Privacy?

I’ve been catching up on my GoogleReader feeds today and noticed these from BoingBoing. You may have already seen them, but they were located very close to one another in the feed, so that caught my attention as well.

Man who claims FBI is after him puts entire life online

Report: Microsoft building apps to personally identify anyone online

The first one is kind of amusing, until you get to the bottom of the story and realize that this man’s website has hits from the “Pentagon, the Secretary of Defense, and the Executive Office of the President, among others.” So apparently, they are watching.

The second one is just plain creepy. Fortunately, there seem to be several people pointing out that not only does it violate privacy, it’s probably illegal in many places.
