GeekSpeak – will we lose all our online privacy? Join the Discussion Saturday April 8th at 12pm SLT

What does ‘Born in the USA!’ mean to you? Right now being American means that you have less online privacy than the people of North Korea.  Your ISP now has the right to store and to sell all your online activity, every little thing.  If you look for erotica online will you get ads for it?  If you don’t log in for a week can you expect a visit from burglars?

Probably the rest of the world will follow America.  So what will it mean when every detail of your online life can be sold, mixed, data-mined and resold on a whim?  Perhaps you think it is a good thing.  Perhaps it will stop illegal activity from being planned online.  Or perhaps you are terrified but have no idea how to fight back.  Maybe we can give you some tips.  Or maybe we should all just run for the hills.

Come and join us in GeekSpeak.  Remember though that nothing we say is private.
