I haven’t yet weighted on the US’ secret-ish pervasive surveillance operation as to me it seems pretty obvious and not-news. I don’t have a definite opinion on the value of privacy (or conversely, on the value of transparency), but the fact that well-funded government agencies read the same data Google and Facebook examine because their business model depends on it doesn’t seem like a surprise at all. PRISM to me is the very definition of cloud computing. Private companies might seem more trustworthy than secret services (and only if we believe they are more accountable), but a discussion about mere degrees of trust just shows how complacent we are about data privacy.
I really like National Geographic’s Found (I got the URL first, ha) for a daily dose of retro/archival photography. Here’s one of a balloon vendor running across a road with a trailing mass of balloons, taken 1921 in Buenos Aires by Newton W. Gulick.
