29 January 2017
Based on this past weekend, this now appears to be unfortunately necessary.
This is a ‘Warrant Canary’ page.
As of the above date, we have not received any National Security Letters, FISA court orders, specific employer directives (including derivatives from POTUS Executive Orders), or similar means by which we are legally and/or effectively under any sort of gag order which restricts our Free Speech and First Amendment Rights.
A description for what a “Warrant Canary” is can be found on Wiki at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrant_canary as well as at the EFF: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2014/04/warrant-canary-faq and also at Canarywatch.org: https://canarywatch.org/faq.html
No specific set schedule has yet been established for how frequently this page will be updated, but it certainly will not be longer than one year.
