In 2013, Edward Snowden leaked a cache of files detailing how the United States government and its allies are essentially surveilling the world. The Snowden Archive-in-a-Box (SAIB) is an offline archive of all publicly-available Snowden files - it means you can do research on these files without being watched online. The SAIB offers libraries and other institutions, a system for easily disseminating sensitive material without incorporating it into their actual collections. Our version for CRAM adds an interception device that displays the digital conversations occurring between, for instance, your phone and the SAIB, to show you what it feels like to be surveilled.
