Trading Privacy For Convenience
Ray Ozzie is right when he said that we got what we asked for when we told the government we were scared and that they should do whatever they wanted to make us feel safer. But we also got what we asked for when we traded our privacy for convenience, trusting these corporations to look out for our best interests.
We're living in a world of feudal security. And if you watch "Game of Thrones," you know that feudalism benefits the powerful -- at the expense of the peasants.
