Is Privacy Overrated?

Bruno Giussani just sketched out a great movie plot based on the idea that Google is secretly plotting to collect all the world's private information and make it public in 2010.

If you like that story, be sure to check out The Light of Other Days by Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter. It's a great book, with essentially the same story about privacy using a different premise.

My prediction? By 2010, the only people who'll have anything to lose from an Evil Search Engine releasing tons of "private" info will be politicians and other criminals. Me, I crossed the Rubicon when I cataloged my smut on LibraryThing.
