There’s such massive shockwaves following Edward Snowden leaks, we don’t have enough time to keep up with all the angles ( much less add our own commentary),  but at the very least we’ll grab a few highlights as they fly by…

So what happens when empire is caught with its fingers in EVERYONE’s cookie jar ?! These are wild times …. Pay very close attention:

More Greenwald Updates … ( i.e. European leaders reacting )

Robert Scheer’s  One American Who Isn’t For Sale

The Massive Online Surveillance Program No One Is Talking About ( the Blarney program )

World leaders seek answers on US collection of communication data

Brian Holmes’ From The Margins To The Center

ACTIONS/DEMANDS :

86 Civil Liberties Groups and Internet Companies Demand an End to NSA Spying (via EFF )

Media Self-defense ( protecting your privacy ):

NSA surveillance: is it possible to exist online without casting a digital shadow? ( good list of resources )

Prism-Break ( interesting, not yet researched )

Oddities:

Obama Is Checking Your Email

Scene from Good Will Hunting: Why Shouldn’t I Work For The NSA?

And if you’re just tuning in, or want to catch more additions to the Memes section in Data Meltdown v.1 … These are low-level ( + low-risk ) information tools that everyone can feel comfortable about spreading. We hardly recommend remaining in your comfort zones in these volatile times, but these help get the average citizens ( non-activated ) reading into and understanding more about why these are such crucial issues for … keeping democracies alive … and safely navigating the “data world meltdown” ! And one might call them good counter-propaganda to keep our  autonomous brains on high alert !

And we’d like to recommend following Seismologik Intelligence – on the fedbook or website ( tho that’s just a pic depository ) . They point to a bucketload of serious anlaysis… without losing a sense of humor. Plus they’re simultaneously keeping a good flow of news from the situations in Turkey, where the shit’s hitting the fan AGAIN.

ok, on the run… back to Other work… more later…
