Oh good. Strava’s fitness data didn’t just reveal the locations of secret military bases and nuclear facilities; They also reveal the names

wired.co.uk/article/strava-mil

Data sharing is for everyone, ya’ll!

Why did anyone think it’s OK to let a company track you by name even if it’s for convenience? Let alone on a secret base? Get a damn stop watch and learn how to check your pulse

NDA forbids police departments from telling judges, defense lawyers and elected
officials about cell call interception technology.

" If curious lawyers and/or judges started sniffing around, agencies were instructed to let accused criminals roam free rather than expose details about Stingray devices."

BTW, I'll be speaking about the state of federation (obviously there's a lot to say right now) at Libreplanet 2018 this year... as will my spouse, Morgan Lemmer Webber on a panel about academia and free software.

Libreplanet is my favorite conference from a community standpoint (Rebooting Web of Trust is my favorite conference from a tech getting-things-done standpoint; I'm going to that too). Maybe you should come... it's free for FSF associate members and students.
