TCLP 2012-09-03 The Value of Privacy

This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.

In the intro I thank Donnie for his very generous donation. He has also claimed the last custom nerd merit badge begging the question of what next; order more right now, order more on the next badge would be claimed, or explore a new premium to offer sustaining donors.

There is no listener feedback this episode.

The hacker word of the week this week is fortune cookie.

The feature this week is a rant about the unconsidered and unexpressed value of privacy. In it I mention the arguably well known quote from MetaFilter about users and free services, Ars Technica’s experiments with the apparently free content model, an op-ed I co-wrote about the lack of full privacy control for users, and Facebook’s intentional monkeying with confusing user privacy controls.
