Invisibility in the Era of Surveillance

The Wikileaks dump yesterday raises a number of questions about privacy in the modern era of what some would call a surveillance state. Most specifically, The New Yorker examines 5 questions about the release. Coincidentally, at the same time, I’m working my way through Kevin Mitnick’s The Art of Invisibility: The World’s Most Famous Hacker Teaches You How to Be Safe in the Age of Big Brother and Big Data.

I’ll have a full review of Mitnick’s text by next Tuesday. By then, we should also know more about the latest effort from Wikileaks. In the meantime, tape over your webcams people!
