Hi Mariette and Liberationtech,
The Second Amendment issue that comes to my mind is that encryption has
been discussed (including in the '90s crypto wars) as a munition. I
don't think we want to claim that numbers and equations are munitions,
necessarily, but if encryption is banned, someone (for good or ill)
might try a Second Amendment argument.
Also, this isn't exactly what you're asking, but if your work includes a
significant #OpBart angle, you should talk with Justin Beck (@pixplz on
Twitter; http://about.me/pixplz ), a journalism teacher who played an
important role in #OpBART. There's also this interview:
one of the organizers.
