I don't foresee transparency getting to the point that it is legal for dirty
old men to leer at people while they are in various states of undress within
the privacy of their own homes. Perverts will be perverts, but I can't see
their behavior ever getting the sanction of law.

Sure, once tiny and powerful surveillance technology is in the hands of the
masses we will all be vulnerable to the inquisitive and prurient interests
of our neighbors. But the same tech that threatens us will also be there to
protect us. It is, of course, a double edged sword. So you watched me
lounging in the nude last night? Well guess what? Someone watched you,
watching me and now *you're* going to jail. Nyah, nyah.

>Wow nasty double masectomy scars your mother has.. can't she afford breast

See above.

>Good morning Jim.. we all saw you materbating on camera last night.. and
>this is not good for our corporate image, your terminated.

1. You broke the law by spying on me while I was, er, "massaging" myself.
2. Firing me for doing things on my own time which are not illegal is
against the law. So now, I will wait til the $billion IPO and sue the
bejesus out of the company for invasion of privacy, wrongful termination,
intentional infliction of emotional distress and any number of federal civil
rights violations and...job? I don't need no stinkin' job! Thanks a bunch

>Hey George.. we should have Insta-patented that idea we discused last night
>over a few beers.. Suzie has just stolen the whole deal.

Yeah Bob, but good thing for us our whole conversation was recorded, as well
as the fact that Suzie was listening in. All we have to do is submit this
data to the Patent Office and her patent never gets issued. Or better yet,
we could just sit back and see if the idea actually works. If so, we just
wait til the $billion IPO and sue the bejesus out of her for interference
with prospective business advantage, unfair competition, misappropriation of
trade secrets, commercial espionage and...idea? We don't need no stinkin'
idea! Thanks a bunch Suzie!!

>Knock Knock. hello!!! We noticed YOU use this non biodegradable tampon..
>please have a free sample of our green friendly tampon !

Hey thanks! It's free *and* green? Just what I was looking for. I'm
really glad you were able to anticipate my needs like that! Sure beats the
days when I had to go the the market and hunt up and down the aisle for just
the right kind of widget.

>Damnit I'm sick of never getting a "date" because my penis is too small..
>Why cant they get to know me first!

Would you really be interested in someone who would not date you because of
that? Would you really be interested in someone who would *break the law*
and violate your privacy to find that out about you? If you are that
desperate, chances are you would never get a date no matter how big you are.
