I've been taking a break

I've been taking a break from blogging.
In case you wonder why, it's because I was rattled to see an Italian public prosecutor scour my blog and print out copies of it to help him indict and prosecute me and some of my Google colleagues for some "privacy" criminal theory. I'm all for free speech, and love a robust debate of privacy issues, but seeing your own words being combed through by a prosecutor who's looking for evidence to convict you in criminal court is enough to give anyone reason to pause from blogging.
I'll start blogging again soon. At least I know I have one reader.

So sad... Reminds me of Richelieu: "If you give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him."

I hope you're well, and able to blog again soon.

Dear Peter,

that would be at least two readers already :-) Wishing you all the best (most of all good nerves) through this legal charade. And please, do keep blogging :-)
