Dick is the Vessel

The Multilogue

We talk about the Patriot Act, the French Patriot Act, China’s Great Cannon, and the challenges of technologically illiterate legislators vying to control the Internet — all through a dick PRISM.

The Multilogue

We talk about the challenges of net neutrality, the definition of lawful content, the importance of encryption-enforced privacy, and the unlikely champion of reason and individual rights.
