This is an invaluable site for teaching issues of privacy and security. I intend to use some of this material at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I like the range of resources and opinions.  I have already recommended it to a student in Social Justice (undergrad) who is researching the Patriot Act.  I only wish the updates were more specifically marked.  Much has changed since 2003.

Technical Remarks:

Broken links:

P. 3 Propaganda Remix Project link broken

P. 4 FBI Carnivore broken

Time spent reviewing site: 50 minutes

This seems like it would be very helpful in the history classroom.  It gives an in depth analysis of what the class will be doing for that particular class period.
