How the Supreme Court Destroyed Property Rights and a Little Pink House

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

From Sarah McIntosh at Flint Hills Center for Public Policy:

Title: How the Supreme Court Destroyed Property Rights and a Little Pink House

Author: Sarah McIntosh

Three years ago the United States Supreme Court made a decision that not only threatened the very core of Americans’ property rights, but also destroyed the dreams of a woman who just wanted to live in her beautiful pink house.

Perhaps you have already heard the story. If not, I will warn you it is a sad one. Ms. Suzette Kelo moved to New London Connecticut in 1997 after a divorce. She found an old cottage from 1893 that was in dismal shape, but she saw the promise in it. Even the front door was overgrown when she first laid eyes on it.

ComputerWorld: ‘What if Google decided YOU were malware?’

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

Computerworld.com:

Google screwed up massively this morning, identifying every page on the Internet as one that could “harm your computer.” Most users would click on a link, and instead of the page requested, received a big warning message. This went on for entire hour.

The company said that the problem was caused by “human error.”

Because the error essentially shut down Google for everyone in the entire world, the company fixed it immediately.

But what if Google made another error, and decided YOU were malware? What if the company, for whatever reason, came to the conclusion that you were a spammer, or a criminal, or somehow abused their rules? What if they simply invalidated your password to prevent you from using their many services?
