This is an interesting perspective on tech and privacy. I often think about how the rich lived during the Golden Age (thanks to my Titanic research and experiences), and yeah, those servants knew EVERYTHING. Same is still true today and I can see how new tech has and will take the place of those servants.
Like Krugman, I don’t have much to hide. Probably loss of privacy should bother me more than it does, but the biggest downside I see personally is an increased possibility of identity theft or plain-old-fashioned residential burglary. Which is Something to Consider, of course.
