When members of the bunkering community choose their communication tools such they will need to think about what is most important, such as the ability to archive conversations, have an application that works both on desktops and mobile devices, the ability to create groups, if they prefer applications that are open to all that free or very cheap to use, or proprietary “member only” applications designed specifically for the needs of bunker buyers, suppliers, traders and brokers, and that feed in live market information such as oil prices.The Guardian will be hosting a web chat with Wilko on Tuesday May 31st from 12.30pm, so if you have a burning question for the big man, now’s your moment!

HARI SREENIVASAN: So, you are saying that it’s not just the targeted folks that got swept up in this net. SPENCER ACKERMAN: It’s a major question, because GCHQ, like the NSA, does not have the ability on the front end of its bulk collection programs to filter out data coming from the U.
