Chinas appears to have made headway in the so-called reclamation of disputed areas in the South China Sea, a project to create new land masses using reefs in areas claimed by both Beijing and its neighbors. According to Taiwan and Hong Kong news sources, Chinas naval chief has been surveying islands located in disputed maritime territories, angering nations locked in territorial disputes with China such as the Philppines.

According to Taiwans Want China Times, which cited briefing given in Taipei by Lee Hsiang-chou, the director general of Taiwans National Security Bureau, Chinese admiral Wu Shengli, the commander of the Peoples Liberation Army Navy, completed a survey of five islands in the archipelago known as Spratly Islands. The Spratlys are claimed by multiple Southeast Asian countries, including the Philippines, Brunei and Malaysia. Lee called Wus visit to the islands unprecedented even for China, a nation that continues to assert claims in the area by setting up oil rigs, military outposts and other structures.

Hong Kong news source Takungpao wrote that Wu spent a week surveying the islands and reported that the approval for the mission came directly from Chinas President Xi Jinping. Chinas government has been actively developing its presence in the area. A BBC report in September revealed Chinas efforts in churning out island masses in the disputed waters with factory-like efficiency, turning many of the reefs in the area into new pieces of land to claim. Aerial photographs taken by the Philippine Navy show the massive amount of development that has been done since January, with millions of tons of rock and sand being dredged up from the seafloor. Chinas presence has made other countries in the area worried that new land masses could signal attempts at developing air bases and other military facilities.

During the briefing, Lee also reported that admiral Wu was also overseeing troop drills on a part of the Spratly archipelago the Chinese call Yongshu Island. Known by the Philippines as Fiery Cross Reef, the site is home to about 100 Chinese troops and is the countrys home base for their efforts in the area.

British Prime Minister David Cameron is pictured as he listens to a speech by Mayor of London Boris Johnson on the third day of the annual British Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, central England, on Sept. 30, 2014. Getty

LONDON — Britain’s interior minister has proposed new powers to bar people with extremist views from appearing on television or publishing on social media even if they are not breaking any laws.

Home Secretary Theresa May told a conference of the governing Conservatives that if re-elected next year the party will introduce powers to disrupt people who “spread poisonous hatred” even within the law.

May said Tuesday that only a minority of extremists are violent, but there is “a thread that binds” nonviolent extremism to terrorism.

May says tougher powers are needed to stop young people becoming radicalized. She says at least 500 Britons have travelled to Syria and Iraq, mainly to fight with militant groups.

Tuesday morning, speaking to the BBC, David Cameron said, “the problem that we have had is this distinction of saying ‘we will only go after you if you are an extremist that directly supports violence’ it has left the field open for extremists who know how not to step over the line.”

Cameron spoke on the heels of the release of radical Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary, who was picked up along with eight other men on Sept. 25 and held for just one day.

Choudary, who had faced similar detentions in the past, and the other suspects were arrested on suspicion of encouraging terrorism.

Does the creator of a technology have any moral responsibility for the uses to which it is put? It’s an old question. RememberOppenheimer’s famous quote, “I am become death; the destroyer of worlds”? Worried about the effect of his creation he determined, in the end, when making the atomic bomb, that it was the job of the scientist to make something if he or she could. Society can then determine what might be done with it.

Over the weekend,BBC Click ran an interviewwith two of the developers of the dark wallet, which is an application for the cryptocurrency bitcoin. The idea behind the dark wallet, simply put, is this: bitcoin transactions, although hard to track and monitor, are not entirely anonymous because the block chain keeps a public record of every bitcoin transaction made. Dark wallet obscures who is behind each transaction by using clever stealth addresses and a decentralised mixing system. While not making transactions perfectly anonymous, it’s a significant step forward.

Click showed an unverified Islamist blog, which suggested the terrorist group IS (Islamic State, formerly ISIS) has potentially expressed an interest in dark wallet. The blog read dark wallet could “send millions of dollars worth of bitcoin instantly from the United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, Ghana, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, or wherever else, right to the pockets of the Mujahideen”. It is, read the blog, “simple, easy, and we ask Allah to hasten its usage for us”. Amir Taaki, the chief developer behind the dark wallet, was quizzed by Click about whether he’d be comfortable with ISIS using the technology he’d built. With admirable honesty he replied: “Yeah.” Adding, “you can’t stop people using technology because of your personal bias. We stand for free and open systems where anybody can participate, no matter who you are”.

Many in the (sometimes vocal and aggressive) bitcoin community were unhappyabout how this had been reported, arguing that it was unfair to saddle bitcoin with IS. IS after all, uses plenty of other technologies far more than bitcoin — so why focus on this?

It’s a fair criticism — Bitcoin, and certainly the complicated dark wallet, is hardly the most useful system of financing for a group like IS given its other means. And as I’ve written elsewhere, Bitcoin has several invaluable societal benefits: such as transforming the wasteful and expensive system of making international remittance payments. Yet the BBC was correct to cover it. Almost anything IS does is newsworthy at the moment: especially when it comes to technology. That’s particularly the case when the creator himself doesn’t seem bothered by it.

To understand the reason Taaki was relaxed requires you to understand his ideology. I know something of this because I’ve spent a fair amount of time with him — including atCalafouin Spain, where he first started work on the project — and I wrote about the dark wallet in my bookThe Dark Net.Bitcoin advocates sit on a spectrum of belief, and many of them see the currency as a way of improving financial services. But Taaki, like some within the Bitcoin community is more radical, and could be loosely described as either a cryptoanarchist orcypherpunk. He is not interested in building neutral but effective technology: he sees dark wallet as a political project, a direct way of undermining state power. He believes that powerful encryption systems, like the dark wallet, can guarantee individual liberty in a more reliable way than any manmade law — and he’s hopeful it will help precipitate the collapse of modern national states.

With this radical world view, dark wallet has pitted itself directly against the more mainstream bits of the community. “Many prominent Bitcoin developers are actively in collusion with members of law enforcement and seeking approval from government legislators,” read the original dark wallet blurb. “We believe this is not in Bitcoin users’ self-interest, and instead serves wealthy business interests that make up the self-titled Bitcoin Foundation.” This divide — between those who see Bitcoin as a political or a financial project — runs through the heart of the community. In fact Taaki is probably closer to Bitcoin’s libertarian origins than all those suited businessmen currently falling over themselves to build bitcoin ATM machines or invest venture capital in the currency.The currency’s creator Satoshi Nakamoto’s posts on the Cryptography mailing list were littered with his libertarian outlook — and before that Bitcoin’s roots can be traced to the 90s libertarian cypherpunks, and cryptography geniusDavid Chaum.

Taaki knows that people will use the dark wallet to do bad things. He has, I am sure, no desire whatsoever to help IS — who are the apotheosis of his conception of individual liberty. Yet his overarching ambition is to create tools to secure freedom and defang the state. Some people will suffer in the meantime.

This question will keep coming up. Bitcoin protocols can do a lot more than currency exchange. There are social media platforms based on the same distributed system as Bitcoin, making them hard to close down, and its users very difficult to trace. Especially post-Snowdon, hundreds of people around the world have been working on a dazzling array of software to allow people to stay anonymous online. The direction of travel is towards more decentralisation, more powerful encryption, more distributed systems for anyone who wants it: Jitsi, Jabber, Darkmail, Mailpile, and more. That is good news for anyone who cares about freedom and democracy, especially in the less savoury parts of the world. But I daresay IS will be early adopters — as will other people looking to stay hidden for nefarious purposes.
