Europe 1984

The European parliament accepted a proposal ‘… on the retention of data processed in connection with the provision of public electronic communication services … ‘. Summarized: any data (internet connections, traffic, email, file sharing, SMS, phone calls) of 450 billion people of Europe has to be collected by telecommunication companies, to be used by governments in their fight against ‘crime and terrorism’ … oh, and child porn, of course. Arse, this doesn’t sound good. Say goodbye to our privacy?
