This forum has long been a repository of outrage, confusion, and dissapointment. It is high time that the anger expressed transform into something coherent and mobilized, and action be taken against corporate government who are actively trying to take control of our global mind (the internet) and quantify our private lives for who-knows-what (NSA revelations). Aaron Schwartz remains an avatar for this movement, and taught many of us that as hackers, we have a responsibility to society when freedom of information is tampered with, just as a doctor is responsible at the scene of a motor accident.
