Google is challenging a demand by the U.S. government for private user information in a national security probe, according to a court filing. It “appears" to be the first time a major communications company is pushing back after getting a so-called National Security Letter, said the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an Internet privacy group. The challenge comes three weeks after a federal judge in San Francisco ruled that NSLs, which are issued without a warrant, are unconstitutional.

 香港倡議訂立檔案法| Advocate for Archives Law in Hong Kong

香港回歸以來,大量政府檔案被銷毀,本地珍貴的歷史資料白白失去。申訴專員公署上月公布就公開資料機制及政府檔案管理制度進行直接調查。民間機構獨立媒體(香港)遂發動網上聯署,要求立即訂立檔案法。

While Hong Kong’s new city mayor CY Leung was being elected and inaugurated, billions of sheets worth of government records were trashed. In fact, if you stacked up all the trashed records, they would be about 40 times the height of the world’s tallest building Dubai’s Burj Khalifa ( which is 829.8 meters.) Hong Kong In-Media, a NGO that promotes the development of citizen media and information freedom took the opportunity to launch a campaign, demanding immediate legislation to protect government archives and public access to information.
