In 2016, Jonathon Penney – an Assistant Professor of Law at Dalhousie University, and a Research Fellow at The Citizen Lab, Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto – published an article in the Berkeley Technology Law Journal that provides evidence of “regulatory ‘chilling effects’ of Wikipedia users associated with online government surveillance.”

Penney’s findings leave readers with several questions. The most significant being, what does this mean for a democratic society?

Perhaps the answer to that question lies in the more personal question, have the post-Snowden revelations altered your online behaviour?

To find out more, I highly recommend checking out The Citizen Lab’s reports and reading Black Code by Ron Deibert.
