The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over expecting different results. That's a cliche, but politicians often follow the hoariest routes to power, and attempting to enact change by doing the same thing repeatedly is one of them. When word broke last week that the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and…
In the wake of the Sony hack and yesterday's CENTCOM shitshow, President Obama just announced new cybersecurity legislation and related proposals for "securing cyberspace." This is a good thing, because America's cybersecurity kind of sucks. It's also a worrisome thing, since cybersecurity legislation like this stands…
CISPA is back. You might remember the bill as the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act—or perhaps as "the worst privacy disaster our country has ever faced." Rep.

Remember the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, otherwise known as "the worst privacy disaster our country has ever faced"? Well a senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee is reviving it!
The United States legislative system won't always give you what you want. A lot of times, it'll give you the exact opposite. Like CISPA for instance. But the real beauty of it all is transparency; if you don't feel adequately represented it's a piece of cake to figure out exactly who to yell at.

We thought we killed all those awful, horrible destroy the Internet-type bills in SOPA, PIPA and CISPA. We might've been wrong. Like a zombie looking for human blood or a sore loser demanding a rematch, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger and Rep. Mike Rogers plan to re-introduce CISPA to the House later this year.
President Obama has doubled down on his threat to veto the CISPA bill if it reaches his desk.

Good.
CISPA, a terrible bill that would let websites hand over your personal data to the government with little oversight, just passed the U.S. House of Representatives. That's not good.
Remember SOPA and PIPA, the terrible "anti-piracy" bills the internet raged into nonexistence? There's a new one, and it's maybe worse: the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. CISPA. Here's everything you need to know about the worst privacy disaster our country has ever faced.
