Google CEO Eric Schmidt has been quoted as saying, "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place."
Now that you've read quite a bit about the origins of the Internet and definitions of "privacy," do you agree with this statement? Why or why not? Is there a difference between "private" and "secret"? After all, there are lots of things that aren't secret - going to the bathroom, for example - that usually we still would like to be private.
So, in other words, how do you feel about some of the loosening of privacy controls and more open displays of what were once considered private behaviors on the web?
