Nice recap of what's happened since Snowden's first leak.
And the top 5 things that have happened as a result of the whistleblowing.

An informative read.
Here at DOBT we talk a lot about How To Fix Procurement, but you don’t hear a lot about why things go wrong. The Healthcare.gov Fiasco is instructive in that it highlights every piece of our procurement process that’s broken. How, with a half-trillion dollar a year spend, could something like this botch even happen? Here’s how: A High-Friction, High-Overhead contracting process The contract for Healthcare.gov wasn’t a fully competitive proce...

Ironic, at the least, that when the NRA suggested armed guards in public schools the uproar against their proposal was deafening. Though now doesn't seem like such a bad idea to the President. A difference though. The NRA's proposal wouldn't have cost any tax dollars and would have provided wider coverage.
Washington (CNN) -- Nine months after the Sandy Hook school shooting tragedy, President Barack Obama is putting millions of dollars into funding armed police officers in schools across the country, an idea not too far removed...

Trust the government to secure all my accounts with at single sign on. Oh, and it won't be optional. There's no way this could go wrong.

This is sad.

With all the posturing Google has done over the NSA stuff, and having encouraged people to sign the petition to require a warrant for email snooping (which I heartily agree with), this just makes Google look hypocritical.

This is a fun interactive infographic.
Covert action. Surveillance. Counterintelligence. The U.S. “black budget” spans over a dozen agencies that make up the National Intelligence Program.

Seems the author tends to agree +Linus Torvalds  is being too harsh. Here's a copy of my response:

Has anyone here read "Just for Fun"? In there he makes clear that the development on the Linux kernel is for him, not for the community. It just so happens that the community uses his personal repository as the fountain of truth. Anyone is free to fork it and take it elsewhere.

So first, he can treat people however he wants. He's not stepping on your lawn, you're stepping on his. And by his, remember it's his personal repository.

Second, he doesn't yell that way at just anyone. It's usually only at developers that he has a history with that should have known better.

Personally, I get a good laugh from it all. But if I screwed up the way some of the maintainers have, I wouldn't expect anything less than a public flogging. Development here is built on trust, not business hierarchy, and when you commit bad code you violate that trust. At that point it is personal.
"My culture is cursing": Linux kernel world is a hostile place—by design.
