People of interest

"Burglars Who Took On F.B.I. Abandon Shadows"  We've lost sight amongst the traitors and the psychos and the murderers and the pervs, but this is what real heroes look like.

Short history in a list of American government mass surveillance programs from the CBS procedural 'Person of Interest'.  The current state of mass surveillance is the result of decades of cumulative steps to gather more and more information.  Each step was unopposed (the Church Committee was the only hitch), so the psycho pervs just kept going until they got everything.

"7 Things You Missed If You Didn't Read Wired's Big Story On How The NSA Is Killing The Internet"  Nathan should stick to writing cookbooks.

"The WikiLeaks Mole"  Julian's unbroken record of picking unsuitable friends.  Note that this is largely another attack on Assange based on information from those who have betrayed him.

An amazing tale of conspiratorial archive destruction to protect the North Carolina gentry (via Reddit).
