I think it goes without saying that I'm new here (I already read the FAQ, and FAQ: Welcome to New Users).
Currently I'm interested in collecting hard evidence on Internet Privacy; how it is under surveillance today; what pros and cons are of letting this be gradually applied over time, and only stopped when bigger steps are taken; who (or which companies) are in favour/pushing this to happen; and more.
I'm motivated to do this because I have experienced that many of my friends and people I have seen on the Internet seem to ignore this issue. With the small amount of research I've done, I'm already convinced that the majority would be against this if awareness was spread properly. In order to do this I think there's a need to collect hard facts on how this affects/will affect the individual citizen. Also just to see if it turns out that there's no real issue.
I was pointed here when asking about this on MetaSO, but I'm not entirely sure my entire purpose fits under the nature of this site. Note that I'm not interested in speculating/predicting the future. I'm only interested in facts, and then leave it up to people to form their own opinion.
Any suggestions of how I should go about this?
