Exercise: Think about a time when you faced something difficult, upsetting, challenging, frightening, new, unfamiliar, and/or potentially life altering, and you decided to (or were forced to) seek advice, counsel or help from someone you considered knowledgeable about this issue. All you have to do is give the scenario some thought before class.

8896.67 SEM: Serv & Secrec Rudesill,Dakota Welcome to Secrecy & Surveillance! There is no textbook. There will be readings posted on Carmen starting week 1 and links to read on the syllabus.

To start getting comfortable with secrecy and surveillance issues, I have a fun assignment for you before class.

Do some thinking about and come read to discuss the following hypo. Tomorrow, credible news stories report that for the last three years the National Security Agency (NSA) has been running secretly-emplaced software on cell towers on both sides of the US-Mexico border. This software has allowed the interception by NSA of all wireless communications (cell phone calls, texts, and internet data flows to phones, tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices) in a band roughly extending 20 miles into Mexico and one mile into the United States. The program is classified Top Secret, with the code-name SANDSTONE. It has not before been revealed to the public. A US government official who requested anonymity is quoted saying that the program is necessary to identify and monitor Mexican drug smugglers, human traffickers, and foreign terrorists operating in the border region. For our first class session, and without doing any research, (a) see if you can identify reasons why you think secrecy was appropriate here, and why it is potentially problematic, and (b) think about reasons the program might be legal, and why it might be legally problematic based on what you already know of US law. We will dive deeply into secrecy and surveillance this term, and talking through this hypo will get us going.

Stay safe, do your part to keep others safe, and see you in January!
