Personal Privacy Is Only One of the Costs of NSA Surveillance | Threat Level | WIRED
The Foundation’s report, released today, outlines some of the collateral damage of NSA surveillance in several areas, including: Economic losses to US businesses due to lost sales and declining customer trust. The deterioration of internet security as a result of the NSA stockpiling zero-day vulnerabilities, undermining encryption and installing backdoors in software and hardware products. Undermining the government’s credibility and leadership on “internet freedom” and governance issues such as censorship. -->> its like trade sanctions - but on the internet among other things. +++

There's A Full-On Cyber War On Facebook - Business Insider
"Success Invites - #" - "Running a business on FB is like opening a McDonald's on an active volcano" - Fyk, 40, is a self-made millionaire who’s built his fortune almost entirely on Facebook. It’s a rewarding business but not without its challenges. Not only must he play a constant game of cat and mouse with hackers and digital thieves but he must do so on a field of battle that is constantly shifting because of Facebook’s habit of routinely — and mysteriously — tweaking its algorithm. “It’s legitimately a cyber war,” said Fyk, who describes his archenemies as tech-savvy teens who are motivated by boredom. “I make almost a quarter-million dollars a month, so I have to protect what I’m doing. That means if I have to play their kiddie game, I play. I don’t have a choice.”

Oppose Cispa if you value any privacy in our digital world | Dan Gillmor | Comment is free |
Companies have new rights to monitor user actions and share data – including potentially sensitive user data – with the government without a warrant. [...] It's up to all of us to say, "We're not going to sacrifice all of our liberties for the illusion of safety." If you value any semblance of privacy in our increasingly digital world, call your House member's office. >> "[...] CISPA has a broad and alarming reach that goes far beyond Internet security. >> " immunity is worth alot of money to the companies. they'd rather have legal immunity than take a stand on protecting your privacy."
