Privacy, Security, Encryption I was reminded of Sun Microsystems' Scott McNealy's infamous sound byte (used as the title of this article) when I read about Google CEO Eric Schmidt's foot-in-mouth moment during a recent CNBC interview (YouTube Link). Here's what Schmidt said: "I think judgment matters. If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines -- including Google -- do retain this information for some time and it's important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities."

to scan every blog post to make sure that it is legit and doesn't contain lies.

The only people that would oppose such a commission would be liars since if you are telling the truth you will have nothing to worry about.

Because as we know justice is always 100% correct, and nobody has ever been falsely convicted. Truth matters very little these days. You can be the most honest person in the world and someone will still do you over.
