Classified information obtained by the Washington Post and The Guardian has revealed a massive, warrantless online surveillance system in use by a US military intelligence agency, giving access to Americans' search history, emails, live chats and more.

The 41-page PowerPoint presentation, which has been verified by both papers and published almost concurrently on Thursday evening, outlines details of a previously undisclosed program known as PRISM, which allows the fabled military intelligence agency to harvest massive amounts of data on everything from electronic correspondence to file transfers."

A number of us where I work are cube dwellers. The good thing about most modular cube systems is the table rails run from floor to the top. It takes about 15- 30 minutes to convert a standard desk high cube to be an elbow high one. Will need a screwdriver & a hammer.
