.: "Show some posts from Pages in your Home stream".)2012-11-08 21:45:1932300

This week EFF heard from the world's largest ICT companies about how they plan to address a string of unforeseen human-rights impacts across the ICT value chain. It's a worthy sentiment—but is it enough to protect users?

We held a global teach-in on the secret Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement because things are moving fast now. TPP delegates are determined to conclude this agreement by next year, and on the US front, Congress is likely to introduce another Fast Track bill in January that would tie these representatives' own hands from debating or modifying the terms of this agreement after the White House has secretively negotiated it for years.

We're starting our live streamed TPP discussion in about 30 minutes. It will feature experts from digital rights organizations from around the world, sharing their analysis of how this secret trade agreement poses a threat to users' rights.

A lot has happened on the Trans-Pacific Partnership front these past couple months. There was another major leak of a recent draft of the TPP’s Intellectual Property chapter that confirmed that many of the most extreme copyright provisions are still there, and in some cases, have even gotten worse. It also showed that it included some new harmful language on “trade secrets” that could be used to crack down on journalists.

The TPP could be finalized in the coming months, and things are moving fast. That’s why we’d like to invite you to a public, online teach-in to hear representatives from several digital rights groups based in TPP countries share their analysis of the latest leaked text, as well as to lay out the current state of play of the negotiations. We’ll make sure there’s time at the end for users to ask us questions.

When the time comes, we’ll need to be ready to fight this agreement on a global front. So please join us and get informed about the TPP's threats to digital rights.___We're starting our live streamed TPP discussion in about 30 minutes.

When it comes to the Internet, Californians are pioneers. The Bay Area has been very vocal in the national fight for Net Neutrality, and there's a reason: The open Internet is why so many trailblazing new artists, technologies and businesses were born in this state.

The Net Neutrality debate is moving fast on the heels of a record-breaking summer where millions of people spoke out against an FCC proposal that would permit large Internet providers to charge fees for access to parts of the Web. And by early next year, the FCC is slated to make a decision on a highly controversial merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable -- a move that could lead to less consumer choice and less diversity online.

Organizations including ColorOfChange.org, Common Cause, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Free Press, the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net), and the Media Alliance are inviting the diverse communities of the Bay Area to speak out and join local leaders, policy experts, technologists, and elected officials to testify at City Hall about why the future of the Internet matters to us.___

Last week the Spanish senate bowed to content industry lobbyists in approving copyright law amendments that will damage Internet freedoms. These include a new license fee payable by news aggregators that even publishers can't waive, and provisions censoring and criminalizing websites that merely link to infringing content.
