Supercookies! That sounds so yummy! A quick read of this linked post will give you a clear idea of just how complicated Big Data and tracking have become. And for people who just don’t seem to care very much about their privacy, the remedies are even more confusing.
There was a time – eons ago it seems, when technology users had to know some technical stuff just to turn on a computer, load programs, and then output the results for a useful purpose. With advances in technology, programming, and digital communications, most – if not all- of these activities are automatic. We trust that the makers of our devices will design them with our privacy and security in mind.
The revenue opportunities that come from technology continue to multiply exponentially while similar opportunities to give users more control of their identities are being passed-up or left to as yet to be developed authorities.
