Why Google won’t protect you from big brother: Christopher Soghoian

"We are spied on because [these companies] help."

Our data is not our own, says researcher Christopher Soghoian. In the US alone, government agencies request data on hundreds of thousands of users every year — from companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter — and most of these businesses are more than happy to oblige. In this talk, Christopher explains why this is problematic. (Filmed at TEDxSanJoseCA)
