I wanted to take this opportunity and say a huge Thank You to everyone who made yesterday a very special day for me. It was truly one of the greatest birthday celebrations I’ve ever had. You are all truly the best!
Since the early morning till late night I’ve received countless phone calls (from several countries), text messages, emails, Skype, Google Talk and Facebook messages. I’ve got a few awesome presents and cards. I had a surprise party at work, which included a chocolate cake with my name, and a case of German beer (unbelievable!). I’ve also had plenty of drink – enough to kill a small army, I think – at Ship Inn in the company of friends.
It was an absolutely amazing day! Thank you everyone!
Surveillance is the business model of the Internet. We build systems that spy on people in exchange for services. Corporations call it marketing.

These machines look monstrous!
