Sounds nice, but for all we know, there was a govt. goon standing next to you with a gun pointed at your head when you wrote that.   Or a government bureaucrat threatening to withdraw a multi-million dollar government contract.  For that matter, we don't even know that it was Larry Page who wrote this.  

In short, I am not willing to accept this at face value.  I believe Google most likely are part of PRISM, along with MS, Yahoo and all the others.

Absolutely true.  But I think when you weigh the evidence, on balance, it comes down suggesting that PRISM at least exists.  If nothing else, the fact that the govt. didn't deny it suggest that it's real.   So, given that we already know the govt. compels firms to comply with secret requests under gag order (see: NSL), why would we believe any public statements from Google, et al. about this?

10 more titles to add to the "essentials reading list" for IT leaders.  For the #CIO , #CTO , #IT  Director, or other IT leader who wants to move beyond being thought of as "just a technologist" and become a respected business leader and strategist, these titles represent an essential foundation.

Our first "synchronized release" of the Fogcutter Suite features the 4th "tech preview release" of Neddick, our Open Source Information Discovery Platform, and the 1st public release of Quoddy, our Open Source Enterprise Social Network, and Hatteras, our Open Source Business Events Subscription Engine.
After what seems like an eternity of development work, we are proud to announce the first ever Fogcutter Synchronized Release - "418 Teapot". Named after the (in)famous Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol as a tribute to the amount of caffeine it took to get here, this synchronized release ...

I love this post from Fogbeam Labs. Here's a bit: So given that, what can we say about the eventual development of something we can call “The Star Trek Computer”? Right now, I'd say that we can say at least two things: It will be Open Source , and licensed under the Apache Software License v2.
