About this website
This parody website has no connection whatsoever to the National Security Agency.
The "Domestic Surveillance Directorate" is a fictitious entity I created in October 2012 to raise awareness of important privacy issues. I'm not an expert in this subject matter nor am I associated with any privacy group.
The sidebars on each page of this site contain related links from government websites, news media, and privacy groups. Today's technology provides the opportunity for the creation of a massive
surveillance apparatus that, if left unchecked, could have a permanent impact on our privacy. Continual advances in processing power and storage technology over time could make
something like a "Domestic Surveillance Directorate" economically feasible under the right circumstances.
Shortly after his inauguration in 2009, President Obama issued a memo declaring his
commitment to an "unprecedented level of openness in Government". He wrote: "Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing."
This website is my attempt to apply that unprecedented level of openness to a subject matter that is anything but.
