Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Not that Toysmart a Decision

Last Friday, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) resolved the controversial Toysmart.com bankruptcy case. After ceasing operations on May 22, 2000, Toysmart.com contracted with a Boston-based management-consulting firm, The Recovery Group, to solicit bids for its assets. Among the assets was a customer list, which contained names, e-mail addresses, and payment information.

CSE Highlights Tort Reform as Gov. George W. Bush Announces Vice Presidential Running Mate

When Gov. Bush announced his vice presidential candidate, Texas CSE staff and key activists were there to highlight the issue of tort reform. Austin CSE activist Mark Wallace said he shook hands with Gov. Bush and Dick Cheney. In a CSE T-shirt and wearing CSE lapel stickers, Angel Arbitua, CSE' s Hispanic grassroots coordinator, was interviewed by a reporter with the WB affiliate in Dallas who said they wanted to cover the Dallas departure of his 55 Hispanic youths heading to the GOP convention on a bus.

A 'Petri Dish' in the Pacific; Conservative Network Aligned With DeLay Makes Marianas a Profitable Cause

BY Juliet Eilperin

Last year, two close associates of one of the most powerful members of the U.S. House spent part of their New Year's holiday 8,000 miles from Washington in the Northern Marianas. Although the islands are known for their balmy weather, golf courses and great snorkeling, the trip could hardly be described as a junket--the advisers to House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) were there on a political mission.

Contested Ohio Supreme Court Race Ensues

The New York Times published an article on June 7th entitled, “A Spirited Campaign for Ohio Court Puts Judges on New Terrain,” highlighting the Ohio Supreme Court race. The Ohio Supreme Court currently consists of seven members with a four to three ideological split led by a liberal activist majority. This majority has consistently struck down legal reform bills passed by the legislature. Most recently, in a move that “defied the will of the people,” the Ohio Supreme Court struck down legislation designed to give back Ohio’s legal system to decent, honest, and hard working citizens. Justice Resnick, in writing the court’s majority opinion, wrote that to do otherwise would make the court “a co-conspirator in the abdication of fundamental rights and liberties.”

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Eating into Civil Liberties…Carnivore is a Threat to Digital Commerce

Yesterday, the House of Representatives held a hearing on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) controversial e-mail surveillance system. The software program is named “Carnivore” because it purportedly allows the Bureau to get to the “meat” quickly. The Carnivore system is terrifying because the “meat” can include all of the e-mail on a network, including a list of what mail is sent and the actual content of the communication.
