Spot the LED

I finally splurged (an impulse buy, no less) on an LED light bulb.   It’s a Philips VisionLED 10.5-Watt 3000K 800 lumen A19 base LED light bulb.   On the packaging there is a claim to be equivalent to a 60W bulb.   I actually replaced a standard 60W incandescent and it is noticeably brighter.   For $17.88, I’m quite impressed.

I stumbled across an blog post by Dmytri Kleiner from May of 2012 that has a criticism of a recent speech given by Eben Moglen. You can find the criticism here. For the most part, I agree with the criticism and the conclusion. It’s discouraging and almost ominous.

Practically, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to opt-out without some consequence. It’s also as difficult as Moxie Marlinspike says, “reduce the scope” of your choice to use these platforms.
