Social Media Surveillance and Repression
Previously undisclosed government documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation through Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) lawsuits give hard evidence to previous reports that various spy agencies including the FBI, CIA, and others under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are using social media sites like facebook, myspace, twitter, youtube, etc. to gather “evidence” of criminality against suspects. One FIOA obtained internal document from the Justice Department trains FBI agents how to snoop for pictures, postings, videos, etc on social media sites. Investigators sometimes create false identity accounts on the social media sites in order to “friend” the suspect, or “friend” any number of individuals who the suspect is “friends” with in order to gain information that can be used for evidence and conviction.

Praxis: Nothing Essential Happens In The Absence of Noise

From Alien Underground 0.0, London 1994
by Praxis

Nothing Essential Happens in the Absence of Noise

Techno is the culture that was born from the sores of an unintelligible urban territory. Cultural production, corporate or independent, only could produce extreme boredom, apathy when the post war years got recycled in ever shorter cycles, art imploded and personal computers got widely available. The industry then got the fear, Horror Vacui, because the principle of its organisation > the top-to-bottom one way transmission > got short circuited, & there was no transmitter or receiver, only a mixer & rooms full of people + noise.
