The Wired headline sums it up nicely -- "Facebook Hires Up Three of Its Biggest Privacy Critics":

> In December, Facebook hired Nathan White away from the digital rights nonprofit Access Now, and put him in the role of privacy policy manager. On Tuesday of this week, lawyers Nate Cardozo, of the privacy watchdog Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Robyn Greene, of New America's Open Technology Institute, announced they also are going in-house at Facebook. Cardozo will be the privacy policy manager of WhatsApp, while Greene will be Facebook's new privacy policy manager for law enforcement and data protection.

I know these people. They're ethical, and they're on the right side. I hope they continue to do their good work from inside Facebook.
