OH MY GOD: THE U.S. GOVT ARE TRYING TO PROTECT THE INTERNET FROM PEOPLE LIKE _ME_ #guardian
No wonder it’s so fucked up:
Two branches of the US government are introducing cybersecurity legislation on Wednesday but hackers, the very people the government is trying to protect the internet from, have serious doubts about the government’s ability to legislate technology.
President Barack Obama is expected to mention an executive order on cybersecurity in Tuesday’s state of the union, with details on the order to be released Wednesday morning. That same day, congressman Mike Rogers will reintroduce Cispa, the cybersecurity bill that allows private companies to share information about cyberthreats with the government.
