Friday links:
  • France is trying to force Twitter to reveal the identities of users who made racist posts there. It's a new technology twist on the old question of whether to criminalize hate speech.
  • Kevin Gosztola calls the PBS documentary on drones an "infomercial" for Lockheed Martin, which financially supported the program.
  • Someday in the future, San Francisco's streetlights could double as surveillance tools.
  • A stop and frisk was caught on tape in Brooklyn -- and the NYPD seems to acknowledge that it was illegal.
