Use Decentralized Cloud Storage to Keep the NSA from Tracking You

Use Decentralized Cloud Storage to Keep the NSA from Tracking You | Cloud Computing | Scoop.it
There has been much talk about how unsecure the cloud is because of PRISM’s newfound ability to demand all of your data without any resistance. This has spin doctors in the Cloud Storage industry losing their mind.
Glenn Mackay's insight:

I really don't think that using the decentralized cloud storage can save you from NSA's new survelliance program known as "PRISM". I believe that if U.S. government decide to access someone's data, then you can't do anything to stop them, not even your cloud storage service provider even if you use decentralized cloud storage services. The authorities of the acts such as Patriot Act, PRISM are given full rights to access any data from any provider which comes under the U.S. teritory or ACT.

 

However, people don't need to worry as the NSA will not access your data unless you are involved in illegal or the activities that are against U.S. interest.
