Yes, Peter - I'd love to see a video of Rep Mizuno attempting to justify this bill. In addition to outraging his constituents, I bet it would be hilarious in its cluelessnes about what he thinks he's proposing vs what he's ACTUALLY proposing.
If I have anything to say about it, whatever happens in Hawaii government goes on YouTube. ;)
A new marketing slogan: What happens in Hawaii stays in Hawaii...on servers accessible by the government for two years.
Aside from Rep Mizuno, contact your LOCAL representative. For myself in Haiku that is
RepresentativeYamashita , Kyle T. (D) Hawaii State Capitol, Room 422Phone 808-586-6330Fax 808-586-6331E-Mail: repyamashita@Capitol.hawaii.gov
Find yours at http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/members/legislators.aspx?chamber=H
The financial burden will be devastating to not just internet companies, but any ISP --- which includes HOTELS and COFFEE SHOPS. And can you imagine the publicity effect this will have on Tourism? "Come to Hawaii - We will remember EVERY web site and email you sent for 2 years."
I knew we'd have to remain vigilant after SOPA/PIPA, but give me a break.
Looks like this is being discussed in numerous places on Tech Hui. Good!
Karen - Great idea. I just sent him a message:
Dear Rep Mizuno,
Can you please post on your Facebook page who suggested this legislation to you and why? It is going in the opposite direction of the increasing calls for more online privacy, not less!
I hope you are seeing the dramatic changes regarding SOPA and PIPA and will withdraw this bill so it can truly address computer crime and not violate the privacy of Hawaii citizens nor overburden the internet service providers.
Rep John Mizumo is on Facebook - send him a message reminding him of SOPA and what happens when the wrath of the Internet descends on your head. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001076881905And don't forget to submit testimony:http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/submittestimony.aspx?billtype=HB&... Type in HB2288 to bring up the testimony page.Here's what I wrote:
Dear Legislators,This bill violates the First Amendment and most likely the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.In addition to its chilling effect on free speech, it's unwarranted spying on U.S. citizens, it also imposes an onerous burden on ISPs. Have you even calculated the cost in terms of simply storing these records?Please kill this bill right away before it goes any farther.Thank youKaren ChunRedwood Games - Bringing you Internet games for 2 decades.
I already sent email. Here is his address in case you'd like to do the same: email@example.com
More than the big brother aspect and the guilty until proven innocent aspect, there is the added financial burden on internet companies, which are already struggling, to buy expensive equipment to comply with this should it move forward. Lastly, it does not say what companies can or can not do with the collected info extra-governmentally, such as sell the data to advertisers.
Very Bad Bill in Hawaii ...
We need to stop this thing ASAP.
