[liberationtech] IGP Blog :: Technology as symbol: Is resistance to surveillance technology being misdirected?

Oh, no, no axe at all - genuinely curious for different arguments. 

Also have heard (unlike Jillian, apparently) in private conversation with some vendor reps a strong desire for regulation as that levels (at least for Western companies) the playing field, as far as they are concerned. 

Again, not making a value judgment here, just reporting what I've heard. 

Incidentally, some of these very vendors in Europe are organizing privately to develop internal guidelines for the sale of equipment to certain countries, I hear.

Katrin,

Is there a particular axe that you want to grind, here?

I've read both posts now, and at the risk of being branded (in Andre's
terms) a "199x cyber-libertarian" my impression is that Mueller is all
of practical, pragmatic and correct.

I'd discuss my position but unless there's a specific issue at stake I
feel Mueller has done a better job in two postings than I could
summarise in a few paragraphs - and I wouldn't want to write reams
only to lose focus and invite divergence into irrelevance...
