The Eternal Value of Privacy

I was reading my twitter feeds and somehow ended up on Wil Wheaton's which led me to his latest blog post. This post referenced this Wired article entitled "The Eternal Value of Privacy."

I liked this quote:

Privacy is important because without it, surveillance information will be abused: to peep, to sell to marketers and to spy on political enemies -- whoever they happen to be at the time.


 Of course, that statement pertains to the living. However, if you reword that, it could read...

Ethics are important because without them, genealogical information can be abused.

That's my quote of the day. Think about it.
