“This is really about how ALL of your seemingly innocent
keystrokes weave a comprehensive story about your personal
desires…and how this data is exploited and monetized by the Nerds.
Every keystroke is being measured, collated, analyzed and sold
to the highest bidder. Think you are not being analyzed on your
bank’s website or your brokerage website because of
login/password protection? Think again. Ever wonder why, that
after researching pricing on an airlines’ website, [and maybe
even after “clearing” your cache and “cleaning up” your hard
drive] that an advertisement for a rental car still shows up
[at the destination airport you were researching but did NOT
even book/buy] while you are looking at college football scores
on ESPN? Because, on the internet virtually NOTHING is private. ”
This 2016 issue continues to be the same as it was in 2015 and before: We just don’t care about our privacy, until our identity is stolen or we suffer from a breach or financial loss on the Internet.
