I’m a grad student, working on an assignment to raise awareness around data collection in light of the NSA revelations. Specifically, I am interested in showing/visualizing/otherwise making interactive the sort of data that people reveal to third party apps as a way of demonstrating how invasive data collection can be.
In other words, I’m trying to make the debate around NSA spying and metadata interesting and compelling to the public.
Do you know of any apps related to what I’m trying to do? Are there legal/safe/acceptable ways of implementing these ideas?
