China has begun streaming court proceedings, this could be fantastic for public awareness. What do you think?

Some trials will inevitably be excluded due to sensitive information. Perhaps Chinas forward-thinking will stretch to other parts of the globe.

Privacy online

Always a hot topic, maintaining privacy online has become increasingly difficult in recent years. We should use Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to protect ourselves, along with web proxies to hide internet traffic from our PCs.

Never give your email address to a website you do not trust, it will lead to unwanted emails and can potentially add you to lists that you do not want your email address to be on.

Keep your credit card details safe, opt for a payment service such as paypal when you are purchasing when it is available for extra payment protection.

A prominent news story where privacy tactics such as the above were not used surround the arrest of a torrent website owner. Although this could be considered justice, it does highlight that some people are simply not aware of the ways they can protect their identities online.

Geocaching throwback

We used to go geocaching when I was younger, it was fun looking for plastic containers with key rings, magnets and stickers in them. Some even used them to share their business cards.

A fun thing to try once, even if it is a little weird to be darting about a field looking for a small lunchbox sized prize.

These are a fantastic excuse to get out of the house and see something new. If you are a Pokemon Go fanatic, why not GeoCache too?
