Our Data, Ourselves—Bruce Schneier

In the information age, we all have a data shadow.

With these words, Bruce Schneier opens an almost poetic call to action for people to recognize their data, its vulnerability and the need to take back control of that data from those who amass it, control it and peruse it almost at will. He admits it will be a long, hard slog, and that it would be easy to do nothing, but I think that it’s not only worth the effort, but it may be the paramount struggle in civil liberties this millennium.
