Good luck trying to stuff the shiat back into that goose.

Pandora's jar was opened long ago, folks.

I'd appreciate the Mail a lot more if it didn't include multiple pix of the Klan Kardashian Klub. Not that I don't appreciate the T&A, but I have yet to understand what they actually do to justify the constant attention.

Jeff Bezos owns about 17% of shares himself.  The next largest shareholder is Vanguard with 5.75%.  The 10th largest is Geode Capital Management LLC with less that 1%.

What this is telling you is that "20 groups" don't mean shiat.  I own shares.  I could form a group and demand they set aside 5% of profits to send me booze.  Hmm.  It's crazy... but it just might work.

Anonymity left the building years ago. Short of dropping completely off the grid, your mug is out there to be identified and exploited.

Bezos is Big Brother.

Which is in many ways a return to how it's always been.

Absent the ~200-year-span of the industrial revolution, and a few large cities in antiquity (Imperial Rome, Beijing, Renaissance-era London & Paris), just about everybody you would run into knew who you were - and who your parents were, and what shenanigans you got up to as a kid, and who you were boinking on the side.

Even escaping your feudal lord and moving to a new village just meant that everybody in the new place would quickly know who you were & what you were doing there, and would be suspicious of you for years since you were a 'mysterious stranger'.

The only difference now is that some random stranger on the other side of the world, who you will never run into in the flesh, can dig up that information too.

Grew up in smalltown, USA in the 1950s, hasn't changed.

Everybody needs to read David Brin's book The Transparent Society.  He detailed this in much greater extent than I can, and proposed a number of ways of improving the situation with the recognition that the technology is here and isn't going away.

China is doing some legit dystopian things with facial recognition technology.  It is down right terrifying.

Haven't checked if Google's Picassa still exists, but its facial recognition was scary good. Grouped the grandkid's photos correctly from 6 mo. old to 12 yr. old.
