Tech Industry Resists Surveillance Requests

It is the post-Snowden age. A time when one individual, willing to speak up against what he considered illegal, sweeping government surveillance, changed the way we all think about tech. The current fight between US law officials and US tech companies is over data. Yours, and mine. Who can have access to it and how reasonable is it for us to expect it to be, well, private. 

In the balance hang a lot of things. For one, democracy (and this is not a stretch). For another business. The decision as to whether we should trust large tech companies, or US-based tech businesses or servers that are in the US or government requests for access to data. 

The story is still unfolding and the tendrils of the law of unintended consequences are long and thin and reaching out in all directions. Dive in: http://goo.gl/YkGIIC.
