opening statement

This blog will be mostly about IT security and distributed data issues. And what better time to start when NSA pervasive monitoring of people on the web is getting some public attention. NSA’s activities has been well-known in the IT security industry for many years and broadly taken as a given; only with PRISM has the press more generally given this activity some attention.

However, the ethics and politics of government surveillance of individuals will not be a major focus in this blog. Though there may be som incidental connection when it comes to technical details: Businesses commercial and architectural decisions for their IT infrastructure may have some bearing on 3rd parties ability to conduct surveillance more generally.

Some posts will be quite high-level and some very low-level. Occasionally there will be nitty-gritty implementation details. Other times more general exploratory posts concerning business and technical practices.
