Barack Obama:

I think I own my data ...

Evgeny Morozov:

Verizon ... joins many other champions of the "sharing economy" in insisting that "people today are embracing a sharing society" ... Gone are the burdens of ownership!

Kim Zetter:

Obama did not elaborate on what kinds of privacy and civil liberties protections would be put in place for the information-sharing program.

Alistair Gray:

Cyber attacks now present such a danger to global business that governments should step in to cover the risks, the head of the largest Lloyd's of London insurer has warned.

David Sanger:

Kaspersky Lab says it has seen evidence of $300 million in theft through clients, and believes the total could be triple that. The majority of the targets were in Russia, but many were in Japan, the United States and Europe. The silence around the investigation appears motivated in part by the reluctance of banks to concede that their systems were so easily penetrated, and in part by the fact that the attacks appear to be continuing.

Joseph M. Demarest Jr., assistant director of the F.B.I.'s cyberdivision:

We're fighting Ph.D.s on the other side of the world.

Barack Obama:

There's no scenario in which we don't want really strong encryption.

Gwen Harkness:

New York-based Senior Health Partners has notified 2,700 members of a breach after a registered nurse employed by its business associates had a laptop and mobile phone stolen. The laptop was encrypted, but the encryption key was in the laptop bag and also stolen.

The Horror, The Horror:

Owner: Take this object, but beware it carries a terrible curse!

Homer: [worried] Ooooh, that's bad.

Owner: But it comes with a free Frogurt!

Homer: [relieved] That's good.

Owner: The Frogurt is also cursed.

Homer: [worried] That's bad.
