Hi Anders,

I'm a swedish freelance reporter. Presently, I'm doing research for an  
article about how surveillance changes the behavior of the citizens.  
What my editor want my story to answer is essence one question, but a  
large one: "How does mass-surveillance like what's exposed by Edward  
Snowden change how people use the Internet?"  

Finding theoretical discussions isn't hard. What I'm trying to find is  
recent research that is based on real-life observations (or similar) how  
this actually happens. The PEN America's report is one good example[1],  
but I would also like to have research based on a wider demography, not  
well known authors and journalists.  

I understand that there hasn't gone long enough to do actual studies  
based on what has happened since Snowden's leaks, so what I'm looking  
for is studies that look into other kinds of online surveillance.  

I'm thankful for any pointers.
