While researching an editorial relating to privacy I found a great essay from former Apple executive Jean-Louis Gassée titled, "Online Privacy: Nothing to Fear." He talks about privacy both from the government and from corporate powers, and encourages us to support groups that look out for our privacy like the ACLU. And don't forget to vote for candidates who support privacy (when you can find them). It's a good read.
