Years before Snowden made his public release of NSA documents and seemingly made the big reveal to the public at large, the fact that the intelligence agencies within the United States Government were operating in questionable ways concerning our right to privacy is nothing new….for those who choose to remain on top of the issue. During the last presidential campaign I wrote the following blog entry about assaults to our privacy on the net, years before we ever knew who Edward Snowden was. There is a blog entry that has been making the rounds calling for a “reset” to the net. Well, yeah. This is what I wrote of the issues facing us about the size and potential scope of our loss of privacy on the net in my blog entry on my glass blog entitled “Designing Control.” Give it a read to get up to speed on the history of this monster born in the bowels of 9/11.
