we are working in defining a way to deal with all such requirements from regulator and it is not only for Whatsapp, it is for whatsapp, line, viber, twitter etc..
So, what we need your support in is the following:
- is there any technical way that allow for interception these traffic?
- Is there any company or vendor could help us on this regard?
- is there any telecom company they implement any solution or workaround?
For the vast majority of people, digital changes happen outside of their conscious perception. They are merely confronted with constantly changing demands and requirements for their social life: They need ‘DigiD’s’ for their communication with government institutions; they feel the need to own a smartphone and maintain a Facebook page to keep in touch with their family or they feel the constant pressure to update their computer software and hardware in order to “keep up”.
People increasingly make their sense of self-determination and freedom dependent upon the internet. On the other hand, only a few people are actually able to describe and technically understand this complex network; only a few parties materially own and control the communication that runs on it, and nobody really knows how it can be governed in democratic ways.
The mud puddle test
You don’t have to dig through Apple’s ToS to determine how they store their encryption keys. There’s a much simpler approach that I call the ‘mud puddle test’:
- First, drop your devices in a mud puddle.
- Next, slip in said puddle and crack yourself on the head. When you regain consciousness you’ll be perfectly fine, but won’t for the life of you be able to recall your device passwords or keys.
- Now try to get your cloud data back. Did you succeed? If so, you’re screwed.
Or to be a bit less dramatic, I should say: your cloud provider has access to your ‘encrypted’ data, as does the government if they want it, as does any rogue employee who knows their way around your provider’s internal policy checks.
Bitcoin shackles a government and forces it to subsist only on what it can tax openly and legitimately borrow, but unlike a gold standard, Bitcoin doesn’t require any official status to become a standard. The market can arrive at the standard sans government approval, again because it works elegantly both for storage and transfer and it cannot be stopped because it exists in decentralized form.

Er tuimelt een musje door de Siberische storm in mijn verder stille straat. De lente en de postbode laten zich niet zien. De afgelopen weken hebben zich aaneengeregen zonder bijzonderheid. Binnen op tafel ligt een multomap met enkele beduimelde pagina’s papier. Dit is mijn datadagboek tot nu toe.
Whether a data record refers to me by name, or by email address, or by a strong pseudonym that cryptographically prevents the pseudonym to be linked to me does not really matter. The data refers to me, and the data will be used, within that context, to judge me, make decisions about me, etc.

For the moment, we’ve won the battle against normal workaday life and fixed the final bug preventing us from publishing the latest release of Byzantium Linux, which we codenamed Beach Cat after our time in New York City late last year. v0.3a is now available via BitTorrent and direct download on our distribution page. Please help us distribute this release announcement far and wide.

A lot has changed since the days when the people around Hacktic set up and defined the Dutch hacker scene. The Hang Out made way for a variety of hackerspaces; Hacktic itself is long dead (who needs dead trees to communicate nowadays anyway?) and the crew organizing OHM2013 is a completely different one from the oldies that had set up the Galactic Hacker Party and HIP. In short, we’re looking at a complete new generation of Dutch hackers.
Highlighting the diversity of perception and perspective when it comes to mobile media, Freitas first spoke of the phone as a sword, with users now gaining great potential to change, damage and restrict existing structures every time they take hold of these ostensibly innocuous devices. Then there is the idea of the mobile as something akin to a robot servant, a digital personal assistant so efficacious that we soon develop a dependency. The comforting aspects of the smartphone also lend a sense of companionship to the relationship that exists between user and machine and, as such, its qualities are more readily personified than those associated with static tools. At the same time, many of us feel as though we’re carrying a little enemy around in our pockets, which kills our time and perpetually interrupts our offline activities.
unCloud is an application that enables anyone with a laptop to create an open wireless network and distribute their own information. Once it is launched, a passerby using a mobile internet device can connect to this open wireless network. The person running the application can decide what information is shown in any web address. Users can access information wirelessly while at the same time remain disconnected from the internet. unCloud does not depend on a remote datacenter, instead it can be run from a laptop, making it an ideal application to run in a train or at a café.

