Apart from there is also, a joint project of The Electronic Privacy Information Center and Privacy International. I'm curious if there are other projects, online or off, facing up to this massive invasion of privacy?
Good question. I'm sure other Discordians will have other sources, but the tech culture communities tend to be very concerned with privacy issues, as they crop up all the time in dealing with technology, obviously. For an obvious (or maybe not) example: Slashdot has an ongoing topic on privacy. Kuro5hin also writes a lot on privacy (including having covered the airline story.)

As for transparency, while I agree that it's important and useful, in practice I've seen that be manipulated. For example, my credit card companies and health insurance company send me long arcane, lawyerese pamphlets "disclosing" their privacy policies. Transparency seems to me in current practice to be primarily a smokescreen for obfuscation....
