Deflating Cloud Storage

The NSA's fuckery has taken the steam out of the move towards cloud storage of data.

Like this wasn't foreseeable.

Personally, I don't think it much matters what reforms are put in place, for I don't believe that the American Stasi NSA will give a rat's ass. They'll whatever the fuck they feel like doing, which is what they've been doing from Day One. All the so-called reforms will do is persuade most people to go watch another squirrel while the NSA gets back to work spying on everyone.

I feel like they will be completely involved in any privacy software that can ever be written from now on, as well as having access to every lens manufactured in this any many other countries.

Nangleator, I can assure you that the NSA is *not* going to be involved in the writing of privacy software. I know many of the people in that industry. None of them are in the pockets of the NSA, though all are on the radar screens of the NSA (and take appropriate counter measures accordingly).

I can assure you that the NSA has NOT had any involvement in any of the privacy software that I myself have written. Though I must admit to being creeped out when a helpful person from the NSA called and let me know some nuances of export control that might not have been obvious...
