The EFF is suing the Feds to see if they are over stepping any boundaries when it comes to tapping social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter to investigate possible criminal activity.
The lawsuit, filed in San Francisco, seeks information from a number of federal agencies under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) who are listed as defendants in the case.
The EFF is asking for records from the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, Treasury, the CIA, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence concerning their use of social networking Web sites as investigative, surveillance and data collection tools.

Everyone has a list of bands that they wish they got to see, but never did. One such band on my list is Carcass, one of the first death metal bands I ever heard, and a huge inspiration for my own music. Well, metal-fans, good news:
Legendary British death metal band, CARCASS, will reunite for next year’s Wacken Open Air festival. Bassist/vocalist, Jeff Walker, issued the following statement on behalf of the band:
“Well, they said it would never happen. In fact I said it would never happen. Then I noticed no one pays attention to what I say anyway and I sounded like an idiot…
“Myself, Jeff Walker, on bass and vocals, ‘the semi-legendary’ Bill Steer and Mike Amott on lead guitar and Daniel Erlandsson (ARCH ENEMY), filling in for Ken on drums, look forwards to mutilating your hearing”.
Bring. It. On. 🙂
So Jono here is my list:
Bob Marley and the Wailers – Bob was dead before I started listening to them
Sublime – Bradley was dead before I started Listening to them
Nirvana – Didn’t have a chance to see them before Kurt died
John Lennon- Dead before I was born
Dead Kennedys – Break up and Lawsuit happened before I started listening to them
