Any reader who thinks we don't have a totalitarian police state in the USA, should try to explain away the following well documented, egregious case. Don't forget that the USA can now legally send the military after you and "make you shut up" without any due process nor habeas corpus.

Quote from: Armstrong
So when the Supreme Court ordered the government to explain what the hell was going on, they realized they would lose. You have to at least charge someone. Now, there was not even a charge. Therefore, I was released to prevent the Supreme Court from ruling against them. What did they do then? They used the terrorist nonsense as the excuse to now indefinitely imprison anyone at any time without even charging them, lawyers, or a right to trial. The rumor is they used Lindsey Graham threatening him because he is gay and if he did not strip Americans of all rights, he would be exposed.

Now a journalist Chris Hedges and several others sued the Obama Administration on the grounds of it being unconstitutional to indefinitely hold citizens as they did to me without charges, lawyers, or a right to a trial. Judge Katherine Forrest agreed it was unconstitutional and issued an injunction to prevent the government from doing so. This was immediately appealed by the Obama Administration for they are really indistinguishable from George Bush when it comes to expanding government power and destroying the Constitution. The Obama Administration appealed to the higher court – where? Second Circuit Court of Appeals of New York. That court, naturally with the speed of a bullet, instantaneously issued a temporary stay on the injunction allowing the government to indefinitely detain anyone it desires.

The notorious Second Circuit, perhaps the most anti-constitution court in the USA, will make the decision. The way this goes, if they side with the government, you can appeal to the Supreme Court but they take only perhaps 100 out of 10 thousand petitions. If the government lost, whenever they appeal, they are normally granted the right to be heard by the Supreme Court. So if the Second Circuit sides with government, the burden is then on the citizen to show why this case should be heard.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me

Apparently the Android permissions prompt is optional or something.

Quote from: Gilad Bracha @ co-author of the Java language spec
talking with Gilad Bracha. He works at Google and he is currently working on Dart. He is best known as the co-author of the Java language specification. Gilad, your keynote today was called “Whither web programming”. Can you tell us a little bit about the title of your talk and summarize it?

Sure. The title was a bit of a pun which I am sure nobody got which is the way I like my puns to be. Basically, the point is where is the web going or where it should go in the future and also the idea that there is a risk if it does not address these issues that it might not be as dominant or as popular as it should be as a programming platform in particular because of competition from app stores and things like that which have certain advantages, in particular with respect to the ability to reliably install an application. So, the web has this great advantage of zero install, but it actually does not have a way to reliably ensure that that application is there for you offline or when the network is slow or unreliable, etc, which is an added feature as it were that is one of the weaknesses that I was talking about.

What direction is the web going in? What is the best-case scenario and what is the worst-case scenario?

I guess the best – let’s start with the best – the best case scenario is that a series of missing primitives that would allow a great variety of programming languages to be implemented efficiently on the web, get standardized and put into all the browsers in a relatively quick manner. I mean it is a standard process and it does take time. There already is this flowering of all kinds of programming paradigms on the web and I think that is a good thing. I think that mono-lingual platforms either become multi-lingual or they die. Look at the JVM, for example. If we do that, then the web will evolve into something where you really have this ideal combination of the advantages of the network and the advantages of an independent client. So, things will work for you online and offline, your apps will synchronize transparently for you, wherever you go, for multiple devices, your data will synchronize transparently with collaboration and so forth. All these things that the network can enable will work well on the web, in an open fashion, in a standardized fashion. That is what we'd really like to see happening.

The worst case scenario is that none of these things happen and instead you see developer energy focused more on mobile platforms and you get more of these walled garden kind of things like iOS frankly where your ability to innovate is limited but in some sense there are better primitives and they actually become more competitive with the web.

Can you summarize then your vision for the future of the web and the web applications?

Well, I think we want a world where applications can work online and offline as much as their functionality allows. Obviously, if you are accessing some giant database, you may need real access to the network. Or if you are communicating, obviously there is nothing that can be done. But there are many applications where it is plausible to store your data and the application locally and it will work for you offline and I think the platform should make it easy for you to do that. You should be able to synchronize when you are back online and synchronize your application and your data and again, it should happen in a very lightweight fashion, it should be handled as much as possible by the platform so that developers do not have to solve this rather hard problem over and over again. It should produce an experience that is as good or better than any native application does.
