When I first read about this I was astonished that the FBI apparently does not yet have access to most Internet communication. Then I realized that the "problem" is that it is still a bit too complicated for doing automatic large-scale interception of communication. Also, in the longer run, such an initiative raises the question what to do with open source software. Either software with cryptography functionality will have to be forbidden or people will have to disclose their keys.
So much for the internet, we will just have to go back to old fashioned 'brush passes' and dead drops - the FBI will be so busy trying to uderstand G+ posts and email to granny that they won't have anyone to follow and intercept - lol.
A quote from the article, apparently missing the inherent irony: “If you create a service, product, or app that allows a user to communicate, you get the privilege of adding that extra coding,” [Emphasis mine]
And as a separate comment, I would point people to The Road to Serfdom, by Frederich Hayek. There's a cartoon version, and a Reader's Digest version, heck, there's probably even an interpretive dance version.
