BigTech vs BigGov
The fact that NSA is tracking targets with Google cookies says volumes about the extent to which BigTech firms and marketing organizations today are as, if not more invasive, in tracking the public than what the NSA is doing.  Interesting that the Showden revelations have created such a firestorm around NSA, but have raised very few questions  about how much intelligence is being gathered about citizens.

The Web represents a bounty of free information, matched only by the retreat in privacy that came with it.
