Conversations about life & privacy in the digital age

Privacy Roundup – 3rd Edition

Today we bring you another edition of our ‘Privacy Roundup’. I would enjoy reporting that our online privacy is moving toward a better place but as you will read below – this is not the case. Unfortunately it seems as though our civil liberties have to be violated before we take notice. However, it is not all doom-and-gloom and positive strides are being made day in and day out by folks who don’t just care about their own privacy but yours as well.

So with no further ado, I present the following articles and posts surrounding the ever-peering online world in which we live:
