“Privacy didn’t fall like the Berlin Wall, with a cloud of cement dust and cheers. It didn’t happen over a few days but a few decades, and it didn’t fall exactly, but is falling.

There is no hiding place now, and this strikes me as something of huge and existential import. It’s like the closing of yet another frontier, a final one we didn’t even know was here.’’
