After 30 Years of Silence, the Original NSA Whistleblower Looks Back | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
He did not trust journalists. "If you go back to the Church Committee, you'll find that many, many of your colleagues worked for the intelligence agencies," he told me over the phone. He spoke deliberately, in a warm, authoritative-sounding Midwestern baritone, like a documentary narrator. "I believe that you're honest, but who knows about the people in your office? Who knows about your boss, what kind of deals he's doing?"

Americans’ Privacy Strategies Post-Snowden

Americans’ Privacy Strategies Post-Snowden | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

Nearly two years after Snowden's revelations, 87% of Americans say they have heard about U.S. surveillance programs. 

BeerBergman's insight:

For the records. And maybe to debate. Excerpt.

***

"Many have not considered or are not aware of some of the more commonly available tools that could make their communications and activities more private

One potential reason some have not changed their behaviors is that 54% believe it would be “somewhat” or “very” difficult to find tools and strategies that would help them be more private online and in using their cell phones.

The Snowden Effect, Quantified | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
39 percent of Germany’s 94 percent awareness figure implies that more than 36 percent of online Germans are taking greater pains to protect their security. Various statistics put German Internet penetration at at least 70 percent (CIA data implies a greater than 80 percent rate, but, again, let’s be conservative). Germany has around 81 million citizens.

So, in a single country, the Snowden effect is that at least 20 million people are trying to be safer and more private online.
