I haven’t linked or talked much about the latest news regarding the NSA, PRISM, or Edward Snowden’s leaks. Truthfully, I’m unsurprised and feel this changes nothing about the current state of privacy and technology. People are overreacting only because ignorance is bliss. Anyone even truly familiar with what networked technologies can do are simply reaffirmed of suspicions we’ve had for years.
Let’s be completely frank here, security and privacy to those in the know in regards to online behavior simply doesn’t exist. That said, it doesn’t mean that we as bloggers, web developers and the like need to aide in the dance more-so than absolutely necessary, and yesterday’s flub-up with Facebook was an all-too-painful reminder as such.
