Why Mass Surveillance Can't, Won't, And Never Has Stopped A Terrorist
“[T]here is no scientific rationale for believing that adding irrelevant data about innocent people makes it easier to find a terrorist attack, and lots of evidence that it does not.

Schneier on Security: Everyone Wants You To Have Security, But Not from Them
“Google collects all of your information to show you more targeted advertising. Surveillance is the business model of the Internet, and Google is one of the most successful companies at that. To claim that Google protects your privacy better than anyone else is to profoundly misunderstand why Google stores your data for free in the first place.” By Bruce Schneier
