Welcome to the Age of Privacy Nihilism

Welcome to the Age of Privacy Nihilism
Google and Facebook are easy scapegoats, but companies have been collecting, selling, and reusing your personal data for decades, and now that the public has finally noticed, it’s too late. The personal-data privacy war is long over, and you lost.

Millions of Flickr images were sucked into
a database called MegaFace.

One day in 2005, a mother in Evanston, Ill., joined Flickr. She uploaded some pictures of her children, Chloe and Jasper. Then she more or less forgot her account existed.

I used to be really popular on fakebook


I had thousands of people sending me "friend me invitations" it bombed my inbox, so I wrote every one of them suckers and told them"I would get back to them as soon as I got back from a very dangerous mission. Then I never wrote them again."
