Filed under
Linux

Not a single week goes by here in the Linux blogosphere without some assortment of news and events to keep life interesting.

More than a few Freedom Flip cocktails later, she's just now begun to write up her notes chronicling what will surely go down in history as one of the blogosphere's most somber conversations ever.

What will you do differently, Linux Girl asked bloggers, now that we know about PRISM?
