A more than a little disturbing 2 hour cnbc special on the exploding commercial surveillance state in (retail and information gathering by employers.): http://www.infowars.com/articles/bb/big_brother_big_business.htm I have a hard time with the "You're on the clock; we own you for 8-12 hours mentality so prevalent these days. A big reason I am uncomfortable in the corporate environment. Watching this story go on(51min:50) they get into big data mining/collection firms like "Axcion"(acxion?) whose privacy officer is asked" Privacy, what privacy? You have ALL my information! how do you respond to an individual who has concerns? She responds assertively "Well they(you) need to understand what we do with what it, we provide it to our clients so they can better market to you.!!! I dont want to be marketted to at all!! First wekill all the lawyers then we remove each data mining and verichip firm. My daily travels ,purchases, reading list is mine. I own every bit of what I create including my lifestyle.[devilfu]Much time as I spend online(alot) I am really starting to look at the net as "their" instrument to provoke ,collect and look back at me way too much.
