Vanishing Privacy (NYT) & Net Aids Dictatorships (TED)

 Abandoned houses, Falmouth, VA The first of these is an article that appeared in the New York Times on March 17, 2010. The article discusses how we expose our identities and characteristics on social networking sites, how that information can be aggregated and interpreted, and reiterates the maxim that essentially nothing is private on the Internet. The second is an interesting Ted Talk about how the Internet aids dictatorships. One way is to provide services and information to people and the other is, in the same vein as the article, to provide information about the people using the Internet.
