Security, Actually

What do you get when you bring together computer scientists with a security bent from diverse universities such as Princeton, UC San Diego, Carnegie Mellon and UC Davis? You get the Abusable Technologies Awareness Center (ATAC), a blog dedicated to an honest discussion of unexpected privacy violations or inappropriate security.

So far, there have been some interesting talk of systems security failures and public privacy problems such as facial recognition systems. Though the number of posts is pretty light, with such a heady group of contributors, this site bears RSS-bookmarking.
