We’re currently running a fundraiser for 1985, peer-to-peer phone call encryption that will prevent NSA spying on your “metadata.” Please take a look, share with your friends, and donate if you can!

So the NSA has collected information on you, eh? Assembled some records have they? Excellent, now their records are subject to Freedom of Information Act requests (for records in general held by a government agency) as well as Privacy Act requests (for records relating specifically to the requestor). I’ve started a new site to make the process quick and pain free — please check out: My NSA Records.

Will the government respond? Probably not, or if they do, probably to tell you to f’ off. But picture the FOIA department at the NSA sitting with a desk full of thousands upon thousands of FOIA request. Now *there’s* a protest.
