Do you want a hands-on lesson on staying clear of NSA snooping? If you live in the Washington, D.C., area, you're in for a treat. Later this month, you could be part of a seminar on how to keep your personal information private.
Strangely enough, the building just across from the NSA - the Washington, D.C., Public Library - will give it to you. Why would one government institution protect you from another?
For one thing, people need to know more about the Internet and their privacy instead of relying on news organizations to feed false information to them. Catherine Gees, a library associate, says it's not really that weird for the D.C. Library to be hosting something like this.
“Libraries have always been concerned about privacy rights. It seems like a natural place for this,” she said. “I just wish we were able to bring in more voices from the other side of the conversation.”
