A Defining Issue

Based on a review in the NYTimes this morning it looks like No Place to Hide – Robert O’Harrow Jr. and Chatter, Dispatches From the Secret World of Global Eavesdropping, Patrick Radden Keefe, will be worth a read. Digital privacy is quickly becoming a defining issue – if not the defining issue – of the decade. So who does have your information and what are they doing with it?

In the past five years, what most of us only recently thought of as ”nobody’s business” has become the big business of everybody’s business. Perhaps you are one of the 30 million Americans who pay for what you think is an unlisted telephone number to protect your privacy. But when you order an item using an 800 number, your own number may become fair game for any retailer who subscribes to one of the booming corporate data-collection services. In turn, those services may be — and some have been — penetrated by identity thieves. – William Safire

I’m buying and will let you know what I think. Thanks to Diana for the pointer.
