Every single IT guy, every single manager …

I’m sure that this point has been made somewhere or other in the general debate on email spying and the NSA/Snowden revelations, but in my opinion not often enough or forcefully enough. People who want to dismiss the whole thing as “no big deal” are, ... [Published Crooked Timber - Sep 23 2014]
