    about the NSA is they weren't paying attention.

    At all.  For years.

    Outraged is one thing--upset is another.  It's entirely proper to be upset that the government is doing the same thing that businesses have been doing as long as datamining has been possible.

    I think this is an opportunity to demand safeguards be put in place to protect the public from improper use of the information we (often willingly) put out there.  We don't know who's going to be President next, but there's a chance the person won't be as ethically clear or nuanced as this one.
