Doctorow: The Curious Case of Internet Privacy (Technology Review)
Posted Jun 14, 2012 8:49 UTC (Thu) by ortalo (subscriber, #4654)
I also think that privacy-everywhere (in the computer hacker sense) may be an impairement in the long run. (Note that some law enforcement professionals even see this as a problem.) But clearly, publishing personal information without asking for anything in return (especially the identity of those who access or use the information) does not sound sensible either to me.
NB: Investigation power organization in the legal system (of democratic countries) may certainly deserve more study from our open source security community.
 What about "cookie exchange"? At least we could gather very precise information about companies doing users tracking on the Internet...
