ACLU Sets “Surveillance Clock”

The ACLU launched the “Surveillance Society Clock” to symbolize how we are fast approaching a surveillance society in the United States. The clock is set at six minutes before the “midnight” of such a dark end to privacy:

The reality is we are fast approaching a genuine surveillance society in the United States – a dark future where our every move, our every transaction, our every communication is recorded, compiled, and stored away, ready to be examined and used against us by the authorities whenever they want. The ACLU has created this Surveillance Clock to symbolize just how close we are to a “midnight” of a genuine surveillance society. But it’s not too late – there is still time to save our privacy.

Also being released is a new report summarizing their view of the state of privacy today. More at http://www.aclu.org/clock.
