U.S. digital security expert Bruce Schneier says that while Brazil's response is a rational reaction to NSA spying, it is likely to embolden "some of the worst countries out there to seek more control over their citizens' Internet. That's Russia, China, Iran and Syria."Well now.... Russia is saner than America and is already emboldened; China and Persia already have isolated net systems; and Syria is too busy killing itself to worry much about the web. Best part:
[If Brazil proceeds with this], Silicon Valley's bottom line could be hit by lost business and higher operating costs: Brazilians rank No. 3 on Facebook and No. 2 on Twitter and YouTube..... could cost the U.S. cloud computing industry ... as much as $35 billion by 2016 in lost business.The real Amazon taking business from the fake Amazon. Love it. More power to the Southern Hemisphere.
