    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Again it's a nice concept justice. But even with the best result. It will not be. Most can't even imagine.

    I'm too old I remember when there was.

    Zuckerberg just doesn't get it. The only thing he's sorry about is that there's these continual outcries against him.

    Hey, he just wants everyone to love each other. Be open and honest. Share deeply.

    And, of course, to make tons of money from all that :D

    Yeah and what's he worth now - is it 40 billion or something? ...and yet it's still the perpetual march to make more and more money. There's gotta come a time when that much money is just obscene.

    Having your own piece of an island in Hawaii is pretty cool, though ;)

    "US judge to Facebook: Nope, facial recognition lawsuit has to go to jury

    Facebook's attempt to push a US court to a quick ruling on a class-action lawsuit over its use of facial recognition technology has been denied.

    In an order issued yesterday (PDF), district judge James Donato said that the case would go to trial, with a date set for 9 July..."

    This is good, we need to also file a class action lawsuit against them and Google for identity theft.
    Who we know, where we go what we say who we say it to who we trust what we like what we dont like is all part of what makes us who we are, our identity. It is not just about privacy they are stealing our identity.
    Lawyers need to start looking at that and find ways to hit them with every lawsuit possible and coordinate with other countries all around the world to hit them over and over again.
    In fact what we really need is just one country to make it a criminal offence for any company's software to upload information to any party without the explicit permission of the user each and every time with a complete description of exactly what information will be uploaded and then extradite the entire board of directors to that country to face imprisonment.

    I'd like to see a couple of things:

    a) a CC licence that specifically excluded AFR and other metadata crawling/processing/republishing
    b) compelling social media sites to respect such copyright declarations
    c) requiring "normal" photography release clauses for subjects where the image is used commercially; the image IS used commercially by the social media sites.

    FB's AFR has made my blood boil from the outset.
