Then they link to you,
Then you win. —

A reoccurring theme in the app development world is the idea that giving users 20 share options at every intersection is somehow going to increase your ‘virality coefficient’ and give you ‘hockey stick growth’.
No live Q&A with NSA about PRISM -
I thought this was a fresh news story, in which the Washington Post interviewed, or did a “Question and Answer” session with the NSA, perhaps via IM chat:
NSA explains the PRISM data-collection program
Instead. the Washington Post uploaded the now-infamous four page excerpt of PRISM documentation, but with much higher resolution than the Guardian UK. WaPo made two or three superfluous annotations e.g. how a prism can filter light passing through it.
The NSA was not available for reader questions via IRC or telephone call-in, unfortunately. I guess that is too much to hope for.
