Memory is a record.
People only have substance within the memories of other people. And that’s why there were all kinds of myself. There weren’t a lot of myself per se, I was just inside all sorts of people, that’s all.

A cybersecurity scholar argues that the power to subpoena information that consumers have stored in the cloud is overly broad.

"The Court’s decision in [United States vs. Antoine] Jones could have a significant impact on everyone’s privacy because most of us are carrying a tracking device everyday: our cell phone."

The ACLU, on the Supreme Court’s decision to consider whether GPS tracking without a warrant is unconstitutional. Next term, the high court will weigh a Justice Department appeal of a court ruling that threw out the life sentence of a Washington, D.C., man who was convicted of distributing cocaine.
