Re: <nettime> dark days

Why is that so sad, not about cleverness, surely it is just that some people have been realistic from early on. Since the 90s I've certainly assumed Microsoft was in the collaboration and spying business and so did various European governments, I seem to remember a lot of discussion about only using open source software in government rather than Windows etc.

GeziPark, PRISM, ERT shutdown come all as a shock.

Some of the saddest specialist responses to PRISM that I've read argue that it isn't a shock and that clever people knew this sort of thing was going on anyway.
