But think of it this way: of all hundreds of thousands of generations
of humans that have suffered all manner of indignities caused by lack
of privacy or lack of access to information, ours is the first to enjoy
such a free environment as the enternet.

It was pointed out to me offline that we are not that difficult to find.
Someone came up with information about me that *I* didnt even
remember. {8^D Now of course, I am an information nudist, posted
my home address on extropians, etc. Looks like its a great tradeoff,
some privacy for the benefits of the web. Ill buy! spike
