– “i think this is the fundamental issue of the information society”

These were the closing words of Bruce Schneier in a talk he gave in February at the MIT. The talk can be found here on Youtube and i really encourage you to watch it. While it may have been around for a while it is still very prevailing. In general the talk is about the NSA and how they broke the internet for everyone and furthermore why it would even be in the NSAs interest to have a secure world wide web. He phrased everything way better than i probably ever could, so just check out the talk. I know it is a little bit long but stick with it, it is very informative and gets you thinking(and maybe a even a little sad).
