Wouldn’t it be cool if Google turned “evil” posted your searches? Or if Amazon suddenly posted everything that you’ve ever bought from them publicly.

First reaction: OMG! WTF? (No, no BBQ. That’s later.)

Evil up there is in scare quotes. I don’t think it would be evil for the most part.

It would hurt for a moment.

Like ripping off a band aid.

I think it would be liberating.

You can finally walk out of your closet.

That you built.



What does privacy buy you?
