    I would like to believe there will be more privacy in the future, but until the US government decides that consumer interest is greater than commercial interest, we won’t see European-style privacy laws in the U.S. Over in Europe, the person owns all of their data. Here in the U.S., it’s the corporation that owns all of the data. That’s a huge difference in how privacy on the internet can be achieved.

    • That’s a good point Jim. I guess I was hoping that we learn from the EU and adopt a similar policy. I realize now that this was a utopic view, and hope that after all of the discrepancies and issues that have come up over the past few years that the US realizes that our data should be ours, and takes steps toward ensuring that we have the right to permanently delete our information from the internet. I don’t really have a problem with my current data being used – as long as I leave it posted – but I hate that I can’t “disappear” if I want to!

        I don’t think your view is unrealistic at all. With users gaining more and more influence on what content they want to see on the internet the possibility is there that they will determine what does not go on the internet. The U.S. seems to be resistant to adapting European policies, no matter how effective they are (health care?), but sometimes necessity prevails and change takes place because people won’t put up with the status quo anymore. People owning their own data just makes sense, and hopefully it won’t take a major catastrophe for the U.S. to realize this and change their views on privacy.

    Great video. Good use of video resouces and nice music.
    The biggest thing of the web is making one global unity, but the hardest thing for the web is creating a global standard.

    Nice video and good match with the music. I the privacy is a big issue online. And how to deal with our data is always disturbing. As social media surges and engages us more, it may not so secure to put our data online.
