NSA-GCHQ Tribunal Case[edit]

I have added the above section to Privacy International. This case doubtless bears watching. kencf0618 (talk) 19:23, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Lots of new content at privacy[edit]

At the privacy article I just added a lot of content. If anyone has comments on what I have done please share at Talk:Privacy#Outline_of_this_article_and_Solove.27s_Understanding_Privacy. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 01:31, 1 March 2015 (UTC)


I no longer edit in this article space, but we need a new article on DAPINO GAMMA. --Dr. Fleischman (talk) 17:28, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Request for discussion on proposed merge[edit]

I have proposed that Five Eyes be merged into UKUSA Agreement. I am willing to work on the merge myself, but I am still unsure if it is necessary, as no one has made a statement at the relevant talk page. If anyone has any thoughts, the discussion is at Talk:UKUSA Agreement#Proposed merge. Thanks, Gluons12 talk 21:18, 15 June 2016 (UTC).

Added some articles[edit]

I just added web beacon to this WikiProject and listed it as "top" importance. Including this one, there are 7 top importance articles in this project.

I thought web beacon should be a priority because it is the tool or concept by means of organizations during surveillance seek to get information about the activities of all Internet users. All Internet users have been the subject of mass surveillance through web beacons.

I know this project is still waiting to happen, but when it does, I think the top-level concepts describing the tools of surveillance are fair proposals for top priority. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:24, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Well I'm still here. Not really my are but let me know if there's anything I can do. -Indy beetle (talk) 00:42, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
@Bluerasberry: Thank you for adding it but I very much oppose the "top" priority rating and changed it to mid: only articles that are about very high-level topics of mass surveillance should get that priority set. Specific tools for specific types of mass surveillance should not get this priority. Btw you might be interested in the new surveillance capitalism article (which is a better, more high-level candidate for the 'top' priority; it currently has 'high' set). --Fixuture (talk) 21:04, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
