Today is Father’s Day. Like Mother’s Day, children and spouses show their love today with breakfast in bed, gifts and cards. My daughter will prepare a Father’s Day lunch for her dad. Why lunch? Because he is now (I’m writing this in the morning) playing his weekly soccer tournament. He can’t play soccer with a full tummy.
My eleven years old daughter and I have been following the updates about the NSA scandal closely. We discussed about it when it came out last week-end. She asked me what it really meant for us as active internet users. I told her people presumed about the spying but had no slightest idea how big it was. After it came out, it seemed like the presumption has been confirmed. What Snowden leaked was shocking to some extent that major brands like Google, Facebook, Skype, YouTube and many more provide an entry at their backdoor to NSA for gaining the information.
This month is the 8th anniversary of this blog, my online home. I have been blogging from 2003 in Friendster. Two years later somewhere in June I switched to blogspot (the Friendster blogposts were unfortunately not migrated) hence the established date of this blog. In 2008 I migrated it here.
