Article: Why it’s likely impossible to restore online privacy

An article from the Deseret News is worth sharing. Here are a few snippets:

Most people don’t understand how much information is being collected.
Dryer said personal information is gathered into massive databases
regularly “and to a far more pervasive extent than most people
realize, either voluntarily or involuntarily.”

… Asay notes, “…Everyone says they’re concerned about privacy, but if you give them 20 cents, they tell you whatever you want. … All the information allows us to do some amazing things.”

Europe also codified a “right to forget.” America has not.
