Random Musings

I'm still confused about the utility of Twitter. At times it seems so useful for real-time information (of course sifting through the detritus is difficult), but for the most part it feels rather frivolous.

I wonder why Twitter agreed to the USG? I think it's a bad precedent.

Even I have no use for twitter, but lots of people seem to like posting random thoughts at odd times :P

Guess you probably missed it but the IT act of India is undergoing revision and it includes clauses for the IT ministry and a few others to not only request for block of any Internet resource but also obtain private data on the users..

I did read about something about this in ToI two weeks ago and the new law sounded terrible. In general I don't think Indian government is efficient enough to use any of these to catch criminals or stop terrorists. But these laws are handy when the government wants to take revenge on some citizen for putting pornography or politically offensive content.
