[liberationtech] NYT: Obama’s German Storm

Hi,

it's not the first time I hear or read this from Americans: Many people already gave up discussions about data protection a long time ago. So there seems a lot of hope that Europeans and especially the Germans with their learnings from history of surveillance and strong view on privacy can help fix "Americas lost balance". But to be true: I actually don't think that our stupid politicians are really the right people for this (and I also think that the US administration give a f*** what Europeans think or demand). 

Still, if the pressure will last longer than the usual couple of days, there is a real change to get some interesting regulations on EU level that could badly influence US internet businesses in Europe - for good in terms of better general data protection for all of us.
