Many bad pieces of legislation like H.B. 2288 are introduced each year. Check the link status below. It's already getting killed.

"Deferred" is legislative code for we want to kill the bill. It may get a miracle and make it out of committee but it's highly unlikely it will ever see the light of day.

Very Bad Bill in Hawaii ...

Rep John MIzuno of Oahu is lead sponsor of a new bill that requiring the creation of virtual dossiers on state residents. The measure, H.B. 2288, says "Internet destination history information" and "subscriber's information" such as name and address must be saved for two years.  H.B. 2288, which was introduced Friday, says the dossiers must include a list of Internet Protocol addresses and domain names visited. 

We need to stop this thing ASAP.

And then get rid of anyone who sponsored or supports it.

@Kevin I agree. Litigious people like this are parasites on innovators and any precedent that holds content platforms responsible for legal content that simply offends people is bad. It sounds like Facebook pulled it as soon as it moved into a dubious legal realm. People also have to be realistic about what is possible. Facebook has almost a billion pages, groups and events. They cannot be omniscient.

Somehow I find this hard to believe. Seriously, Mark Zuckerberg advocating the demise of Israel? Did anyone happen to catch his last name? If not, it's Zuckerberg. I find it highly suspect that he would be furthering radical Islam. Facebook is in the business of free speech so it monitored the site and pulled it only after deliberation-- it was their decision as a business. So what if this guy bringing the suit thought it should have been pulled sooner and didn't like it in the first place. It isn't his decision or his business. The case will never see the light of day. Much ado about nothing.

Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg sued for $1 billion -- this ain't no "April Fool's" joke nor laughing matter!

Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, and a US Senate candidate in 2004, has filed a lawsuit against Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg for their role in furthering a “radical” Facebook Page called “Third Palestinian Intifada,” which openly advocated another uprising against the citizens of Israel. The complaint reserves the right to be amended into a class action suit and prays for compensatory and punitive damages in excess of $1 billion.

It’s April 1st and yet I saw this story last night. I thought it might be an early April Fools’ joke until I found the 7-page complaint (PDF) today. It alleges assault and negligence, including willful and wanton conduct, gross negligence and recklessness on the part of the Defendants, because Klayman’s life, as well as other similarly situated Jews who are prominent public figures and otherwise, have had their lives put at risk.




Also, for more background on this story, please refer to two previous articles:

1) Facebook won’t remove The Third Intifada page against Israel


2) Facebook backpedals: removes Third Palestinian Intifada Page against Israel

Burt, I'm not sure who the primary contact is, but start with Jeff Bennett - He's the one who posts on the blog.  The about page lists him (and wife) as founders. .... and love to talk to you sometime about Maui Makers - the maker space we're setting up here (dinner meetup w/MauiTechies on Jan 11

Hi Jerry, Who can I talk to about the Social Media user group meeting coming up? I would like to include a mention on the upcoming Bytemarks Cafe.
Comment by Daniel Leuck on January 2, 2011 at 4:54pm
Hi Jerry - In our experience there is no way around posting an event in
multiple places because some people spend most of their web time on
Facebook, some spend most of it on Twitter and some prefer local niche
networks like Hawaii Threads, TechHui, etc. Its best to cast a wide net, but only post to relevant areas in relevant sites to avoid being viewed as spammy.
Comment by Jerry Isdale on January 2, 2011 at 4:22pm

Mika linked the event up here.

One of the problems with Social Media is there are so many choices - fbook, here, personal blogs, corp sponsor blogs, twitter, etc.  I'm not one of the Social Media User Group organizers but figured there may some interest here.  

How do others deal with the plethora of SMedia sites?  How do you target your audience?  Known people are easier - they can be on your mail list or blog feed subscribers.  But how do you get the word out so new people can find your events/group?
