Fascinating and hilarious video [and series called The Guild]. Makes fun of MMOs and immersive environments and the current ‘computer culture’. Digital natives making fun of digital natives. 🙂

Here is what I found on Bill Moyers’ site:

Rick Karr on Internet Surveillance

Congress is still deadlocked over the Bush Administration’s efforts to listen in to phone calls and read emails without search warrants. The sticking point is whether or not to allow private citizens to sue telecom conglomerates, the huge firms that provide most of us with phone and internet service – and helped the Administration spy on us. Now, the Administration wants to try to spy on Americans in another way. My colleague Rick Karr has this to bring you up to speed.

The project is called Project Reynard, and the report may be downloaded here in pdf format.
