Well, all of us already knew so I don't think it has surprised anyone... but I'd like to know opinions of TED community, are you comfortable with fact that USA Gov. is continuously collecting your personal data?

Closing Statement from Kareem Fahim

Majority of people are annoyed by this 'data collection'. Western Govs., defenders of 'freedom' 'democracy' and 'input_word' are mere bunch of hypocrites. Although it is shocking how some people are defending NSA and these faceless entities... (maybe they are 'trolls' or NSA paid users...).

  • Jun 12 2013: It is very much terrifying what that whistle blower did and I think it is very much problematic for celebrities like top people and a gift for hackers who can easily access to these and i don't think PRISM will look after the present crisis [cyber war] because as the recent statement provided by the whistle bowler is how much data that you protect is of NO use and we can deploy your data by just inserting a BUG into your Machine.Hope that this problem with be rectified soon enough before the damage is done!!!!!!Good[protection of data] always win against Evil[Hackers].
