Big Brother Goes To Washington

from the looking-over-your-shoulder dept

Newsweek is running an interview with someone from EPIC (Electronic Privacy Information Center) about what the new Homeland Security Act might mean for the rights of anyone who surfs the internet. The quotes are the standard scary quotes about the government being able to know everything you do online – and not having to tell you they know what they know. However, they also say that there has been a lot of outrage about the bill, and EPIC is hoping to convince politicians that it’s in their best interest not to let this happen.
