> Hi all,
> For ILUG members (like me) who don't do Twitter, Facebook, etc., I thought ye might be interested in knowing about this event. I just saw from another mailing list that at lunch-time tomorrow, the Science Gallery are hosting a panel discussion on the recent news about the extent to which US intelligence organisation spy on their own citizens - and pretty much everybody in the world.
> It's not surprising to me (remember the controversies about PGP, the Clipper Chip, Carnivore, Echelon, etc.) but I'm glad that this issue has finally started to receive mainstream attention. Over the past decade or so, it's been disturbing to discover how little value people place on their personal data and how freely they share so much of their personal details explicitly with large profit-making corporations - and by extension, with the security state. Here's hoping that people will start to think about how much information is being collected on them that they're not explicitly sharing.
