The DQYDJ Weekender, 6/8/2013

It was only a couple weeks back when I dropped an epic privacy article on you – and it turns out now that the NSA is collecting cellular information about all Verizon customers (Don’t look at me – I voted for Kodos!), and has a program called PRISM targeting social media and online applications.

I forget where I read this comment, but someone asked why it was that the public sector was the one keeping everything private while all of the private sector’s secrets were known by the public sector.  Touche, anonymous internet commenter – touche!

Anyway… in my article, I said I was optimistic about the balance between security and privacy – and as long as these programs don’t fade into the background with a collective American shrug I’ll remain optimistic.  There is a better balance between security and privacy than 100% and 0%.
