Do you want to know why the world feels a little smaller? Maybe it’s because all the forms of communications we’re starting to rely on (instant messaging software) is at the center of a wiretapping discussion.
You see, the government thinks it has a right to request access to certain people’s conversations. One such service, Skype, doesn’t agree. You can read about the case here and the compliance order here. (This act was passed two years ago, by the way….ohhh, hope you didn’t have any embarassing conversations.)
However, you can wake up and start realizing that there’s no such thing as a private conversation anymore (well, unless you’re on Skype) right about….now.
