Yup, Electronic Frontier is constantly sending me emails about this.

I love EFF! 

 

When the whole Prism thing broke, I watched it closely, and I was one of the first people to cover Snowden in general.

 

Elements of what he said stuck out to me, like about how metadata could reveal things like marital fidelity, and also near-future stuff like metadata being used in situations like selecting recipients of organs on transplant lists. It's a really difficult issue to grasp fully, but I've always hated equating privacy with what one chooses to disclose on the internet versus what Snowden called your "pattern of life."
