  1. Hey Alan,
  2. Hey Chris,

  5. First of all: Thank you very much for the awesome content you guys keep delivering week after week after week. You guys are on a roll.

  7. I decided to write you after I have been following the news here in Germany and have been listening to unfilter and techsnap for quite a while now.
  8. It is hard to put my frustration all in one email. What I find hard with the recent news evolving around online privacy in general and prism in particular is the balance of keeping my head cool and loosing my temper in a burst of anger about all this intrusion into peoples privacy. I am convinced that only direct action from the people can bring change here. Let's take this matter to the streets and protest against it. Let's keep on writing to the representatives and asking questions. Let us inconvenience the very people which screw with our rights to remain anonymous and discus matters without the almighty state listening in on everything.

  10. Anyhow, I have a technical question concerning internet filtering a la prism:
  11. Since the NSA seems to have a master plan of massively collecting information and then filtering it according to patterns matching terrorist activities or whatever funky patterns.....I was wondering if and how we could put their abilities to do so to the test? What if people worldwide in a concerted and sane manner send emails, did phone calls and in general behaved on the net as to provoke being falsely flagged by the NSA in such massive quantities that the whole system becomes an absolute mess? I am not saying this is the only way we should respond to the recent news. But do you guys think that this could potentially work to screw with their system? How could we pull off something like this?
  12.  
  13. I am eager to hear your thoughts on this.
  14.  
  15. Cheers from Germany,
  16. Tim
