Who Needs Lawful Access?: Canadian Telcos Hand Over Data on Thousands of Subscribers Without a Warrant | Michael Geist Blog

The debate over Bill C-13, the government's latest lawful access bill, is set to resume shortly.  The government has argued that the bill should not raise concerns since new police powers involve court oversight and the mandatory warrantless disclosure provisions that raised widespread concern in the last bill have been removed. 

 

While that is the government's talking points, I've posted on how this bill now includes incentives for telecom companies and other intermediaries to disclose subscriber information without court oversight since it grants them full civil and criminal immunity for doing so.

 

Moreover, newly released data suggests that the telecom companies don't seem to need much of an incentive as they are already disclosing subscriber data on thousands of Canadians every year without court oversight.

This week, the government responded to NDP MP Charmaine Borg's request for information on government agencies requests to telecom providers for customer information.

 

The data reveals that the telecom companies have established law enforcement databases that provides ready access to subscriber information. For example, the Competition Bureau reports that it "accessed the Bell Canada Law Enforcement Database" 20 times in 2012-13. 

 

The wording may be important, since the Bureau indicates that it accessed the information, rather than Bell provided it. It is not clear what oversight or review is used before a government agency may access the Bell database.

This data and information leak has been done without concesnt from the clients of the Canadian Telcos. This is relevent becuase, usually, this would require the use of a warrant. However, the companies have found someway to realease this information without the use of a warrant. Sounds Suspicious - Brandon Lee

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog | Applying Technology | Scoop.it
SlideShare is a great platform for visual content and an amazing company: in just a few years, it has become the YouTube of presentations, one of the Top 150 sites in the world with an impressive 3 Billion views per month from 60 million unique visitors. Perhaps like many others, I originally thought of SlideShare as a platform to use only on specific occasions: when I had talked at a conference, when we had produced great slides worth sharing or when we had something specifically visual to communicate. I had had great experience and results but I don’t talk to conferences every day and so I sometimes felt I was missing out. And then, one night of September last year, I heard Jason Miller present at one of our #leancontent events and it became all clear: the team and I realized we could use SlideShare in a very different way - not just as a tool to recycle and share what you already created for other purposes but as a media channel that we would update on a regular basis. In a word, as a visual blog.

We decided to try it: over the next few months, we tried to publish at least every other week to SlideShare, integrating it in our content calendar alongside our blog and our Scoop.it content curations.

These are the first results after 4 months running this experiment. Continue reading →

Guidelines Proposed in Canada to Open Courts to Social Media

Guidelines Proposed in Canada to Open Courts to Social Media | Applying Technology | Scoop.it

Intersting article related to social media in the court system.A group of judges are proposing a set of national guidelines for the use of social media.

 

Apparently, there currently exists pockets of policies among provinces — some have no policy at all.

 

Finally there is the recognition that there is a growing numbers of people  and professions tha tdepend on social media  for information. 

 

British Columbia and Saskatchewan both brought in new policies allowing "accredited journalists" and lawyers to use electronic devices in trial courts, with Saskatchewan even specifying that they may tweet from the courtroom. On the other end of the scale many provinces allow anyone to use such devices in appeal courts. However it is also noted that the phrase "accredited" journalist has the potential itself to cause problems. A recent incidence witnessed the application of  an independent blogger for accreditation was turned down.

 


Clearly there needs to be a level of consistency across the country. I am please to know that there is the level of recognition that social media is not a fad and it is here to stay.

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages | Applying Technology | Scoop.it
While some debate whether Google+ is a ghost town or not, the search giant's social network quietly passed the 1 Billion user mark. That's right: 1 Billion people have a Google+ account which is 2x Twitter's user base and only 15% less than Facebook's. Perhaps more importantly, the +1 button is pressed more than 5 million times a day and 340 million of its users are active.
Scoopiteers didn’t need to wait for those metrics to be public to demand that we add Google+ to the Scoop.it’s sharing options: as our platform is a hub to discover, curate and share content to feed your online channels, it’s natural to offer as many distribution options as possible. So today, after integrating  with Facebook profiles and pages, LinkedIn profiles, groups and pages, Twitter and many other social platform such as Wordpress or Tumblr, we’re excited to launch our integration with Google+ with 2 new features:
