Author David Brin recently updated his essay Why Transparency will Save Privacy.  Jay and David discuss the implications of recent revelations of US government surveillance activities.

Hugo, Nebula, Campbell and ALA award winning David Brin is also the author of the remarkably prescient The Transparent Society.   Awarded the ALA Freedom of  Speech award, in this book he argues that technological innovation makes surveillance impossible to stop, but that the ultimate response by civil libertarians is to turn the camera around, and make the activities of powerful public and private organizations more transparent.
