Recent revelations about the NSA spying on everyone has caused many people from the tech community reconsider the state of the information security. I have spent time over the past months discussing and thinking about this with many people and I want to offer my thoughts on the subject.
There are already many reports about the NSA's actions and about the implications of PRISM. Therefore I will refrain from doing the same here. Instead, I want to focus on the people who are involved (which happens to be everyone).
