privacy and eff

I’ve written a little bit previously about privacy – here, here and here –and it’s safe to say a lot of my fun reading and learning seems to centre around issues of internet privacy and security.

Edward Snowden said that, “When you say I don’t care about the right to privacy because I have nothing to hide, that is no different than saying I don’t care about freedom of speech because I have nothing to say or freedom of the press because I have nothing to write.”[1]

The advocacy and education work of the Electronic Frontier Foundation – “the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world”[2] – is vital. Although its focus is the US, the materials, ideas, news, and software it provides are important around the world.
