I Told You So Pt 229.9 repeater

Bruce Schneier reports:

"While privacy remains a major concern for people around the world, a majority of consumers would share personal data if they knew the information was securely protected and if sharing it would make their lives easier, according to Unisys' Global Study on the Public's Perceptions about Identity Management. "

I do seem to have been saying this for some time..
Privacy activists can't simply shake their heads in horror. They need to understand this mindset - and when it is reasonable, and when it needs to be combatted, and when more facts are needed. Otherwise they are doomed to be fighting a losing battle.
