The current state of privacy is bad. Surveillance today is pervasive, and the effects of this surveillance on the fabric of society is profound. We need to make sure we’re fully aware of the consequences of creating a world without privacy.

If we want to reclaim privacy in the digital age, the answer is not to throw out our devices, it’s to truly embrace technology, and leverage all the new, cutting edge privacy and encryption technologies being developed every day.

We are empowered human beings. And many of us aren’t just passive enjoyers of technology — we have a say in the direction that this technology will take, and are helping write its future. It’s in our power to make sure that the future we create is the best possible timeline, not the worst.

So let’s be intentional about the kind of future we want.
