George Galloway to turn to Kickstarter to fund Anti-Tony-Blair film

George Galloway is to follow in the footsteps of Charlie Kaufman, Spike Lee and Zach Braff by turning to Kickstarter to realise his film-making ambitions. Galloway is teaming up with documentary-maker Greg Ward to make The Killing of Tony Blair, which, according to Ward, “will bring together many of the things George has been fighting for during his long political career”. In Ward’s words, The Killing of Tony Blair “details how Blair killed the Labour Party, killed hundreds of thousands of people in Iraq and how he made ‘a killing’ out of doing both”. Ward and Galloway met while the former was making a film about the English Defence League, entitled Far Right, Far…

Meet the Student Crowdfunding Her Unpaid Internship with Harry Reid

Meet the Student Crowdfunding Her Unpaid Internship with Harry Reid Jessica Pardon, an incoming intern for Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid, can’t afford to do the prestigious unpaid internship on her own. So, the college student is crowdfunding the $6,500 she believes it will take to pay for her four-month stint in D.C. And while demonstrating an affinity for fundraising is a good strategy for anyone looking to get into politics, it’s not clear how her new bosses will respond to the spotlight it shines on the whole fact that Harry Reid doesn’t pay his interns in the first place. Pardon, who is 20, is a sophomore…

Pirate Bay founder crowdfunds messaging app to combat government spying

Pirate Bay founder crowdfunds messaging app to combat government spying

One of the Pirate Bay file-sharing site’s founders has announced plans for a “totally secure” rival to WhatsApp and Apple’s iMessage services.  Hemlis, which means secret in Swedish, will use end-to-end encryption so messages are seen only by the sender and recipient. Peter Sunde said it was a response to governments spying on users’ data. The iOS and Android project is quickly approaching its $100,000 (£149,133) funding target. However, Apple and WhatsApp say communications using their services are already “fully encrypted”. Blackberry is also planning to extend its BBM chat service – which can be made fully secure – to other mobile operating systems. The…
