Privacy is History

At least, it is if we’re talking about the Web. Yes, you can select privacy settings that reduce the likelihood that information will be spread. But those aren’t guarantees. So why not just assume that anything you post can be spread, and factor that into your decision whether to post it?

Sadly, Representative Andrew Weiner is learning this in front of all of us. And what makes this particularly sad is that he’s not the first politician to be in this kind of situation.

So be smarter and better informed. Make wiser choices. What you share is up to you. Well, mostly.
