    Trust me, it's worth the look.

    And indeed it is worth looking at, along with Patrick Schitt's contribution of the background documentation.

    I found the "smackdown" a refreshing antidote to much recent discussion about young adults and their attitudes about privacy. Perhaps some of it is hyperbolic; anyone associated with the Internet back in the days when it was the Arpanet has similar ties. But let's look at the larger issue.
