Let's make some art!

Hey cmon, the EFF's designer is making art, not one of their lawyers. Art spreads awareness and can boil complex problems down to a more easily understood form... I see nothing meriting so much snark.

If you'd clicked the last two links, you would have seen the legal work the EFF has been doing.

Here, let me try:

"Hey, someone's doing something I think is useless about a government policy with which I disagree!

I'll post a cynical, sarcastic comment about it!"

You gotta admit - the format does define the message. Think of it this way - if you see some guy with a cardboard sign standing out in front of an office building railing on about how the NSA is in bed with AT&T and wiretapping America, he's a paranoid freak. However, if he dons a snappy chapeau and draws a political cartoon the size of a storefront, he's got a point. Hmm.

Love that they gave Mark Klein a "whistleblowing" credit at the end.

Someone wrote my comment for me: cool cartoon, and good soundtrack, though I was mostly thinking through the entire video. "Come on, I want to see the cartoon.", not that the process wasn't cool. I'm kind of impatient like that though.
