“Conversation is not the same thing as correspondence. Words
uttered in haste over morning coffee, whether spoken in a coffee
shop or thumbed on a BlackBerry, are not official correspondence.
A data pattern indicating “terrorist tendencies” is no substitute
for a real investigation. Being constantly scrutinized
undermines our social norms; furthermore, it’s creepy. Privacy
isn’t just about having something to hide; it’s a basic right
that has enormous value to democracy, liberty, and our humanity.”
 
– Bruce Schneier
