Privacy and Control

(Schneier on Security)
In January, Facebook Chief Executive, Mark Zuckerberg, declared the age of privacy to be over. A month earlier, Google Chief Eric Schmidt expressed a similar sentiment. Add Scott McNealy's and Larry Ellison's comments from a few years earlier, and you've got a whole lot of tech CEOs proclaiming the death of privacy - especially when it comes to young people. It's just not true. People, including the younger generation, still care about privacy.
