“The new Darpa program is called Brandeis, a nod to the guiding principle of the research initiative. Louis Brandeis, a progressive lawyer who became a Supreme Court justice, was the co-author with Samuel D. Warren of an influential essay, “The Right to Privacy.” Published in Harvard Law Review in 1890, it forcefully made the case that safeguarding privacy was essential to individual freedom.”
Apparently we’ve learned some things from the edward Snowden revelations and the Pentagon is putting a public face on its efforts to understand and practice the need for personal privacy.
Chalk one up for the Constitution.
