Notes from the Electronic Cottage 11/23/17

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

There are lots of things in the digital world to be grateful for so today we offer a few.
And not to put a pallor over those good things, there is one that is not so good that we need to pay attention to right now: Congress’s proposed renewal of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Here are links to some background materials for those who are interested. Review them, form an opinion, and let your congress people know what you think – right away.
