SearchSecurity: The NSA leaks (verizon and prism)

hi sc-l,

When we build systems, we need to do some thinking about privacy along with our thinking about security.  If we don't 
anticipate how our systems and the data they collect migt be abused, we might not make the right design decicions.  
Just ask Facebook.

Today, SearchSecurity posted my article on the NSA Surveillance.  Please read this:
http://bit.ly/15dB1c5  (turns out that Facebook is a bigger offender in my mind than the NSA).

We live in a democracy in the United States and it is up to us to make clear to our leaders what we expect.  Do some 
thinking for yourself, and then engage your representatives and tell them what you believe we should do about privacy 
as a country.

And when you help build and secure systems, think about what might happen if they are turned against us.
