This is what I woke up to this morning. Click the picture to take you to the blog post Facebook is referring to in the email. Thankfully, I’ve locked down my account and the information on there is negligible.
There’s a difference between pretty sure that all the bug placing and spying in movies are probably happening, to knowing that your government is actively engaging in such behaviour. Right now no-one really feels safe, were the tin foil hat conspirators, and the people with placards right all along? Is our every move being watched? In this information Age where we believe we can be free, travel wherever, connect to whomever, are we really all that free? Can we really go anywhere? Well, not really, and there doesn’t seem to be much we can do about it.
I know it sounds like I’m being dramatic, but with what is currently unfolding with PRISM, GCHQ and I’m sure countless of untolled other organisations, right now feels pretty dangerous.