So. In case you missed it. Google Reader is Dead.
Time to fullfill an old lived dream: having my self-hosted RSS reader. At first glance there seems to be only one viable option: FeedaFever: it is the only other service that will sync with my beloved Reeder. But it costs $30,-. Looks promising tough.
But on second glance there are more:
- NewsBlur – Way to difficult for me. Requires Django, Celery & RabbitMQ, MongoDB, Pymongo, & Mongoengine, PostgreSQL
- RSSMinder – Also not user friendly enough for me. I don’t do software whos installation instructions starts with: “Install Dependencies leiningen, JDK7(JDK6 works), Redis, MySQL, sass, rake”
- Cartulary – INSTALL: The software will run on any unix-like system with a LAMP stack fairly easily, but it installs and upgrades easiest on Unbuntu 12 LTS. That’s what is assumed in the install documentation. Running on any other system will require installing by hand, which is not hard.
- Selfoss Looks great! Easy installation, polished interface; I am gonna try this one!
- Tiny Tiny RSSWas going to try this but something went *boink* during installation and I got ill tempered (and saw Selfoss then).
- FeedHQ Nah, too difficult.
And then there is the, still in development, promise of a news reader build on top of OwnCloud.
But the most important question will be: will it work with the enormous amount of readers out there? Most importantly for me; Reeder.
There is a great write-up about what is needed in general for Google Reader replacements; SUPPORT THE GOOGLE READER API!.
Any other good ideas for self-hosted replacements? Please let me know in the comments or on twitter!
Today we are deciding how the world will look like in the future. We, the IT community, set the course of the train that is called “open society” now and we can decide into which station the train will roll into in 5-10 years. Is it the one where all the people still control their own data and information and can decide who has access to the personal files, photos, contacts, location data, chat messages and other personal information or will we live in a future where all the personal data of all the people in the world are stored on the servers of just a few big organizations and commercial interests, terms of services and secret services decide who has access to the digital life of everybody?

Verdrietig wellicht, ontgoocheld ook. Maar niet boos. Nooit boos. Je moet overtuigd zijn van kwade bedoelingen voordat je echt boos kan zijn. Zoals een wijs man ooit eens zei: wijt niet aan slechte intenties wat je ook met domheid kan verklaren. Vandaar dat ik probeer XS4ALL, de ANWB en T-Mobile het voordeel van de twijfel te geven.
While Facebook might be more effective than police in predicting crime, it cannot be allowed to take on these policing functions without also adhering to the same rules and regulations that spell out what police can and cannot do in a democracy. We cannot circumvent legal procedures and subvert democratic norms in the name of efficiency alone.
I don’t want to be a designer, a marketer, an illustrator, a brander, a social media consultant, a multi-platform guru, an interface wizard, a writer of copy, a technological assistant, an applicator, an aesthetic king, a notable user, a profit-maximizer, a bottom-line analyzer, a meme generator, a hit tracker, a re-poster, a sponsored blogger, a starred commentator, an online retailer, a viral relayer, a handle, a font or a page. I don’t want to be linked in, tuned in, ‘liked’, incorporated, listed or programmed. I don’t want to be a brand, a representative, an ambassador, a bestseller or a chart-topper. I don’t want to be a human resource or part of your human capital.
I don’t want to be an entrepreneur of myself.
Don’t listen to the founders, the employers, the newspapers, the pundits, the editors, the forecasters, the researchers, the branders, the career counselors, the prime minister, the job market, Michel Foucault or your haughty brother in finance – there’s something else!
I want to be a lover, a teacher, a wanderer, an assembler of words, a sculptor of immaterial, a maker of instruments, a Socratic philosopherπ and an erratic muse. I want to be a community center, a piece of art, a wonky cursive script and an old-growth tree! I want to be a disrupter, a creator, an apocalyptic visionary, a master of reconfiguration, a hypocritical parent, an illegal download and a choose-your-own-adventure! I want to be a renegade agitator! A licker of ice cream! An organizer of mischief! A released charge! A double jump on the trampoline! A wayward youth! A volunteer! A partner.
I want to be a curator of myself, an anti-preneur, a person.

“Als iemand z’n data opvraagt of verwijderd wil hebben, dan doe ik dat gelijk, maar het gebeurt eigenlijk nooit. Jij was de tweede in drie jaar tijd.” Wouter Durville is Dir./Eig. en heeft in z’n eentje OneforOne uit de grond gestampt. Hij loopt zich het vuur uit de sloffen om schoon drinkwater, gezondheidszorg en zonne-energie naar Oost-Afrika te brengen. Databeveiliging en verwerking van persoonsgegevens blijkt een ongemakkelijke kiezel in die sloffen. “Ik had er eerlijk gezegd nog nooit over nagedacht en ik denk dat dat voor 99% van de bedrijfjes zal gelden.”
Gisteren met Valentijnsdag kwam ik slechts met de grootste moeite bij de voordeur vanwege de stapels liefdesverklaringen en huwelijksaanzoeken die in Himalaya-eske bergen mij de toegang naar buiten versperden. De rest van het jaar moet ik het doen met blauwe enveloppen en een verjaardagskaart van m’n oma. Om deze leegte op m’n deurmat op te vullen en ook mijn favoriete postbode aan het werk te houden heb ik gelukkig een nieuwe hobby.
The Internet is what we make it, and is constantly being recreated by organizations, companies, and countries with specific interests and agendas. Either we fight for a seat at the table, or the future of the Internet becomes something that is done to us.
