The following is an interesting collection of news items posted on BBC News site just this week about major technology companies and organizations overstepping reasonable bounds and starting to spiral out of control. The stories are becoming more frequent. For example:
faces UK probe over questionable psychology study
take legal action against UK intelligence agency GCHQ
to be sued over 'snooping'
'bullying' UK publishers
'scooping faces' from the net
So what's going on? Should citizens be more concerned? Should we be more concerned about personal 'privacy' protection? What are the implications for our future if these organizations are left to spiral out of control?
