Some wonderfully choice quotes from this cyber security essay by Dan Geer. Quite long, but (somewhat?) clearly illustrates the challenges of living in a society where there is so much data about you easily accessible, even if you don’t actually intentionally contribute. Additionally, he covers the increasing struggle how we conform to these loss of freedoms which is the antithesis of being an American, yet we keep doing it. While he has a call out to fight it, as far as I can see, there aren’t any easy/obvious solutions, nor did he provide any.
In the 21st century, we have a physical army of volunteers but a digital army of conscripts.
