So what about you Heff? Didja take a look at the MIT Kerberos thing?
I've been really excited about it since I learned about it in school and seldom find anyone that is as interested in talking about it as I am.
The goal of MITs KIT consortium is to put people's personal data fully whithin their own control.
Here look: See Alice? All that stuff in the yellow boxes on the left of this image belong to Alice. All the folks on the right want to acess Alice's Personal Data Store.
You are right, if a service on the WWW is set up for it, it's all digested and regurgitated. Well, that's the way that "Web 2.0" is supposed to work. In adition to the "Semantic Web" aspects of this "Web 2.0", there is also this concept (the reality, really) of the "Internet of Things". That's devices that belong to you that might have your PII and SPI attached to them that are left on all the time. These days that could be things like your refrigerator.
But it's definitely things like municipal utilities and stuff like train systems.
Anyhow, I'm interested in hearing what you think of it.

See, but now you've stumbled into another facet of the NSA that endlessly invokes my aggression. Simply by saying that you don't use a smart phone, but an old phone tied to an old alias, and that you are off paper - you've given information. By NOT giving any you've given some.
Throw that fact into the mix with your posting history and let a few algorhytms play around with it and up pops a probability matrix and personality profile linked together with all sorts of "potentials".
As you well know, in this day and age of our war on Terror - "potential" is enough grounds for justifying anything at all.
Once upon a time a man could walk out into the wilderness and live separate from society if he wished, unknown to any and all. Now? Now he's nightly tracked by heat seeking drones or satellites. He is unaware of the fact that his secrets aren't secret.
That's why I have so much pride of being totally nuts. I am all over the map and I honestly pray that somewhere, deep in the bowels of some underground bunker, there is an entire team of behavioralists looking at my data collation and analysis with blank stares and lost expressions.

The thing to do is come up with our own new language. That cannot be deciphered.
