Big Brother Is Listening

An interesting article from the Atlantic re: NSA, FISA, and all sorts of stuff you don't want to know about.

For instance-
The NSA maintains a very close and very confidential relationship with key executives in the telecommunications industry through their membership on the NSA's advisory board. Created shortly after the agency's formation, the board was intended to pull together a panel of science wizards from universities, corporate research labs, and think tanks to advise the agency. They keep the agency abreast of the industry's plans and give NSA engineers a critical head start in finding ways to penetrate technologies still in the development phase.
