NSA Prism: Why I'm boycotting US cloud tech - and you should too

Opinion So, America's National Security Agency has been tapping up US
internet giants to gather information about foreigners online,
allegedly sharing that data with Britain's GCHQ - and gobbling up
details about US citizens' phone calls.

When I was a kid my world was full of pro-America propaganda; I never
once questioned American exceptionalism and I cheered for the "good
guys" in red, white and blue.

Somewhere along the way I became disillusioned with the US, but I'd
always figured that a vague sense of unease and a few ethical qualms
were as far as that disgruntlement would ever go.
