Great Quote!

Two years ago I argued that there really is no such thing as "free" anything. Everything has a hidden cost.

Earlier today I was browsing some old news feeds and I came across this fantastic quote:

"You know how everything has seemed free for the past few years? It wasn't. It's just that no one told you that instead of using money, you were paying with your personal information."
~ Joel Stein
I recommend you click the link and read the full article. You will be amazed at the amount of data that exists about you in cyberspace and the companies that are reaping enormous profits from tracking you.

Now, for all you readers who are concerned about privacy, forget it. Privacy is a myth in the 21st Century. Better get used to it.
