Tech Giants Demand More NSA Transparency

It is a group of over 63 companies and they have signed a petition. They have beseeched the government to make its surveillance activities more transparent. Among these companies are included such giants as Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Google. They have in a letter made it perfectly clear that the government will have to mend its ways or face their boycott.

They called upon President Obama to let the Internet companies offer more information to users regarding government requests for private data. The group has investors and trade groups in its purview as reported by AllThingsD. The very basic facts regarding governmental activities must attain a certain amount of clarity before the public. Freedom of information is a vital need of the day.

The letter to Obama is the first such all-out effort by the group to make its position clear vis-à-vis the government. The allegations they have faced have really stung their ego and turned the public against them. The government started it all. By the way, the companies have not asked for a stop to any snooping around by the government.

Rather they have asked for greater accountability. The tech firms along with the government have been undergoing a re-evaluation ever since Edward Snowden leaked valuable information revealing how PRISM abused its rights to supervise online activities. This letter is a sincere attempt by them to clear their names from the roster of culprits that have come on the scene.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
