You know who might save the newspaper business? Edward Snowden. His leaks are being consistently doled out as major front page stories. In the latest chapter, we learn that the NSA (along with its British counterpart) has secretly broken into the links that connect Yahoo and Google data centers. “By tapping those links, the agency has positioned itself to collect at will from among hundreds of millions of user accounts, many of them belonging to Americans. The NSA does not keep everything it collects, but it keeps a lot.”

+ The Snowden leaks have created a narrative that is at once geopolitical and deeply personal. The New Republic’s Judith Shulevitz explains why you shouldn’t spy on your kids — even though you can: Big Mother is Watching You.

+ According to a recent survey, young people are a lot less concerned about privacy. But they are far more likely to employ tactics to keep their personal information private.
