Let’s talk about privacy.

I have been reading a whole lot about the NSA as of late, as I’m sure many of you have been doing as well. I would like to go on record as saying I think this is the single largest crime against humanity since WWII. The difference here, of course, is we have been largely kept in the dark about it all.

What can we do about it?
If you know the answer to this, there are many of use who would like to know.

What else can we do?
Educate ourselves. We know now how horrible these revelations are. We are really only just beginning to learn how bad they are. The first thing any of us can do is to educate ourselves about what the NSA and GCHQ are doing, to whom they are doing it to, and why they are doing it.

I would love to talk with some others who feel the same as I do about this and hold some meetings. Like a user group.

Any takers?

I have blurred the person who posted this. Some of you will know who it is. If you are the person, I hope you think it is ok that I have republished this. I think it is one of the best things I’ve seen in some time.



sometimes we get caught up in the day-to-day. sometimes those things are important. sometimes you change jobs and your world turns upside down, and the previous two sentences are the excuses you use to justify your inability/unwillingness to interact with others.
