Reactions to Mashable’s Digital Bill of Rights

Inspired by the NSA ordeal, Mashable’s collaborative Google Doc lists the digital freedoms and protections for Internet users.

Mashable:

When Edward Snowden leaked information about the U.S. government’s widespread mass surveillance programs, we learned just how vulnerable our personal information might be. We’re living in an era where digital boundaries don’t exist and governments can gain extensive access to user data without our knowledge.

In the face of these revelations, this is the moment when we must stand up and establish a Digital Bill of Rights.

We’re creating a document to highlight the digital freedoms and protections that we feel each user should be guaranteed as a citizen of the Internet, and we want your help. Below is a draft of the Digital Bill of Rights that we have crowdsourced through our social media community.

Readers can contribute suggestions directly on the document. The initiative garnered quite a few thought-provoking comments, like the ones above, which have been curated by Mashable here.
