Google (et al.) and Government Surveillance

Ars Technica reports here on the “provocative claim that Google is currently cooperating with secret elements in the US government, including the CIA.”  This is a possibility I blogged about here a couple of weeks ago.

It’s something people should be concerned about, and people’s concern is something Google should be concerned about.  

People averse to the risk of exposing their online activities to government surveillance should take Google’s studious silence as confirmation.
