  1. Back to security vs privacy, I was glad you made the point that this was a limited situation even though it didn’t change Daryn’s views that are 100% privacy. Without going through my prior post, Apple is making a mistake to make this case as the “line in the sand”. The facts show the owner deceased, next adult next of kin deceased, and the phone was owned by the County who is not contesting the FBI’s request. They should have quietly helped the FBI in this case and saved the battle for a legitimate privacy situation. Picking this wrong battle to enter might have just doomed them in the courts and with future unintended legal consequences.

  2. I was listening to the messages of the day in episode 2691 when either Jennie or Scott asked who was teaching information evaluation skills. Your local librarians are one of the groups who are. As part of our job we help patrons doing research find and evaluate information. Recently the ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries) has come out with a framework for the creation and evaluation of information in all formats. The 6 broad frames are:
    1. Authority is constructed and contextual 2. Information creation as a process 3. Information has value 4. Research as Inquiry 5. Scholarship as conversation 6. Searching as strategic exploration

    If you are interested in reading about the framework in more detail you can find it at http://www.ala.org/acrl/sites/ala.org.acrl/files/content/issues/infolit/Framework_ILHE.pdf .

    Love the show.
