Of course the foreign countries objecting to the NSA aren't going to make any commitments with regard to their own intelligence agencies and spying.

Re: Good to see
It's coming from a lot of different quarters though. Human rights courts in the EU are looking at Britain, there's congressman looking to reform legislation in the US, as well as states threatening to cut off power and water to the NSA headquarters unless they change their ways. 

And that's on top of all the public protesting.

Good to see
It's going to take a lot of effort to get serious reform of surveillance practices in the U.S., but it's good to see this effort gaining some steam.

Fade to Black
I wonder if protest organizers ever considered fading to black as they did for the SOPA protests, back in 2012. Remember, when Google, Mozilla, and a bunch of other websites blacked out their home pages or used their sites to warn about SOPA? Would that have sent a bigger warning than encouraging people to contact their lawmakers? Or were they looking to rouse users into getting more involved (a good thing, IMHO).

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
