[liberationtech] Internet privacy provider

Well, there's managing expectations, and there's also outright lies, like
saying you won't sell information and then charging admin fees for
compiling it for law enforcement requests even when they don't present
warrants, as AT&T has for cell phone data according to the ACLU.

So do you want to go for someone with an ACLU lifetime achievement award
for resisting and fighting a National Security Letter in his 30s as a John
Doe, with good intentions (with all the possible limitations thereon) ---
or go with, you know, AT&T?  Or Google?  Or...  hmmm...  Dunno, what's a
better alternative.

What's a better test of the system here, possibly as much to the point?

I think it's worth getting behind the effort and seeing what's possible
which is why I joined Nick's advisory. ;)  But if you know my history I
have a weak spot for David and Goliath situations.  Most of us do.  It's
the business of most of us on the list.

Either doing that work, or sniping at it (either bitterly or to improve the
breed or both).

Carry on! :)
