Today Is Reset The Net / Take Our Internet Back


As you know, the Federal Government is spying on us the internet users, and it’s wrong!  The government and the NSA are tapping internet service providers intentionally and secretly weakening encryption products.  They are collecting everything from phone calls, photos, and internet traffic sent over the internet by US citizens.  Nothing is off limits!  Today, June 5th is being called Reset The Net, and it’s simple.  We need to make our internet connections stronger so the spying will stop!

The government is doing nothing from protecting citizens from unchecked government surveillance.  And today, many companies, including WordPress who is the provider of Geek Alabama, are urging everyone to make their internet connections stronger, by pledging to add SSL, HSTS & PFS to their internet connections.  And for mobile users, pledging to add SSL & cert pinning to make their connections safer.  One great way to get started, is by learning more about The Privacy Pack, learn more at:  

Edward Snowden is a huge supporter of Reset The Net, he said: “Today, we can begin the work of effectively shutting down the collection of our online communications, even if the US Congress fails to do the same. That’s why I’m asking you to join me on June 5th for Reset the Net, when people and companies all over the world will come together to implement the technological solutions that can put an end to the mass surveillance programs of any government. This is the beginning of a moment where we the people begin to protect our universal human rights with the laws of nature rather than the laws of nations.

We have the technology, and adopting encryption is the first effective step that everyone can take to end mass surveillance. That’s why I am excited for Reset the Net — it will mark the moment when we turn political expression into practical action, and protect ourselves on a large scale.”

We need real reform to end mass surveillance and make our internet safer!  To learn more about Reset The Net and sign a pledge, go to:
