Re: Censorship
I feel like no matter how much people try to circumvent being monitored, it is inevitable that "Big Brother" is always watching, listening, or monitoring in some way, shape, or form.

Re: Censorship
Snowden event made people be aware of and sensitive to information security. Privacy tracking is anyway a possible source of information leakage but I am not sure how much Snowden event and Prisma will change people's search behavior in the long run. Are we going to turn to other no privacy tracking search engines?

Re: Censorship
I wonder how much users are circumventing Google and using more private forms of search. It has been made clear via news reports that the government is now targeting users who frequent the anonymizing service Tor, but how many people are now using search engines like DuckDuckGo? They have a no-tracking privacy policy in place.

Censorship
If a government wants to censor its citizens in a developing economy, then walls will be built around the internet, if the same is tried in a developed economy, then I2p type networks will spring up faster than the walls ability to keep up. Or the citizens could be made to censor themselves -- it works.
