Privacy: Living a Cached Life

“You have zero privacy anyway… Get over it.” — Scott McNealy , CEO of Sun in 1999

Scott McNealy, the CEO who should have been a stand-up says a lot of things. Many you can ignore, but when he said the aforementioned words, you knew he was right. It was only a matter of time before what was perceived as a tempest in a teapot would become a tornado, and spill into the public consciousness.

Scott, had also famously uttered that the only privacy you will have will be in your thoughts. And how prescient he was. Om Malik on Broadband : » Living a Cached Life
