Bob Skywalker. My favourite Metro dog.

Bob Skywalker. My favourite Metro dog. Period.

Bob-Skywalker
Aldo he is just one year old, his charm and joyful eyes melts even the coldest hearts of the coldest people, in the coldest winter, outside, ever!

His owners, super talented and amazing engaged couple Christine Wendelborg and Lasse Olsen (Christine is super talented Photographer, and Lasse Olsen is the founder and editor for Othercastles, a blogger, podcaster and entrepreneur, and also my buddy and colleague @Metronet), are so blessed to have this cute fellow around all the time. Maybe I’ll have separate blog post on them, but, for now, this blog is all about Bob! Bob Skywalker! @Christine & @Lasse: “I am totally corruptive, if you give me Bob for a couple of days, I could write even two blog posts about you, this is fair trade… Going once… Going twice… : )

 

Few awesomeness of his:

This guy,folks, really brings joy and another touch to Metronet office. I know that every single time when I see Lasse coming in, I always look around him for his small furry buddy… And as soon as I lay my eyes on Bob, I am quite sure that is going to be an awesome day.

And one quick tip, if you ever come across this guy, please don’t feed him, Lasse and Christine are in charge if that, and they are doing awesome job.

I know this is too much Bob’s images, but I just couldn’t pick just one, or couple, so I picked a LOT! :) Be patient and wait for all of them to load, it’s totally worth it, believe me. Bob is awesome!

Me and @christinewendel looked at some puppies today. April is getting closer!

I am gonna end this post with picture of us, together, just petting on the floor, here @Metronet office last Friday… He was so tired and sleepy, and seems like playing for a whole day, and chasing can really beat you down :) and he was so cute and I just couldn’t resist, I had to join him laying on the floor… I petted him and he fell asleep. You got to love this guy. I know I do…

PS: I promised myself that my the first Vine is going to be about Bob, this is a fair replacement. :)

In one second on the Internet there are…

10 years ago Skype, Facebook, YouTube, Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, Dropbox, and Instagram didn’t exist.

20 years ago there were only 130 websites total, Google wasn’t even around yet, and you had to pay for an email account through an ISP.

30 years ago there was no internet.

I stumbled upon this awesome website, and I just had to share it with you.

Look how today ( 12th August, 2013. ) one second on the Internet looks like, through Reddit votes cast, Instagram photos uploaded, Facebook likes…  I guess all of these data in couple of year will be funny, but… We’ll see…

Don’t miss the “And then there’s emails per second…” blue button all the way on the bottom of the website.

Edward Snowden, we thank you!

Inspired by this tweet of my fellow colleague Bjørn Johansen I have decided that is time for me to start blogging. I am also recommending you to start following Bjørn, the most of my retweets are his tweets :)

A very brave and awesome guy, decided to give-up on everything he had just so the world can find out what is really going on, “X files” TV Show tagline “The Truth Is Out There”, came alive, for at least once more.

Edward Joseph Snowden (born June 21, 1983) is an American computer specialist who worked for the CIA and the NSA and leaked details of several top-secret United States and British government mass surveillance programs to the press.

Based on information Snowden leaked to The Guardian in May 2013 while employed at NSA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, the British newspaper published a series of exposés in 2013 that revealed programs such as the interception of U.S. and European telephone metadata and the PRISMXKeyscore, and TemporaInternet surveillance programs. Snowden’s disclosures are said to rank among the most significant NSA security breaches in United States history.

On June 14, 2013, United States federal prosecutors charged Snowden with espionage and theft of government property. Snowden had left the United States prior to the publication of his disclosures, first to Hong Kong and then to Russia, where he received temporary asylum and now resides in an undisclosed location.

Snowden has been a subject of controversy: he has been variously called a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, and a traitor. Snowden has defended his leaks as an effort “to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.” U.S. officials condemned his actions as having done “grave damage” to the U.S. intelligence capabilities. Meanwhile, the media disclosures have fueled debates both inside and outside the United States over mass surveillancegovernment secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy in the Post-9/11 era.

During the course of his work with the US government in the military, CIA, and NSA, he became aware of government deception and its widespread surveillance programs. A firm believer in transparency and freedom, he made the decision to leak this information he had, including the NSA’s collecting of millions of Verizon customers’ phone records, and the ins-and-outs of the US government’s illegal PRISM spy program and XKeyscore system, as well as the tens of millions of dollars that the NSA spent to fund the UK’s intelligence agency, GCHQ.

Knowing that he would face serious retaliation that could cost him his life, Snowden left the country and spent over a month in the Moscow airport, seeking asylum from several countries and awaiting travel documents, until Thursday, August 1st, when he was granted temporary asylum in Russia.

And it’s not like he had nothing to lose. Snowden left a pretty good life behind – His family, a loving girlfriend, a six-figure salary, a nice home in Hawaii. He gave it all up and has risked his freedom.

Now that the world knows about the NSA’s abuses, an entire generation of Internet users have been politicized — and others have been given the courage to blow the whistle as well. Just yesterday, a Federal Prosecutor exposed a top secret — and highly illegal — DEA program that allows the NSA and other agencies to share the information they collect in their dragnets with local law enforcement (ie the cops in your town), let’s them use it to launch an investigation, and then instructs them to cover it up. Whistleblowers like Snowden must be supported and treated like the heros they are. The government is trying to scare others from making the brave stands that Edward Snowden made. They are trying to label him as a traitor, saying that he aided and abetted the enemy. But really, what he did was stand up for us when the government was betraying us – the people. We need more Edward Snowdens. We need to make it clear that we will be there to voice our support for those who expose illegal government activity.
