This evening I started to look at the suggestions from PRISM-break: various open-source and private alternatives to mainstream services (email, browsing, searching, cloud storage, and so on). The language they used struck me though: it’s all geared for the needs of those involved in activism, mostly. And I’m so terribly staid, and, well, normal. Happily so, but consequently I feel as though I’d be acting a bit of a plonker to avail myself of such services.
Then again, perhaps the more of us that do, the more of a statement is made about what we see as the worth of privacy and freedom.
So maybe I’ll have another look.
