Here’s a good piece by David Frum – Privacy was good while it lasted.
This sums it up, from his piece:
“Granted, most of us are protected somewhat by others’ lack of interest in our secrets. But that can change in an instant if our oafish behavior is oafish enough. A few seconds of oafish video can generate a lifetime of humiliation — that will torture the humiliated person long after it has ceased to amuse the people who once laughed at him. It happened to Mitt Romney. It can happen to you”.
