"Green party politician Malte Spitz sued to have German telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom hand over six months of his phone data that he then made available to ZEIT ONLINE. We combined this geolocation data with information relating to his life as a politician, such as Twitter feeds, blog entries and websites, all of which is all freely available on the internet.

You don't have to be NSA to access the types of data/meta data necessary to accurately construct someones pattern of life. Its a reality of most peoples' lives today.

Exactly. Much of what the NSA does, commercial businesses do as well, and have been for quite some time. No one makes much hay about it. I'm not saying that I support the government doing as much, just pointing out a reality of the world we now find ourselves living in.

"The Bill of Rights is all about constraining the power of the government to encroach on our freedoms, (subpoena, warrants, etc.) that private institutions dont have but it was granted those powers in exchange for that authority being properly constrained. When such constraints are removed, our liberties are inevitably restricted"
