And all of this is taking place in an environment where the very meaning of what is “private” and what is “public” is being redefined, by Facebook and other online giants such as Google, and even users themselves sometimes can’t decide what information they want to share with the world and what they don’t. Over the past few weeks, the social network has been caught at the center of a privacy maelstrom, with consumer groups attacking it — 15 of them filed a formal letter of complaint with the Federal Trade Commission late yesterday — senators sending threatening letters, and growing numbers of users canceling or deactivating their accounts over privacy concerns.

The bitter tears of the American Christian supermajority The most persecuted minority in the United States is not Muslims, African-Americans or immigrants.

Tour the World's Webcams With the Search Engine for the Internet of Things Matherly was just sending web server requests, but that kind of constant methodological probing makes many administrators uncomfortable. It’s the kind of reconnaissance work that the bad guys as well as the search engines engage in. “They put these things online and you don’t find them on Google.
