Many thanks to the NYTimes, the Guardian, WaPo, ProPublica, and everyone else who is helping to move the ball down the field.

Some recent coverage and comments:

–The Guardian calls on private engineers to “take back the Internet.” Can that even be done?

ProPublica and the Times drop the latest bomb from Edward Snowden.

–A physicist serving in the House (how often do you get to type a phrase like that?) proposes a bill to ban the practice.

–Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper turns media critic, telling us that all these revelations are “not news.” (Nothing to see here. Move along, folks.)
