Facebook, Google and WhatsApp plan to increase encryption of user data

encryption improved by major corporationsSilicon Valley’s leading companies – including Facebook, Google and Snapchat – are working on their own increased privacy technology as Apple fights the US government over encryption, the Guardian has learned.

The projects could antagonize authorities just as much as Apple’s more secure iPhones, which are currently at the center of the San Bernardino shooting investigation. They also indicate the industry may be willing to back up their public support for Apple with concrete action.

Why I quit my job as a reporter today

Steve Majerus CollinsChristmas Eve, 2015

Twenty five years ago, as a young reporter, I sat in an Upstate New York courtroom where a judge ordered me to hand over a leaked hospital lab slip that showed a state trooper had been drunk during a late-night crash. When I refused, I thought I would wind up behind bars, the culmination of a months-long drama that forced me to confront both the best and worst parts of my chosen profession. In the end, fortunately, I dodged jail time without giving in.

Now, no longer young, I once again face a moment that calls for me to put my own needs aside and to stand once more for principle.

Our review found 27 articles quoting (or authored by) university professors after they received Monsanto funding, but without disclosing that funding.
