Do you think privacy is dead?
Himself - Unofficial Spokesman, Hacktivist Group Anonymous:
It may be certainly dying. Whether or not it... For privacy to remains dead unless it has a fundamental shift in the dynamics by which are decided. I mean, the only effective response is to monitor and change the behavior and the tendencies of the intelligence industry, law enforcement and all that and even companies. And that's very unlikely.

Excellent review of social and political problems regarding digital privacy
Excellent review of the political and social changes in *digital* privacy for the past 13 years since 9/11. The director goes into great detail on how Websites have constantly shifted toward acquiring and disseminating more information as time has gone on since 9/11 and how this information can, and is, being revealed to the government on a regular basis. What is more disturbing is how much we thought that either a password or a privacy change on Facebook to "Friends Only" doesn't actually protect us, totally, from government or corporate dissemination of who we are.
The director also points out the substantial moral problem of when we are allowed to forget our secrets and to let them lie in our past. 5 years? 10 years? 3 months? When are we entitled to have those embarrassing pictures taken at age 14 taken off the Internet search engine results (from, say, Google)? When it's been 10 years? What about adults? Do they deserve to have privacy of past-acts (good conduct or misconduct)? This is a matter not currently under substantial discussion in the Congress and the director points out that Congress is the only legislature in the US that can adequately make laws on these subjects.
Again, worth seeing once so that you learn what exactly those "terms" are that you agreed to.
