Forget Nokia: Finland's promising future is to be server central

Finland is said to enjoy strong legal protection over government surveillance of data, particularly when compared to neighbouring Sweden.

That is the current situation, but in a fit of incomprehensible me-tooism, officials now want to change that and allow mass surveillance of the net. Pure stupidity. It would not really help with security (baddies can always find a way around such wiretapping when aware of it), and would remove one competitive advantage in the data centre business.
